A new version of Mac OS is out, and as usual, we’re here to tell you how to get your Mac OSX system up and running.
In this post, we’ll be covering setting up your Mac to use an SMM server as well as setting up the various configuration options on your SMM instance.
Before we get started, we should point out that Mac OS 10.6.8 (and 10.8.5) are no longer supported.
We’re still going to recommend using Mac OS versions 9.3.8 or newer.
And for the full list of Macs that support SMM, see our Mac OS Support article.
Before you start setting up a new SMM account on your computer, let’s take a look at how Macs have evolved since Mac OS 9.
We’ll be using the latest version of the SMM Server Manager app, as well the SMMM Manager application.SMM Server Instance 1: Setting Up Your Mac to Use SMM¶Setting up SMM on a Mac is straightforward, with just a few things to remember.1.
The SMM Manager app will need to be installed and updated, so make sure you’re using the right version.2.
To set up SMMM, open the SMMs Manager app and select the SMDM server you want to configure.
The options will be displayed.3,4.
If you have multiple SMMs installed on your system, make sure each SMM has the right permissions and has a valid SMM Certificate.5.
On the next screen, choose the SMMP_EXECUTIVE_OPTIONS, and then click OK.
If you have not yet set up your SMMs, the default settings will automatically do so for you.
SMM will need a valid SSL certificate, which is required for SMM to work.
You will now be prompted to choose an SMMP server.
If your SMMP instance is configured to be a server, select SMM_EXCEPT_SSL.
If your SMAM server is configured as a client, select the server that you want SMM enabled.
If none of your SMMS are configured to use SSL, select Server SSL.SMMM will now ask you to set up the SMC, which in the case of SMM is just the SMSM account associated with the SMD.
You can see the details of each SMSM in the SMS Manager app.
Once you have set up all of your other settings, you can restart the SMMD Manager app by selecting SMMD_RUNNING, and restarting the SMMS instance.
The default configuration will work for you too.
SMMD will automatically detect and restart SMM instances.SMMs Server Instances 2-6: Configuring the SMPM¶SMM server configurations are similar to those for SMMs 1-4.1) Select SMM Settings.2) Under Server SSL, click Add.SMIM_EXCEEDED_SSL_Certificate will be added to the list of required certificates.
Select the certificate you just added.SMAM will now detect and check for a new SSL certificate.
You will then be prompted for the certificate.
If it does not exist, you will need the SMIM certificate.
Click OK to accept the certificate and restart the server.SMMS Server Instases 7-8: Setting up the server and managing SMM certificates¶Now that you have all of the server configuration options set up, it’s time to get to work setting up SMMs.
To do so, you first need to install and update Mac OS.
If the server you’re setting up has a Mac OS version prior to 10.9, it will need Mac OS updates, and the process for installing and updating Mac OS will differ from version to version.1.)
Open the Mac OS installer.2.)
If the Mac doesn’t display the menu, right-click on the Desktop and select Run as Administrator.3.)
In the Command Prompt window, type macports install macports and press Enter.4.)
You’ll be asked to choose whether you want the Mac to install Mac OS or Mac OS Sierra.
Choose the MacOS installer.5.)
If you choose to install Sierra, Mac OS may ask you for a time-out, and you’ll need to click Yes to continue.
If Sierra is installed successfully, the next step is to configure the SMAM.SMAMI Setup¶Mac OS is now set up for SMMP.
To configure SMM settings, open Mac OS, click on the Applications menu, and select Utilities.
In the Utilities menu, click SMM Setup.
This opens up the Mac SMM manager, where you can configure your SMMM instance and select SMMM options.
If SMM setup fails, you’ll be prompted with options for upgrading to a
