Parallels Mac Management adds the following Mac management features to Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager: Feature Description Active Directory and Network discovery of Mac computers Active Directory and Network discovery methods allows you to discover Mac computers on a network and enroll them in Configuration Manager.

To run the uninstaller, go to Control Panel > Programs > Uninstall a program and uninstall the Parallels Mac Management for Microsoft SCCM program.
NOTE: If Parallels Mac Management components are installed on different servers, you need to uninstall each component individually. When done, install the new version of Parallels Mac Management for Microsoft SCCM. Please note that after upgrading Parallels Mac Management you need to recreate NetBoot and NetRestore images and upgrade the Parallels Mac Client on each managed Mac.

This blog post is being reprinted with permission from the original author,. We are extremely excited and pleased to get to share his post as a special guest blog this week. Read on for Ian’s how-to for configuring a Mac image in Microsoft SCCM and, and let us know if you are experiencing an increase in Macs in your network and the steps you’re taking to keep them centrally managed. I touched briefly on using to build Macs in my but I thought it might be a good idea to go through the entire process that I use when I have to create an image for a Mac, getting the image deployed and getting the Mac configured once the image is on there.
At the moment, it’s not a simple process. It requires the use of several tools and, if you want the process to be completely automated, some Bash scripting as well.
The process isn’t as smooth as you would get from solutions like DeployStudio but it works and, in my opinion anyway, it works well enough for you not to have to bother with a separate product for OSD. The Parallels team is working hard on this part of the product and they tell me that proper task sequencing will be part of V4 of the agent. As much as I’m looking forward to that, it doesn’t change the fact that right now we’re on V3.5 and we have to use the messy process. First of all, I should say that this is my method of doing it and mine alone.
This is not Parallels’ method of doing this, it has not been sanctioned or condoned by them. How to video call on skype for mac. There are some dangerous elements to it, and you follow this procedure at your own risk and I will not be held responsible for damage caused by it if you try this out. Requirements You will need the following tools: • A Mac running OS X Server. The server needs to be set up as a Profile Manager server, an Open Directory server and, optionally, as a Netboot server. It is also needed on Yosemite for the System Image Utility.
• A second Mac running the client version of OS X. • Both the server and the client need to be running the same version of OS X (Mavericks, Yosemite, whatever) and they need to be patched to the same level. Both Macs need to have either FireWire or Thunderbolt ports. • A FireWire or Thunderbolt cable to connect the two Macs together. • A SCCM infrastructure with the Parallels Mac Management SCCM Proxy and Netboot server installed. • This is optional but I recommend it anyway: a copy of Xcode or another code editor to create your shell scripts in. I know you could just use TextEdit but I prefer something that has proper syntax highlighting and Xcode is at least free.
Lots of patience. You’ll need it. The process is time consuming and and can be infuriating when you get something wrong. At the end of this process, you will have an OS X Image which can be deployed to your Macs. The image will automatically name its target, it will download, install and configure the Parallels Mac Management for Microsoft SCCM agent, join itself to your Active Directory domain, attach itself to a managed wireless network and it will install any additional software that’s not in your base image.
