QuickAdd App Failed

New Contributor

Not sure what to do here?

The installation failed

The Installer can't create the receipt for "QuickAdd"

This is for Yosemite.

Are you creating the QuickAdd in Recon on a domain user account? For whatever reason a domain account won't work for building the QuickAdd package. Try logging in with a local user to build it. (I spin up VMs with VMware Fusion for stuff like this.)

+1 especially if you've got ESXi.

Or switch to your JAMF management account.

I recently ran into a system, running Yosemite 10.10.1, that would not work with recon/quickadd. We did some troubleshooting and found it was during the actual recon stage (jamf recon command) it would always fail at a certain point which was usually when it was searching for .app's and would give a load of errors in console.

What we eventually did was made a quickadd package with 9.63 and it worked, being our system is currently running 9.61. After it joined the binary was downgraded automatically to our current 9.61

Is it a new enrollment or a re-enrollment? I had a similar issue with re-enrollment and the only way I could get it to quick add again was to delete the record out of the JSS.

jjones +10

but what happens to the old Macs when they upgrade to Yosemite.
They would work with jam but I wonder if surprises are coming.
