Command Tools For Mac

  



Older releases are available and the Git source repository is on GitHub.

  1. Starting in macOS 10.13.4, you can use the profiles command line tool to determine if a machine is enrolled into a MDM, and if user-approved MDM is enabled. To do this, run the command shown below. If the Mac does not have user-approved MDM enabled, the script reports the following: No.
  2. To install the tools for Mac El Capitan and Sierra, use the following commands. If you run SQL Server in a Docker container, the SQL Server command-line tools are already included in the SQL Server Linux container image. If you attach to a running container with an interactive bash shell, you can run the tools.
  3. The Command Line Tools are bundled with Xcode. From Technical Note TN2339, Building from the Command Line with Xcode FAQ: Downloading command-line tools is not available in Xcode for OS X 10.9. How can I install them on my machine? In OS X 10.9, the Downloads pane of Xcode Preferences does not support downloading command-line tools.

Welcome to Microsoft Defender for Endpoint, the new name for Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection. Read more about this and other updates here. We'll be updating names in products and in the docs in the near future.

This topic describes how to install, configure, update, and use Microsoft Defender ATP for Mac.

Caution

Running other third-party endpoint protection products alongside Microsoft Defender ATP for Mac is likely to lead to performance problems and unpredictable side effects. If non-Microsoft endpoint protection is an absolute requirement in your environment, you can still safely take advantage of MDATP for Mac EDR functionality after configuring MDATP for Mac antivirus functionality to run in Passive mode.

Network connections

Mac

The following downloadable spreadsheet lists the services and their associated URLs that your network must be able to connect to. You should ensure that there are no firewall or network filtering rules that would deny access to these URLs, or you may need to create an allow rule specifically for them.

Spreadsheet of domains listDescription

Spreadsheet of specific DNS records for service locations, geographic locations, and OS.
Download the spreadsheet here.

Microsoft Defender ATP can discover a proxy server by using the following discovery methods:

  • Proxy autoconfig (PAC)
  • Web Proxy Autodiscovery Protocol (WPAD)
  • Manual static proxy configuration

If a proxy or firewall is blocking anonymous traffic, make sure that anonymous traffic is permitted in the previously listed URLs.

Warning

Authenticated proxies are not supported. Ensure that only PAC, WPAD, or a static proxy is being used.

SSL inspection and intercepting proxies are also not supported for security reasons. Configure an exception for SSL inspection and your proxy server to directly pass through data from Microsoft Defender ATP for Mac to the relevant URLs without interception. Adding your interception certificate to the global store will not allow for interception.

To test that a connection is not blocked, open https://x.cp.wd.microsoft.com/api/report and https://cdn.x.cp.wd.microsoft.com/ping in a browser.

If you prefer the command line, you can also check the connection by running the following command in Terminal:

The output from this command should be similar to the following:

OK https://x.cp.wd.microsoft.com/api/report

OK https://cdn.x.cp.wd.microsoft.com/ping

Caution

We recommend that you keep System Integrity Protection (SIP) enabled on client devices. SIP is a built-in macOS security feature that prevents low-level tampering with the OS, and is enabled by default.

Once Microsoft Defender ATP is installed, connectivity can be validated by running the following command in Terminal:
