In this chapter, you’ll find the necessary details for managing macOS clients with opsi. First, a table presents the macOS versions supported by opsi 4.3, followed by details concerning the Arm-based Apple M1 processor.

The macOS client agent is a paid extension. This means that you need an activation file to unlock it. You will receive this file after you have purchased the extension. For evaluation purposes, we’re happy to provide you with a temporary license free of charge. Please contact us via email.

Mac Computers with Apple Chip

If your Mac features Apple’s M1 Arm processor, you’ll require the Rosetta framework to install the opsi client agent. Here’s how to install Rosetta:

softwareupdate --install-rosetta --agree-to-license

You can verify that the installation was successful using the pkgutil command. The output should look something like this, for example:

$ pkgutil --pkgs | grep Rosetta
Native support for devices with an M1 Arm processor is planned, and the necessary test hardware has been ordered. As of January 2021, we cannot specify exactly when native support will be fully implemented.
