By default, the FortiClient will start up automatically when starting macOS. This may not always be desirable but fortunately, auto-start can be disabled quite easily.
The FortiClient launch agent is located at /Library/LaunchAgents/com.fortinet.forticlient.fct_launcher.plist. Use any text editor to open and edit this file, but you probably will need to do this using Terminal and using sudo to launch a text-based text editor (e.g. vi or nano).
With the file open, look for these lines:
Change true to false and save the file. Note that updates to the FortiClient may overwrite the change.
When you're using your Synology exclusively as a iSCSI target, and have assigned the complete disk space to your LUN's, you will get notifications about the volume being (almost) completely full. Obviously, in this case, you may not want to receive these notifications. Luckily, you can turn these off:
Note that this will only disable the notifications (e-mail, SMS, etc.). The widget and WebUI will still show the alerts.
If the webclient is letting you down, you can also use PowerCLI to expand datastores.
First, as usual, expand the volume on the storage level. Then, fire up PowerCLI, log on to the vCenter/host and run the following script, replacing the name of the datastore you wish to expand:
$name = 'Datastore1' $datastore = Get-Datastore $name $esxi = Get-View -Id ($Datastore.ExtensionData.Host | Select -Last 1 | Select -ExpandProperty Key) $datastoreSystem = Get-View -Id $esxi.ConfigManager.DatastoreSystem $expandOptions = $datastoreSystem.QueryVmfsDatastoreExpandOptions($datastore.ExtensionData.MoRef) $datastoreSystem.ExpandVmfsDatastore($datastore.ExtensionData.MoRef,$expandOptions.spec)
The certificate for HiveManager NG has expired on October 23, 2019. As a result, Dell N Series switches running an older firmware or an older version of the HiveAgent, can no longer connect or be connected to HiveManager NG after this date.
The solution is to either update the switch firmware to at least 184.108.40.206, or manually update the HiveAgent to 1.1.29.

With the strong increase in hackers targeting Office 365 tenants, it may be useful to see who has Global Administrator access in your tenant. This can be done either via the Office 365 Portal but also through Powershell.
Note: be sure to install the required Powershell cmdlets before attempting this.
Connect to your Office 365 tenant:
To retrieve a list of users with the Global Administrator role, run this:
Get-MsolRoleMember -RoleObjectId $(Get-MsolRole -RoleName "Company Administrator").ObjectId | Select DisplayName,EmailAddress
You can append Export-Csv to export the list to a CSV-file.
By default, macOS'es Quick Look functionality caches previews of all files, even those found on file shares or encrypted file systems. This may not be what you want. Fortunately, you can disable Quick Look caching.
Open Terminal and type in these commands:
qlmanage -r disablecache qlmanage -r cache rm -rf $TMPDIR/../C/com.apple.QuickLook.thumbnailcache
If you want to set the Dock size in macOS to a specific value, you can use the Terminal to do so:
defaults write com.apple.dock tilesize -int 32; killall Dock
This will set the icon size to 32px, and then restart Dock. To get the current value of the Dock size:
defaults read com.apple.dock tilesize
