Deploying JMP Pro 12.x and 13.x licenses

As I’m reorganizing my GitHub repositories, I’ve realized that I forgot to post about my work with Shea Craig and the JMP Team at SAS. Because of them, I was able to deploy JMP Pro 12.x and 13.x licenses to our Mac labs.

You can find code and instructions at my jmp_pro_12_license_pkg and jmp_pro_13_license_pkg GitHub repositories.

NoMAD Group Condition for Munki

One of the most powerful features of Munki are conditional items – and the ability for an admin to provide custom conditions for deploying or removing software. For example, we’ve been using the scripts that Hannes Juutilainen has published to determine which macOS version is supported by a particular Mac’s hardware.  We can then offer the most appropriate OS upgrade to each Mac.

We recently deployed the excellent NoMAD to single-user Macs, with the intention of resolving keychain issues (and eventually moving away from Active Directory binding altogether). If you’re using AD with your Macs, it’s absolutely worth checking out.

When a user logs into NoMAD, some data about the user’s AD account is retrieved for later usage – such as their group membership (also known as Organizational Units, or OUs). In our environment, users are divided into different groups based on their department. What if we could use that for deploying printers, similar to Group Policy on Windows?

You might see where I’m going with this – check out the script on GitHub for requirements and usage instructions.

Deploying Gaussian

I thought I blogged about deploying Gaussian 09 when I published this GitHub repository, but I guess I forgot to do that.  Anyhow, here’s some code for deploying Gaussian 16, the latest version of the Gaussian software.
