Find out more about scripts on the scripts page.

enableARD.sh -- Enable ARD and Configure Remote Management Settings

This script enables and configures remote management settings for a user. There are a number of options that the script is capable of configuring, which should be specified in the privs string. Please see the kickstart man page for more information. The following options are available in the kickstart application: -DeleteFiles -ControlObserve -TextMessages -ShowObserve -OpenQuitApps -GenerateReports -RestartShutDown -SendFiles -ChangeSettings -ObserveOnly -mask ARD access is granted and priviliges are assigned to an individual account on computers running Mac OS X 10.3 and later. It can be used with a hardcoded value in the script, or read in as a parameter. Since the Casper Suite defines the first three parameters as (1) Mount Point, (2) Computer Name and (3) username, we are using the forth parameter ($4) as the passable parameter. We do not use $3 since it may not match up to the username that we want to grant access for.
