    To cut a long story short, it appears that there is something wrong with the certificate LaCie use in their driver installation, which results in the driver not being installed and the LaCie drive(s) being undetected and unusable by the system.

    I suspect this is due to a change in a recent version of Mojave, as reinstalling previous known-good versions of LaCie RAID Manager also fails in the same manner.

    Connecting the drive to another Mac that has not had a recent LaCie RAID Manager update works fine, but as of now my production machine is unable to talk to my drive array at all.

    I have made LaCie / Seagate aware of the issue.

    Would be good to know which version of the LaCie RAID driver you're experiencing this with; new or one that was working previously . . . ?

    I think it will happen with any version of the RAID driver installed with the latest version of Mojave, as the certificate would be controlled by the OS.

    ie: A previously working version of the driver will no longer install.

    Think I found a workaround...Find the driver installer, which for me was here:
    /Applications/LaCie RAID Manager/LaCie RAID Manager.app/Contents/Drivers/

    Run the driver installer LaCieMvumi.pkg
    Allow the certificate.

    Install driver and reboot.

    I've been in touch with LaCie and while they agree that the workaround does indeed allow the driver to install, they are continuing to work on a proper fix. For now, the workaround is good enough to allow us to get on.
