On the last day of JNUC2014, I gave my first public talk. The session was dedicated to AutoCasperNBI and the Casper NetInstall Creator.

You can find a video of the talk here, with the other sessions videos from JNUC2014 being available here.

Many thanks to those whom attended, I think the session went well. Lots of humour (some unintended), & some great collaboration. Especially in the Q&A.

Also, a special mention to those whom beta-tested AutoCasperNBI & my JAMF buddies Dan & Nick (mostly for putting up with me).

Below are some links to the content that was covered, as well as some links from the Q&A.

At the end of the session, there was a great Q&A session.. The main discussion was on dealing with FileVault2 encrypted volumes. Here’s Rich Troutons post on how to erase them, (I would post Andrew Barrett’s solution, but not sure of his blogs link :P)

Loree & GaToRAiD over at JAMFNation also posted his version, which can be found here.
