Thanks in advance. Select the Media tab. Connect an external drive to your managed Mac using USB, Thunderbolt, or FireWire and verify that you can see the disk and open it, then eject the volume. Open the Go menu in the Finder or look at the sidebar of any Finder window and verify that you see the AirDrop menu item.

Note that you may have to log out before these changes take effect. Plug the external volume back into your Mac and note that it is no longer available. Open the Disk Utility.

Note that your external volume is visible, but unavailable in Disk Utility. Select the volume in Disk Utility and select the Mount button. IT admins can find the policy template they want within the Directory-as-a-Service console, configure it to the standards they want, and then attach the policy to the desired group of Mac systems.
