Jamf 10.25.2. I have a prestage enrollment configured to create a local admin and skip account creation, I am joining the domain by configuration profile during enrollment. With Catalina, this allows me to DEP enroll, bind and drops me at a login screen when I can then login using domain credentials and allow the rest of the configuration scripts to complete setup. In Big Sur this configuration does not skip the account creation step and I am forced to create a local account.
Has anyone got this sort of setup working?
@adolfsson just to clarify, does this mean that the PreStage has to remain clear of profiles or was simply removing the profiles and then reapplying them enough?
Did you find out if Jamf has this listed as a Product Issue they are working to resolve or not?
I had a case open with Jamf Support but ended up having to drop it unresolved.
I too have been able to skip account creation from the pre-stage. I am installing 5-6 config profiles from prestage too.
Jamf 10.27 - cloud hosted - installing BigSur. Tried zero touch imaging on 55 machines and 25 completed by themselves (all 55 skipped account creation) - the others complained about the the installer being from an unknown source so that can be worked out for next time.
We do not try to bind the computers during pre-stage so that may be a significant difference. We use Cisco AMP and if a unnamed or mis-named computer joins AMP it creates duplicate entries so we try to control the naming - binding - AMP install order so we don't have to delete the dupes.
