Hopefully, all 229 posts from the past eleven years and two months have all been sorted.
All the code examples have been moved to gists from repos, and they will now show inline natively.
There was also still some http:// items from way back when this blog was just http://, which have been moved to https.
And, there was some images missing.. for $reasons.
I’ve also rejigged some backend stuff and removed some older plugins.
So, a fair bit or maintenance over the past 11 days. Let me know if any issues encountered.
Lastly, once more, thanks to @SudarMuthu for the WP Github Gist plugin which served this blog so well.
A few folks have noticed that the code examples have disappeared from my posts, well.. I was using a plugin called WP Github Gist to display the code as this blog has been around since before WordPress added native support for Gists.
However, this plugin no longer works.
But, don’t panic!! Things will come back, I just need to manually update the 229 posts here (over 11 years worth), to use Gists.
One of this things I most liked about WP Github Gist and will miss, was the fact that I could link to lines within a file within a GitHub repo and has them displayed. Instead of creating a gist per post (as an example, this file was used across a number of posts).
So, there is some work for me to do.
If you’re looking at a post, and are missing the content, please message me on Slack or Twitter.
No SLA mind, but I’ll look to update the posts requested over the older ones.
And lastly, thanks to @SudarMuthu for the WP Github Gist plugin which served this blog so well.
After upgrading to macOS Monterey, you might see notifications like the above.
If so, the simple solution is to logout and then back in (or restart).
This seems to correct things, without any deeper delving into the issue.
Many thanks for @nstrauss and @Tyler Sparr for mentioning this on the macadmins slack, and raising an issue for Notifier too.
Yesterday, Apple issued updated terms to both Apple Business Manager and Apple School Manager.
Not much has changed here from my prior posts on these and the on the mechanisms at play here and the impact.
The impact of not agreeing these terms are:
In Apple School Manager, Apple Business Manager, and the Device Enrollment Program, you can’t assign new devices to your MDM server, even if you have selected the option to automatically assign new purchases to a specific MDM server.https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT203063
So, get and AxM admin reading and approving!
And, if you’re new to these changes or want a recap please see this post.
During your testing of macOS Monterey (betas or today after it’s release), you might receive a prompt like that shown above.
Well, does this mean that the “JamfManagementService” needs an update? Nope! and, to be clear, this is something you’ll likely see even if you don’t use Jamf.
Below is some information on this message, what triggers it, and how to start to uncover what on your macOS devices are triggering it.
Yesterday, we released Jamf Switcher, bringing the app to 1.3.1.
This release is needed if you’re running Jamf Pro 10.33+. Due to the Self Service Bookmark XML in Jamf 10.33.0 changing the element
<attribute name="jssdescription" type="string">JSS</attribute> to:
<attribute name="serverdescription" type="string">JSS</attribute>.
Without this change, no data is shown.
Jamf Switcher will now check for either XML element, meaning this release will work for 10.33+ and prior.
If you deploy Adobe Creative Cloud, and you’re not leaving folks to solely update via the Creative Cloud Desktop App, you might want to be notified on new updates.
Well, Adobe does have a way to notify you via email. But it’s a little hidden, and doesn’t cover all Adobe Creative Cloud products.
See below for how to subscribe to these email updates.
We’ve just released a little update to Jamf Switcher, bringing the app to 1.3.
This release is needed if you’re running Jamf Pro 10.30+. As the location and the format of Self Service bookmarks changed with this release from being XML files located within “/Library/Application Support/JAMF/Self Service/Managed Plug-ins/” to a single file located at: “~/Library/Application Support/com.jamfsoftware.selfservice.mac/CocoaAppCD.storedata”
Jamf Switcher will automatically switch over to this new file when present.
Last week, I had the pleasure of presenting at my first MacDevOpsYVR.
A link to the video, slide deck, GitHub repo and links to the other videos etc from MacDevOpsYVR can be found below.
Many thanks to the MacDevOpsYVR team for the great event, and yes 125 slides in 15 minutes 🙂
