Building an SOE/MOE

Adam Reed, Australian National UniversityPart of XW13

This hands on session will cover numerous aspects of building and maintaining a SOE/MOE, including:

  • understanding OS X,
  • software packaging,
  • basic scripting, and
  • the command line

You will see and use various tools that make managing a SOE easier, and you will gain some practical ideas that you can utilise in your environment. This is a repeat of a session offered at X World 2012.

You will need to bring your own Macintosh laptop to participate in this lab, preferably running MacOS X 10.8.x.

Adam is the team leader of the Managed Operating Environments team from Information Technology Services at ANU. His team builds MOEs for student and staff machines on both OS X and Windows.

Within the team, Adam is the senior Macintosh admin, and has extensive experience in the design, construction, and management of Macintosh MOE’s. Recently his team has implemented a new Munki managed environment that is used by different service provider groups from across the campus in a shared services style manner.
