Kernel extension changes in macOS High Sierra

Last Updated:

Starting with macOS 10.13.4, enrolling in MDM no longer disables User Approved Kernel Extension Loading, and extensions previously allowed to load for that reason now require approval. However, you can use MDM to specify kernel extensions that load without approval. This requires a Mac that is using macOS 10.13.2 or later and is either enrolled in MDM via DEP, or whose MDM enrollment is User Approved.

How to specify kernel extensions with MDM

Below is the information for the Zoom Rooms Application and Kernel Extension which can then be approved by your MDM server

  • Display Name: Zoom Video Communications, Inc.
  • Team ID: BJ4HAAB9B3
  • Extension Path:/System/Library/Extensions/ZoomAudioDevice.kext
