I've run into a strange issue with people trying to Mount DMG Files. I've only experienced this with Monterey 12.5, regardless of whether it's a newly imaged machine, or an upgraded OS one. I've only noticed this with M1 Macbooks.
When you go to open a DMG, it just doesn't do anything at all. Maybe a process inside Activity monitor loads up, then nothing. The only way I can get them to mount is if I go to Activity Monitor, select diskarbitrationd and diskimagesiod and force quit them. Then it will mount them for a while... Ultimately this comes back though.
I've tried to use terminal to script this out so that some of my employees can install software, but killall doesn't seem to be having the same effect.
Is this something you've been seeing? This has not happened in any other versions of Monterey. My computer used to mount them just fine, but now I cannot. Any ideas or suggestions?
