Hosted by school district. Before had ~500 machines.
Now have 1 Mac Mini at each site as replacements to Xserves. Must have missed where they talk about the actual deployment.

Technologies for Deployment

  • Deploystudio dmg
  • Munki Pkgs
  • Puppet for configurations
  • Still using images for new machines
    • Should be using DEP VPP and MDM
  • Deploystudio creates seperate partition for /Users. This allows re-imaging without touching users data, should also prevent unable to boot because low disk space.
