Enter Jamf Switcher, the app to bring the word faff to the Jamf Marketplace!
For details on how this came to be, see below.
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.
See below on how to block this upgrade with Jamf Pro.
Last night, Jamf released Jamf Pro 10.13.1 & 10.15.1. These were released due to PI-007507.
This PI is noted as a “critical security vulnerability” which “does not pose a risk to private data or managed devices. It does have the potential to impact the integrity and availability of your web server” but “impacts versions of Jamf Pro 9.4 and later”
