There are many reasons to upgrade your Mac portfolio… the most important being the leveraging of Apple Security Updates. Of the 215 CVE Vulnerabilities in macOS for 2016, nearly all Security Updates were only patched for macOS 10.11 (El Capitan) and macOS 10.12 (Sierra).
Addigy has provided a step-by-step processing for deploying and upgrading macOS silently and remotely, but also by leveraging it’s inherent LANCaching, to ensure only one download occurs over the WAN and all other machines will dynamically fetch peer-to-peer in the LAN.
/Applications/Install macOS Sierra.app
sudo ./createOSXinstallPkg --source /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app --output /tmp/InstallSierra.pkg
go-utilsthat essentialy curls down files either over the WAN or distributes P2P with it’s peers in the LAN:
/Library/Addigy/go-utils cache-client download "https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.addigy.com/file.pkg" "/tmp/InstallSierra.pkg"
/usr/sbin/installer -pkg /tmp/InstallOSX_10.12.2_16C68.pkg -target / -lang en
You will find a Predefined Command within Devices in your Addigy account that allows you to automate deployment and upgrade, just point the web source for download (like Amazon AWS S3 path in our case).
You now have a fully upgraded machine from, in our case 10.7.5, to 10.12.2:
