Project MAC Server

03/28/2017 774 views
Hi all
Im working at MAXON Computer, and i have a Project. Its a MAC Server to user for NetInstall, Softwareupdates and so on.
Now im stuck and need some help.

1. is it possible to create an OS Image with Standard Username and Password.
2. how can i let an script let the MAC join an Active Directory, setting an Proxy Server, and setting a ComputerName with a Präfix "MXDEOSX" i will then give the ID "eg 566" manualy.
3. is it possible that ne MAC´s automaticly will be listed in the Profile Manager?

Sorry for the bad English

  • Ok so far i fixed point 1. A fresh OS Install via NetInstall has now an Admin Account with an standard Password.

    Point 2 Still not figured out how it can be done. I try the Profile Manager but with that config no AD Join, No Proxy Settings.
    The biggest Problem is stting up the Computer/HostName for a client PC it would be nice when the Prefix "MXDEOSX" is set automaticly and i only have to enter an ID that the Name will be "MXDEOSX123"
    Point3. seems that an auto join to the Profile Manager is not possible? I only can log in to the website an download the reg config from the Profil Manager.

    Would be realy nice if someone can help me with that problem.
