If you have upgraded from the Casper Suite v8.x and you want to utilize the cloud distribution point, a Jamf Distribution Server (JDS) instance, or the script editor in the JSS, you must first migrate all the scripts and packages on your master distribution point. This migrates all scripts to the jamfsoftware database, and compresses all non-flat PKGs as ZIP files.
Casper Admin cannot migrate files that include any of the following unsupported characters in their filenames:
/ : ? < > \ * | ” [ ] @ ! % ^ #
After the migration, newly added scripts are stored in the jamfsoftware database, and any newly added non-flat PKGs are compressed.
There are also a few new limitations after the migration:
To migrate packages and scripts, open Casper Admin and click Migrate in the toolbar.
The time it takes to migrate depends on the amount of data being migrated. After the migration is complete, it is recommended that you replicate files to your non-master distribution points.
