Issue accessing certain websites after installing the iOS 16.5.1 (a), iPadOS 16.5.1 (a), and macOS 13.4.1 (a) Rapid Security Responses


Yesterday, Apple released Rapid Security Responses (RSR’s) for iOS 16.5.1, iPadOS 16.5.1, and macOS 13.4.1.

However, not long after it’s released people started to see issues accessing certain websites via Safari.

In response to this, Apple posted the above shown KB. This KB advises Rapid Security Responses iOS 16.5.1 (b), iPadOS 16.5.1 (b), and macOS 13.4.1 (b) will be available soon to address this issue, and how to remove the RSR’s.

See below for some more details on the issue affecting the iOS 16.5.1, iPadOS 16.5.1, and macOS 13.4.1 RSR’s, how to remove and detect.

Notifications showing a prohibitory symbol after upgrading to macOS Monterey


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) or alternatively to restart the Notification Center via:

/usr/bin/killall NotificationCenter

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.

AutoPkg, curl & exit status 60


Over the past weekend in #autopkg Slack channel in the MacAdmins Slack, some fellow admins saw their recipes erroring with a non-zero exit status of 60.

At dataJAR we only run our AutoPkg recipes weekdays, but sure enough we hit the same issue come Monday.

Below is some more details, as well as a proposed fix for at least the short term.

Jamf Enrollment Customization – kCFErrorDomainCFNetwork:303


At dataJAR, I recently worked with a customer which wanted to make use of Jamf Pro’s Enrollment Customization option.

However, with everything setup, we were presented with the message “Error <kCFErrorDomainCFNetwork:303>” whenever trying to load any of the defined PreStage Panes.

I reached out to Jamf Support, but they hadn’t see this issue & searching the macadmins Slack didn’t bring up anything either.

Long story short (& in an attempt to not create my own DenverCoder9 moment), we discovered the issue to be down to the environments ingress controller being configured with HTTP/2 support by default.

As soon as we disabled HTTP/2, everything worked as expected.

Hope this helps someone else too.

Java 8 Update 181 LDAP Changes & Jamf Pro Connectivity


Recently we updated all our instances to Jamf 10.7.1, for Mojave support.

All went well. Except for a couple of instances where their Jamf Infrastructure Manager was being used as an LDAP Proxy.

Well, turns out this was a change to Java 8 Update 181, which we updated to at the same time. And, that this is an issue not just with Jamf Infrastructure Manager, but could be with LDAPS in general.

Below details these changes, & overcoming this issue.

The Great (caching) Purge


Earlier tonight, myself & a few others on the #osx-server channel in the Slack started to receive alerts from our macOS Servers running a Caching Service.

Sadly, it was not just the harmless “Caching service unavailable” alerts that you see at times.
