When I upgrade to OS X Mavericks (10.9), after the final reboot (where it asks for your Apple ID), should I expect Screen Sharing to be functioning properly? (Q: Has anyone done this, or can verify that they've seen or heard it work?)
I'm running a Mac mini (Late-2012) using Screen Sharing with no physical display attached.
- I have already installed ARD 3.7.1 - http://support.apple.com/kb/HT6045
- and it is working fine
- so I no longer have the firewall issue as mentioned here: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/5520097
- (with 10.8.5 and ARD 3.7, I had to disable the firewall in order to use Screen Sharing)
The upgrade when smoothly. (I also had SSH (Remote Login) enabled just in case). I thought the upgrade might take 45 minutes; when it took longer I felt a little concerned, but right at about the 1 hour mark, I saw the Mac mini's (Internet Sharing) wifi signal on again (yay!), and Screen Sharing working just like normal! :) It showed the progress bar for the final installation step, just before the "Sign in with your Apple ID" screen.
(As long as you don't run into any installation problems), after the initial Screen Sharing disconnect by the installation process starting, it's completely unattended and easy/painless, took an hour. All the sharing services seemed to work normally after the installation process.
