MAC OSX (Mavericks) Update

October 23rd, 2013 by Jo-Ann

Yesterday, Apple has released a new version of OSX called “Mavericks”.  Despite it being made available to all Mac users as a free upgrade via the Apple Apps Store, we strongly encourage PSU Mac users NOT to download Mavericks at this time.

Our network access controller (Bradford) is not yet ready to support this new version of OSX on the PSU network and by upgrading you will not longer have access to “PSU Wireless” and will be forced to use the slower SSID “PSU Secure Guest.”  Furthermore, some PSU services are not available via the Guest network.

At this time, we are testing “Mavericks” for compatibility with all PSU systems, existing machines and other software.   We do not anticipate it taking more than a few weeks.  When testing is complete, we will alert users when our systems are ready to support the upgrade.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact the ITS Help Desk at 535-2929.
