Installing Disk Image (DMG) Files

  • PDF

Article summary

Disk Image files, popularly known as DMG files, are a common format for application distribution in macOS. Though most enterprise applications offer a PKG format-based installer making them easier to distribute remotely and via MDM solutions, there are quite a bit of applications that an organization may require that are still in the DMG format.

Apple MDM protocol, by default, offers the ability to distribute Volume Purchase Program (VPP) applications and applications of type PKG and Scalefusion support both these methods. However, if you are looking to distribute DMG applications using Scalefusion, then we would recommend the following methods,

Method 1: Remotely Installing them via Scripts

This method can be used to install the application using a script that can be deployed easily via Scalefusion MDM Agent to all your devices. Please read our help document to use this method.

Method 2: Converting DMG files to PKG Files

This method requires you to convert the DMG file to a PKG file using your organization's Apple Developer Certificate and then distribute them via the Scalefusion Enterprise store. Please use our help document to use this method.
