    Description

     

    With the launch of MacOS High Sierra by Apple, Ivanti provides support for the new Mac operating with the release of Ivanti EndPoint Manager 2017.3, and also in 2016.3 SU6. This release provides support for all features of Ivanti EPM, with the exception of MacOS OS Deployment of High Sierra images running on an APFS file system. Support for Provisioning and APFS has been added in 2017.3 SU1, but unfortunately cannot be added into 2016.3 SU6.

     

    • Ivanti will NOT be providing a patch for EPM 2017.1 to enable compatibility with MacOS High Sierra. If support for High Sierra is required in your environment you are encouraged to upgrade to the latest version of Endpoint Manager 2017.3 once it releases.
    • As with previous releases of MacOS, and according to Apple's best practices, Ivanti maintains an "n-2" support model for MacOS. With the release of High Sierra the Ivanti Supported versions of OS X\MacOS are:
      • 10.11 OS X El Capitan
      • 10.12 MacOS Sierra
      • 10.13 MacOS High Sierra
    • If you require an Agent to support 10.10 Yosemite please backup copies of your existing agents before applying the update to your server.
