Resolved: PGP Whole Disk Encryption Maintenance Release for Mac OS X supports OS update to 10.6.5 or later
Last November, we posted about a potential issue with the Mac 10.6.5 (or later) upgrade process and PGP Whole Disk Encryption 10.0.X. Since then, Symantec has provided both a workaround and hotfix to address the client problem encountered with PGP Whole Disk Encryption when updating Mac OS X. A maintenance release that will proactively address this issue is now available.
Symantec has released PGP Whole Disk Encryption 10.1.1 for Mac OS X. After installation of this update, PGP customers can safely update their OS version to Mac OS X 10.6.5 (or later).
For more information on this maintenance release, refer to the post on Symantec’s Encryption Blog.
Complete instructions for how to successfully update to 10.6.5 can be found in this Knowledgebase article.
