Faced with deploying a Macintosh network of dozens, hundreds, or even thousands of computers? Imaging your systems can help. Imaging saves you time and gives your users a consistent experience at every workstation. Sean Colins has been performing system admin tasks like imaging for nearly twenty years. Here, he shares his techniques for creating a master image you can deploy throughout your organization. These include restoring a Mac to a standard configuration, with or without a network; one-to-one deployments; building a portable hard drive that will help you troubleshoot issues on the go; rebooting troubled systems over the network; and adopting a modular workflow that will save you time building masters.
Hi, I'm Sean Collins. Welcome to Imaging and Deploying Macintosh Computers. You may be watching this course because you need to know how to create a consistent user experience across your organization's computers. And you heard that imaging is the way to go. Well, you heard right. Creating a master image to the play across all of your computers will make that dream a reality. And I'm here to show you how it's done. What you'll need to know to prepare yourself to do the work. And many tips and trips I've picked up over 20 years of system administrations experience.
In this course you will learn how to deploy dozens, 100's, or 1000's of computers for your organization. When you're done you'll be able to restore Macintosh computers to a standard configuration with or without a network. By learning these skills you can provide one to one computer deployments to students at a school or employees in a business. I'll teach you how to build your own bootable hard drive to carry with you to solve technical problems. And we'll even talk about how you can use that knowledge to do the same thing by booting troubled computers over your network. You will learn how to create master systems, image them, and deploy them to computers from a local hard drive or over the network.
And I'll even show you how to use a modular workflow that could save you master system building time in the long run. I'm excited to pass my knowledge onto you. So let's dig right in and get started with Imaging and Deploying Macintosh Computers.
