Relevant mostly to OS X admins
For far too long, I’ve been irritated with these digital rocks in my shoes, which would appear on wake from sleep, telling me I didn’t have permission for a wide variety of executables:
If you tried either kind of allow, you’d end up at an administrator credential request for Parental Controls. Except this was going on with company owned machines- there were no Parental Controls in place, so things didn’t add up.
Thankfully, my friend Stephen Boyle answered my Slack query: check for an application restriction profile, and pull it. Sure enough, I had a profile to prevent my users from attempting to install High Sierra. After pulling that profile, the rocks are out of my shoes.
