# '''Active Directory:'''Macs upgraded to macOS High Sierra aren’t working correctly with Active Directory(AD). ITS staff aren’t being made admins by group, despite it being specified. Not all AD functions are broken; new users are able to log onto a machine. It seems the remedy is to re-bind the computer to AD. Mojave has yet to be tested for this issue, but it may well still be an issue.

Resolved Issues

VMware Horizon View Client (Virtual Classroom): Users might need to disable the mac firewall feature to allow for the VMware Horizon View Client to access a virtual computer. If you configure the VMware Horizon View Client on your computer (see https://mediawiki.middlebury.edu/wiki/LIS/Using_the_Virtual_Computer_Labs) and it only displays a black or dark gray window, then you have to:

  • First … download the latest & greatest mac version of vmware and install it.
  • You may need to shut off your Firewall or at least make an exception for vmware if you want to keep it on. (System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Firewall) See How to Allow Apps to Communicate Through Your Mac’s Firewall
  • You will need modify your mac’s privacy settings to allow the VMWare Horizon Client.app to “control your computer”.
  • Go to "System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy
  • Unlock the lock at the bottom with your credentials (username & password).
  • Once it’s unlocked you should see Vmware Horizon Client.app listed. If it is… check it and relock this window – then test Vmware Horizon Client. It should work.
  • If it’s not listed you will have to click the small [+] button and search for the application to add it. For some reason I had to ‘search’ for vmware … it wasn’t listed for me (odd)
  • Check its checkbox – relock the lock – test Vmware Horizon Client.



Pulse Secure VPN: Use Self Service on Middlebury Macs to download the latest version, or see http://go.middlebury.edu/vpn for a download link. Note: you may initally need to be added to the VPN Group to have access via VPN.

Vectorworks: The latest version is compatible.

Hindenburg Journalist: The latest version is compatible.

Active Directory: Some permissions have been encountered in the past, but they seem to have been resolved. They only affected ITS support, not everyday usage.

Gradekeeper: Gradekeeper is not available for Mojave. Canvas is the currently recommended platform for grade keeping.
