Im setting up a policy to configure the default dock. I've tried the policy as once per computer, once per user, and ongoing.
The dock is modified for all local accounts, but when an AD user logs in, it just goes back to the apple defaults, not my custom one.
The way we accomplish this is by setting up the defaults we want in a test profile and than capturing the ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.Dock.plist with composer and use the FEU and FUT options so that the user template that new AD profiles are built from contains that dock instead of Apple's default.
You can also use dockutil once you have added a dock.plist into the User Template in /System/Library/User Template/(language)/Library/Preferences/ - make sure you're careful about the permissions assigned to anything you add into the UT.
You might also want to reference the thread here about dockfixup.
Dock items can also be managed with configuration profiles.
Yeah I've read that creating a package with composer would work.
I'm not near a computer with casper admin tools, what are the FET and FEU options?
It just seems silly to have to create a package for it when theres options in casper policies to modify the dock. (I guess they just dont work as advertised.)
@kevincnow Were you able to fix the issue with no access ? I am getting it for Docs and Downloads along with getting the additional Downloads folder as well.
It's weird because I haven't have this issue until now, I used to just delete the dockfixup plist and it would be fine.
All feedback is appreciated.
