We have an all-Mac (and a few Linux) fleet. I've been tasked with making
our system logins more secure. Rotate every 90 days, password reuse
rules, password strength rules... basically the usual. I'm concerned
that this combined with similar requirem...
I have a small fleet of OSX machines (~40) running everything from 10.9
to 10.11. On roughly half the machines, Chrome auto-update fails.
Specifically, a disk image mounts on the users desktop and the dmg
window opens for the user. It's like they dow...
I use Casper Imaging (9.82) in target disk mode to image my machines.
Today I've been running across the strangest issue. There has been some
strange issues reformatting drives over target disk mode, but I thought
I worked that out. Then I tried to i...
In the ol' Windows day, everything was bound to AD. Everyone did it from
5 person companies to 5k. It was just the way of the world. But now is
the time of the Mac and The Cloud. If a majority (or maybe all) of your
software is SaaS, the device becom...
We're experimenting with ways to get the best performance out of imaging
our OSX machines from a local JDS. Has anyone tried to do imaging from a
JDS to MacBook's using Jumbo Frames? Pros? Cons? Did it help
performance? We're also going to be adding ...
After hunting high and low based on some of the suggestions here, I
found the issue: A configuration profile set to restrict Disk Images to
Read-only Configuration policies This was originally set up with the
best of intentions and the belief that in...
@pblake you are, of course, correct in that Casper is one of the more
major common factors. I do have some restricted apps but they are all
full name, ex: "Boot Camp Assistant.app". I've been hunting around for
permission issues but I can't find anyt...
@bentoms interesting link, thanks! @bpavlov Fair point. I wonder then if
it possible to push usernames/passwords to OSX from another service via
JAMF? @gachowski mentions config profiles which I honestly haven't
used.... but it'd be an interesting ex...
@bentoms Yes, we do image from JDS's regularly, everyday. Yes, we're
aware that WebDAV sucks. Unfortunately our JDS's are Linux based so the
script will not work for us. @alexjdale The bottleneck previously is
Network I/O. A single client being image...
