In the past when we wanted to offload the /Users folder from the
internal disk we simply created a symbolic link for /Users that pointed
to /Volumes/External_Drive_Name/Users. The Mac in question is a server
for two computer labs, hosting 60 Macs wit...
Working with a teacher right now who administers a Mac lab at their high
school. Currently in a panic because the students home folders appear to
be gone. Hoping someone can give us a nod in the right direction on
this. The setup pre-Catalina:- Mac O...
We're setting up an iPad to act as a check in kiosk. I've already
restricted to a single app, turned off the buttons, etc and it works
beautifully. The last request from the higher ups is to find a way to
either dim or sleep the display outside of bu...
Has anyone else run into the result "Illegal Instruction: 4" when
attempting to grant secure tokens? I know this was working last week
because I tested it successfully several times before working it into

command to one of our Macs with a simple 000000 PIN. Locked as expected,

to filter out the Apple apps, modified script below: #!/bin/bash ## Get
the logged in user's username loggedI...
Ok, the main panic is over. We realized that a year or two ago the
/Users folder was offloaded to an external drive and a symlink was setup
to point /Users to /Volumes/Users. But, Catalina doesn't like this. The
Users volume refused to mount on the s...
@HNTIT Still none the wiser as to what these 2 numbers mean, all I know
is right now they are a 0 and a 4, and if I approve the extensions
through thr user interface they both change to a 1, and then the prompts
go away. The third field (first number...
It sounds like they don't have SecureTokens tied to their accounts. You
can check with the sysadminctl command. sysadminctl interactive
-secureTokenStatus TheirUsername That will prompt you for your password,
after you authenticate it will return som...
THANK YOU! This was driving me crazy yesterday. Couldn't figure out why
all of a sudden some of my test boxes were failing to recon. "An unknown
error occurred" Totally explains why a couple of them recon without
issue now, they're the same ones that...
