We recently started rolling out JAMF at my company, as a replacement for MaaS360 and Munki. Currently, we're in the first phase, which is rolling out JAMF for MDM and maintaining Munki for package management while we finish setting up self-service and ironing out some of the problems we're having.
Currently several of the computers that are enrolled in JAMF are shutting down after half-hour idle time. I haven't been able to establish a pattern yet, and to the best of my knowledge, it's not affecting every computer.
I can fix it on the computers that are experiencing it by using the following commands
sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/.GlobalPreferences com.apple.autologout.AutoLogOutDelay -int 0 sudo defaults delete /Library/Preferences/.GlobalPreferences.plist com.apple.autologout.AutoLogOutDelay
but I was wondering if there's somewhere I should look that I'm not to make sure JAMF isn't setting a flag somewhere, or if there's a known conflict with JAMF and Munki where I should make the move off of Munki sooner rather than later.
Solved! Go to Solution.
This is not supposed to be the default; by default, that option should be unchecked.
We had this filed under PI-001308, which was resolved in 9.81, but I just retested it in 9.98 and found that the behavior is back again, so I've reopened it under PI-003978.
The workaround is what @StoneMagnet suggested: Go back into the configuration profile's Login Window payload and uncheck the "Log out users after:" option, save the profile, and redeploy it to the scoped machines and the issue should stop.
Additionally, please get in touch with Support to have a case created or create a case using the My Support section of Jamf Nation requesting to have the case attached to PI-003978 if you have not done so already.
