Within our Casper environment all our distribution points are HTTPS. On occasions we’ll get the emails from our JAMF Software Server containing the below:
An error occurred executing the policy “Install 010 dockutil 1.1.4” on the computer “xxx”.Event log from the policy:/usr/sbin/jamf is version 8.73Executing Policy Install 010 dockutil 1.1.4…Downloading https://jss.fqdn:443/CasperShare/Packages//010 dockutil 1.1.4.dmg…Error: Package not successfully downloaded: 60Running Recon…
When we see this error it’s often due to two issues:
- The Macs time has reset to January 1, 1970. This can happen when the battery dies & the mac cannot contact an NTP to update it. (I’ve a few posts on how i’ve dealt with that here, here & here).
- We use our internal certificate authority to sign the SSL certificates that we use on our HTTPS distribution points. As this is a private cert the Macs need it installed as a root certificate before trusting the SSL cert, this is done via a Configuration Profile which sometimes takes a minute or two to be installed after a rebuild.
