OS X V10.7 Lion :: Mini Keeps Adding A Number To Its Name
May 12, 2012
I have a new Mac Mini with Lion installed.
Laptop - Mac Book Pro w/ Lion, also uses network - not having any issues
iPad 1, using network, no issues.
Last week it suddenly started incrementing the computer name on the network: myName Mini (2), MyName Mini (3),...This causes issues with banking software because it assumes it is a new computer each time and makes me register the new computer each time.
I'm in IT at a shop that is 98% Mac based.Â At this point in time, we would like to use Lion Server to provide Time Machine backups and software updates to our users.Â The environment is as follows:Â We are all using laptops, connecting to our network and the internet using wireless only.Â The mini has an ethernet cable attached and wireless will not be enabled for it.Â All Time Machine backups and software updates will be done wirelessly.Â The backups will be mostly text files, although in some instances there will be large amounts of said files.Â Of course I will limit and exclude certain folders and file types from backup and I would like to have the user do their first backup via firewire/thunderbolt so the largest amount of data will not be pushed over the air.Â I'm currently running tests with a few users doing just Time Machine backups to the Mini and all is going well, but I'm curious as to how many people I will be able to place on one Mini before it becomes too much.Â We have about 70 users now and could be close to 100 by the end of the year.Â We are a company that will continue to grow too.Â Anyone have thoughts or experience with a large user base doing backups to a Mini like this?Â How many users could I fit on each Mini? Would I be better off just going for the Mac Pro?
I've created a huge PDF file that I need to add page numbers to. The pages are numbered separately because the entire pdf file is an aggregation of several page numbering documents. But, I need a Master Page number that I can use to create a table of contents for the big PDF file. Anyone have any ideas that are not going to cost me a fortune? I've found several free programs that do that for Windows XP, but I need to be able to do this in OS X (Leopard) without spending a bunch of cash for software I don't need. like a full version of Adobe. I've created the PDF file using Preview by dropping in the pages I need.
My MacMini suddenly started freezing up EVERY TIME I tried to use the number keypad. I figured it must be the keyboard so bought a new one. It is doing the same thing - if I inadvertantly hit a key on the number keypad it freezes and I have to reboot the computer for anythink to work.What's happening and what can I do?
I have this 1.42GHz G4 Mac Mini that my mother uses for very basic stuff but still gets bogged down by skype videoconferencing or by having more than a couple of tabs open on the browser. I was thinking of adding some RAM to its original 512MB (DDR 3200 on 1 module).
I checked prices on Ebuyer and 1GB of DDR3200 SODIMM will set me back ï¿½26 while a DDR4200 module of the same capacity will cost ï¿½13. I was wondering if it would be OK to mix the 2 memory types and get 1.5GB, or if I should replace the original RAM completely.
I can't deposit a new midi into my library.Â I try following the instructions but the song doesn't appear on the main Music library list, and I can't drop in to the Playlist file, where I need to have it as an mp3, so I can make a new CD of this song list.Â Â
I just had my iMac mini cleaned up and upgraded to Mac OS X 10.7.4 and things are not working the way they were.Â Before this, I was able just to drag the midi into the main Music library list, turn it into an mp3, then drag a copy into the Playlist.Â
Info: Mac mini, Mac OS X (10.7.4), just upgraded; things don't work
Only the number keys on my keyboard are malfunctioning besides the number 0.Â For example when I press 1 it appears as q1.Â When I press 2 it appears as w2.Â Â
I am not sure if I accidentally pressed something on my keyboard that has changed the functioning of my number keys. I've tried fidgeting with the keyboard settings in System Preferences and holding down the f6 key but nothing has worked.Â
My FCP 7 keeps on asking me about my serial number. I've thrown that box a long time ago. How can I retrieve the serial number? Also, I don't want to move on to FCP x. Such a horrible interface and system. I want my FCP 7 back. Is there a place where I can download it again. There doesn't seem to be a download software or software available in the market anymore for FCP 7.
From; system notice - online maintenance. i keep getting calls on Skype saying that my system is not secure and i need to go to some website help!!! does Apple call on skype to update my macbook air? should i worry that my system is not secured?Â
I cannot seem to have the number of unread messages in my mailbox appear to the right of the inbox label. It used to be there, and I have another account set up in Mail and the number appears next to it when there is an unread message. It's just this one account.Here is a picture of what it is like, even though there is an unread message in the mailbox.I want the number of unread messages to be next to Gmail on the right.Also, the number of unread messages for the Gmail account do not appear on the Dock icon.Both of these functions work with my other account that is set up in Mail, and that account is a Gmail as well.
I am using Chronicle 4.2.2 which I purchased from the App Store.When using Snow Leopard on my MacBook Pro everything was fine. Now that I have upgraded to Lion whenever I use Chronicle to log a bill payment and attempt to attach a .pdf of my payment receipt, the program freezes.
Info: MacBook Pro (15-inch Mid 2010), Mac OS X (10.7.3)
Is there any software application that is available that will allow me to add metadata to mp4 files? For images I use Adobe Bridge, however it will not embed metadata into mp4 files.I am looking to also add keywords.
Earlier today I received 2 iMessages from another iPhone 4 user, I only realised this now, when I checked my iPhone. He sent them to my mobile number not my email address.Â They never showed up on my Mac, (messages beta), are only iMessages sent to email addresses received on mac?
I have a folder with about 600 funny photos that I randomly saved. And you know how pictures you save from sites have random long numbers as names? Well here is what I want: I want to know if there is a way to automatically number all the photos starting from 1. Any way to do it that is already in Mac OS X Lion 10.7.3 or recommend some software.
Is there a way to see the number of items in a folder shown in finder?
Seems to me that in earlier versions, if you had a folder with 100 items (e.g., photos) in a folder in a finder window, when you clicked on the folder, something like "100 Items" would appear at the bottom of the finder window. I don't see this now in Lion.
