OS X :: Matching User Account And Domain Name

Nov 20, 2009

I created my account username om my Mac ( OSX 10.6.2 ) long before I created my website. If we take it that my user account name happens to be 'myname' and my website happens to be [URL]. I hadn't noticed it was a problem until the other day. I changed the site base ref to work from [URL] away from {URL]. The problem is on my Mac, the address [URL] is referring to the local web server, ie pre installed Apache and library/webserver/documents not the actual web address. If Web server is switched off via the sharing control panels - the address returns a google not found page? which seems very odd.

It will also do this from any user account - identical results, so I know the Mac has reserved the name in some way. I don't want to rename my user account. I cant see my own website on my Mac which is very frustrating, as my website root is forcing all traffic to [URL] ( which is what I want of course ) and not [URL]. I have to use Parallels with a version of Windows to see the site properly.

OS X :: Migrating Mobile User Accounts From One Domain To Another

May 7, 2010

I'm looking after some Macs that are migrating over to a new domain. The users are out of the office a lot, so they use mobile accounts on Macbook Pros using the most recent version of Snow Leopard. A lot of their configuration is specific to their mobile user accounts and I obviously can't log into the new domain using a mobile account from the old domain (I tested). So I found this: [URL] It outlines what I need to do in order to delete the local cached account without deleting the home directory. It also outlines how to give the same user account on the new domain access to the same home directory on the Macbook that they were using before.

- Unbound from old domain
- Bound to new domain
- Logged on as root and opened terminal and ran the below commands:
dscl . list /users (to find the user account)
dscl . -delete /users/USERNAME (this deleted the locally cached account)
chown -R USERNAME:NewDomainName.localOUThatUserIsIn /users/USERNAME

When I run the last command, I get the following chown: NewDomainName.localOUThatUserIsIn: Invalid argument (it doesn't display the after local) I verified that I was using the correct OU. I added NewDomainName.local to the DNS tab in Network settings under the domains to search in.

MobileMe :: Can Get Rid Of ICloud Account Set Up To Personal Domain Email

Jun 19, 2012

When iCloud first arrived, I guess I signed up for it using my regular e-mail address. This e-mail address is at my own personal domain. I've had MobileMe and just got rid of it, essentially transferring it over to iCloud. So I now have two iCloud accounts, one set up for my personal e-mail, one with my old MobileMe stuff including my Calendar, Contacts, and Me.com E-mail (which I do use sometimes). What to do? I don't want 2, as it will get so confusing. Any way to combine? Can I get rid of the iCloud account set up to my personal domain email? Also, what about my iTunes Store account, which is set up with personal domin email?

MacBook Pro :: OS Lion Couldn't Access Guest Account And New User Account

May 24, 2012

I bought this new MacBook Pro a month ago.  When I try logging into my guest account, it froze.  I had no other alternative but to get out of it by pressing the power button.  Then I tried open a new user account to see if it also has the same problem.  Unfortunately it did have the same problem - froze after I logged in.  I had done a harddisk check, there seemed to be no problem.

OS X Tiger :: Lost My User Account / Changed Account Name In Finder

Jun 3, 2010

I have just lost my user account that I normally use. It happened after I changed my name for my user account in the Finder. I clicked Get Info and changed the name from Helen Andersson to only Helen. and after that nothing is the same and i cant go back either that I know of. When I start the computer now everything that I had on my desktop and in my Itunes, Icalendar, addressbook, and Aperture are not there. I have found them (well at least what i had on my desktop and my itunes but not the other information), so they are still on the computer but I dont know how to get back to my normal user account.

When I check my System preferences Account I only have one account so its not like I made a new one and have two. But I can also see that the one I am using now that has nothing on it is made today.

So please if anyone can help me get my iMac to go back to the old user and all its settings the same way I would very much appreciate it. Because this user has nothing and I have to start everything from scratch even my internet settings I had to download again to be able to go on the internet. This user has nothing.

Jun 25, 2012

Up till now, all the family have been using just one user account on our iMac. (OK, I now know that's not a good idea!) I'm now going to be working from home so have set up a new user as Work. I've been using an IMAP mail service in Mail on the family user account and I've now set it up on the work account. If I delete the IMAP account from Mail in the family user account, will this delete my mail off the IMAP server so I cannot access it on the wrok user account?

Intel Mac :: New "Other" User Account Appears On User-list At Login?

Feb 1, 2012

Today when I turned on my iMac, it went to the login screen and then something odd happened. I saw a second account on the login list that i never made. It is called "Other: and has an icon with lines and spheres (like a networking icon). Also when I click on it, it asks for a name and password.I logged into account and went straight to System Preferences ->Accounts and there is no "Other" in the list of accounts there on the left.just my account. Is this a virus or have I been hacked? Or is this is bug?

OS X :: One User Account Will Not Open?

Nov 28, 2008

There are a number of user accounts on my computer.

All of them work, apart from one.

When I try to log into that User Account it will not open. I am using the correct password .

I can see the contents of that account when I am logged into one of the other accounts.

Is there any simple way of getting the User account working properly again?

I have backups of the Users folder. I could just replace the User that I cannot log into with that User from one of the backups. But the information will be slightly different as the backups were done weeks ago. Also I don't want to use those backups as I have had problems doing similar things before (because the system seems to remember where the files came from and that causes clashes).

I am running OS 10.5.5

OS X :: User Account Deleted

Dec 16, 2008

So it's finals week, and I restarted my computer, and when it came back on, it went to the login screen. My computer never goes to the login screen. I looked at the accounts that were present, and none were mine. Only the "Other..." button was present, so I clicked on this and attempted to manually type in my account name and password, and I was unable to log in. I was able to access the computer through the System Administrator login (root name and master password). My harddrive still shows my name under the User Accounts, however when I go into the System Preferences to make changes to my accounts, only the root account shows. All of my information is still here, but is there a way to restore the account, so I can go back to using my machine with all of its settings? I'm running Leopard 10.5.5 on a Macbook Pro 17", 2.16ghz (1st generation).

OS X :: Moving From One User Account To Another

Dec 25, 2009

I spent about four hours with customer support between the phone and instant message support a few days ago. I have a dot mac account, and use the Mail app. It has stopped working. It works on my iphone, it works on webmail, but the Mail app does not. Other computers in the house using dot mac and Mail work fine. I can't get the Mail app to connect to any email accounts, such as gmail either. Phone support moved me up 3 levels of folks to talk to, we spent a couple hours on the phone. Finally, fixed. Like four days later, it's gone again. I don't quite remember what all we ended up doing. iPhoto doesn't work. It will for a while. Then I get an error message and it just hangs. This was months ago, I gave up. Support couldn't solve it, I think I asked here too and never got it figured out. I switched to Picasa and have been happy since it never seems to mess up. During the time when the iPHoto thing was bugging me, I totally wiped out the machine and started fresh.

All the problems returned in no time. So I know I can call support back. But I get the feeling this is all just going to keep happening. The computer was purchased in 2007, running 10.6.2 (imac). It's all updated, etc. If I make a new user account, is it possible IT wont have these errors? Or is this a system wide thing? I know having dot mac will move most of my things along for me, mail, address book, ical, bookmarks, dock items, etc. But what about Picasa? I spent months and months organizing that. I suppose there is no way to just shove it over to another user account as is? I have an external, which is a mess of duplicate files and a lack of organization. But I do have one, and I am going to guess that is how I have to move things? I just lose all of my organization and such? I'm starting to understand why people are moving to all web based apps. I am sick of nothing working. I love the Mail app though. But I don't want to have to "fix" it every couple days.

Software :: Can't Log In To Second User Account

Have just sorted my new iMac running on 10.5.2. I moved files from the main admin account over to a second account with admin privileges using the shared folder. Everything is as it should be BUT...

I can no longer log into the second account. I tried using a plug-in keyboard in case it was the wireless keyboard, restarted etc to no avail. Finally after doing a repair permissions using disk utility, I managed to log in ok.

OS X :: User Account Photo Locations?

Sep 3, 2010

I just bought my mac and I have been googling and thread searching my heart out as best I know how and I can't seem to find and answer to this anywhere.

When you boot your Mac for the first time, OS X gives you the option of taking a picture for your account photo with your webcam. I am looking for the location of that file. I want to make it my profile picture on Facebook.

I am running 10.6.4 on a 6,2 Macbook Pro.

If anyone know the answer to this: Many internets unto you.

OS X :: Any Tips On Migrating To New User Account?

Oct 27, 2010

I recently purchases a ScanSnap scanner, and have been trying to get it to work for a week now. I've been on the phone with Level 1 Fujitsu tech support, and we've determined that whatever is preventing ScanSnap from working is in my user account (it works flawlessly in my wife's user account on the same machine). Getting ScanSnap working is so important to me that I'm considering creating a fresh user account for myself. This is a daunting task because I have so many preferences, special configurations, symlinks, etc. that I've created over the years. I don't think I can just migrate my data from the old user account to the new one, because then I might re-create whatever is causing the problem with the ScanSnap - right? Is there any way to make this process easier, or do I just have to stick it out and do it the hard way?

OS X :: Corrupted User Account - How To Restorte

Dec 19, 2010

I run day-to-day in a non-Admin account. About 18 months ago, the in the menu bar has gone from 100% black to 50% black to 25% black, alternating horizontally. This happens only in my non-Admin account.
A few days ago, I have not been able to properly log off of MobileMe or access the Account info. I get this screen:

Again, it only happens in my day-to-day non Admin account. I can access these fine in my other accounts.
My AppleCare warranty runs out next month. So I am going to take my 2007 24", 2.4GHz, 4GB iMac to the Apple Store to see what's what.

Can they restore my account and still keep all my additions/modifications to my account and still be able to fix it?

OS X :: Refreshing User Account On Each Login?

Dec 22, 2009

I manage about 10 mac's here at work and would like to set up a user account for students. I am hoping that it is possible to setup a user account in such a way that any changes made whilst the student is logged in will be erased and refreshed for the next student.

I know that I can do this with the guest account but I've discovered that this is not suitable for what I need due to me not being able to create login items (specifically network volumes).

I've not done any scripting or anything like that but I was thinking of copying a script that would take a backup of the user's home directory upon login, then upon logout, the current home directory would be deleted and replaced with the backup that was taken earlier.

However, I'm guessing this will turn to poop if the student simply pulls the plug so I guess everything would have to be done upon login..

I'm creating a new user account and moving my personal data over to it, because I want a fresh start with default settings. Both accounts are administrators. Will I have any permissions problems after moving my files? I don't want to find out that I can't access my data on the new account because I don't have the UNIX permissions for it.  

Edit: I don't know if it makes a difference, but I forgot to add that I am moving my files from the old account to an external firewire drive, and then from the drive to the new account. Also, I'm running 10.7.3

Intel Mac :: Deleted Old User Account Now Can't Log In?

Apr 26, 2012

The other day I decided to reinstall OSX from scratch (Lion). So, formatted and reinstalled. Reinstalled all the programs and updates I wanted manually, then used my TM back up to recover my iTunes, documents and pictures. This is where problems began as my new account (Alex Mason) was named exactly the same as the old one present in the TM backup. Migration assistant created a new user account (Alex Mason2). So I have my new set up in one account and my old documents in another! So I got into the USER directory and transfered them between accounts. So far so good. 

Then came the issue of removing the Alex Mason2 account. At first this was straight forward. Go to the user accounts pref pane, select Alex Mason2 in other accounts and press the "-" sign. Done. 

But then, it reappeared! And this time I couldnt get rid. I found this on the support forum here: [URL]...and I followed it to the letter. It describes exactly my situation, that a 2nd user account created because of a name clash when using migration assistant may reappear after initial deletion. 

After doing so, the account Alex Mason appeared in its place in the other accounts bit on the pref pane. This confused me because I was logged in as Alex Mason so how could that also be another account? It wasnt there before, so why now? I exited the pref pane to see if that sorted things out. 

Then I couldnt get back on the user accounts pref pane as OSX said it could not load it!. In the hope of sorting things out again, I restarted the iMac only to be greeted by a grey screen (with the cloth texture) and a user + password dialogue box that were empty. Putting my credentials in resulted in a loading icon in the password box and that was it!! Nothing. Nada. Can't log in. 

I tried repairing permissions (of which some were repaired) and got the same result. I restored via TimeMachine and deleted the second account again. Same again, it disappears but the login name still appears at the log in screen and shortly after, the user re-appears in the user account pref pane again and this time I can't use "-" to delete it. I am wary of trying the above link again. What did I do wrong?! and how can I deleted that second account!
