comment How to have Puppet enforce enabled reporting?
Right, but that'd still put me on the hook to keep track of the defaults for each OS / version, and would potentially break things or introduce problems if those defaults changed (or more were added) in future versions. All I really want is to make sure that "report = true" is in the "[agent]" section, so I may be able to do that with fairly basic Ruby. I'm just really surprised/confused that I seem to be the first person wanting to do this.

I guess that'd work, but then I'd have to keep track of what all the defaults are for each OS and update those as they change with new releases. That just seems over-the-top unnecessary for something that is apparently pretty typical--even more so considering the purpose of the software.

Is that going to be safe across operating systems, though? There are a lot of other things declared in puppet.conf that look like they'd vary.

comment AirPlay over unicast DNS-SD. Anyone got it working?
That's the best workaround for the problem that I've found so far, but my question specifically pertains to DNS-SD, which is the unicast component. So far AirPlay is the only Bonjour service that I've found works over mDNS only, but not DNS-SD... which is what leads me to believe I might just be missing something. Without any documentation, though, asking if anyone else has figured it out is all I can really do.

comment No space left on device — but there is space
I've done some googling and tracked it down to a ton of files in my Samba spool directory. I guess I can take it from here. Thanks!

Well, it definitely looks suspicious. i.imgur.com/wKkHJ.png What can I do about it?

comment Mac OS X printing to CUPS - More intuitive authentication failure?
@gravyface Server-side, we see repeated failed authentication attempts (about once each second) from any machine sitting in the limbo of "bad credentials accepted" and "On hold (authentication required)". From the logs, I can see their IP address, but that's about it. I understand we can't expect everything to work cleanly and intuitively with BYOD, but in this case it really seems like if authentication failure worked like it does in other areas of OS X (prompts user again), that'd be acceptable.

comment Mac OS X printing to CUPS - More intuitive authentication failure?
That defaults command helps, but again, our primary problem is that it's confusing to users who bring their own device, and we're moving away from the idea of having to touch/image/configure the machines being issued to students anyway. I think if the authentication box would just "shake" and let them re-enter credentials, that'd be acceptable. As of right now, though, it accepts the credentials and then leads to a help desk call.
