need to re-create admin
by Joseph Bradley on Mar 14, 2008 at 5:08:07 pm
I set up a MacPro and then cloned it for other machines. Then I deleted the main admin because of the name I gave it, crated a new user with admin privileges. But, the new account cannot do what the original admin could. I tried to change the GID and the UID to 501 in the netinfo manager the way I used to on the G5's but it didn't work.
Can anyone tell me how to re-create the original admin so I can get rid of all the permission issues? I already repaired permissions so that isn't it. I even went into the terminal and gave every user all rights to everything and I still have the same problem.
What I can't do is to access some internal programs like admin assistant and I can't copy from one disk to another, it gives me permission errors and might copy some of the files or a folder but not the files. The original cpu has none of these problems.
