Jamf Software Server

The following issues are known in the JSS:

  • Computers with macOS 10.13 using the Apple File System (APFS) and encrypted with FileVault, when FileVault Escrow is enabled, incorrectly report a null user in the JSS.

  • Deploying several in-house apps simultaneously to a large environment may cause significant delays in app deployment time. If you have questions or need more information, contact your Jamf account representative.

  • Entering incorrect credentials on the JSS login page redirects to /logout.html which causes the next login attempt to fail unless the URL is changed manually.

  • To install applications on Apple TV devices, tvOS 10.2 or later is required. Although earlier versions do not support app installation, the Apps tab displays in the JSS for all mobile device records.

  • When Apple TV devices are in Single App Mode, users cannot install apps.

  • [PI-003356] The JSS may incorrectly display placeholder text in Settings.
    Workaround: Clear your web browser cache.

Casper Focus

Due to the issues known in Casper Focus, Jamf does not recommend using Casper Focus with iOS 9.3.2 or later or the Casper Suite v9.96 or later. For the best iOS classroom management experience, Jamf recommends using Apple Classroom.

The following issues are known in Casper Focus:

  • [D-008567] When a student device with iOS 8 is focused on a website, multiple icons with the website link are displayed.

  • [D-009443] Casper Focus fails to focus a student device with iOS 7 on the attention screen if the device was being focused on an app or website.

  • [PI-002319] Changing the focus from one app to another fails on student devices with iOS 9.3.2 to later. The following error message is displayed as a result: ”Focus failed: the device may not be connected to a network." As a workaround, remove the focus from the student devices. Then, after a message displays indicating that the focus was removed, focus the devices on the desired app.

  • [PI-002359] Focus commands fail on student devices with iOS 10 until the devices are reset.

  • [PI-002858] Changing the focus from an app to a website fails on student devices with iOS 9 or 10.

  • [PI-004106] Focusing student devices on an app or the attention screen fails.

  • [PI-004107] Focusing student devices with iOS 11 on iBooks or Safari fails.

Casper Admin

The following issue is known in Casper Admin:

Due to changes in the way Casper Admin manages macOS installers for macOS 10.12.4 or later, the InstallESD.dmg file is no longer automatically extracted from the macOS Installer.app file.

Workaround: For macOS 10.12.4, 10.12.5, and 10.12.6, manually extract the InstallESD.dmg from the Installer.app update file and upload it to Casper Admin. On the General tab, select the Item is a DMG with an OS X Installer, or Adobe Updater/Installer for CS3 or CS4 checkbox, and click OK. The use of macOS installers for imaging is deprecated in macOS 10.13.

Casper Imaging

The following issues are known in Casper Imaging:

  • Casper Imaging does not populate information saved in a PreStage imaging configuration if using the List of Names method for naming computers.

  • [PI-004382] Computers with APFS-formatted drives cannot be imaged. At this time, only HFS+ formatted drives can be imaged.
