Things To Know Before Upgrading to Mac OS X Yosemite (10.10)

Upgrading to Mac OS X Yosemite (10.10) may impact your Seapine product installation. There are a couple of issues to be aware of:
  • If you use Surround SCM PostgreSQL databases, the Surround SCM Server will not be able to connect to the databases after upgrading Mac OS X. During the upgrade, Mac OS X automatically deletes empty PostgreSQL folders that are required for the PostgreSQL server to run correctly. It’s easy to fix this issue. See this knowledgebase article.
  • If you use TestTrack Web, TestTrack Web Server Admin, SoloSubmit, or Seapine License Server Web Admin, users will not be able to log in to the clients after upgrading Mac OS X on the computer hosting the TestTrack Server or Seapine License Server. Mac OS X 10.10 uses Apache 2.4 and the required mod_cgi module is not enabled by default in this version. This one is easy to fix too. See this knowledgebase article.
We haven’t seen any impact on the TestTrack or Surround SCM Clients after upgrading to Mac OS X. If you have any questions or need help, please contact Seapine Support.
