Microsoft SharePoint recognized as a Leader in...

Content is one of the most critical assets for every organization, embodying its knowledge and processes. How content is created, managed, and shared—and how users collaborate using that content—has gone through a drastic evolution from traditional enterprise content management (ECM) to dynamic content services.

According to Gartner, “Content services platforms are the next stage of enterprise content management, representing a shift from self-contained systems and repositories to open services.” To truly deliver on the promise of content services, you must balance manageability with ease of use to unlock productivity gains around your critical business information.

SharePoint delivers content services as the foundational content platform for Office 365, with capabilities for creating, sharing, protecting, and reusing information. Going far beyond merely storing documents, SharePoint hosts digital content like pages, videos, images, designs, 3D, medical scans, and...

Outlook for iOS and Android is adding your most...

Whether you’re planning your next dinner date or an upcoming meeting with teammates, the Outlook app is there to help you manage and make the most of your day. Today, we are adding several of your most highly requested calendaring features, including the ability to sync your shared calendars to your phone and manage and RSVP to recurring events.

A big part of our prioritization of new features and enhancements comes from the votes and feedback we receive from you on Outlook UserVoice. We thank you all for your feedback and are excited to hear what you think of our new additions!

Here’s a look at what’s new:

Sync shared calendars to Outlook

You will now be able to view and edit shared Office 365 or Outlook.com calendars, just like you can with your own calendars. Better yet, you can also share your own calendars with others and accept sharing invitations easily right from the app.

Set Up A Quick Maven Project

Maven can be as simple or as complicated as you’d like. The maven command line interface is mvn. You can quickly find the version using the –version option:

mvn –version

This is useful for a lot, but most notably to see where Maven is, which is in the home line. You can then create a project by using the archetype:generate option. Let’s say I wanted to create an artifactID of Precache with a standard environment (DarchetypeArtifactId) that doesn’t need to be interactive. That would look as follows using the mvn command:

mvn archetype:generate –DgroupId=com.precache –DartifactId=precache –DarchetypeArtifactId=maven–archetype–quickstart –DinteractiveMode=false

This creates a directory in Maven with a full hierarchy that matches what maven will need (a faux root) for each app created. The pom.xml file is created in the root of the faux root and outlines metadata for the project as well as dependencies. Next, copy any source code into ../src/main/java (where...

Enable Automatic Certificate Renewals In High Sierra

When you push a certificate out in a profile, the certificate is statically stored on a Mac. If you are delivering a certificate over the air and in a device profile that is seperate from the MDM payload then the Active Directory Certificate payload can enable automatic certificate renewals. You can enable automatic renewals with a defaults command (or manage the preference domain via MDM) using the following command:

defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.mdm-client AutoRenewCertificatesEnabled -bool YES

Note: Because they’re already dymanic and all, SCEP payloads cannot be automatically renewed.

macOS Startup Modifier Keys

The macOS High Sierra update has netted a few weird upgrades where I had to start over, restore, or boot into safe mode (e.g. if you DEP a device that forces encryption in Sierra and then gets into a loop after a High Sierra update is started). So I’ve been using modifier keys more than usual. The following startup modifier keys are available in macOS High Sierra:

  • Alt or Option key: Access Mac Startup Manager, which allows you to select a wireless network and then choose which volume you want to boot to.
  • C: Mostly legacy, boots to volumes on a CD, DVD, or USB drive.
  • Command-Option-P-R: Resets the parameter RAM (or PRAM for short).
  • Command-Option-R: Same as Recovery Mode, but over the Internet.
  • Command-R: Boots into the macOS Recovery Mode, useful when doing an internet restore or using Disk Utility to repair a volume.

Setup The Caching Service On macOS High Sierra

High Sierra sees the Caching service moved out of macOS Server and into the client macOS. This means administrators no longer need to run the Server app on caching servers. Given the fact that the Caching service only stores volatile data easily recreated by caching updates again, there’s no need to back the service up, and it doesn’t interact with users or groups, so it’s easily divested from the rest of the Server services.

And the setup of the Caching service has never been easier. To do so, first open System Preferences and click on the Sharing System Preferences pane.

From here, click on the checkbox for Content Caching to start the service.

At the Content Caching panel, the service...

Create Bootable Installation Media For High Sierra...

A bootable installer is one of the fastest ways to install a Mac. Rather than copy the installer to a local drive you can run it right off a USB disk (or Thunderbolt if you dare). Such a little USB drive would be similar to the sticks that came with the older MacBook Air, when we were all still sitting around wondering how you would ever install the OS on a computer with no optical media or Ethernet otherwise. Luckily, Apple loves us.

To make a bootable USB/flash drive of High Sierra like the one that used to come with the MacBook Air, first name the USB drive. I’ll use hsinstall for the purposes of this article. The format should be Mac OS Extended Journaled, although the new system drive will be apfs on the target volume. The installer is called Install macOS Sierra and is by default located in the /Applications directory. Inside the app bundle, there’s a new binary called createinstallmedia (nested in Contents/Resources).

Using this binary you can create an...

Demote an Open Directory Server using the Server app

macOS Server 5.4 running on High Sierra can have problems with Open Directory. Sometimes, you just need to reset your directory service. You can demote and restore the server if needed. But buyer beware, you may end up screwing things up while the directory server is being demoted and you’re restoring a backup. Or if you haven’t built out the directory server, you may end up just demoting the server and starting over. In this article, we’ll look at demoting the server.

Note: If you demote the service, and you don’t have a replica, you will destroy all users and groups.

To get started demoting the Open Directory master, first open the Server app and click on Open Directory.


From the Open Directory screen, click on the minus button in the Servers section. When prompted to Delete the directory service, click on the...

The first thing you’ll want to do on any server is setup the networking for the computer. To do this, open the System Preferences and click on Network. You usually want to use a wired Ethernet connection on a server, but in this case we’ll be using Wi-Fi. Here, click on the Wi-Fi interface and then click on the Advanced… button.

At the setup screen for the interface, provide a good static IP address. Your network administrator can provide this fairly easily. Here, make sure you have an IP address and a subnet mask. Since we need to install the Server app from the Mac App Store, and that’s on the Internet, you’ll also need to include a gateway, which provides access to the Internet and using the DNS tab, the name servers for your Internet Service Provider (ISP).
 
Once you have provided a static IP address, verify that you can route...

Add A VPP Token To Profile Manager On macOS Server

In order to use the Apple Volume Purchase Program (VPP), you will need an MDM solution (Profile Manager, Jamf Pro, MobileIron, Meraki, FileWave, etc). The same program is used for device-based VPP or user-based VPP. There are two programs, which is meant to simplify the experience of setting up an MDM solution and long-term maintenance. The first is the traditional VPP account, available to companies and other non-educational environments that have a DUNS number. The second is the newer Apple School Manager, for educational institutions.

Before starting to buy apps and associating those apps from an MDM solution, there are a few things you should know. The first is that your organization can have multiple VPP tokens or Apple School Manager tokens, and you can hierarchically manage apps this way. The second is that each token should only be installed on one MDM solution or server (if you have multiple instances of the same solution). Therefore, if you’re going to have...

There are a couple of ways to create groups in macOS Server 5.4, running on High Sierra. The first is using the Server app, the second is using the Users & Groups System Preference pane and the third is using the command line. In this article we will look at creating groups in the directory service with the Server app.

Once a server has been an Open Directory Master all user and group accounts created will be in the Local Network Group when created in Server app. Before that, all user and group objects are stored locally when created in Server app. Once promoted to an Open Directory server, groups are created in the Open Directory database or if you select it from the directory domain drop-down list, locally. Groups can also be created in both locations, using a command line tool appropriate for group management.

App Store Preferences To Set In On Server 5.4 for...

By default, macOS now updates apps that are distributed through the Mac App Store (MAS). Server running on macOS High Sierra is really just the Server app, sitting on the App Store, installed on a standard Mac. If the Server app is upgraded automatically, you will potentially experience some adverse side effects, especially if the app is running on a Metadata Controller for Xsan, runs Open Directory, or a major release of the Server app ships. Additionally, if you are prompted to install a beta version on a production system, you could end up with issues. Therefore, in this article we’re going to disable these otherwise sweet features of macOS.

To get started, first open the System Preferences. From there, click on the App Store System Preference pane.

Delete User Configurable nvram In High Sierra (10.13)

A nifty little feature of nvram is the ability to delete all of the firmware variables you’ve created. This can get helpful if you’ve got a bunch of things that you’ve done to a system and want to remove them all. If you run nvkram followed by a -p option you’ll see all of the configured firmware variables:

nvram -p

If you run it with a -d you’ll delete the given variables that you define (e.g. boot-args):

nvram -d boot-args

But, if you run the -c you’ll wipe them all:

Use The Profiles Command In High Sierra

You might be happy to note that other than the ability to interpret new payloads, the profiles command mostly stays the same in High Sierra. You can still export profiles from Apple Configurator or Profile Manager (or some of the 3rd party MDM tools). You can then install profiles by just opening them and installing.

Once profiles are installed on a Mac, mdmclient, a binary located in /usr/libexec will process changes such as wiping a system that has been FileVaulted (note you need to FileVault if you want to wipe an OS X Lion client computer). /System/Library/LaunchDaemons and /System/Library/LaunchAgents has a mdmclient daemon and agent respectively that start it up automatically. This, along with all of the operators remains static from 10.10 and on.

To script profile deployment, administrators can add and remove configuration profiles using the new /usr/bin/profiles command. To see all profiles, aggregated, use the profiles command with just the -P option:

Next, click on the Delivery tab.

 

At the Delivery screen, click on the Edit button for Email Addresses and enter every email address that should receive alerts sent from the server. Then click on the Edit button for Push Notifications. Here, check the box for each administrator of the server. The email address on file for the user then receives push notifications of events from the server.

Web Services in macOS Server, Linux and most versions of Unix are provided by Apache, an Open Source project that much of the Internet owes its origins to. Apache owes its name to the fact that it’s “a patchy” service. These patches are often mods, or modules. Configuring web services is as easy in macOS Server 5.4, running on High Sierra (10.13), as it has ever been.

To set up the default web portal, simply open the Server app, click on the Websites service and click on the ON button.

Use serverinfo in macOS Server 5.4 for High Sierra

macOS Server 5.4 (for High Sierra)  comes with the /usr/sbin/serverinfo command (which was originally introduced in Mountain Lion Server). The serverinfo command is useful when programmatically obtaining information about the very basic state of an Apple Server.

The first option indicates whether the Server app has been downloaded from the app store, which is the –software option:

serverinfo --software

When used, this option reports the following if the Server.app can be found:
This system has server software installed.
Or if the software cannot be found, the following is indicated:
This system does NOT have server software installed.
The –productname option determines the name of the software app:

serverinfo --productname

If you change the name of the app from Server then the server info command won’t work any longer, so the output should always be the following:

Server

The –shortversion command returns the...

Configure The VPN Service In macOS Server 5.4 on...

macOS Server has long had a VPN service to allow client computers to connect to a network even when they’re out of the home or office. And as with many a service on macOS Server, this is one of the easiest VPN servers you’ll ever setup. The server was once capable of running the two most commonly used VPN protocols: PPTP and L2TP. And while PPTP is still accessible via the command line, L2TP is now configured by default when you setup the server using the Server app.

Setting Up The VPN Service In macOS Server

To setup the VPN service, open the Server app and click on VPN in the Server app sidebar. The VPN Settings  screen has a number of options available, as seen here.

The VPN Host Name field is used by administrators leveraging profiles. The setting used becomes the address for the VPN service in the...

Promote A macOS Open Directory Replica To A macOS...

You’ve got Open Directory running and humming beautifully in macOS Server 5.4 (running on macOS High Sierra). You show up to work and the hard drive has died on that perfectly configured Open Directory Master. Luckily, you have a replica and you have an archive of your Master. You can restore or you can promote your Replica to a Master. What to do? Well, I can’t tell you what you should do, but I can tell you that Apple has planned for this. Here, we’re going to look at promoting that Replica to a Master. Because after all, hard drives fail. Let’s look at what all this looks like.

Create An Open Directory Archive

In order to properly restore an Open Directory Master or promote a Replica to a Master, you’ll need the SSL keys. You should also just keep archives of your Open Directory environment around (albeit in a secure location) because you really never know. To create an Open Directory Archive, which has the keys in it as well as data needed to...

Convert a macOS Volume to APFS in High Sierra

You can run High Sierra without converting a drive to apfs, Apple’s latest File System. However, you might encounter some odd behaviors, or want to take use of the enhancements in apfs. If you did a command line installation to skip the apfs conversion or are just trying to upgrade a volume that wasn’t converted during the upgrade process, 

  1. Boot the Mac into Recovery Mode by holding down the Command and R keys until you see the macOS Utilities screen.
  2. Open Disk utility.
  3. Choose your boot volume.
  4. Click on the Edit menu
  5. Click on Convert to APFS
  6. When prompted with “Would you like to convert to APFS?” click on the Convert button.
  7. When the process is finished, click on the Done button.

And that’s it. Enjoy.

Configure DHCP in macOS Server 5.4 for High Sierra

DHCP, or Dynamic Host Control Protocol, is the service used to hand out IP addresses and other network settings by network appliances and servers. The DHCP Server built into macOS Server 5.4 on High Sierra is similar to the DHCP service that was included in Server 10.2 and 10.2 and from the good ‘ole Panther days. It’s pretty simple to use and transparent, just as DHCP services should be.

To install the service, open the Server app and then click on the Show button beside Advanced in the server sidebar. Then click on DHCP.
 
At the DHCP screen, you’ll see two tabs: Settings, used for managing the service and Clients, used to see leases in use by computers that obtain IP address information from the server. You’ll also see an ON and OFF switch, but we’re going to configure our scopes, or Networks as they appear in the Server app,...

Using Wikis In macOS Server 5.4

A wiki is a repository of dynamically created and managed content, or content created or edited by multiple users collaboratively. This article is about using the wiki service in macOS Server 5.4 (the Apple Server app running on 10.13/High Sierra). I reference file services with WebDAV because it is a very nice integration piece that I think a lot of people will find pretty beneficial.

To get started with the Wiki service, first turn it on. This one isn’t heavily dependent on host names (other than being able to access the server from a browser) or directory services (other than being able to authenticate users, but local accounts are perfectly functional) and it doesn’t require the Websites service to be running as well. One should always have good working directory services and host names, still…

To enable the service, open the Server app and click on Wiki in the list of SERVICES in the List Pane.

Xsan Command Line Options In High Sierra

Let’s start out with what’s actually available in the Server Admin CLI: serveradmin. The serveradmin command, followed by settings, followed by san shows a few pieces of information:

/Applications/Server.app/Contents/ServerRoot/usr/sbin/serveradmin settings san

The results would be similar to:

san:computers = _empty_array
san:primaryController = "95C99FB1-80F2-5016-B9C3-BE3916E6E5DC"
san:ownerEmail = "krypted@me.com"
san:sanName = "krypted"
san:desiredSearchPolicy:_array_index:0 = ""
san:serialNumbers = _empty_array
san:dsType = 0
san:ownerName = "Charles Edge"
san:managePrivateNetwork = yes
san:metadataNetwork = "10.0.0.0/24"
san:numberOfFibreChannelPorts = 2
san:role = "CONTROLLER"

Here, we see the metadata network, the GUID of the primary (active) MDC, the name of the SAN, an array of serial numbers (if applicable – rarely encountered these days), the owner info plugged in...

Managing DNS Services In macOS Server 5.4 for High...

The changes in the Server app are pretty minimal in the macOS Server 5.4 version that we’re now looking at. All of the options from previous versions are still there and the dnsconfig command line interface for managing the service are basically unchanged. The DNS service in macOS Server, as with previous versions, is based on bind 9 (BIND 9.9.7-P3 to be exact). This is very much compatible with practically every DNS server in the world, including those hosted on Windows, macOS, Linux and even Zoe-R.

The first time you open the DNS Service click on the DNS service in the ADVANCED section of the list of SERVICES.
 
Then, click on the cog wheel icon below the list of records and click on Show All Records.

Configure The Adaptive Firewall In macOS Server 5.4...

macOS Server 5.4 running on High Sierra (macOS 10.13) has an adaptive firewall built in, or a firewall that controls incoming access based on clients attempting to abuse the server. The firewall automatically blocks incoming connections that it considers to be dangerous. For example, if a client attempts too many incorrect logins then a firewall rule restricts that user from attempting to communicate with the server for 15 minutes. If you’re troubleshooting and you accidentally tripped up one of these rules then it can be a bit frustrating. Which is why Apple gives us afctl, a tool that interacts with the adaptive firewall.

To enable the adaptive firewall, use the -f option:

/Applications/Server.app/Contents/ServerRoot/usr/libexec/afctl -f

Alternatively, use the -X option to disable the Adaptive Firewall:

/Applications/Server.app/Contents/ServerRoot/usr/libexec/afctl -X

Once run, you’ll receive an error similar to the following:

Setup An Open Directory Master In macOS Server 5.4...

Open Directory has never been this easy to setup for a basic environment as it is in macOS Server 5.4 (for macOS 10.13 running on High Sierra). As with almost any previous version of macOS Server and Open Directory, once you’ve installed the Server app, run the changeip command along with the -checkhostname option to verify that the IP, DNS and hostname match. If (and only if as it will fail if you try anyway) you get an indication of “Success.” I know, I know, you’ve been told that you didn’t have to do this kind of command line stuff any more… But really, you should – and if you don’t believe me, check out the contents of the attributes in the OD database… And besides, all you have to do is paste it in…

bash-3.2# sudo /Applications/Server.app/Contents/ServerRoot/usr/sbin/changeipchangeip -checkhostname

Which should respond as follows if all your DNS stuff is configured to match your host name:

dirserv:success = "success"

Initially, you no longer see...

Configure The Mail Service In macOS Server 5.4

Mail is one of the hardest services to manage. Actually, mail is pretty simple in and of itself: there’s protocols people use to access their mail (such as IMAP and POP), protocols used to communicate between mail servers and send mail (SMTP, SMTPS) and then there’s a database of mail and user information. In macOS Server 5.4 for High Sierra, all of these are represented by a single ON button, so it really couldn’t be easier, once you can just enter email addresses into the Users section.

But then there’s the ecoysystem and the evil spammers. They’re totally the worst. Like ever.

As the former systems administrator of a large number of mail servers, I firmly believe that there is a special kind of hell where only deep fried spam is served at every meal for spammers. Here, the evil spammers must also read every piece of spam ever sent for eternity. By the end (aka Ragnarok), they should plenty of chemically induced stamina, enough pills of other types to not be able...

Promote A macOS Server Open Directory Replica To An...

Previously, we looked at setting up an Open Directory Master in macOS. An Open Directory Replica keeps a copy of the Open Directory database available for users even when the Master goes offline. But it can also take a part of the load from the Open Directory Master and when using the new Locales feature, balance network traffic. To get started with an Open Directory Replica, first enable SSH, now disabled by default. If SSH is not enabled, you will not be able to create an Open Directory Replica. SSH is enabled on a server by opening the Server app, clicking on the name of the server and then clicking on the Settings tab. here, check the box for “Secure shell connections (SSH)”.
 
Next, use the changeip to check the host name. While the Server app is cool, it caches stuff and I’ve seen it let things go threat shouldn’t be let go. Therefore...

Configure Xsan Clients Using macOS Server 5.4

Yosemite brought Xsan 4, which included a whole new way to add clients to an Xsan. Xsan Admin is gone, as of El Capitan, but unchanged from then to macOS Sierra (other than a couple of binaries moving around). These days, instead of scanning the network using Xsan Admin. we’ll be adding clients using a Configuration Profile. This is actually a much more similar process to adding Xsan clients to a StorNext environment than it is to adding clients to Metadata Controllers running Xsan 3 and below. But instead of making a fsnameservers file, we’re plugging that information into a profile, which will do that work on the client on our behalf. To make the Xsan configuration profile, we’re going to use Profile Manager. With macOS Server 5, 5.2, and now 5.4 this trend continues.

To get started, open the Profile Manager web interface and click on a device or device group (note, these are scoped to systems so cannot be used with users and user groups). Then click on the Settings tab...

statshares in Server 5.4 for macOS High Sierra

The statshares option has an -m option to look at a mount path for showing the path to the mount (e.g. if the mount is called krypted this should be something like /Volumes/krypted):

smbutil statshares -m /Volumes/krypted

When run, you see a list of all the attributes OS X tracks for that mount path, including the name of the server, the user ID (octal), how SMB negotiated an authentication, what version of SMB is running (e.g. SMB_1), the type of share and whether signing, extended security, Unix and large files are supported.

Additionally, if you’d like to see the attributes for all shares, use the -a option after statshares:

smbutil statshares -a

You’ll then see the SHARE, ATTRIBUTE TYPE, and VALUE for each share mounted.

Overall, this is a nice health check type of verb to the smbutil command that can be added to any monitoring or troubleshooting workflow.

macOS Server 5.2/5.3 and below had this great file sharing service. And while the GUI elements are gone from the Server app in High Sierra, the options available in the client operating system have matured to the point where they’re no longer really necessary. You can still configure users and groups using the Server app, and once those are created, you’ll be ready to configure share points that can be accessed using the Sharing System Preferences.

Configure Sharing Through System Preferences
To access the sharing options, open System Preferences and click on File Sharing. First, we’ll configure the global options using the Options… button.

This brings up the ability to choose whether to share with AFP or SMB. Notice that FTP is gone and will need to be started from the command line. Check the box for each user...

The Calendar Server is a CalDAV Server, leveraging HTTP and HTTPS, running on ports 8008 and 8443 respectively. To enable the Calendar service in macOS Server 5.4, first open the Server application and click on Calendar in the SERVICES section of the sidebar.


Once open, click on Enable invitations by email to enable email notifications of invitations in the Calendar Server. Provide the email address and then click on the Next button.

At the Configure Server Email Address screen, provide the type of incoming mail service in use, provide the address of the mail server and then the port number used, if not a standard port for HTTPS-based IMAP (or POP if you’d prefer), the user name and the valid password...

The next perpetual release of Office

Today’s post was written by Jared Spataro, general manager for Office.

Today, at Microsoft Ignite in Orlando, we announced Office 2019—the next perpetual update for Office. This release, scheduled for the second half of 2018, will include perpetual versions of the Office apps (including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook) and servers (including Exchange, SharePoint, and Skype for Business). Previews of the new products will start shipping mid-year 2018.

Office 2019 will add new user and IT capabilities for customers who aren’t yet ready for the cloud. For example, new and improved inking features—like pressure sensitivity, tilt effects, and ink replay—will allow you to work more naturally. New formulas and charts will make data analysis for Excel more powerful. Visual animation features—like Morph and Zoom—will add polish to PowerPoint presentations. Server enhancements will include updates to IT manageability, usability, voice, and security.

If there’s one thing the more than 25,000 VCA employees know, it’s that we’re a pet-friendly work environment. In fact, I bring my rescue dog, Charlee, to work with me every day. I wanted to build on that idea of a welcoming workplace based on common corporate knowledge to promote a more connected culture among team members at our more than 815 veterinary hospitals across North America. When you have different cultures across such a large area, something as simple as understanding the common threads that bind everyone together is challenging.

Take control of your personal brand with Office

These days—with so many social media channels competing for our attention—creating a personal brand is the best way to stand out from that vast crowd vying for attention online. According to Mel Carson of Seattle-based Delightful Communications, crafting your personal brand statement can help you take control of where you want your career to go.

Mel has helped everyone from pet groomers to Fortune 500 CEOs develop their personal brands. “A personal brand statement is your shopfront to the hundreds of people looking to hire, partner, and connect with you,” says Mel. “Spend some time crafting your personal brand statement properly and it will stand you in good stead until the day you retire.”

“Find your mission—having a mission in the public domain acts as a signpost and filter as well as gives personal accountability,” says Mel...

Let’s discuss the basic input/output system for IBM PC compatible computing devices, aka BIOS. Wait, that’s not a good start, P.eople C.an’t reM.ember C.omputer and I.nternet A.cronyms. Ok, EFI – that’s a thing that’s like BIOS, right? You can lock it, it makes sure all your most vital hardware components are attached, and on the Mac it even throws up a faux loginwindow if FileVault 2 is enabled.

(Paragraph-long parenthetical: We are going to stop calling it FV2 at some point and just let it own the ‘FileVault’ name, since we all know that’s what we’re talking about, right? FV1 mattered, but it sure didn’t catch on like its successor. FV1 was a neat parlor trick, like Time Machine doing hard links to :all_the_things:. Anyway.)

Hook The Lintings

Friends don’t let friends commit puppet code with obvious errors. Especially when you’re working with a team, having a consistent style enforced by something like puppet-lint means less messy diffs as you send changes to each other to review. And if you’re leveraging stuff like r10k, you definitely don’t want that screwed up, where the rubber meets the road.

Here’s a way to use one of the more popular collection of puppet-specific hooks to add checks before you commit locally across the modules you maintain and deploy.

First, for consistencies sake, you probably want to make sure you have a consistent directory in your home folder to point at. If you don’t have one already, you can create a binary directory to store stuff like csshX, munkipkg, and other fun items that you want in your path.

mkdir bin
chmod 700 bin
chmod +a "group:everyone deny delete" bin

(if you want to add it to your path temporarily, you’d run PATH=$PATH:~/bin or add it on...
