Installing Casper on OS X 10.6 Server

So, we’ve got our server set up, and we have our copy of Casper. We’ve configured our firewall correctly and have a push cert, so we’re pretty much good to go.

One of the nicer aspects of Casper is that you don’t have to install and configure it from the server itself. Casper uses SSH for the installation and configuration steps. So, if you don’t have easy physical access to the server and don’t want to do everything via Apple Remote Desktop or VNC, you don’t have to.

1. Mount the Casper disk image, and after reading the documentation (because you always read the documentation before you start, right?), start the JAMF Software Server (JSS).

2. Give it the DNS name/IP address of the server you’re installing Casper on, along with a username and password that have both SSH and administrator privileges. The JSS setup will think a minute, and then offer you two options: “Install the JSS with a Distribution Point” and “Install the JSS without a Distribution Point” (Figure 15.2).
