Can't tether my Nikon Z6 II to Lightroom

I recently purchased a Nikon Z6 II camera and I watnt to tether it to Lightroom CC Ver. 10.1.1, Mac Pro (Big Sir Ver. 11.2.2). The camera has the latest firmware as well. I can import files from the camera to Lightroom but I can't get tether to work. Is this a software problem with this new camera/firmware or is there an issue with Lightroom CC? Any suggestions?

 

Thank you.

LR doesn't yet support the Nikon Z6 II for tethering:

Nikon did not add support for the z6ii and z7ii to the Nikon SDK until December 2020. The next update of LrC will be the first possible release available with the new Nikon SDK. Adobe does not discuss future releases with the public.

From everthing I have read if you have Lightroom 10.2 (which I have) and MAC with 11.4.  The Z6 II is supported.  What am I missing.  I cannot get it to work.

The Nikon Z6 II was indeed added to the tether-supported list for LR 10.2 (Mac only):
