Using odutil with opendirectoryd

The options for Open Directory continue to get more refined, aligning with opendirectoryd. The odutil command is becoming more and more useful with each version of OS X. Let’s inspect the directory service cache, using odutil with the show verb and the cache option:
odutil show cache
You can also view statistics for opendirectoryd using that show verb but with the statistics option:
odutil show statistics
And to see everything, use odutil with the show verb and the all option to get plenty of data to grep through:
odutil show all
The final show option we’ll look at is configuration. Here, you will also need to feed a directory nodename into the command:
odutil show configuration /Search
Now, /Search is a node but there are a lot. You can use show with nodes to see a listing of all the nodes:
odutil show nodes
You can then see which pids have references to opendirectoryd as well as the nodenames, reference IDs, and session... | Read more »

Sell Some Bushel

So one of the projects I’m very involved in is a simple, new Apple Device Management (or MDM really) solution, called Bushel. By default, we give people 3 devices for free. If you’re in a position to refer people to Bushel, you can also use links that you send to people that will get you even more free devices (up to 10).
But some people want to sell things and earn commissions from them. And we fully support that. So you can become a Bushel affiliate and earn commissions from any referrals you send us.

To sign up to become a Bushel affiliate at http://www.bushel.com/affiliates. There, you can find links to refer customers/friends, marketing assets if you want to use our logos and see commissions that you’re earning. So… Join... | Read more »

Edit NetBoot Sets Without Creating New Images

Mac admins spend a lot of time building images. In System Image Utility this can mean baking an image that just looks for a path of a NetRestore source and restores an operating system. Constantly making these is a pretty duplicative task. The goal of this article is to take a generic NetRestore NetBoot image and augment it in such a way that you don’t need to create new NetBoot images unless there’s a new build train. Instead, all you need to do is edit a file that changes the path (uri) of your image so that it can be restored. Using this, you can just stop the NetInstall service in OS X Server, edit a file, start the service back up and boot clients into the NetBoot environment.

When you make a NetBoot Set, you’ll select a source. This can be a local volume or a network volume. Once your NetBoot nbi is created, you’ll see a NetInstall.dmg. If... | Read more »
