Upgrading to macOS Sierra (v10.12) notes and observations

Here I'll compile some notes on my upgrade from ElCapitan to macOS Sierra (v10.12).

I'll update this post as I find new things. Please comment if you also find things.

Passwordless ssh authentication not working anymore macOS Sierra brings in a newer version of openssh that deprecate DSA key by default. So if your using DSA keys your passwordless ssh will fait and you will be prompted for a password.

If you invoke your ssh in verbose mode you will see something like:

    debug1: Skipping ssh-dss key /Users/courchea/.ssh/id_dsa - not in PubkeyAcceptedKeyTypes
