Installing BigFix on Mac

BigFix provides Discovery Building occupants with software management for Macs. If your Mac does not have an icon called TriggerClientUI in the Applications folder, follow these instructions to install it.

Note: These instructions only work on the Discovery Building Network. Also, ensure that all laptops are plugged in throughout this installation. This is an intensive process and can temporarily reduce battery life.

  1. Connect to the Allshared drive in smb://r2d2-fs2.morgridge.net/allshared

    • Open Finder and click Go -> Connect to server

      Reminder: You must be on WIDMIR wireless, the Discovery VPN, or connected over Ethernet in the building

      Note: This is the same account used for the WIDMIR wireless, connecting to servers, and accessing Morgridge email
