Hi, I'm new to JAMF. I have one task to do is to upgrading OS from 10.14.4 to 10.14.6. As i found a lot of guide but they are .app but if i download the upgrade from Apple it is coming with .dmg than .pkg. There is no .app so all the commend i found till now are not able to use. Anyone got any advise?
When you say it is not working, what's the error message you receive when you push it out?
One workaround is to use Composer to package it up in /Users/Shared or similar, and then use a command in 'Files and Processes' to actually perform the installation - we have needed to use that in the past.
As you're new to Jamf I would recommend trying it with a "Patch Management Policy".
First, you go to Patch Management, click on "new" and add macOS.
You have to upload the latest "macOSUpdCombo10.14.6.dmg" or "macOSUpd10.14.6.dmg" and add it as a definition.
Then create a smart group for devices that are not 10.14.6 and create a patch policy containing the definition, scoping the smart group you just created.
You should set the Patch Policy to "Install Automatically" (and set other options to your preference).
I use a Policy: Apple Security Updates
- General (Enabled, Startup, Login, Logout, Recurring Check-in and Once Per Computer.
- Software updates
- Apple's Software Update Server
- Restart Options (Current Startup Disk, Restart if a package or update requires it, 5 Minutes
- Maintenance (Updates Inventory and Flush User Caches)
