Micro Focus Kanaka for Mac 3.2

December 2021

1.0 Update Since Version 3.1

Kanaka for Mac 3.2 supports macOS 10.15 (Catalina) macOS 11 (Big Sur) and macOS 12 (Monterey). Mac clients running macOS 10.12 and older should use version 3.0.1.

Changes to macOS have eliminated the option of Network Accounts in the Kanaka Plug-in. All logins will now create a local, mobile account. The policy configuration still includes the check box option to create local, mobile accounts, and this option will need to be checked if using the version the 3.2 plug-in. The check box is kept for backward compatibility.

1.1 Supported Mac Versions

  • macOS 10.15 Catalina

  • macOS 11 Big Sur

  • macOS 12 Monterey

Older versions can be used with older versions of Kanaka but are no longer supported.

1.2 Support for Open Enterprise Server

The Kanaka Engine component is supported on Open Enterprise Server 2018 SP1 or later.

Kanaka for Mac supports previous versions of OES as storage targets only.

1.3 Known Issue

There is a known bug with OES xtier that causes the Kanaka Engine to crash sometimes when the automated index rebuild runs. This is fixed with OES 2018 SP2 Patch Update 6 and OES 2018 SP3 Patch Update 1.
