macOS 10.15 - Terminal Would Like To Access Network Drive

New Contributor III

I have a local file distribution point that sits on a Mac mini share. Anyone inside that segment (determined in Jamf settings), points to that server to minimize network/internet load and provide a faster file transfer than downloading from the "cloud". It seems Catalina has new security measures in place that prompt the user to approve this before the mounting takes place. Was not an issue in 10.14 and under.

Any workarounds? I can't have 80 machines all downloading 320 gigs total in one fell swoop. Need to keep it local.

Yep, you can whitelist network volumes with a new PPPC profile payload in Catalina for SystemPolicyNetworkVolumes's_New.html
