Mac OS X "SOE" continued

A few more snippets I am considering adding to my script. The build script loops the User Templates...tested today, they all work. Just trying to decide whether one size fits all ;) (will definitely add the dock changes, way faster!)

#* Default user preferences.
for USER_TEMPLATE in `sudo ls /System/Library/User\ Template`
 if [ -r "/System/Library/User Template/${USER_TEMPLATE}/Library/Preferences" ]; then
  #+ Menu bar transparency disabled
  sudo /usr/bin/defaults write "/System/Library/User Template/${USER_TEMPLATE}/Library/Preferences/.GlobalPreferences" AppleEnableMenuBarTransparency -bool FALSE

  #+ Battery MenuExtra Settings
  sudo /usr/bin/defaults write "/System/Library/User Template/${USER_TEMPLATE}/Library/Preferences/" ShowPercent -string "NO"
  sudo /usr/bin/defaults write "/System/Library/User Template/${USER_TEMPLATE}/Library/Preferences/" ShowTime -string "YES"

  # Speed up the dock, disable delay and animation.
  sudo /usr/bin/defaults write "/System/Library/User Template/${USER_TEMPLATE}/Library/Preferences/" autohide-delay -float 0
  sudo /usr/bin/defaults write "/System/Library/User Template/${USER_TEMPLATE}/Library/Preferences/" autohide-time-modifier -float 0

Overview The goal is to create a "MASTER" non-booted SOE that can be used with multiple models and it multiple sites with different local requirements.

My intention is to use this "MASTER" image in a manual restore procedure due to the fact netboot facilities cannot be made available to all the sites I support however the DMG files are netboot compatible.

TFTP on Mac OS X 10.7 shell script

I've just started getting into Cisco support a little more. It's my goal to eventually specialise (its probably the first time I've found something in I.T. support that I don't eventually get bored with ). Since I've got about 1 of each OS I need make sure I can perform my job on anything. Was working on my macbook pro and needed to download some router configs.
