OS X V10.7 Lion :: Unable To Login To FileVault-protected User Account After Network Migration From 10.6?

Jun 29, 2012

I just used Migration Assistant to move my files from my iMac to my new Macbook Pro. I didn't know about the Filevault problem so when I tried logging in, I got the error message and I am unable to login to my account (the only one on the computer). The support page says to make a root user, but how can I do that when I can't even log in to my account. I dont have a disc copy of Lion I can use to start up with, only a copy of 10.6.

OS X :: FileVault And Home Directories - Unencrypted Info In Cache?

Nov 30, 2009

Just a quick question about FileVault. We all know about Firefox and Safari's caches. Are they stored in the users home directory? If a laptop is stolen and the home directory is encrypted, I want to make sure somebody can't look in the cache and get whatever information is sitting there unencrypted. When a user shuts down and FV is enabled, what (if anything) is not encrypted for that user?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Change User Account Name Or Home Directory Name?

May 15, 2012

I've a user who has been given a company shared MacBook Air. The account name was previously our company name, but I've sucessfully followed the guide [URL] to change this. Thus, the username is now now his firstname & lastname. The home folder is firstnamelastname. However, the old username (our company name) is still showing up as the username for some email recipients and airdrop.I'm guessing the email name might be saved localy on a few of the users contacts since he's been sending a few emails before the user name was updated. Can this be confirmed in any way?

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Change User Account Name Or Home Directory Name?

May 23, 2012

iMac OS X 10.6.8.  previously migrated account -- need to rename the account at the destination. Step 6 in the support page does not occur.  I never get a chance to hit OK to this: 6.  Click OK when "A folder in the Users folder already has the name 'account name'. Would you like to use that folder as the Home folder for this user account?" appears. Note: This will correct the ownership of all files in the Home folder, and avoid permissions issues with the contents. A red flag appears in the field that conflicts (either the short name or the full name). The name(s) cannot be changed! must cancel out.

Software :: Home Vs Users Directories Under Leopard

Jun 24, 2008

I was using until recently a PowerPC running Mac OS X 10.4.11. Since I maintain my directories synchronized all the time between Linux running on another machine and this PowerPC, I created a link: /home -> /Users so that all my scrpits and links (like /home/....) would work properly under both systems. I acquired recently an iMac running under Mac OS 10.5.3 and discovered that there exists already a directory called "/home" which has a rather strange behaviour: not even the user 'root' is allowed to write into it or to modify it in any way, orv to remove it! This breaks many of my scripts.

Of course I can go the opposite way and create under my Linux a link: /Users->/home, but some of my scripts create automatically links like "/home/..." because they expand "~/..." and these would give me troubles on the iMac. I wrote a script which goes through my directory and changes all my links, but it does not seem to be the right way.

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 :: Move Some User Directories To Another Volume?

Jun 7, 2009

So I've made the leap to an SSD boot disk on my mac pro... so I'm now a little bit short on space (120Gb is not enough for my picture and itunes library... also my downloads... the list goes on.

SO...

How can I move the follow DIR's to another volume without screwing up the permissions?

I've created alias's but it seems to stuff up the permissions. I even copied the original data over then created an alias.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Home Directories When Installing On Multiple Partitions

May 11, 2012

I have a macpro setup with two partitions.Originally one partition assigned to Snow Leopard.I log in using a network user (using OSX server) and that user has local Admin rights.I setup a new instance of Snow Leopard on the secondary Partition and logged in using the network user.This had the effect of using the partition 1 Home directory for this user and I can't get the secondary partition to use itself for storing the users home directory.The workaround I have is to log in to Partition 2 snow leopard with a local admin user then temporarily rename the Users folder on partition 1. Next login to partition 2 as the network user, then everything gets created on partition 2 as expected.Finally rename the Partition 1 Users folder back.Now I can log in to either partitoin with the same user and have different local home setups.

Anyone else had this or is there a better procedure for setting up multiple partitions? The same happens with LION. I need to keep a snowleoapard partition with all the setup I currently have, but start a new LION partition.I don't want any cross contamination, hence the requirement for separation.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Network - Can't Login To Network Macs As Registered User

Feb 20, 2012

Have recently done a clean install of Lion onto a Mac Pro that was running Snow Leopard. Upgradede to 10.7.3  The Lion Mac sits on an office network of several macs running Snow Leopard and a Network Shared HDD.  In order to gain quick full access to the other computers we have been using "connect as" then inputting the macs registerred user administrator details, we were able us access to the full Mac and it's currently mounted hard drives. Since installing Lion I can see and fully access the network share which only uses guest access, see the Other macs in finder, add to their drop boxes but not connect as a registerred user to access one of the snow Leopard machines.  I get a pop up. Spinning wheel, and eventually a timeout. Can't even cancel this action as it comes up greyed out. Oddly the other macs can still log into the Lion machine. No joy so far toggling network preferrences and I'm pretty sure it's going to be a setting I have missed, So far have had not joy looking online or playing in seeing why it would now not be able to connect as before.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Decrypt Files Reconstructed From Deleted Drive Saved Using FileVault 2?

So now I have a bunch of reconstructed .dbf files and such, but I don't know how to access them. Any better way to retrieve the data I regretted deleting?

Software :: Recovering Files From Del User Account?

Dec 4, 2008

I was installing an upgrade for one of my applications, and i had to reboot my i mac. After reboot it was stuck on the white apple screen for maybe a half an hour, then on the blue login screen for maybe 5-10 I went to sleep after 5.

When It restored there were no user accounts, and I had to create a new one. All of the programs were available, but I had to authorize and all that kind of stuff.

I just wanted to know if there was a way recover the deleted user files on the mac?

OS X :: Home Network - Shared Video Files Playback Halt

Dec 21, 2009

I have the most recent iMac and Macbook Pro on my home network. I'm sharing files between machine and both are using WiFi through a Linksys Router. I have video files (avi's) on one machine that I'm playing on the other machine. The files play no problem but their is an intermittent halting. I probably wouldn't call it a stutter exactly. It stops playing and the screen halts at a particular frame, and then after a bit it starts playing again. I'm wondering if this is normal behaviour or if I have something setup incorrectly on my network. Also, I'm wondering what the solution to this is other than copying the files from one machine to the other.

OS X :: FileVault - Sensitive Stuff Outside Of The Home Folder?

Dec 14, 2008

As a non-UNIX-geek, and someone unfamiliar with the internals of OS X in general, I'd like to ask ya'll where sensitive data might be stored outside of the Home directory. As you may know, FileVault only encrypts the Home directory, and stores the password as a hash of the account password and the "master" reset password.

So, what sensitive stuff is outside of the Home Directory? Any system logs with potentially damaging info? Any badly written applications (i.e. MS Office 2004) that might keep sensitive data within the Application directory? Any stuff inside of the Library or System folders?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Adding User To Home Directory?

May 23, 2012

On my Mac Mini, I have set up a new user because of problems with the OS. So far, it is working fine. I also have a G5 running OS 10.4.11. There is an account on both machines with the same name. However, the new account on the Mini is a different name. The G5 does not offer the "login as" (at least that I can see, so my access to the new account on the Mini is limited to a dropbox. To simplify: A is the account on both the Mini and the G5, B is the account only on the Mini. I tried extending the permissions on B's home directory, but that did not work. Using get info, I unlocked the file then tried to add A to the list of users. For some reason, nothing happened. 

How can I give user A permission to access user B's home directory on the Mini?

OS X :: Guest Account - Can User Save Files Where They Are Not Deleted

Dec 22, 2008

Is the guest account 100% safe for the most part as long as they aren't running a file with a known virus or something?

Say a guest is making a text file or something. Can they save it where it's not deleted etc?

I don't want them to be able to do that at all. I want to make sure there is nothing they can do or store crap anywhere
