Switching from JAMF Pro to Meraki SM

My company is switching our Mac management from JAMF Pro to Meraki SM and I have a few questions:

 

1. Has anyone attempted this before?

2. Can the enrollment in SM be automated within JAMF Pro, and then automatically unenroll/remove JAMF Pro?

3. Is there any best practices I should keep in mind?

 

Thanks in advance for any insights!

Kind of a big deal

If you used DEP to do the original enrollment I would say almost certainly no.

Even then, I doubt you could because the certificates would be different.

 

You could pre-deploy the Meraki agent onto the machines, but I doub't you'll be able to just change the profile.

Re: Switching from JAMF Pro to Meraki SM

To my knowledge, there is no "silent" way to do this.

 

Maybe one of these two tries can help you out, test it on two different devices

 

First try:

  • If the devices are in DEP, link them to Meraki
  • In Meraki dashboard, download the SM agent
  • In Jamf push the agent to the devices
  • In Jamf push a script, which opens the Meraki enrollment link in the default browser -> User interaction needed.
  • After device finishes syncing in Meraki, unenroll it from Jamf

 

Second try:

  • If the devices are in DEP, link them to Meraki.
  • In Jamf prepare a script, which calls the following command

 

10.13.4 or lower
sudo /usr/libexec/mdmclient dep nag

 

 

macOS 10.14 or higher
sudo profiles renew -type enrollment

 

 

  • This should trigger a DEP notification and users will be able to enroll in Meraki -> User interaction needed
  • After device finishes syncing in Meraki, unenroll it from Jamf

 

I'm not sure if it's possible to have MDM profiles from different providers. I think they'll access the same API on the devices, could cause more troubles than you would like.
