bryanzak / SketchUpMake-15.3.plist
Created Apr 17, 2015
Munki pkginfo for SketchUp Make 2015. This package is a bit out of the ordinary as it has to copy a folder of three apps. This pkg info does that using the OEM downloaded disk image and properly handles uninstalling as well.

bryanzak / Office2011-14.4.2.plist
Created Dec 18, 2014
Many people constantly ask on the munki discussion group about Office 2011. The two files in this gist represent Office 2011. The first is the full Office 2011 SP4 OEM installer available directly from Microsoft. The second is the 14.4.7 update from autopkg (slightly modified as the autopkg recipe assumes an older base image not SP4, but that's …

bryanzak / AccountRenamer.command
Created Aug 22, 2014
This is a script we have used for a while to rename an Active Directory user account that is cached locally. When a teacher has a name change, their AD short name changes, but not the user ID. OS X doesn't like this. So this script is run by our field techs from an admin account to simply rename the account from old to new. The teacher can then …

bryanzak / SafariPlugInPrefs.mobileconfig
Created Mar 20, 2014
Creating a profile (and installer package) from a plist. This gist has a number of pieces. From a plist it creates a profile and from the profile it creates an installer package. There are create shell scripts for each step and the installer package also has a postinstall script that installs the profile. In this particular example we're creatin…

A very simple example of how we configure Munki based on some information encoded in the computer name and some input from the building tech doing the configuration. This script is normally sent via ARD

bryanzak / SetStudentDesktop.py
Last active Aug 29, 2015
Mavericks does not respect MCX applied to com.apple.desktop.plist. This script - which can be called via a LaunchAgent for every user that logs in - will read the plist file and extract the desktop image set by MCX. Normally this key is found in Background > default > ImageFilePath but sometimes (perhaps related to not being managed? or Mission …

Script Runner. This is a Launch Agent and script launcher so we can have a folder of scripts that are run anytime a user logs in. This is very barebones and not even remotely fancy, please feel free to share any feedback or suggestions you might have. Updated 2014-03-04 to support logging

ARD Admin 3.7.1 Fixer - a script to cause ARD Admin to effectively "forget" all cached IP and DNS information for known computers. This deals with a problem in ARD Admin 3.7.1 where it seems to be too aggressive in caching this information
