Symptoms

Mac Edge Client's Icon, application name, company name, amongst other things can be customized on BIG-IP before deploying on end user's machine. But on Mac Edge Client on macOS 10.12 Sierra this customization is not applied.

Impact

Mac Edge Client customization is not applied on macOS 10.12 Sierra. Functionally there should be no impact except that user will see default application visually.

Conditions

macOS Sierra 10.12, Edge client, customization

Workaround

run following command on Terminal and re-launch Edge client: For English: $ defaults write -globalDomain AppleLanguages -array "en" "en-US" For German: $ defaults write -globalDomain AppleLanguages -array "de" "de-US" For Korean: $ defaults write -globalDomain AppleLanguages -array "ko" "ko-US" For Japanese $ defaults write -globalDomain AppleLanguages -array "ja" "ja-US" For French $ defaults write -globalDomain AppleLanguages -array "fr" "fr-US" For spanish $ defaults write -globalDomain AppleLanguages -array "es" "es-US" For Chinese traditional $ defaults write -globalDomain AppleLanguages -array "zh-Hant" "zh-Hant-TW" "zh-Hant-US" For Chinese simplified $ defaults write -globalDomain AppleLanguages -array "zh-Hans" "zh-Hans-US"
