OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Home Folder With Active Directory?

May 15, 2012

Our users logon to our 2008 Windows Domain and their windows home folder comes up as a folder called 'Work' on the mac taskbar. This is fine.When they open Microsoft Word e.g. and do a save you can't see this  'Work' folder in the Finder tree. Do I have to set up some kind of script - I just want a shortcut to this 'Work' home folder in Finder....how can you put one there automatically?  Is there any easy way so if they save to their mac 'Documents' folder it just get's re-routed to their  'Work' folder?

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 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?

Mac OS X Lion Server :: How To Stop Sharing Home Directory

May 23, 2012

I've got a new Mac Mini Server that I'm using to set up file sharing for the first time. I've enabled OpenDirectory and verified that the users I'm creating are being created in (they show up in the Server app and Workgroup Manager app, but not in System Preferences | Users). 

File sharing seems to be working fine, but I don't like the fact that each user has access to their home folder share when they connect to the server using a mac elsewhere on the network. I prefer only the shares I explicitly set up to be available. 

Thus, a couple questionsWhy is there a home folder created on the server at all? Do I really need a /users/johndoe folder for each and every account in OD?How can I configure sharing such that I won't see the home folder when I connect from another mac on the network? I don't want to leave little "cubby holes" for my users to stuff files into

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Home Directory Shows Question Mark In Dock

Mar 7, 2012

So this is my first time really implementing Macs in an Active Directory environment and everything is going fairly well, except when it comes to the Home directory. All of my users are running 10.7, and with the latest patch, they can all log into the Domain without any issue. The problem is that their Home directory in the dock is displayed as a question mark. I'm guessing I'm missing something in the configuration, but everything looks right. Anyone have the 411 about how to set up a Mac user to map a Home directory to a network share on a Wiindows 2008 AD network?

OS X Mountain Lion :: How To Create Application Folder In Home Folder

Aug 29, 2014

I'm using MacBook Pro Early 2011 model with Mountain Lion (10.8.5).

I recently noticed that there was an application folder in my home folder (the folder with your username), but that application folder had been empty. I remember I used to be able to access to my applications from that folder, but not anymore. 

Since the folder was empty, I deleted it before doing further research. 

After deleting the empty application folder from the home folder, I looked up and some said the application folder in the home folder and the application folder in Macintosh HD are two different folders. I don't know what it means, but I would like to have an application folder with applications in my home folder. Is this possible? or should I just make an Alias folder and put it in my home folder?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Access The Library Folder In The Home Folder?

Jun 9, 2012

It appears that the Library folder that is in the Home Folder (e.g./Users/Home/Liberary)has been made invisible in OS 10.7.x. However I have seen it because after converting samples Logic showed me the folder and its contents. I would very much like to move the samples from their present location in this folder on the startup disk to the EXS 24 samples folder  on the external RAID array that is dedicated to this purpose - - but I don't know how to make the Library folder visible.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Lost The Entire Library Folder From User Directory After Update?

Feb 4, 2012

With the update to OS-X 10.7.3 did anyone lose the entire Library folder from their user directory? I didn't notice until I started working on the installation of an application (beta version) and found the my entire ~/Library/ folder gone, all 57+ GBytes of it. I'm restoring it from Time Machine two days ago, but I wonder what happened with the update to completely remove it.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Can Rename The Home Folder

Mar 14, 2012

I recently had my 15" MacBook Pro serviced because of a hard drive failure. It required that the operating system (OSX 10.7.3) be reinstalled. The reinstall was handled by the Best Buy Geek Squad store where I originally purchased the Mac. They named my home folder using only my first name in lower case letters. I would prefer my full name like my previous install.  DoI understand correctly that it is NOT possible to rename this folder? Would I have to reinstall Lion and wipe all the data to do this? Or is there a simple way to rename the folder.

OS X :: Unable To Log In - Home Directory On Another Partition?

May 26, 2009

My MBPs HDD died, so I bought a new one and partitioned it into two volumes.

One for the OS, the other for my home directory.

It ran fine the last few weeks, only once (or maybe twice) I was unable to login, but entering the password again seemed to help.

I restarted today, and again, I can't login.

I ran Single User Mode and /sbin/fsck -fy , also started up in Verbose Mode and also used Target Disk Mode and repaired both volumes with my iBook's Disk Utility.

OS X :: Home Directory In Different / Separate Partition

Apr 29, 2010

I have seen that is rare in the Mac community to define a secondary partition on disk to hold the Home Directory leaving a partition for the operating system only. I would like to know your opinion on the matter of having a partition for the Home Directory as in my case it brought many benefits to me like every time you need to try a new installation of Mac OS from scratch, you must format the partition, which involves obtaining a prior backup of the entire contents of the Home Directory for later recall. This is not necessary if the Home Directory has its own partition. So do the Settings are also conserved. What do you think about it?, Do any of you use a separate partition for your Home Directory?

Mac Pro :: Migrating To SSD And Moving Home Directory

Apr 29, 2010

Currently I have my OS and home directory on the same drive (lets call it Primary). I want to transfer the OS and applications to an SSD and leave my home directory on Primary. I Googled moving your home directory and understand how this is done. I'd like some comments on the procedure I have thought of which involves Primary, SDD and primary external backup (I have a secondary backup).

1. Install 80 GB Intel X25-M SSD and format as appropriate
2. Clone Primary to on-site external backup drive using superduper & change boot drive to external backup
3. Boot from external backup
4. Delete most of my user content from external backup until external backup only uses about 60 GB
5. Clone contents of external backup to SSD and then change boot drive to SSD
6. Boot from SSD
7. Move home directory from SSD to Primary
8. Boot from SSD to confirm home directory changed
9. Delete home directory from SSD
10. Delete OS and application files from Primary so only user content is left
11. Create new backups for SSD and Primary

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Broken Home Folder - How To Log Back In

Jun 1, 2012

I'm having serious issue on my MacPro 10.7.4, as I can't log in any more. My setup: System 10.7.4 on MacPro SSD (internal SSD)Data on my software RAID0 on 2 internal HD. Unfortunately I had the bad idea to move my home folder on the RAID0 cluster. One of the 2 hard drives just died, making impossible to reach any data on this side! So now, I just get an error trying to log back, as I guess the system can't find my home folder.

I just set up a second partition on my SSD, installed lion again and boot from here. So I can have access to the original SSD file system.I'd like to modify some files to update the path to a new home folder. (not on the RAID obviously but still on SSD). Could be done by terminal / command line. I used to know how to do that on linux by modify /etc/password, but I can't find the same files on OSX.How to modify / update the system user path, so I could boot again from by previous partition?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Can't Find "Library" Folder In Home Folder

The only way to get to it is to open Xcode 4, make a Cocoa application, build it, then right-click the target, then click "Show in finder. This is what the library folder looks like after I do that:

I can still click the folder and it will show me its contents, but once I leave the home folder, the folder dissappears, and I can't find it:

OS X :: Home Sync And Active Directory Oddity

Apr 8, 2010

We have approx 20 systems, laptops and desktops - running 10.4.11 and 10.5.8 - that are syncing a local home directory with the user's specified home folder in their AD profile. As a standard, we are syncing their desktop and documents folders. This all seems to be working well, except for the fact that everything in the documents folder syncs, except for their Microsoft User Data info. We have gone so far as to blow out everything in the back up folder and start fresh, but still no Microsoft User Data folder. We have our users on Office 08.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Possible To Copy A User's Home Folder On Machine

Mar 20, 2012

I want to sync my MacBook Pro w/ my iMac (both running Lion).I want to be able to come home from a business trip and have all of the new / edited info on my MacBook (new photos (organized & edited), changes to various folders in "documents", random files/folders added to desktop, changes made in iTunes, etc) show up on my iMac, which I work off of while at home. And of course the reverse - sync the changes on my iMac to my MacBook before I travel again.Wouldn't it be possible to copy a User's Home Folder on Machine 1 to an external drive, and then use that to replace / update the Home Folder on Machine 2?Or possibly do a complete Disc Clone (i.e. Super Duper) of Machine 1, and then use that to "restore" Machine 2? What are the pros and cons?And any better solutions? I realize that my proposals may be over simplified, but also that my goal must be a common one.
