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

I am new to these machines and am having difficulty setting this to do the most mundane of tasks.
I have Antivirus software that I have installed and configured to update and scan, however this requires manual intervention.

it would be good to set this up to run - on start - or at a specific time of night - or simply at the time of choosing.

it would not just be with this app.... but would be useful for others.

However, what I have been able to find is there are products that can be purchased as add-ons. Is this the case with most or all of MAC utilities?

Any assistance gratefully received

Looking to help a friend who uses a mac - I only know windows.

He says it's running really slow.  Where would you start to troubleshoot?  

Is there an equivalent task manager to show what's running / what's taking processor power?

How do you tell if the hard drive is full? (is it the same as windows - you don't want the hard drive near full because of temp files /  etc?

How much RAM would you want on a machine these days? What mac would you say is just too old for casual business use these days?  Me, I don't like celerons or any other processors others than i5 or i7 (maybe i3).  Yes, core 2 duos run windows, but sevearl year old windows PCs just crawl with all the patches / updates / etc on a windows machine.  same for a mac?

And for windows, I'd want 8GB+ RAM.  4 would be the lowest I'd deal with.

thoughts?

Okay, I'm in murky territory because I half know what I'm doing. Here's the run down.

I'm trying to update Desktop Server on my Mac. The latest version has undergone big changes and it's been impressed upon us to backup our sites. I'm following the instructions here. I've gotten to the Activity Monitor part and am trying to get a sample of the mysqld.
I had two showing up in activity monitor due to an old Mamp installation. I used the command line to totally turn that off. So, now I have one occurrence in the activity monitor. But, when I go to get the sample it just hangs. I don't know why or what to do...

I need to make sure the mysql server is off before I make my backup.

Have an iMac and all of sudden it said I needed to reboot the computer.  I shut it down and back on and now all the fonts are really small and I cannot see some icons on the top right like the wifi.  I cannot seem to get connected to wifi anymore and it won't let me turn it off and on.  Not sure what to do.

I have a PHP database that outputs emails as .eml files. Outlook 2016 for Mac will not open them in compose mode so the only way I can open them is to Forward. This is very time consuming. There is a button that should work that is Redirect but there are no CC or BCC buttons.

I need to create an applescript that just turns the eml into an editable email that can then be sent.

I have tried this code but it seems to have stopped working,  

-- Resend Message v1.0 (2010-10-27)
-- an applescript by Barry Wainwright
-- Restores the 'Resend' function that was in Entourage but never made it to Outlook
-- when the script is run, with a sent message selected or open, a new copy of the

I use iCloud for Windows to integrate my Windows calendar, etc. with my Mac OS X calendar, etc.  When a reminder pops up for Outlook for Windows 2013, I receive a message pop-up from Messages on my Mac. Can I either stop these pop-ups or at least stop the "ding" when they pop-up?  The ding makes me think I've received a message from someone and it's become annoying.

Thanks for any help.

Good day experts,

Ive set up a Windows Server 2012R2 with RDP services running. I have published Visio and some other Windows only apps so that Apple Mac users can access them. It works well the "Microsoft Remote Desktop Version 8.0.37" client.

However I am hoping to add file association so that if some clicks on an within finder Visio document it automatically launches the RemoteApp. I believe this can be done on the Windows client, but is it possible on the MAC version.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Many Thanks
Jamie
