MacOS Mojave was recently released to major fanfare (if nothing else, Apple knows marketing). While it was primarily a consumer-focused release (dark mode!), There were also many hotspots and stability enhancements that would make MacStadium customers happy. MacStadium engineers have thoroughly tested Mojave and, as expected, there have been no waiting time or package problems. Once they've fully discovered Mojave for security and stability and our internal vetting is complete, we make MacOS Mojave available as an "Instant Activation" option for new Mac distributions. This usually corresponds to the X.1 edition of a new operating system.
Customers are welcome to upgrade on their own and at risk, but we recommend warning when you adopt a new operating system. When upgrading, MacStadium suggests that:
- If you are running MacOS Server, be sure to review the changes that come with Mojave when someone may be crazy: https://www.macworld.com/article/32531
- Before you start the update, you can optionally back up the data by cloning the machine. If necessary, it is a much cleaner and faster recovery than Time Machine.
- While updating, keep in touch so that you can interact with any questions that require attention.
- Please note that an update may take 30-60 minutes.
- After you complete the update and restart the system, you must confirm the power and sleep plan options.
- If you prefer remote restart assistance, email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance during installation.
- Note Macs, but early OS publishing may still have errors and security issues.
