Charles Edge and Bill Smith provide detailed explanations of the technology required for large-scale Mac OS X deployments and show you how to integrate it with other operating systems and applications. Now in its second edition, Enterprise Mac Administrator's Guide addresses the growing size and spread of Mac OS X deployments in corporations and institutions worldwide. In some cases, this is due to the growth of traditional Mac environments, but for the most part it has to do with organizations instituting device choice and switcher campaigns, where Windows and/or Linux environments are migrating to Mac OS X. There is a steep culture shock with many of these migrations. The products that are used are different, the nomenclature is different, and most importantly the best practices for dealing with the operating system and updates are very different. Apple provides a number of tools to help automate and guide IT toward managing a large number of Mac OS X computers—it has since before Mac OS X was initially released. However, if you want to put together all of the pieces to tell a compelling story about how to run an IT department or a deployment of Macs, you need to compile information from a number of different sources. This book provides explanations of the technology required. What You'll Learn Choose a directory services model that works for your organization and integrate it into your existing model Choose an imaging model and begin imaging workstations with or without third-party products Use the Mac App Store and Apple’s Volume Purchasing Program to deploy apps Leverage scripting techniques to reduce labor for the IT department Provide network services (file sharing, mobile home folders, messaging, etc.) to the Mac OS X clients Who This Book Is For System administrators and IT professionals who need to manage a large number of Mac OS X computers, be they Mac OS X–based servers or workstations. The assumption is that readers are somewhat familiar with Mac OS X and/or IT in general, but not that they are familiar with the Apple system internals, server services, or deployment techniques.

Mac OS X was released in March 2001, but many components, such as Mach and BSD, are considerably older. Understanding the design, implementation, and workings of Mac OS X requires examination of several technologies that differ in their age, origins, philosophies, and roles. Mac OS X Internals: A Systems Approach is the first book that dissects the internals of the system, presenting a detailed picture that grows incrementally as you read. For example, you will learn the roles of the firmware, the bootloader, the Mach and BSD kernel components (including the process, virtual memory, IPC, and file system layers), the object-oriented I/O Kit driver framework, user libraries, and other core pieces of software. You will learn how these pieces connect and work internally, where they originated, and how they evolved. The book also covers several key areas of the Intel-based Macintosh computers. A solid understanding of system internals is immensely useful in design, development, and debugging for programmers of various skill levels. System programmers can use the book as a reference and to construct a better picture of how the core system works. Application programmers can gain a deeper understanding of how their applications interact with the system. System administrators and power users can use the book to harness the power of the rich environment offered by Mac OS X. Finally, members of the Windows, Linux, BSD, and other Unix communities will find the book valuable in comparing and contrasting Mac OS X with their respective systems. Mac OS X Internals focuses on the technical aspects of OS X and is so full of extremely useful information and programming examples that it will definitely become a mandatory tool for every Mac OS X programmer.

Managing Apple Devices covers a wide range of technologies that help you manage both iOS and OS X devices. This guide will teach you to formulate an effective plan for deploying and maintaining groups of Apple devices using iOS 7 and OS X Mavericks. You will be introduced to a variety of Apple management technologies including Mobile Device Management, the Volume Purchase Program, and the Device Enrollment Program. You will learn the theory behind these tools and may work through practical exercises that teach you to use the tools. For example, not only will you learn how to use Profile Manager–Apple’s implementation of Mobile Device Management–but you will also learn about the ideas behind profile management, how to make configuration easier for both administrators and users while maintaining a highly secure environment. The exercises contained within this guide are designed to let you explore and learn the tools provided by Apple for deploying and managing iOS and OS X systems. These exercises move along in a somewhat linear fashion, starting with verification of access to necessary services, moving on to the configuration of those services, and finally testing the results of those services on client devices. Each subsequent lesson and exercises can be seen as building on previous topics, with more advanced topics towards the end of the guide. Each lesson in this guide is designed to give technical coordinators and system administrators the skills, tools, and knowledge to deploy and maintain Apple devices by: • Providing knowledge of how Apple deployment technologies work • Showing how to use specific deployment tools • Explaining deployment procedures and best practices • Offering practical exercises step-by-step solutions available Recommendations: The world needs a book like this. The authors convey not only the nuts-and-bolts of how Apple's tools work but also the philosophy behind the tools. This is essential reading for anyone coming to the Apple world from other platforms. We do things differently over here and understanding the philosophy is every bit as important - perhaps more so - than knowing which buttons to press. I commend this book to anyone starting or modernising an Apple deployment. Fraser Speirs Head of Computing and IT Cedars School of Excellence, Greenock, Scotland

Maintenance Audits Handbook: A Performance Measurement Framework explores the maintenance function and performance of an organization, and outlines the key aspects required for an effective and efficient maintenance performance measurement (MPM) system. Incorporating different aspects of traditional literature and considering various frameworks on the subject, it examines the auditing process as well as the use and development of maintenance metrics. It identifies different frameworks and models showcasing how MPM systems should be implemented as well as the values that are created when different frameworks are used. The book presents performance indicators within a framework that classifies and sorts according to functional and hierarchical aspects. It introduces techniques that can help determine the right set of performance indicators. It also outlines a process that combines both numerical indicators with the classical result of massive questionnaires successfully incorporating both the quantitative and qualitative aspects of maintenance performance. In addition, the author provides examples of MPM frameworks that are used in organizations with condition-based, vibration-based, and reliability-centered maintenance. A useful handbook for students and maintenance professionals, this book provides readers with an understanding of how to Align the organizational strategy to the strategies of the maintenance function Link the maintenance performance measures to the different hierarchies of the organization and establish effective communication between them Translate the MPIs at operational level to the corporate level (to create value for the whole organization and its customers) Identify the weaknesses and strengths of the implemented maintenance strategy Maintenance Audits Handbook: A Performance Measurement Framework provides readers with a sound foundation for developing and measuring a comprehensive maintenance improvement strategy using qualitative and quantitative data, and serves as an ideal resource for maintenance/mechanical engineers, maintenance/performance/business/production managers and industry professionals involved in maintenance.
