Supporting Evidence

Over the past few years I've had the pleasure of working on different projects. Each project came about in a different way and for a different function, but I enjoyed them all!

The Warranty2 script was built upon the work of Scott Russell from University of Notre Dame, Joseph Chilcote of Adobe, and Gary Lariza of Puppet. It combines work that I have done, as well as Nate Walck and Nathan Felton. The scripts can be automated to report on the warranty status of Apple Computers. Over the years, the script has grown to include features such as batch processing of csv files and exporting to many different formats.

Backup/Restore was an idea I had to automate the imaging of computers while retaining user data. Using DeployStudio and the Backup/Restore scripts, an Apple computer can backup all of the users data, have a new OS installed (complete with updates and new applications), then restore the users data! It's also great for backing up user accounts before routine maintenance as a precaution. While the scripts were designed to be used with DeployStudio, they could also be used independently.

The TSM Backup Check script uses bash scripting and AppleScript to scan the logs of the Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) backup software and report on the backup status. Users can have the script run at a specified time, or whenever they'd like, to check their backup status. The TSM Backup Check script is wrapped in a convenient app for accessibility.
