Deprecation Notice

NetBoot and Software Update services have been deprecated by Apple, and as such this project will no longer be receiving further updates.

On 19-March-2021 this repository will be archived.

What is NetSUS?

The NetSUSLP allows you to host an internal software update server (SUS), a NetBoot server, file shares, and a LDAP Proxy server all on the same Linux system. For a list of supported Linux distributions see Requirements.

  • Web Application - The NetSUSLP includes a web application that can be used to easily manage your NetBoot, Software Update Servers and File Shares as well as your LDAP Proxy. The dashboard page is shown above.

  • File Sharing - Use the NetSUSLP as a file share distribution point for Jamf Pro. You can share files using SMB, AFP, and HTTP.

  • Software Update Server - Unlike a standard SUS, the SUS hosted by the NetSUSLP allows you to control which software updates should be installed on each computer in your organization.

  • NetBoot Server - The NetSUSLP allows you to host a NetBoot image. You can boot computers to a NetBoot image in place of a recovery partition or external drive when imaging.

  • LDAP Proxy - Use the NetSUSLP as a lightweight proxy that acts as a middleware layer between LDAP clients and LDAP directory servers.
