Slides from the FileVault 2 Session at Jamf’s 2011 National User Conference

For those who wanted a copy of my FileVault 2 talk at Jamf’s 2011 National User Conference, here are links to the slides in PDF and Keynote format.

These are mostly identical to my MacTech 2011 slides, with a couple of additional slides discussing the reporting functions currently available for FileVault 2 in Casper 8.3 and higher.

    Do you know a way to add a hidden user account (below 500) to the list of users that can login to the FV2 login screen? Our enterprise IT account is a local admin account that is hidden so user can’t delete it from the Users & Groups GUI in System Preferences.
    Once FV2 is enabled, our IT people don’t have an option to login past FV2.

    Any suggestions?

    (I attended your presentation at the JAMF NUC. Excellent presentation!)

    To the best of my knowledge (confirm with your Apple SE), it’s not currently possible to enable a user with a sub-500 UID for FileVault 2. The user needs to be “visible” and have a UID higher than 501 in order to be enabled.

    You may want to try setting up a new user with a UID higher than 501, enabling it with FileVault 2, then changing the UID so that it’s a sub-500 UID. I haven’t tested that, but it may be a workaround for the issue you’re seeing.
