MacOS Mojave

Revision as of 11:35, 6 November 2018 by Nathan Burt (talk | contribs) (Current Known Issues & Areas of Concern)

The release date for macOS Mojave (10.14.x) to the public is September 24, 2018. This page will be updated as new developments arise. ITS does NOT recommend updating macOS until extensive compatibility testing has been completed. If you wish to be a tester, and understand the risks that may entail, please contact the helpdesk with the number of computer to be exempted from our efforts to manage the release of this new OS version.

As with all operating system upgrades, there are potential issues of compatibility with applications and services. If you have a question as to whether an application you are using will be compatible with Mojave, please check with the Helpdesk or with the application vendor.

Current Known Issues & Areas of Concern

  1. Active Directory: Macs upgraded to macOS High Sierra aren’t working correctly with Active Directory (AD). ITS staff aren’t being made admins by group, despite it being specified. Not all AD functions are broken; new users are able to log onto a machine. It seems the remedy is to re-bind the computer to AD. Mojave has yet to be tested for this issue, but it may well still be an issue.
  2. Avid Pro Tools 2018: "Pro Tools 2018 is not yet fully compatible with macOS 10.14 Mojave" - please see http://avid.force.com/pkb/articles/en_US/compatibility/Pro-Tools-System-Requirements for the latest.
  3. VMware Horizon View Client (Virtual Classroom): Users might need to disable the mac firewall feature to allow for the VMware Horizon View Client to access a virtual computer. If you configure the VMware Horizon View Client on your computer (see https://mediawiki.middlebury.edu/wiki/LIS/Using_the_Virtual_Computer_Labs) and it only displays a black or dark gray window, then you have either disable your firewall or allow an exception for VMware Horizon View Client application to allow connections. See How to Allow Apps to Communicate Through Your Mac’s Firewall
  4. Vectorworks: Mojave is not recommended for versions of Vectorworks prior to 2018. Read more here: Vectorworks' "macOS Mojave Knowledgebase article".
