Re: Other OS Support (Linux, Mac)

@iknowtech,

I am not a Mac admin, hence I'd like to clarify something - what's wrong with using ABM in conjunction with MDM for centralized deployment? Besides, as far as I understand JAMF is an MDM solution, so I think there is a slight contradiction in your post or I am just reading it wrong?

Thank you

That was my point. I think a Veeam agent will need to be mass deployed through ABM and/or MDM tool. Either that or through the general Apple App Store at smaller scale. Simply stating it’s not as easy as just deploying a MSI through group policy, and will require a whole different level of effort. I think the days of just downloading and installing an app off the Internet are numbered in the Apple world.

+1 for Mac Support, this is essential for some of our clients that we are moving from other backup providers. I guess we won't fully switch to veeam then...

Hi @netfire,

How many Macs do you have in your environment and how do you deploy and manage software on them?

Thanks!
