In my previous post about dummy receipts, I talked about how to use an empty hidden file to identify which configuration a machine has been imaged with. Today, I’m going to talk about how to use a plist to identify additional information about a machine’s configuration.
Recently I was working with a K-12 school on a large imaging and deployment project. One of the challenges we ran into was finding an easy way to determine which configuration machines had been imaged with. The solution we came up with was actually quite simple.
