I have a Mac running Yosemite and all of a sudden I cannot print to my USB printer that has been working.  When I send the print job to the printer it gives an error "cannot read the print job".
I have Parallels running on the system and can print to the same printer through Windows.  
I can also print to a label printer through the Mac connected via USB.  
I have deleted all the printers using reset and setup the printer again.  
Not all that familiar with Mac so finding it hard to troubleshoot.

Hi,

I have a Mac book pro running OSX 10.5.6 the problem is it is crashing and I need to reinstall the operating system. I don’t have the operating system dvd. I don’t need any data from the device.

So is there any way I can wipe and reinstall without having to get the os dvd?

Thanks

We have deployed On-premises MFA server in the customer RDS environment.
The two factor is working perfectly when login in to the MFA user portal or using RDP icon downloaded from the rdweb site. But MAC users and Windows 10 users with the new Remote desktop APP are prompt twice for two factor. I suppose it’s because it connects to the RD Gateway in a different way than mstsc does.
I have tried to activate caching rules in the Azure portal. But I’m not sure if this will have any effect since we have installed the MFA server locally. Anyway, this have no effect on the issue.
We first tested with Duo two factor and also with this software users on Mac and Windows 10 app where prompt twice for the two factor.
Please advise.

While repairing APFS Partition using Disk utility first Aid tool, I received an error message saying “First Aid Process Failed. If possible backup the data on this volume”. Then I restarted the Mac in recovery mode and again tried the same process but got the same error. Are there any chances of data loss? What Should I do to resolve this error message?

I would like to find a way where I can screen share from MacBook to 22x iMacs.
We are running a medical imaging course and it would be beneficial for the delegates to see the slides and content that is being shown by the presenter on a MacBook on the podium up close on the iMacs which each delegate will have in front of them. They will be using software on them later in the day.

I know I could use the native OSX screen sharing software but I wonder if it has limitations when trying to share to 22x iMacs simultaneously?

I presume to maintain performance that an ethernet/switch setup is best rather than attempting a Wi-Fi router.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

We are in a Windows environment and pretty much all our users use Windows computers. They are required to change their password (to log in AD domain) every three months by themselves. What they do is, press <cntrl>+<alt>+<del> and select  "Change a Password" to do the job.
Just recently, we got a Macbook and we don't know how to have this user change his own password (to log in AD domain). Can you help?

I have a Mac book pro which was running on old version - 10.9.7 with Windows running on boot camp. I am not familar with MAC side and always used windows only on this mac.

Recently, due to some issues on my iphone, had to take my phone and mac to apple store which ended up doing a big update on my mac i believe to version 10.13.7 and helped with my iphone restoral which was successfull.

I came home and logged in to windows and noticed that one of the partition on my windows side disappeared i.e Z drive. I originally had C drive and Z drive. I am not really concerned about the data on my Z drive as i do have it backed up but I am curious what happened to it ?  I checked disk management on windows and there is no partition.

I logged into mac side and could only see two drives BootCamp drive ( c drive of windows ) and the Mcintosh HD drive. It is as if my Z drive partition completely disappeared.

Two questions at this point:

1. Any idea what could have happened to my Z drive ? How can this just disappear ?  Is there something simple I am missing.

2.  Inorder to get Z drive back, I started process of Partitioning my Macintosh drive ( Currently 400 GB into 150 GB for Macintosh drive and 250 for new created Z drive )
     Its currently running the process and applying changes to the harddrive.

It is now stuck on this checking object map for about 3 hours now and I am concerned is it even doing anything ?  Mouse cursor is …

MacOS Sierra plug-in configuration a qualified success.  However, I have no CFB perspective.
Install log says:
Installation: Successful with errors.
 
6454 Successes
0 Warnings
2 NonFatalErrors
0 FatalErrors
 
Non fatal errors being two occurrences of
Modify Text File - Single File:   /Users/barrygbrunning/eclipse/java-oxygen/Eclipse.app/Contents/Eclipse/Eclipse.app/Conten ts/Info.plist
                          Status: ERROR
                          Additional Notes: ERROR - Unable to locate ASCII text file to be manipulated. Deferring...
 
Indeed there is no such file, whereas there is a file /Users/barrygbrunning/eclipse/java-oxygen/Eclipse.app/Contents/Info.plist.  At the install log errors referenced path /Users/barrygbrunning/eclipse/java-oxygen/Eclipse.app/Contents/Eclipse/ are located folders: configuration, droppins, features, jre, plugins, readme and the eclipse.ini file, but no info.plist.
 
The implied "Deferring..." action seems to have not happened.  Any suggestions as to what I might do to recover the situation?  What should have happened to an info.plist somewhere? How might I get the CFB perspective to manifest in Eclipse?

How would one go about upgrading MacOS devices to the latest OS (High Sierra at the time of this post) through terminal commands only?  For example, a device running El Capitan needs to be upgraded to High Sierra.  I am looking to run this command across multiple MacOS devices, and for a command or script that could run on any MacOS device.

I am moving to my MacBook Pro; HighSierra 10.13.5 from my old PC that finally died. The Mac has a new install of o365, Outlook v2016. I set up my email (cox.net/imap); and it works great. The problem is importing my .PST from my current Windows PC; Outlook 2013. The .PST is approx 2gb. The import works fine; no errors, but when I restart and look in "On My Computer", there is nothing there; no inbox; folders; nothing. It DOES import Tasks (Categories, etc). Anybody have any ideas? Thanks in advance.

I understand that Microsoft's Support and Recovery Assistant (SaRA) is able to troubleshoot Outlook for MAC versions 2016 and 2011.

Is it possible to install and run SaRA on a MAC client? Is there a .dmg available for download?

Thanks in advance for the guidance. I've been unable to find an answer.

I have multiple macs logging into an AD domain. This has been the case for 7 years. No problems for 7 years. Suddenly, I am having multiple Macs unable to log back in after their screensaver has kicked in, or their computer has gone to sleep. They are told they have an incorrect password. The only way for the user to log back in is to force the Mac to shut down, wait a few minutes, then boot back up. Once done they are able to login. Most users this has happened to were able to do this once or twice and the problem disappeared. One user has not been so lucky. I have been working on her system for 2 days now with no luck.

One common solution to the problem is to turn off the password requirement when waking the computer. However, in a work environment, this is very insecure. I have tried other solutions, including increasing the DSBindTimeout. Now I am at a loss.

Computers running OSX (Not sure what version) all of a sudden are having problems resolving DNS.  This is all within the same household.  The family can go to a local coffee shop and experience the same issues while connected to WIFi there when no one else is having the problem.  The latency only seems to be an issue when you're using a web browser.  If you run nslookup from the console or ping, no problems are evident.

  • DNS resolution from the console is instant no matter what.
  • Flushed DNS Cache
  • Reset PRAM
  • Reset SMC
  • Tried different browsers, DNS resolution in all browsers takes 30-60 seconds per domain.
  • Ran ESET Cyber Security Pro to see if anything popped up there, nothing did.
  • Going to run Malwarebytes to see what it finds.
  • Tried different DNS, 1.1.1.1 and 8.8.8.8


Please advise.

Mac OSX question

I have a large library of digital media. Most of it is kept "offline" but the library software I use (Plex) uses media files to build the library and so I need to use placeholder files.

Using 30 second "this file is archived" videos I can easily catalog offline movies in Plex. I "rsync" the directory structure without files and then "do cp" a placeholder into each movie directory and rename using the parent folder name.

For TV shows this isn't practical as there can be hundreds of episodes per show. I would like to know if there is a way to duplicate the folder/file structure of a tv show, with many episodes under a single folder, using the same placeholder file.

To reiterate, the ultimate goal is to take a placeholder file eg. "placeholder720p.mkv" and use this file to recreate the source directory with the same filenames. So in the end I will have a folder that looks identical to the source, but consists of this placeholder file duplicated over and over. Also, there are non-alphanumeric characters and spaces in the filenames to be duplicated.

Running exchange 2013 & having problems with a Mac client, running Outlook 2011.
I keep getting the message 'The folder cannot be synchronized with the server'. There is an option to empty the cache, but is that on the whole inbox or a folder inside it, as this user has a whole lot of them. There is a warning on the empty cache page, so I am wary to run that, fearing that it may delete emails, folders, etc.
Is there a way to see if it is a specific folder causing the problem?
Don't know if this is related, but the first folder in there has a ' at the start of the name, I'm assuming so it will be a the top of his list of folders.
Could that be part of the problem?
Trying to replicate issue on my mac & after a few attempts, I'll get the message 'Outlook must be closed because an error occurred', which he is not getting.
Mailbox is 7.1 GB, if that matters, either.
