We are providing these updates to our customers who would like to know the status of SNS products before upgrading a workstation to macOS 10.15 Catalina.
Prior to upgrading, you should also verify that your other (i.e. non-SNS) software and hardware products are compatible with this new OS from Apple. (But then, if you're reading this statement you probably already know this, and you know that a backup is also recommended!!)
The following product statements cover whether or not something major is affected simply by the process of upgrading to Catalina.
October 9, 2019: A preview build of the globalSAN iSCSI initiator with support for macOS Catalina is available for download here, and an automatic update will be pushed in the coming days. The only known issue in this preview build is that the install buttons may be difficult to see in macOS Dark Mode. These buttons are present even if not visible, and the button on the right side allows installation to proceed. This is being corrected for the forthcoming public release. Note that SANmp is not supported at this time, so care must be taken if using concurrent iSCSI connections.
September 30, 2019: A build of ShareBrowser 5.0.3 that is compatible with macOS Catalina is now available; if you would like this build please contact our support team. Please note: Avid compatibility currently has limited function and will be addressed shortly after Avid releases a compatible macOS Catalina build. No versions of Xtarget, or SANmp are approved for use with Catalina at this time.
September 11, 2019: A preview build of the globalSAN iSCSI initiator with support for macOS Catalina has been tested by a number of users and no major functional issues have been reported. If you would like to test this build please contact our support team. No versions of Xtarget, SANmp, or ShareBrowser are approved for use with Catalina at this time.
August 8, 2019: A preview build of the globalSAN iSCSI initiator is available with support for macOS Catalina. If you would like to test this build please contact our support team.
July 12, 2019: We are proceeding with new Catalina requirements for SNS software products. A small number of users have been running a preview-only build of the globalSAN initiator, and no issues have been found. No SNS software is approved for use with macOS Catalina at this time. Additional development, testing, and notarization is underway. Additional comments will be made in the coming weeks.
June 21, 2019: We have released an initial build of the globalSAN iSCSI initiator to a small number of testers. Additional development, testing, and notarization is underway, as is work on other products. Additional comments will be made in the coming weeks.
June 5, 2019: Apple announced macOS Catalina this week and followed with an initial developer release. We are proceeding with changes, app notarization, and testing. No SNS software is approved for use with macOS Catalina at this time. Due to the scope of work required (as well as dependencies on other non-SNS components) we anticipate we will be updating this statement again mid-late June 2019.
