Munki Catalog Browser is the last project that we released during our JNUC 2019 talk & is an app which allows a local macOS admin to easily list items in your devices Munki catalogs as well as exporting to CSV.
However, that repo has a large explanatory gap.
As such, if containerising Jamf Pro is something that is of interest, I’d recommend Jamf’s own Kubernetes Manifests repo.
Ours can be used to cross reference, & we update ours periodically.
This blog post is concerned with one of those repos, which is titled: JAMFSoftwareServer.log Messages.
The repo can be accessed via the hyperlink above.
This repo contains a list of messages which can appear in the JAMFSoftwareServer.log, with a note as to what action might be required due to the messages being generated.
For more details see below, else click the link & PR’s are welcomed to expand the repo.
The talk was on some of the methodologies dataJAR employs to fully manage 100+ Jamf Pro instances as a distributed team whilst maintaining a high standard throughout.
During the talk we released a few GitHub repos with items that we use day-to-day to help our fellow admins. These will be covered in further detail over the few weeks.
A link to the talks video can be found below, alongside the talks main GitHub repo.
I was inducted into the Hall Of Fame, alongside some fellow admins. Below is some history on why Jamf Nation holds a special place for me.
It has been 5 years since AutoCasperNBI was released, with AutoImagrNBI coming soon afterwards.
However, 5 years is a long time in the world of Apple. And as such, much has changed when it comes to deploying macOS.
NetBoot & Imaging are no longer viable methods for modern macOS deployment, especially when we look at booting off of a network volume to block copy an OS.
As such, today I am ceasing development on both projects & setting their respective GitHub repos as read-only.
In a future episode of the Mac Admins Podcast I go into more detail about the history of how these apps came to be, & I’ll be at JNUC2019 next week raising a glass to both apps.
At the recent London Apple Admins, I mentioned that with macOS Catalina setting a custom Software Update catalog URL is now noted as deprecated.
This took some folks by surprise, despite setting a custom Software Update catalog URL.
Below is more details on this deprecation.
