NOTE:   This solution action is no longer required with Connected Server ODB version 1.66 or greater.


Apple has enabled a new default security oriented featured called System Integrity Protection (aka SIP), often called rootless, in OS X 10.11 onward. The rootless feature is aimed at preventing Mac OS X compromise by malicious code, whether intentionally or accidentally. SIP locks down specific system level locations in the file system while simultaneously preventing certain processes from attaching to system-level processes.   SIP conflicts with the Connected ODB 1.61d installation by blocking certain Xerces files from being copied, causing the installer to fail.


To host the Connected 8 data file on a Mac OS El Capitan Server, SIP must be disabled before the ODB installation can be performed.  The following steps are required to install the ODB Server Software on Mac OS El Capitan.


Disable SIP on Mac OS El Capitan:

  1. Click the  menu.
  2. Select Restart...
  3. Hold down Command-R to boot into the Recovery System.
  4. Click the Utilities menu and select Terminal.
  5. Type csrutil disable and press return.
  6. Close the Terminal app.
  7. Click the  menu and select Restart....


Install the ODB v1.61d software on the Server


  1. After the SIP has been disabled, install the ODB software as per installation instructions.
  2. Once the installation is completed, launch the ODB Admin to serialize it and then perform basic start/stop operations to verify performance.


Re-Enable SIP

  1. Click the  menu.
  2. Select Restart...
  3. Hold down Command-R to boot into the Recovery System.
  4. Click the Utilities menu and select Terminal.
  5. Type csrutil enable and press return.
  6. Close the Terminal app.
  7. Click the  menu and select Restart....


NOTE:  
It is important to re-enable SIP after the ODB is installed to restore the computer back to the default Mac OS security settings.
