Hi there,

has someone already tried to deploy Viscosity with bundled preferences on BigSur? It seams to fail to install the preferences for me. The same installer works flawlessly under Catalina.

Hi Henning,

There are no known issues deploying a bundle on macOS 11. If you'd like for us to take a look at your bundle template and see if anything stands out, please feel free to send it in an email to our support email address.

One thing to consider is that the standard bundling template is designed to run as the same user that intends to use Viscosity. It'll only install the bundled preferences for that user's account on their machine. If Viscosity is being deployed to a managed machine using a different account (for example the root account, or a different user's account), then the bundled Preferences will not be accessible.

In these instances we recommend using the managed bundling template, which will deploy the bundled settings machine-wide. The template can be downloaded from the Jamf Now or Munki guides: ... nterprise/
