There are a couple of ways to install IBM Explorer for Z/OS on OS X. Both of these require running
.sh scripts as described in the Explorer download instructions.
The preferred way is to run
imLauncherMac.sh but if you try to run
.app it may require additional steps.
The first step is to allow the
.app to run in the OS X Gatekeeper. Because the Installation Manager
.app executables are not part of the Mac App Store, the Gatekeeper may prevent them from running. You may get the following error message: “Install.app” is damaged and can’t be opened. You should move it to the Trash. The Installation Manager support team issued a technote that describes how to make the Installation Manager
.app run in the Gatekeeper.
You can temporarily disable this restriction by opening the Terminal app
and running the following command:
sudo spctl --master-disable
Run the Installation Manager
.app executable and don’t forget to turn the Gatekeeper back on by entering:
sudo spctl --master-enable
