I have an iMac lab, all the machines of which were purchased through
DEP. They were prepped before we had Jamf, and we're now getting around
to wiping them and taking advantage of PreStage Enrollment. I used
startosinstall and --eraseinstall to wipe ...
Because of Adobe's new Shared Device License for CC, I am working on
deploying a message in our computer labs that informs users that they
must have an active Adobe ID to use CC apps and that free Adobe IDs can

Does anyone know off-hand if it is possible to deploy free iBooks to
macOS without prompting the user for their Apple ID? This particular Mac
lab is a shared user environment, so we'd like to avoid Apple IDs being

I had scoped a Config Profile (Login Window payload; change to name and

the thread. The command itself was input correctly. Again, the issue is
not that the command didn't work. Quite the contrary—it was easy and
worked as expected. The only hurdle ...
@mconners Good question. Unfortunately, I've manually re-erased and
restored all of them, and I neglected to check the file system on any of
them before doing so. The file system was whatever startosinstall
installed by default. I believe before the ...
@cdenesha I appreciate the info. If a user uses his/her personal Apple
ID in the Books app in a computer lab of shared-user iMacs, will the
iMac become associated with that user in a problematic way (i.e., their
Apple ID being associated with other a...
