Pepijn Bruienne Reverse-Interview by Charles Edge,...

Once again donning the yellow jersey, Charles Edge returns to reverse-interview Pepijn Bruienne, recorded back at the turn of the year. We’re so happy to have Charles back with his new role at Bushel, mostly because we can finally drag out the ‘scrum masters’ tag again. Lovingly polished by the awesome Aaron Lippincott, we’re splitting this one in two to get it out sooner rather than later.

About Allister Banks

Allister has had the honor of writing a book with Charles Edge (http://url.aru-b.com/packtbook), an article or two for MacTech Magazine, and speaking at conferences like MacAdmins Conference at Penn State. He lives in NYC, contributes to various open source projects, and speaks enough Japanese to order food.

Thunderstrike Need-To-Know

When we heard about the ‘bootkit’ exploit branded Thunderstrike having the potential to remove all of your security controls it was pretty disturbing. Luckily Apple controls a relatively small number of models, and released a patch for several affected CPU versions, bundling it with 10.10.2 so as to lessen the number of reboots required. Unfortunately Apple doesn’t seem to have updated this page of boot ROM versions accurately. (You can query the current boot ROM value of your fleet with this munki conditional by Graham Gilbert.)

Still, in the description about what the security content of the patch (as separately provided to 10.8 and 10.9 as security update 2015-001) contains, they get...

Stop Remediating While you Audit

Let’s talk about orchestration. This term is different than just applying the normal set of configuration profiles you want near-permanently enforced on the workstations under your management. Too much theory isn’t necessarily helpful, but sometimes I come across something that feels right, and then experience validates it as a real, valuable practice to follow. My thesis: you should not affect a change through orchestration on the same pass as you check if the change is necessary. Taking a step back, orchestration as a concept, in my own definition, means you’re leading the customers under your care through a change. Better practices of sysadminery include not having too rigid or monolithic a structure when piecing your workflow together. These concepts combine when I see folks talk about (potentially continuously) affecting changes without first, separately, discovering/evaluating/assessing what needs to change, or the impact it will have to make it.
