I went back to school today to try and get ready for the beginning of term. As always, there’s lots of jobs that come up along the way, but here are a few things I managed to accomplish today:
- Apply for some ‘up-to-date’ Mountain Lion licences for some Mac Minis that we bought after Mountain Lion was finally announced. I had to go into school to get some serial numbers and to get invoices from our reseller, but it was pretty straightforward. Today’s the last day that you can apply so I was cutting it a bit fine.
- Set up a repository for Munki on our Mac Mini server. We’ve been using Munki with much success just as a way to automatically install Apple’s software updates when the computer is logged out. It’s pretty handy! However, I’ve been wanting to use it update other software (such as Microsoft Office and Adobe Flash Player), rather than having to push out packages using Apple Remote Desktop. I followed a really clear guide on the Munki website, which took a bit of time to get my head around but seems to have worked fine.
