The admin's freeware friend: DeployStudio - 0 views

  •  
    For individual Mac users or small businesses, it's usually not a problem deploying new Macs with a standard image -- as a Mac support specialist, you might just load each machine manually. But imagine if you need to deploy hundreds or thousands of Macs, PCs, or XServes. You'd need a small army of techs or a way to do the job automatically.

    That's where DeployStudio comes in handy. This freeware tool can be used to create deployment files using Netboot, external USB or FireWire drives, or any AFP, SMB, or NFS sharepoint on the network.

airport - the Little Known Command Line Wireless Utility - OS X Daily - 0 views

  •  
    Strangely hidden from the casual user is a spiffy command line utility that allows you to view, configure, and troubleshoot your Mac's wireless connection. It doesn't appear to be well documented, and judging by the obscure location of the command, Apple probably didn't think it would be too useful for the average Mac user. But the hidden command line airport tool is very useful indeed, so here is how to access it, and how you can use it too.

    The first thing you'll want to do is create a symbolic link to the airport command, because it is situated in a very inconvenient location for quick usage.

dockutil 1.0 released « Pattern Buffer - 0 views

  •  
    As a Mac sysadmin, I've had the need to manipulate the dock on hundreds of systems at a time.

    I used to cobble together terrible shell scripts to do the job, but now thanks to plistlib and python, plist manipulation is really easy. I am releasing this utility free under the Apache 2.0 license. Hopefully some other sysadmins will find it useful.

    dockutil is a command line utility for managing Mac OS X dock items.

    It can add, replace, list, move, find, and delete dock items. It supports Applications, Folders, Stacks, and URLs. It can act on a specific dock plist or every dock plist in a folder of home directories.

    It is compatible with Mac OS X Tiger and Leopard.

CreativeTechs Tips: Set default applications in Mac OS X. - 0 views

  •  
    RCDefaultApp is a free utility that CreativeTechs has started adding to our recommended Mac OS X installs. It adds a special preference pane that allows you to quickly change the default application for many common situations:
    * Open all your .pdf files in Acrobat instead of Preview.
    * Pick a different default mail client or web browser.
    * Control what opens when digital cameras or webcams are plugged in.
    * Close security holes with how certain weblinks are handled.

    Of course you can change these settings other ways. But RCDefaultApp makes it much easier by putting the most requested controls into one location - a new "Default Apps" option at the bottom of your Mac OS X System Preferences.
