In part 3 of the LANDESK Mac Management series, we’ll discuss how to create a LANDESK Software Distribution package, set the appropriate package settings and discuss how it can be published to LANDESK Workspaces or silently install it.
Today’s video demonstration illustrates how you can build a configuration profile, leveraging Apple’s Profile Manager.
Apple’s Profile Manager allows you, as an administrator, to control the behavior of an OS X machine. You can push certificates, supply email and Wi-Fi settings, bind the machine to a domain, secure the data on the device by restricting settings such as iCloud backups and more, much more. For additional details about what Profile Manager can do, see Apple’s documentation here.
Once you have your desired settings configured in profile manager, the video will show you how to import the output file into LANDESK Management Suite and deploy it out via a Change Agent Settings task.
I’ve decided to record a number of videos in a little mini-series of how to do Mac Management using LANDESK Management Suite and Security Suite 2016. Today’s release discusses how you can build a LANDESK Mac agent. The video also covers how to configure a client so you can push the agent to the device. Lastly, the video addresses how to manually install the agent in case you don’t have SSH or Remote Login access.
