We use DEP for setting up computers that come out-of-the-box, but as of
El Capitan (and our upgrade to 9.81) there is a long delay between when
the DEP server acknowledges that a Mac should be enrolled in Casper,
gets the jamf binary, and executes th...
We're currently planning to upgrade our JSS from 9.65 to the 9.81. Has
anyone ever had a failed upgrade, or had things go awry with this sort
of upgrade and done a snapshot recovery (we run our JSS in VMware
vSphere) -- and has that worked well for y...
We're running a 9.65 JSS and do light imaging -- we just put the base
installer on the computer and then load the packages on triggered by the
enrollment event once it's there. Our process seems to work flawlessly
with El Capitan even though we are n...
Has anyone figured out a way to suppress Maps, iBooks and Photos in El
Capitan yet? In previous releases Apple has copied/moved the
com.apple.dockfixup.plist, unless it is being done some other way. I use
dockutil to create a custom dock and throw it...
Our imaging model is to use DEP to throw packages on top of the base OS
the computer comes with from Apple, or, failing that, to Netboot and
throw the base OS image onto the computer, then on first boot when it
Enrolls, have all the packages get inst...
Here's my solution (if you could call it that) as a login script. Please
excuse the hacky OS version handling, bash doesn't do floating point and
I didn't want to figure out the crazy way you're actually supposed to
deal with that. We put dockutil on...
I myself have been noticing _mbsetupuser and it's commandeering some of
the login scripts we run before the initial user's identity changes. I
have a feeling the introduction of _mbsetupuser has caused Our DEP
process requires a reboot in El Capitan ...
Just to add to the previous comment I made about feeling like I am
writing a virus just to change the dock -- Apple has apparently added
the com.apple.dockfixup.plist to SIP protection, so at this point it's
kind of like you are.
For once I have something useful to contribute to jamfnation: For the
"sudo: sorry, you must have a tty to run sudo" all over the web
interface for the JAMF Netboot Server, the fix is to comment out the
"requiretty" line in the /etc/sudoers file. I'm...
A ha! We have two methods to get our image on machines. One is via the
netboot environment, if we have a computer that should be reimaged. The
other is the out-of-the-box DEP one. Based on what you have said I
suspect the DEP method, which I haven't ...
