At JNUC2016, I presented alongside my colleague James Ridsdale. The talk gave a history of Apple management, from Managed Preferences to Configuration Profiles. Attempted to deep dive into how Configuration Profiles work, advise on some idiosyncrasies & some workflows available when using an MDM.

Recently, myself & a few folks have been dealing with issues from profiles deployed via the JSS.
Kitzy has a workaround for the issues affecting 9.82 & screen savers asking for passwords, here.
This was seemingly fixed in 9.9, but other issues have since cropped up & I’ve detailed them below.
If you manually download a Configuration Profile from the JSS, you’ll see that the profile largely reads as gobbledegook.
Luckily a couple of bash commands later & you’ll have a readable profile.
Subject’s a mouthful eh? Basically, I needed for my 10.7 Macs to authenticate to our RADIUS wireless network using PEAP authentication & the Mac’s Certficate from our domain.
