Question: Using a new Mac Machine and want to have same developer environment as the old machine

Hi,


We are developing apps on mac machine using Xamarin.

1. From machine 1 we had created various certificates and provisioning profile on Apple Developer Store. But OS of this machine crashed. So we had to get a new machine.

2. From this machine I am not able to sign the apps since the certificates imported from store to this machine do have same signing requests. What needs to be done in this case?


We are really stuck and need to go live on some apps. Any help would be appreciated.

Mac mini, macOS Sierra (10.12.6)

If you have access to the old machine, the easiest solution is to use Time Machine. Make a Time Machine backup of the old machine. Do a clean install of macOS on the new machine. During the installation there will be an option to set up the machine using a Time Machine backup. When you set things up from a Time Machine backup, your new machine will have the same settings as the old machine.


If you do not have access to the old machine, your best option is to create new certificates and provisioning profiles on the new machine and sign your app with the new certificates.

My best guess is the apps would compile, but there could be an issue submitting to the App Store. You could try building your app with a new certificate and see what happens.


You should contact Apple's developer support with this question. Apple employees do not answer questions in this forum.
