A server with an AFP or SMB share can be used as a file share distribution point. Before you can use a file share distribution point with Jamf Pro, you must set up the distribution point and add it to Jamf Pro.
Note: A server with an AFP share cannot share files on the Apple File System (APFS), which is the default file system for computers with macOS 10.13 or later. Computers with macOS 10.13 or later that are HFS+ formatted can still support AFP. If you need a file share distribution point for APFS formatted computers, SMB is an option.
When you add a file share distribution point to Jamf Pro, you can do the following:
Make it the principal distribution point.
Choose a failover distribution point.
Note: Failover distribution points can be configured for policies, but not for patch policies.
Configure HTTP downloads.
