    Why and how to use Erase Install to upgrade your Mac Fleet

    Why and how to use Erase Install to upgrade your Mac Fleet

    Apple recommends using MDM commands to upgrade and update your fleet. But what can we do when MDM isn't working across all our fleet? Graham R. Pugh, Senior Systems Engineer, MSP Services at Jamf will discuss erase-install, a tool originally developed for erasing and reinstalling macOS that has since become more widely used for performing updates and upgrades without the need for admin rights, while making prerequisite checks and providing user feedback during the update process.

    Escrow Buddy: A tool for escrowing missing FileVault recovery keys

    Learn how Escrow Buddy can help you ensure your MDM has valid FileVault personal recovery keys for all your organization's Macs.
     
    ---------------------------------
     
    Escrow Buddy is a brand-new open-source tool for Mac IT and security administrators who escrow FileVault personal recovery keys to their MDM. For Macs that do not have a valid recovery key in escrow, Escrow Buddy securely and transparently generates a new key during the standard macOS login process and triggers its escrow. In this session, Elliot Jordan will cover the reasons FileVault recovery keys might be missing from your MDM, share context on the pitfalls of existing password-prompt workflows aimed at solving the problem, and explain why Escrow Buddy offers a more evolved and scalable solution for modern Mac admins.

Rocketman team is a wealth of knowledge

Really enjoy the information shared in this podcast amongst the different speakers.

Bruce Carter ,

Amazing amount of admin tips and materials freely shared

LaunchPad is a monthly, approximately hour long get-together for Apple device administrators, particularly those using Jamf products to manage their fleets. I’ve been attending the live Zoom meetings for quite a while now, and I am happy to see it expanding into the podcast world. LaunchPad is hosted and presented by Rocketman Tech, which is a Managed Service Provider known in the Mac Admin community for their high levels of knowledge, experience, and sharing material freely with others. I quite literally can’t estimate the value of what they have created and curated, but I am sure it has saved me hundreds of hours of work, and easily thousands of dollars. The Rocketman Tech team is very collegial and congenial, and the meetups are always informative and entertaining. I highly recommend the podcast archive, but I also greatly encourage anyone with interest in Apple device administration to attend the live presentations as the interactions and Q
