Not sure what the deal is, I was just doing some testing of policies in Self Service, and noticed that the never seem to finish. You can see the progress bar download the dmg or pkg. then it changes to "Running Policy "example"' and there is sits....any ideas? I thought it was my new packages I made, but it is doing it with older policies with older packages from last year too.
Solved! Go to Solution.
What JSS version are you on?
I've seen this happen where the DP didn't cleanly unmount during a past policy and then when it attempts to remount for a new policy it hangs since it can't mount something that is already mounted. A ```
sudo ls -a /Volumes/
``` should show you whether or not you've got something like that going on.
If you are on 9.3x or earlier I've seen inventory updates that hang indefinitely in self service cause this behavior. If you're on 9.4 your inventory updates happen in the background so that wouldn't come into play here.
