Remote Enrollment Using Recon

If you know the IP address of the Mac computer you want to enroll and SSH (Remote Login) is enabled on the computer, you can enroll the computer by running Recon remotely. This allows you to submit detailed inventory information for the computer. It also allows you to add computers to a site during enrollment.

Requirements

To enroll a computer by running Recon remotely, you need:

  • The IP address of the computer

  • SSH (Remote Login) enabled on the computer

  5. (Optional) Select User and Location and specify user and location information for the computer.
    If an LDAP server is set up in the JSS, click Search images/download/thumbnails/16420016/R_Search.png to populate information from the LDAP server. This assigns the user to the computer during enrollment. (For more information on setting up an LDAP server, see Integrating with LDAP Directory Services.)
    If you specified a username that matches an existing username in the JSS, the user is assigned to the computer during enrollment. If you specified a username that does not match an existing username in the JSS, the user is created and assigned to the computer during enrollment.
