In my keychain access I have the following: com.apple.kerberos.kdc and com.apple.systemdefault both show "This root certificate is not trusted" AND Dashboard Advisory shows "This certificate was signed by an unknown authority." I don't know what the notices mean (beyond the obvious that something is untrusted) nor do I know what to do about it.
I am running my Macbook Pro at work through the LAN. My work has a windows 2003 server. Everything has been fine (well just about) until today, when I couldn't get onto any internet sites. It would let me access all of the local work intranet site, but it wouldn't even let me on google. It worked fine yesterday, and all the Win PCs around me were all still up and running. I tried using a different port but to no avail. Also, I am still trying to access my root drives that are on my profile space at work. e.g R:\Venusgroupswbl etc etc. I want to connect to these through my mac.
On my Mac (10.6.2), I always would do this to access root if I had to: sudo su - or just sudo su
Well, I had to enable the actual root account briefly and then I disabled it. Now, I can't do sudo su or sudo su -, I just get a Sorry message. If I renable root, I can do it. What's also interesting is that both sudo -i and sudo -s work just fine with root disabled. Why can I no longer do "sudo su -" with root disabled?
In Keychain Access, My "Certificates" and "Keys", three out of the four root certificates are marked as: This root certificate is not trusted (in red) com.apple.ubiquity.peer-uuid- times two and one: com.apple.ubiquity.ssl - then five groups of numbers for each. Is this something that should concern me or is it something to do with the problems I am having, Mail - some addresses I use are not sync and have a warning sign! Are these certificates needed to be trusted for mail configuration?
I wanted to put the "Epson Printer Utility 4" application in my dock bar. So in Finder, I selected File > Find, and set it to "Name" "begins with" "Epson Printer".
Mavericks found the "Epson Printer Finder" application in [Root] / Applications / Epson Software, but it did not find "Epson Printer Utility 4" in [Root] / Library / Printers / EPSON / InkjetPrinter2 / Utility / UT4. As a test, I also tried File > Find for the "World Clock" widget in [Root] / Library / Widgets - also not found.
Both files are fully visible to me, and I have have Admin privileges. I set my Finder preferences to "Search This Mac" when performing a search. I can't find any other preference to have Mavericks really, truly search ALL of This Mac, including the root directory folders.

We are running OSX mavericks 10.9.4 which connects a network windows share on login.¬†
I have see the share and navigate through its files fine however, if I try drag a file to the root of the share the green plus does not appear and I am unable to copy it. I am however, able to copy it to a sub folder within the same view.¬†
Permissions are definitely correct and have the same permissions as the sub folders previously mentioned. If I go into a sub folder and back to the root, I am then able to copy the file as intended. It is based in an AD environment so these are all new users viewing the share from the MAC for the very first time.¬†
Ok, this may sound stupid, so here goes. I have always worked for companies that had all of our files on a server. Because of this server I was able to work from home on many occasions. I now have my own design company and want to set up a server in my home that I can access remotely from my office. I don't have the faintest idea where to start. I have purchased the mac mini server (I want a dedicated computer for the server) but what's next? I have a domain name, web hosting and dedicated IP. What else do I need to get to set this up? I am pretty good with computers, I just don't have a clue what I need to make this happen.
I have a simple automator sequence that suddenly stopped working for no apparent reason.¬† Copy Finder Items has started returning an error "the file xxx couldn't be saved to the folder yyy"¬† Happens for different files and folders. Can't see anythng that's changed.¬†

We had everything working perfectly with an earlier version of Lion Server. The update to 10.7.3, or 4, seems to have opened access to all files for all users. Much to our surprise, this wide-open access started without warning.¬†¬†
- We have an external drive that contains all of the company's archives¬†
- We had set access for one employee to get to the files he needs, and different access for another employee. Neither saw sharepoints outside of their access settings.¬†
After an update, each employee can see and log in to all sharepoints. There doesn't seem to be a way to limit access for each employee now. I can set 'read' access for one employee, but it doesn't stop the other employee from accessing that sharepoint/folder.¬†
I managed to successfully hide the file: cat picture.jpg hidden.rtf.zip > picture2.jpg
results in a picture (picture2.jpg) that is the size of the sum of picture.jpg and hidden.rtf.zip. I presume this means that I am successfully putting hidden into the picture.I can open picture2.jpg, but I can't figure out a way to access the hidden zip.
I copied some file from one external drive to another and the folders doesn't show an arrow which I could click to show the contents of the folder. When I do get info it doesn't show the size of the folder but the hard drive that I copied from does. How do you make it show the arrow and size?
Why does Mac OX 10.6.8 keep making copies of a file anytime I download, copy, or move a file? It will copy, dowload or move the file, then begin making copies until I reboot. This makes it impossible to deal wit hfiles unless I want to spend a lot of time rebooting after every time, then deleting all the redundant copies.
I'm currently working on migrating some machines from Snow Leopard to Lion, and I have a bunch of postimaging scripts that are fired on first boot. The first script automatically mounts an SMB share to copy the rest of the postimaging scripts and run them. However it would seem that it is no longer possible to mount an SMB share as root (root as in running sudo -i as an admin account to get to a root shell, or running the command prefixed with sudo) as it fails with "mount_smbfs: server rejected the connection: Authentication error". As far as I can tell, the request is not actually making it to the SMB server, as there is no log entries indicating a failure for this particular user to logon.

I am trying to use the Apple-approved method of changing a user account short name. This involves enabling the Root User, logging in as root, and then perform a few simple steps. I've done this many times before successfully on many different Macs. However on this particular MacBook Air, while I can enable root and enter the appropriate password via the "Other" choice at the 10.7 login screen, logging in as root fails. Here's what happens:
I was having a lot of problems with my new (Christmas 11) MPB. It† was very sluggish and occasionally would freeze.† I took it to my Apple Store and the Genius said I was running all my apps in root and had too many files on the desktop.They should be under a user.† Any files on the desktop are refreshed frequently, such as graphics (CAD, pictures, etc.) and that was what was killing performance. She then proceded to move my files/apps to my user profile.†
Since I am the only user, I never paid any attention to where the files were.I would like to verify the information above and do the same process on two other computers, but I didn't catch enough of what she did to do it solo.

I recently upgraded to Lion and now I see some strange test.txt documents on the lowest level of my hard drive. They are filled with some xml and soap stuff. Last one is made nearly a year ago. What frightens me is that it contains passwords. The documents are found by spotlight so a password search on my mac will come up with those documents.Were are they coming from?Can I safely remove them?¬†an example:
Maybe I am doing something wrong here, but each time I want to create a subfolder inside another folder the newly created folder is created at the root of the main banch and then I either to drag and drop it into place or copy and paste it in.†Is there a way to create a folder exactly where I want it?
I have a number of iTunes libraries, and for the "supplementary" ones, I set the preferences so that iTunes does not copy the media to the Library, instead it just references it.Usually the original media is on a disk other than the one the Library is located on.However I have noticed that when I do this, and add media to the Library, it changes the modification date of all the original media files. This is very impolite and improper behaviour.† Why does iTunes change the modification date?† For a start, all my backups are made out of sync, because they now think these files have been changed when they haven't.Is there any way to stop this and make iTunes play nice?I haven't tried making the files "read only" but frankly one should not need to do that to avoid the problem (and maybe iTunes would spit the dummy with read only files?).
