Since trying to enroll Ventura machines into Jamf Pro I have found these settings necessary
To get it to enroll as a Computer in Jamf, you’ll need to remove the existing enrollment profile, shut down fully (not suspend/sleep) your VM, edit the VM’s .vmx file (right-click the VM and select Show Package contents to find the .vmx file) with a text editor, and set the following:
SMBIOS.use12CharSerialNumber = "TRUE" serialNumber = "SERIAL" hw.model = "MODEL" serialNumber.reflectHost = "FALSE" hw.model.reflectHost = "FALSE" smbios.reflectHost = "FALSE"
Right Click on the Shut-Down or Off VM you wish to edit – The VM MUST be powered down/off for this to work – the Control Click to reveal Show Config File in Finder
Edit this file by adding these lines:
serialNumber = "C02XXXXXX153"
hw.model = "iMacPro1,1"
