Installing a new JDS and JSS cannot find the JSS URL

So I am installing a JDS and JSS for the first time in a test environment before production deployment and I hit a snag in the installation.

I downloaded the JDS installer.pkg and in the JDS enrollment it asks for a JDS hostname JSS URL, JSS username and password.

My question is what to put as my JSS URL? I tried the local machines address and it said it couldn't resolve.

What am I missing?

@anickless the JSS URL is the same URL you use to get to the JSS. Typically it is like this:

https://jss.yourdomain.com:8443

After installed JSSInstaller.pkg you should go to https://127.0.0.1:8443/ first and navigate to Setting >> Global Management >> JSS URL and set the URL first. Then when you install the JDS, you can input the messages what you set on the website.

I am getting the same error, but on a different server that is not my JSS. I just want a local JDS for one of my customers who has some large software installers that I don't want to be downloaded from my JSS, which we host in a colo near downtown Dallas. I know that everything I put into the JDS installer is correct, so I don't understand what's going on. I guess I will just contact JAMF support when it's not a holiday.

@howie_isaacks how would a JSS work if not enrolled into a JSS?
