Is anyone having a issue uploading Big Sur (11.6) to Jamf Pro (Version 10.32.2).
I have created the pkg file using the MegaPKGr.zsh script as I have done for previous versions and uploaded the package to my Jamf cloud instance, although the blue indicator bar travels the full 100%, it just seems to sit at that point and never puts the pkg in our depository ?
The file is obviously big at around 12.44GB and I don’t have issue uploading other pkg’s so wondering if a issue with just us or anyone else.
Thanks for any help.
I highly recommend https://scriptingosx.com/2021/06/download-full-installer/ for retrieving the InstallAssistant pkg for BigSur. I'm not on Jamf Cloud, but the package generated uploads to my local dp and AWS instance without issue.
haven't experienced this issue & I've used megapkgr with 11.6 with multiple successful uploads to various jamf cloud instances. For troubleshooting sake, try uploading the 11.6 InstallAssistant.pkg from Mr.Macintosh - https://mrmacintosh.com/macos-big-sur-full-installer-database-download-directly-from-apple/
Ive uploaded both macOS Big Sur 11.6 and MacOS Monterey 12.0beta6 to our Jamf Cloud (10.30.1) using MegaPKGr with no issues (it does sit there for ages processing, so I normally leave it uploading over night, but it shows as b being completed fine by the morning).
Doesn't help your situations, but at least you know its possible
@Hugonaut yes that's the one I'm trying to upload, the 11.6 install package from Mr. Macintosh.
It completes the file upload process and it just sits at the package upload screen with the blue upload bar at 100%. So the pkg never gets uploaded. The cancel and save button stay there and I click save a second time and it starts the upload blue progress bar all over again.
Before it was 11.2 but it finally worked.
Hopefully eventually it will work.
I've seen issues where people did the upgrade from system preferences software updates and like 90% through the process is just stops , we don't know what is going on but eventually I have to wipe the system and reinstall from scratch so that's why I wanna get the packages up on the server so if they want to upgrade I could push the 11.6 app package to a users computer and hopefully it prevents any further of these dead Bug Sur upgrades from happening.
If you all are trying to stage the installer on a client then perhaps the erase-install script from Graham Pugh could be an alternative versus pulling it down from your dist. point? I've never had good luck putting large multi gigabyte files on mine as it either fails outright or it gets into this weird half stage some of you are experiencing now.
