el capitanDue to security vulnerabilities that cannot be patched in the Macintosh workstations that have operating systems 10.9.5 (Mavericks) and older, a required upgrade (OSX 10.11.6) will be performed over spring break. However, you may opt to upgrade anytime between now and March 13, 2017.

While we do not anticipate any loss of data during this upgrade, it is strongly suggested that you back up your data to your S drive prior to your upgrade. In addition, it is possible that as part of this upgrade, software you may have installed  (e.g. VMWare Workstation, Final Cut Pro, etc) that is not provided by SHSU may no longer work or will require updating.

Should you have any questions, concerns, or would like to be upgraded prior to March 13, please contact the IT@Sam Service Desk.
