I just wanted advice from the Jamf community as options for pushing out OSX update solutions. Currently I'm using a Apple server with SUS to push out approved updates and Jamf policy that checks in with this SUS server. But it doesnt work with High Sierra
So thinking forward. Does anyone have a solution thats been implemented for High Sierra ( PS, our usrs dont have admin rights to there machines )
@Quan.nong What version of macOS are you running on your server? High Sierra will still pull updates from a SUS. A drawback to the Apple version of SUS however is that it doesn't provide updates for OS versions newer than what's on the server. If you use the NetSUS 4.2.1 tool Jamf makes available it includes a version of the Reposado implementation of Apple's SUS which will server updates through High Sierra: NetSUS
@Quan.nong I stopped using Server.app with Sierra so I don't know offhand if the High Sierra version includes the Software Update Server component any more. Given that Apple has been saying it's deprecated since before Sierra came out despite still using it to serve updates in High Sierra I would not bet on it, and would recommend a NetSUS instead.
The NetSUS page has good documentation links. It's really pretty simple to get up and running, the biggest trick is usually the non-intuitive "Ensure that computers install..." checkbox in the SUS configuration screen is the option that actually tells the NetSUS to download updates from Apple. You'll also find several threads on Jamf Nation about NetSUS, and usually a quick response to any questions posted here.
@ginakung I haven't tried 5.6 myself, but Apple has been very clear that the feature set of Server app is being greatly reduced in Mojave: Prepare for changes to macOS Server. They've also been saying for several years that the Caching service is the replacement for Software Update Service, despite considerable differences in their configurability, so I'm not surprised to see that document does not even mention SUS.
