I just released a project that I've been working on for a while, and
mentioned during my JNUC API talk, that utilizes the JSS API to
automatically merge changes that are made to git repositories.
Effectively version controlling aspects of the JSS. I ...
I have two JDS servers, no other distribution points. For some reason,
no matter which "Default JDS Instance" is specified for the network
segment that the computer is on, Casper Imaging will default to the
first JDS, which is the master. I have trie...
Does anyone have any experience managing/modifying the 'Local
Items'/'iCloud' keychains via the command line? I currently have a shell
script, offered via Self Service, which utilizes 'security' CLI which
looks at the login.keychain, finds items that...
I love the new JSS REST API and the ability to interact/modify nearly
everything via a script. However, there appears to be one glaring

find anyway to get information about them ...
Do you have a user logged in when you trigger this policy via ARD,

CrashPlan setup, we need a user logged in at time of install even if
installing silently. Because of this, we tr...
I ran into a similar issue a little while back. I think the problem lies
in the fact that the /usr/local/bin directory does not exist on a fresh
image of 10.11. The QuickAdd.pkg will create this directory if required
but, I suspect, the Recon.app jus...
NetBoot/PXE Boot requests, from a networking standpoint, look like DHCP
requests (however, you can calm your panicked networking engineer down
by saying that it'll be fine and your servers won't respond to general
DHCP requests). So quick googling fo...
We have a method that we use to do this as an initial provisioning task.
It's kludgy, but it works as long as you have a valid individual
recovery key and know the user's password that you want to enable (which
can be changed later). You can use the ...
Just a note on using this script. While it is helpful, it does allow
anyone with read access to computer objects to view the "Helpdesk"
password in cleartext which, if it allows someone to decrypt a machine,
can be used to potentially compromise the ...
