When I push a policy to deploy software in Catalina, the client system runs the policy, mounts the share but errors out while copying the package. Gets "cp: /Volumes/jamf-repo/Packages/Firefox 74.0.pkg: Operation not permitted" Anybody else having this issue?
I have mounted the share in the GUI with the same user used by Jamf and I can access and copy the package. Kinda stumped.
Solved! Go to Solution.
@iVoidWarrantiez I can't say why you're hitting that error, but I can recommend you look at enabling http (preferably https) content delivery from your DP. It should provide much better download performance since you're eliminating the overhead of mounting/unmounting the file system.
i never got deep into solving this because i have 3 https servers spun up, but you need to create a whitelist / pppc profile for samba or mounted drives if im not mistaken and something else, I can't find the post but somebody on here had a great deal of knowledge on solving your problem.
i 2nd sdagley, move to HTTPs it will make your deployments much smoother
I'm seeing this randomly as well on our Catalina systems. I have been pushing to move to HTTP/HTTPS since I started in my new position several months ago. Mounting SMB shares to copy files down is a clumsy and archaic way of doing things. I can't wait until we switch out to HTTP/S for the share. I know it can have its own share of issues, but it generally works much smoother from my experience in other places using Jamf Pro.
