The session opens successfully from a MacBook using the Citrix Receiver for Mac.

Problem Cause

Because the Mac devices do not have a registry like Windows devices, a license needs to be issued to the client devices name. If the device does not have a name, it cannot be issued a license. It attempts to assign a license to a null value, and the session drops.
