Exporting printer settings as an installer, for contractors who's computers will not be enrolled.
Posted: 3/20/17 at 10:43 AM by ryanscherding
My organization uses JAMF for all staff machines, however we have a large number of independent contractors who bring their own devices, and therefore will not be enrolled in our device management. Currently we deploy all printers to staff via the JSS, which is quite easy. We have the printer, drivers, finishing and a default preset deployed via the JSS. We are installing new printers in our region's offices, and these printers take a lot longer to set up due to the extra settings (added paper trays, staplers/booklet) as well as adding our company's standard presets on every machine.
Is there a way to make a quick installer either from what I already have in the jss, or a pkg installer from a snapshot the will install the configuration for the printers as well as the presets? If i make a pkg installer is there a way to have this install into the current user, rather than create a new folder?
