I've just installed JAMF PRO 10 as a test on one of the Mac minis and I've followed all the instructions but how do I access the JSS? I ran the JAMF PRO installer.pkg and no browser opened up for me to in put the activation code. Also do I need to create a database with in mysql 8? The JAMF PRO admin guide doesn't cover this aspect. Can someone help?
Here is how you create the database:
Also, do not default your database password to jamfsw03. It is not secure.
To access Jamf Pro you could open network port 8443 and forward it to your internal IP. Then add an A record in your domain to point to the Jamf Server IP. You always want a FQDN for your Jamf server.
To access your Jamf on your server you need to open Safari and type in https://localhost:8443
Have you considered having Jamf host your instance? Not questioning your abilities, but if you are considering putting this in production, you need to have a backup system in place, and the JSS needs to grow as your device count grows... which may involve clustering it with multiple Tomcat Web Apps.
The JAMF Admin guide is geared towards what you do with JAMF Pro after installation. You should follow this guide for the setup:
That guides you through:
There are links to a separate kb article regarding setting up Java and SQL that is updated often.
To test deploying packages, you'll also need to setup and configure a distribution point:
Once everything is completed, you should be able to access your JSS at https://hostname on your internal network. If you want to setup access from the Internet as well, then this is a good guide:
Good luck with your testing!
@Zohaib24 The way I outlined doing it was a FQDN is basic networking most routers should be able to do. It is a matter of setting up a forward of port 8443 on your router to the IP of your Jamf Server (which should be static).
Setting up a FQDN is pretty easy too. Get your public IP address and add that as an A record and give it a name (i.e. Jamf Pro). Then you can navigate to your Jamf instance anywhere in the world.
If I were you, I would put your Jamf in a Windows VM (Server 2016) or a Linux VM on your Mac Mini. OSX sucks when it comes to Jamf Pro.
I would be willing to help you if you would like. Shoot me an email at email@example.com and we could set something up. If you even want, I can give you a site on my Jamf test server to play with.
