  20. Your logo here 275 x 100 max To update, double-click

    to edit master © JAMF Software, LLC Tips for building VMs for testing • Quick testing of enrollment, MDM, DEP, new installers, policy workflows • Physical Macs can be tedious to reset,
 burdensome to reconfigure, expensive
 to keep around only for testing Why use VMs?
  21. Your logo here 275 x 100 max To update, double-click

    to edit master © JAMF Software, LLC Considerations • AutoDMG can only build a disk image that matches the host Mac’s OS (e.g., build 10.14 on 10.14 Mac) • AutoDMG requires the installer to be on
 an external disk to build
 (installinstallmacos.py takes care of this) • Clones are a game-changer for testing
  34. Your logo here 275 x 100 max To update, double-click

    to edit master © JAMF Software, LLC Uses for MDM/DEP VMs • Enrollment testing • Workflow documentation • Vanilla environment, great for screenshots,
 recordings, etc. • App compatibility with new OS versions • New/updated workflow/policy testing
