    Legacy System extension warning

    We get the following 'warning' all the time on MC startup with MacOS Catalina suites running MC2020.8/10. Any ideas on how to stop it?

    "Legacy System Extension. Existing software on your system loaded a system extension signed by "Avid Technology Inc", which will be imcompatible with a future version of macOS. Contact the developer for support."

    Are you running NEXIS?   http://resources.avid.com/SupportFiles/attach/AvidNEXIS/AvidNEXIS_ReadMe_v2020.7.3.pdf

    • Starting with macOS 10.15.4, when you install a new Avid NEXIS Client kit on a system running this OS version, a Legacy System Extension warning is displayed when the Avid NEXIS Client kit loads and again periodically advising you to “contact the developer for support” for future releases of the client kit. Avid is working to keep our system extensions current with advancing requirements from Apple.

    Hi Marianna,

    Yes, NEXIS client v20.5 for our ISIS 5500 storage - so that's causing the problem!
    So I guess we wait for a NEXIS client update to resolve the issue.....or would installing an older NEXIS client version fix it?N

    I just heard back and apparently.... Its Apple’s increasing security warning. Avid has no control over this and backing down from Catalina to earlier (not actually recommended) is the fix.  Not backing down the version of Avid NEXIS. 

    Nothing much I can add here other than the above.

    Thanks for the advice!
    Dont think we can revert to Mojave with new Mac Pros or new iMacs anyhow, but will look into it.
