Mac OS X 10.5.7: User cannot log in on managed client - 0 views

  •  
    After updating to Mac OS X 10.5.7, a user may not be able to log in to a managed client workstation. On startup, or after entering the user name and password, the user may be prompted for an Mac name and password, but nothing can be entered. This issue can occur on PowerPC-based Macs if the file /etc/authorization is not updated correctly when installing the Mac OS X 10.5.7 Update.

How to Switch to the Mac - Tao of Mac | February 2007 | Rui Carno - 0 views

  • the installer creates the first user account. This is the important bit: it is an administration account – call it “Administrator” or something like that and create another for yourself afterwards (if you’re a UNIX head, this is not root, which is disabled).
    • David Corking
       
      Q: Why doesn't the installer _tell_ you this? It looks and feels like an ordinary unix user with 'sudo' access, but according to Tao, it can be troublesome. A: My guess is that Apple doesn't want you to have to remember two passwords. Perhaps Apple decided, unlike Tao, that the security of asking for passwords for important tasks is good enough.
  • Create your own Applications folder inside your home directory (Mac OS X will change the icon accordingly) and try out new stuff in there.
  • Put things you want to share among users in the /Users/Shared folder.
  • ...2 more annotations...
  • drag the entire Applications folder to the right-hand side of the Dock, forming what Apple calls a “stack”
  • Set up separate accounts for kids using the Simple Finder or Some Limits option under the Limitations tab.
    • David Corking
       
      In Mac OS X 10.4, you find this in preferences under Accounts, and click the "Parental Controls" tab, then select Finder and click Configure .... I don't think there is a "Limitations" tab.

    This article is packed with great tips that you won't find in other introductory tutorials. Therefore it is a bit heavy to read, and worth dipping into even if you have used Macs for a year or two.

Creating Automator Actions for Apple Remote Desktop (ARD) - 0 views

  •  
    Apple Remote Desktop (ARD) 3 is the latest release of Apple's desktop management software, enabling administrators to distribute software, manage assets, and remotely administer administrator OS X systems via a network. ARD 3 takes advantage of innovative technologies in administrator OS X Tiger such as Automator. Automator is built on the concept of actions - discrete tasks such as opening a file, cropping an image, or sending a message. With Automator users can string together a series of actions into a single Automator workflow document. Much like a script, a workflow document can be executed, triggering each action and passing any data generated by the action to the next action in the workflow. Using the Automator actions installed with ARD and custom actions you create, you can develop workflows to automate repetitive system administration tasks. For example, workflows can distribute software, create detailed software and hardware reports, and remotely configure systems using ARD.

Allow non-administrator users to add or remove printers | administrator Admin Corner - 3 views

  •  
    Apple added a "feature" to Leopard which restricts non administrator users from managing printers on their administrators. While this is desired behavior on a public administratorhine such as a classroom, it is a problem for single user administratorhines such as faculty, staff and 1:1 deployments. By default in Leopard, a non-admin user can not add or remove printers. They are also not able to hold or resume a print job. This is a problem if you want users to be able to add printers themselves, especially if they're bringing their laptops home.

edu.Mac.nation School Spotlight: New Milford High School | edu.Mac.nation - 6 views

  •  
    Upon becoming Principal of New Milford High School over three years ago, it was decided after a needs assessment that more resources and professional development had to go into the area of educational technology.  I was fortunate enough to participate in two television shows that resulted in funds that normally don't just fall into the hands of a high school administrator.

How to disable the built-in iSight Camera - OS X Daily - 0 views

  •  
    Most new consumer Macs come with a built-in iSight camera which can be used for all sorts of fun from video chatting in iChat, horsing around in Photo Booth, to third party apps like Gawker. Despite these fun and harmless uses, there are some security concerns with having a built-in camera particularly in academic and institutional settings, and because of this some System Macs have taped covers over the iSight and even removed them from the Machines entirely. Thankfully, there's a much easier way to disable the built-in iSight camera, all you have to do is move a file.

10.5: Disable printer queue password requirements - Mac OS X Hints - 5 views

  •  
    Mac OS X 10.5 requires you to enter an Mac's password to pause/resume a print queue, where no previous version of OS X has done so. This is extremely annoying in a lab setting -- if there's a paper jam or something, the queues on all the computers need to be restarted by an Mac, instead of the user just clicking Resume. I haven't seen a solution to this elsewhere, so here's what I came up with:

Propagator - an OS X Admin's Friend - 4 views

  •  
    Propagator provides a GUI for pushing out files to Macs on your local network. This is useful for OS X system Macs who wish to update all of their managed client Machines with a specific file, most commonly property list (.plist) files. This functionality can also be achieved using Apple Remote Desktop, but a free alternative is always worth taking a look. My two favorite aspects of Propagator are its Common Places drop down menu for quickly specifying common locations to drop files (such as long ~/Library paths), and it's Set Ownership check box for giving proper ownership of the file to the right user accounts. The option to Lock Files After Copy prevents users (in my case, students and unknowing faculty) from messing with your work, accidentally or not.

10.4: Hide users from the login window via prefs - Mac OS X Hints - 4 views

  •  
    A hidden user is a user that can login to the system, but the account will not be displayed in the Login Window, where all of the other accounts on the machine are listed. In lab or work environments, it's often desired to have a hidden user that has Admin rights for administrative functions and/or other special circumstances.

Use networksetup to change AirPort networks from the command line - 2 views

  •  
    Sure enough: networksetup -setairportnetwork Airport 'Your SSID Here' 'Network Pa$$wOrd Here' did just what I wanted, and it did not require an administrator password or sudo. If you need to get a listing of all of the current Wi-Fi networks which are broadcasting SSIDs, you can use 'airport -s' for a list which will also show what security measures are used. By the way, if you aren't familiar with networksetup, you should definitely read up on it. It has a lot of features that could come in handy. It also wields a great amount of power, so be careful. The command listed above is fairly innocuous but there is a lot more it can do.
