Thaws a Deep Freeze Partition and software update

New Contributor

Hi all,

We are using deep freeze to protect the Mac and now start to use Jamf Pro to manage our Mac. 

We found a issue is how to thaws the deep freeze partition and run Software update , after that freeze it again.

I want to try , but will planning the policy, I think it will need to reboot few times , will it break the policy running?

@clothoest Yes, if you restart while a policy is running it won't be logged as completed.

If you have a process that requires multiple restarts you could deploy a LaunchDaemon and script combo that will run when the Mac boots up (I'm guessing you're not using FileVault) and writes a log file to keep track of where in the process it is and performs each step locally on the Mac instead of trying to do it via a Jamf Policy.
