last friday I created the new config for the latest Big Sur 11.6.3 update but unfortunately I forgot to correct the year in the deferal window. So I set the requiredInstallationDate to 2021-02-04T00:00:00Z. The impact was, that the window opened and popped each 30 seconds new, until i unscoped the config for the MacBooks.
Now I run in the problem that the affected macbooks cant find any softwareupdate. It doesnt play a role which way we try.
Already tried to search trough the appstore, terminal with --fetch-full-installer. The MacBooks stays in the finding loop for multiple hours.
On one MacBook i deleted everything what have to do with nudge. Restarted the MacBook multiple times but the issue still persist. Anyone an idea how to solve this issue?
Since this issue last friday, the macbooks also lost the connection to jamf Pro Cloud what is really strange.
Thanks in advance,
I had the same issue, I don't think it's nudge related. It's more like an Apple bug. I wrote a little script to kill/restart several softwareupdate services. Use it at your own risk.
#!/bin/bash pid1=$(pgrep SoftwareUpdateNotificationManager) echo "$pid1" pid3=$(pgrep com.apple.preferences.softwareupdate.remoteservice) echo "$pid3" pid4=$(pgrep com.apple.MobileSoftwareUpdate.CleanupPreparePathService) echo "$pid4" pid5=$(pgrep com.apple.MobileSoftwareUpdate.UpdateBrainService) echo "$pid5" if [ "$pid1" = "" ]; then echo "pid1 is empty" else kill -9 "$pid1" echo "pid1 was killed" fi if [ "$pid3" = "" ]; then echo "pid3 is empty" else kill -9 "$pid3" echo "pid3 was killed" fi if [ "$pid4" = "" ]; then echo "pid4 is empty" else kill -9 "$pid4" echo "pid4 was killed" fi if [ "$pid5" = "" ]; then echo "pid5 is empty" else kill -9 "$pid5" echo "pid5 was killed" fi launchctl kickstart -k system/com.apple.softwareupdated echo "com.apple.softwareupdated kickstarted" exit 0
