Best method for deploying GarageBand with content to a lab environment via VPP

Contributor II

Hello Jamfnation,
I am currently working on how to deploy garageband and all of its 20GB+ content to our labs. We will be using VPP to deploy the gragaeband app itself but I am curious as to how any of you are doing this currently. I did find this blog post from last year Deploy GarageBand and it’s loops for Mac Labs on Jamf PRO but I want to know if there is a better way to do this. As always thanks for your help!

IMHO, still one of the best ways to get all of the needed content, before the user sits down at the computer. I download then packages to my test machine. I used composer to create one huge package that gets cached on the client, then I run the script to install the packages, then the huge package gets deleted from the machine.

I used this process on my lab image during the days of deploystudio and munki. I still keep the packages available to push out to my labs now using a policy. Hopefully it all still works and eliminates the need of deploying a 12-20GB package.
