IMPORTANT FROM MICROSOFT: OneDrive no longer supported on MacOS 10.10 and 10.11

FROM MICROSOFT:
The OneDrive engineering team is committed to bringing you the best, most secure, end user experience possible. To support that commitment, the OneDrive Desktop application (sync client) will look to phase out support for Mac OS X Yosemite 10.10 and 10.11. These changes will go into effect February 1st, 2019. Note: Mac OS X Yosemite 10.10 has been out of mainline support since August 2017.
How does this affect me?
  • Existing OneDrive sync client installations on unsupported operating systems will stop updating. These clients will continue to run, but functionality will no longer be tested. It is not advised to continue to run on these unsupported operating systems.
  • New installations on unsupported operating systems will be blocked.
  • Bugs and issues found on or specific to unsupported operating systems will no longer be investigated or fixed.
What do I need to do to prepare for this change?
To ensure a smooth transition we recommend that you upgrade machines to Mac OS X 10.12 or above before February 1st, 2019. We do recommend updating to macOS Mojave 10.14 for the best experience.

Largestorage and Fileserver update reminder!

Happy (Western) New Year and Welcome Back!

We recently upgraded the access protocols to our Largestorage and Fileservers at NIS, so if you’ve been experiencing problems connecting to them, that is why. But don’t worry! Here are the instructions for updating the settings on your computer if you access from school:

  1. CMD+K keyboard shortcut will open the Connect to Server window below:
  2. For LargeStorage  access: smb://192.168.30.10/    OR  smb://largestorage.nanjing-school.com/
  3. For FileServer access: smb://192.168.30.12/     OR  smb://fileserver.nanjing-school.com/

Note that the SMB part is quite important and the main difference.

If you are trying to connect via the links on the school website from home, come and see us in IT for help, or, if you are so inclined, follow the (slightly) more complicated directions below:

  • While at school you need to download the new SSL VPN Client Software by doing the following:
    1. Connect to  https://218.94.153.195:4433 with a web browser

    2. Type your username and password (i.e. your Veracross login information)

    3. Choose the correct installer for your operating system (MacOS version)

    4. Save the file to your computer

    5. Click install.

  • Once installed:
    1. Select the WatchGuard Mobile VPN with SSL from your Applications
    2. When asked for server, type 218.94.153.195:4433
    3. Enter your username and password (same as before)
    4. Click the Connect button, and the VPN connection should be established.

Congratulations, you should now be able to securely connect to the Fileserver and Largestorage servers from home using the SMB protocol.

Once again, if you have any problems, please don’t hesitate to contact us in IT!

Thanks,

The NIS IT Department
