Software :: Mounting Server On Leopard - Doesn't Show Up On Desktop

May 30, 2008

One wired thing I realize when using Leopard is that whenever I mount or connect a drive, it does not show up on the desktop. But in facts that the drive is connected and only shows at the side bar under the Shared panel.

OS X Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Mounting RAM Disks As 'notremovable'

May 12, 2012

I am replacing my G5 (10.5) Xserve with a late 2008 Xserve (10.6). This server is primarily a web server, with a small amount of mail traffic.I keep my 'webfolder' on a RAM disk. All of my pages are dymanic php/mysql, so they can't be cached. But reading from RAM is so fast, you'd never know it.This is the command I used in 10.5 to create a 1 GB RAM disk at boot: [code]/usr/sbin/diskutil erasevolume HFS+ "web-ram" `/usr/bin/hdiutil attach -notremovable -nomount ram://2200000`[/code]Not the "notremovable", that flag makes the system treat the mounted disk image (or in this case, the RAM disk), like a real physical disk, and not a mounted disk image. When you use this flag, the ram disk will actually show up with a regular hard drive icon. Without this flag, it shows up as a white disk image.But this flag doesn't work in 10.6. According to the man page, it's still there. But when I use it, I get permissions errors. I am using it with sudo (from the command line, or as root via lanuchdeamons). As I look closer at my errors, It appears that what might be happening is that the diskutil command is being run as root, but the hdiutil command inside of it, is not.

Anyway this is about more than just the icon. When the ram disk is mounted as a real disk, its harder to eject, which is good because it's my web folder and I don't want it going anywhere. AND when its mounted that way, I can use time machine to back it up. Which works out to be a great system for that.

Xserve, Mac OS X (10.6.8), 8 x 3.0 GHz, 8 GB RAM, Early 2008

OS X :: USB Flash Drive Doesn't Show Up On Desktop ...

Jul 25, 2010

I just got a new flash drive and it worked fine on my iMac yesterday, and now suddenly it no longer appears on the Desktop or anywhere else on the computer that I can find. But when I pulled it out of the USB drive, it said the device was not removed properly, so it must have recognized something was connected.

Power Mac G5 :: LaCie 500Gb USB Drive Doesn't Show On Desktop - How To Fix It

Nov 13, 2007

Since I tried to install Leopard and uninstalled it again as it has to many bugs (at least with my configuration) my external LaCie 500 Gb USB drive for back-up doesn't show on the desktop anymore. In disk repair the drive appears and repair shows "no problems". On an other internal disk I still have Leopard installed, and if I boot my G5 under Leopard the disk is visible and works fine.

Final Cut Pro X :: 10.0.9 import Window Doesn't Show Folders On Desktop

Jun 25, 2014

I have a number of folders on my desktop that contain movie files, jpeg files, you name it. When I try to import from the desktop, the import media window only shows the files and not the folders they are in! I have included a screen shot of what my window looks like when I select the desktop to import media. Again, I have a number of folders that don't show up, only the files in them. This is maddening when trying to import files! I know i can move the files to my hard drive but i am used to desktop work flow.

Software :: Desktop Doesn't Show Any Icons - How To Get Back Icons

Sep 29, 2008

i am a tad stumped by this issue i'm having right now with my new imac. i noticed one day that none of my desktop aliases show any longer. in fact if i go to the desktop folder through finder my files and such show in there however none of my aliases nor those files show on the actual desktop. another thing i've noticed is that whenever i now try to drag and drop anything to the desktop whether it be a URL from safari or an alias i made in finder the dragged item simply just drags itself back to where i pulled it from.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Digital Camera Doesn't Show Up In Finder?

Apr 10, 2012

why does my digial camera not show up in Finder? (camera is Nikon D7000) 

there are situtions when you don't want to download photos, sometimes I'm just doing tests, and want to see photos in the camera instead of downloading them first.. ( at any rate this should be my choice to make, not Apple's....;-)

and: I want to see the camera in the FINDER (not iPhoto or any other program where you have to "import" the photos.. I don't like those programs and never use them..) 

it doesn't even show up in Adobe Bridge, for pete's sake.. this is ABSURD..

but on the pc you see it right away in Windows Explorer... no reason whatsoever why the mac shouldn't do this also...

Applications :: Remote Desktop Server Equiv For OSX Snow Leopard?

Dec 15, 2010

Just had my 3 yrs old Mac Mini decomission and set aside in the living hall as a media server recently. While I use the mini primary to watch movies, in which it does great with XBMC, I would like to have the ability to Remote Login (GUI) into the mini WHILE my wife is watching her fav movie CONCURRENTLY without any disturbance. I guess this a old topic i'm revisiting here. I've been googling around and searching this forum, but yet till now, the closest solution I've came to is having OSXvnc (Vine Server) running along with fast using switching, plus some VNC client etc. The worst part of this approach is, each remote user have to log into the physical machine for fast user switching. This is just soooo dodgy as compare to the windoze variant. I'm posting to see, if anyone have a better solution that:

1. each remote user dun have to physically login first
2. I can have concurrent session running (either remote, or local-wife watching movie)

Does the Mac OSX SL Server have something to offer to this problem? And also, I've discovered that The Apple Remote Desktop is more for a network administrator sort of app, totally not related to allowing multiple concurent remote GUI Sessions.

Feb 23, 2008

Been trying to create a CD image mounted on my Desktop, as to load the program it needs to know that the CD is in the optical drive of the MacBook Air. But the program doesn't actually use the CD, its just verifying that I own a copy. Is there anyway I could start the program without actually having the CD in my drive? Anyway of making the Computer think that the CD is actually present, such as mounting the CD image on the Desktop?

i just posted this but i don't think in the right place as i have been assigned a ticket number and rec'd an email telling me my ip is logged..i hope they don't charge for advice! I'm a desperate woman with a small wallet at the moment. i have a ibook g3 running osx 10.4.2 toast titanium 6 and suddenly she is indicating there is no disc in the drive when i go to use toast and i realize it is not appearing on the desktop nor elsewhere just in ATA. it is neither reading nor writing from the disk drive. the optical drive isn't seeing it. i have tried rebooting and different disks but it doesn't respond. i am not a seasoned veteran here, I'm a layman. I do know when i look under ABOUT THIS MAC: It lists the following:

Revision: 1.3g
Detachable Drive: No
Protocol: ATAPI
Unit Number: 1

Mac OS X Lion Server :: AD LDAP Connects To Lion Server But Does Not Show Users / Groups

Feb 19, 2012

I have a server in our DMZ that connects to Active Directory LDAP server (non-ssl over 389) but no objects actually show up in the directory editor. I get a green light in my Network Account Server, but queries against LDAP return no results. My end goal is to be able to dictate to Profile Manager what LDAP groups are allowed to enroll devices. I tested on our internal network on a test server and get the same results. Anyone have any luck connecting a Lion Server to LDAP and actually being able to view and utilize users and groups?

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Difference Between Server And Desktop?

Apr 24, 2012

I'm in need of the Profile Manager from Lion Server for administering iPads in our environment.I understand that to do this really well within the environment, I'll need to be able to have a static IP and I will be able to arrange that. My question is more about what I may lose on my macbook if I go ahead and bump the OS to Lion Server instead of Desktop. The biggies on my machine for usage are, of course, iTunes, Parallels, logmein, evernote, MS Office, Garage Band, Logic, iMovie, etc. 

What negative impacts am I in for if I move to server on this machine? Alternately, is there any way I can make a true, cheap OTA Profile Manager (a la MDM) on a Lion Desktop or even a windows desktop or server? I can't be spending a lot on this, but I could certainly afford Lion Server (but not a dedicated new machine for it).

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Upgrade The X (desktop) To Server?

Apr 29, 2012

I have recently purchased a Mac Mini with Lion X. I also have a couple of MBPs. I'd like to have the Mac Mini act as the place where all the Time Machine backups go (I have a 1 TB external disk hooked up to the Mac Mini). Apparently, I must have Lion x *Server* running on the Mac Mini for it to become available as a Time Machine destination for the MBPs.  How can I upgrade my Mac Mini from Lion X to Lion X Server?

OS X :: Mounting Devices On Snow Leopard 10.6?

Dec 20, 2009

I'm new in Mac, coming from UNIX/Linux systems, my problem is managing devices in Snowleopard OS.
Recently I bought the HP ScanJet G4050. With a lot of difficulties I installed the software, because the manufacturer provided was useless, but finally I was able to get scans into adobe reader and also into the other software.

At work we got an electric break, and my MBP continued working but the scanjet didn't. So after this failure when I'm trying to scan something, the system reports "unable to start (scaner was not found)", nevertheless the scaner works in another equipment (in a Windows XP mini laptop, for example)

I'm looking for the way to do manual mount of the device, in similar way we do this in Unix/linux:
" #>mount /device/somedevice /pathdirectory -options "

But this -for now- didn't work.

OS X Server :: Migration From Panther Server To Leopard Server?

Apr 6, 2009

I'm faced with the daunting task of migrating from Panther Server to Leopard Server. The present server is the Primary DNS serving several web sites (some of which is running MySQL databases). I have the luxury that we've bought 2 new Xserves last year, but due to time constraints, I haven't time until now to seriously consider the steps to this daunting task. We're also currently using a linux box for the firewall (it does no routing, just iptables rules). I want to migrate away from this also and utilize either Apple's firewall or a router. Is there anything out there on the web that will help me in this process? I'm terrified of messing up the production environment, especially since the Xserve is our DNS.
