Apple's early computers ran on a variety of operating systems, including a Pascal version and one based on CP/M, before releasing its ProDOS with the advent of its 16-bit computer. With the release of the Lisa, which had its own OS, Apple and computing entered the graphical age; it was followed by the Macintosh, which offered a series of "System" operating systems. Other Mac operating systems included PowerPC until Apple acquired NeXT and folded it into the Mac OS. Current operating systems for Apple devices are Mac OS-X and iOS.

What are the correct methods for setting up a local NAS as the destination for holding Time Machine backups on a Mac OS Sierra v. 10.12.6 Mac?

The path where I would like to store these backups is 10.99.199.249.

I have typed in the following command within the terminal:

sudo tmutil setdestination -p afp://TimeMachine@10.99.199.249/Backups/MBP

Open in new window


However, I receive the message "Failed to open session. (error 5)
The backup destination could not be set"

What can be done to fix this issue so that I can use the NAS as the backup destination for the Time Machine backups?

While using the built in keyboard on my iPad 2 certain keys (such as the "O" key don't respond when I press the button.

My iPad was already doing this while it was running iOS v. 7 and continues to do it after being upgraded to the latest iOS version 9 and continues to do this after I have thoroughly cleaned the screen. I have rebooted the iPad and have shut it down and turned it back on several times.

What else can be done to fix this?

I am a single technician managing 7 stores.
I would like to go more mobile via cell phone iPhone.

I'm looking for something that I can create my own forums and have reminders along with documents.

I'm leaning towards making my own in access however if something is better I don't want to recreate the wheel.

In addition since it's just me I don't want it to be costly since it's an employment job. They have there own software however I want to Crete my own flow and ways of doing things we are allowed to do.

Reaching out of other pros see what you use!

Having an issue with Outlook on IOS devices (iMac, iPhone and iPad) prompting for passwords.  Latest OS and Outlook updates installed.  Appriver hosted exchange account.

When accessing the account on one device it logs the others out.  If the person is in Outlook on their iMac then goes to their iPhone the iPhone asks for a password and after putting it in it will work.  But upon going back to the iMac it will ask for a password.  It does this across all three devices.

It seems to have started doing this after a password change.  We have deleted all keychain references, removed the account and recreated it and of course rebooted everything.  We even tried changing the password back to the original to see if it made a difference and it didn't.

Thanks for your assistance.

I know nothing about Apples.

I have a guy that is taking pictures in NYC with his IPhone.  He downloads it to this lap top.  He can't find the actually image files to download with FTP.  

It appears to me that Apple is saving the same file with 2 file names.  One is "IMG_1233.JPG" and the second is a title such as "385 Madison"

Either way, he has no idea where the actually image is.

Any ideas?

I want to make sure my MacBook is secure.  I have created a strong password for login/user account.  However, I know I have forgotten it before and have been able to go into Recovery and then Terminal and reset it.  This seems like pretty weak security.  Does anyone have a better solution to protect my data in case my MacBook is lost or stolen?

I have a new 2017 iMac running the latest release of Sierra. I have a USB-3 OWC External drive enclosure with a WD 2 GB disk in it. I have it partitioned into two; external backup and Time machine.

Mostly my Mac will go in and out of sleep just fine and the disks will stay attached and without error. But a couple of times, I'll bring the Mac out of sleep and there will be an error message that both partitions have been ejected improperly. I then usually need to power the drive cage off and back on in order for the Mac to recognize the disks. I've never ever had this happen before; but this is a new drive cage and disk for me as well.   I also have a USB-3 drive cage with an SSD in it that I have BC installed on and even when the spinning disks get the eject message this drive stays OK and attached properly.

Anyone have any thoughts on this?

Hi Experts,

My Dad saved around 200 notes directly on his iPhone. Now I got him Exchange.

Is there any quick way that I can transfer those notes either on his Exchange account or on a Windows Hard-drive?

Thank you

The monitor is Apple Cinema HD Display (23 inch diagonal)
Trying to connect it to recent model MacBook Pro with 4 USB-C ports

Here's how it's connected:
  • The USB from the "Octopus" connector goes to a USB2 to USB-C adapter, plugged directly in.
  • The DVI from the "Octopus" connector is first going to a DVI to Mini Display Adaptor, which worked fine when plugged into the Thunderbolt port of an MacBook Air
  • This adapter goes to a ITD ITANDA Thunderbolt  to USB-C adaptor, directly plugged in.
The power light on the Apple Cinema HD Display is on, the USB is plugged in, but the computer doesn't recognize the display.

Do we have the wrong Mini-Display port to USB-C adapter?

Is there a way to attach this second monitor?

Thanks

Hi,

We have a serious issue with one of our company top executives, he is using Apple MAIL App on Mac OS, till yesterday, it was working fine and synchronizing emails with Google App, but today it stopped downloading emails. i tried to troubleshoot it. He was connecting through Wifi so i checked by connecting his laptop to 4G but still it is not downloading EMAILS. whereas he can view all his emails on his mobile and on Web. so the problem is not related to Google.

Please help me to rectify this issue.


Thanks

Hi

Anyone any experience of imaging these machines ?  I have built my first machine and its all ok, I would normally use Clonezilla for imaging but it reports a GPT/MBR mismatch so doesnt work.

I will have about 40 machines to do so ideally looking for something fairly quick to deploy.

Thanks
