Recently, Apple released their new macOS operating system 10.12, codename Sierra.
The ITS Apple team have been testing the beta releases of Sierra to confirm that it is compatible with our network and services, and there are a couple of important things to take into account before proceeding with an upgrade:
Known issue with RMIT network drives and Finder search
There is an issue with using Finder search (see gif below for an example) on an RMIT network drive, when running Sierra. A Finder search will, in some cases, cause your Mac to reboot with a kernel panic. We have raised this with Apple Enterprise Support and they are currently investigating this issue. If you choose to proceed with a Sierra upgrade then we recommend that you do not use Finder search until further notice. We will update this page with further information as it is provided to us by Apple.
Although all lab software will be tested on Sierra in preparation for Semester 1, 2017, at this early stage we cannot confirm its compatibility with all software.
For important software that you have installed, we recommend that you check the vendor’s website for confirmation on whether your installed version is compatible with Sierra.
So far, we have confirmed that the following applications are incompatible, until further notice:
McAfee Endpoint Protection for Mac
Final Draft 8
We will update this page with compatibility information as vendors make it available to us.
