Migrating Your Company's PCs

To keep pace with competitors, businesses must keep employees productive, and that means providing them with the latest technology. This document provides the tips and tricks you need to help you migrate an outdated PC fleet to new desktops, laptops, and tablets.

I have a client with a MacBook that is MIA.  

We believe that it has been wiped and has had Mac OS X reinstalled.

If it has an active internet connection is it possible to find it via serial number or some other way?

I figure it is a lost cause but I am not a Mac expert so I thought that I would through it out there.

Can anyone recommend software that will read/rip a BluRay BD disc to my Mac?
I have a suitable BD Drive, and proved that it works by using "Leawo" free trial, but do not want to buy that particular SW.

(For what it is worth, the Leawo.Net  software did work flawlessly ... but ... <rant warning> the download page said "free", with no sign of a Trial, THEN it became $44.95 with no other info, so I tried the SW then went to Purchase it, the $44.95 is for One Year only (that was not disclosed earlier earlier) and the "Lifetime" version was $99.  To borrow a term from my SEO friends, this was a little too much 'black hat' for me, and I don't want to do business with them, whoever/wherever they are!)

Thanks All

Hello Experts,
This customer of ours has a LAN with three mac OSX Yosemite,
procesor Intel 2.7 Ghz Core I5
8 Gb Ram 1600 Mhz DDR3

Inside each mac there is parallels with WIN 10 and our APP
Now our app works with MYSQL  and visual c# ,,,,
one of the MAC works as a server and the other two are stations consulting/updating the server,

All three macs are wireless and too slow
is it true.... if I switch to network cable instead of wifi,
 it may be faster at least something faster that we can notice ?

And what can I do to make these mac faster..
clearly they have not had any proper maintenance before...

but also is parallels also making it even much more slower??
not win 10 inside parallels shows a network speed of 1 GB is this reliable ?
Regards,

Hello,

I have a client that attempted to clean out emails on her MAC for several hours. NOw, as soon as the MAC Synced with our Exchange server all the mail came back that she deleted. What would cause this to happen? How can I prevent for the mail to come back once she syncs to our Exchange. It seems like while she is deleting the mail isn't being updated properly to Exchange.

I have Exchange 2013 and client has standard MAC mail app settings.

Thank you!

Three Reasons Why Backup is Strategic

Three Reasons Why Backup is Strategic

Backup is strategic to your business because your data is strategic to your business. Without backup, your business will fail. This white paper explains why it is vital for you to design and immediately execute a backup strategy to protect 100 percent of your data.

Hi All Expert,

Good Day.

I would like to check if any expert here has MAC ISO and Windows Server 2012 ISO for VirtualBox, couldn't get one and some many fake ISO.

Thanks!

Could I for example have this setup on a MacBook Pro with a 2 TB SSD drive?:

Mac OS X, Windows 10, the Chromebook OS, two Linux distributions, and Unix.

And then I can switch between each of these with the press of a button? Or, as I received an answer earlier regarding this, I instead need to log out and log into each of the OSs (there was some advantage with this)?

When it comes to making an image of the OSs for quick recovery when needed, should I have only 1 single backup image of the whole VM (including all OSs), or should I have separate backup images for each of the different OSs? I think the second alternative would be best, because it's always not optimal to use a backup image (the performance is not the same, somewhat less performance).

When it comes to being visible on the internet, would I be a more easy target using a MacBook Pro and the VM with different OSs?

What about wifi connection and noise from the fan for a MacBook Pro? Is the wifi working excellent to connect to any network, and is there no risk for a lot of noise from the fan when running software in different OSs or when accessing certain websites?

Let's say I have a lot of different program licenses for Windows programs, and I run these Windows programs in a virtual machine in MacBook Pro. Then I decide I want to move these program licenses to another physical computer. Would it then be possible to just transfer this virtual machine to the new physical computer and keep all program licenses and software installations intact, and begin using them on the new physical computer?

Would there be any Window programs I wouldn't be able to run in a MacBook Pro, even when running them in a VM in MacBook Pro?

I've got a spreadsheet with data validation on some cells and an input message that pops up, to help users enter the right numbers.  In Excel for Windows, the data validation tips display perfectly, but on Mac Excel 2016, and I think earlier versions too, the text wraps.  Here's how it should look:
1. All
2. Nearly all
3. Most
4. Some
5. None

But on the Mac it comes up:
1. All  2. Nearly all  3.
Most  4. Some  5.
None

Is there a way of fixing this?
Thanks

Hello Experts,
A recetly purchases MAC had paerallels installed and a wind 10
all was good for a few days...
now the MAC is noticeably slower than its similars... this customer has the exact three macs
but even worst PARALLES with our app simply freezes few times a day...
The only way we were able to restore it is by restarting Parallels..

What can we do in this case ?

Hello, I am trying to manually put in the command to boot to the system disk on a MAC OS X system.  It's an iMac A1311.  When the system boots, it goes to the recovery options every time.  If you try to select a startup disk, there is none.

I have attempted First Aid, which comes back with error 8.  However, I have booted up in single user mode and ran fsck -y which came back okay.  I see the boot.efi file in /System/Library/CoreServices, but when I try to run a command such as

% sudo systemsetup -setstartupdisk /System/Library/CoreServices it comes back with fg: %: no such job

I am way more familiar with Command Prompt then Terminal, so maybe I'm missing something.  Suggestions?

Hi,
I have a user who has a drive that was bought into the business where the file was created on a mac.
Windows can see the folder but has the name D:\foldername?
It isn't possible to browse the folder even though it is a word document inside.
I have tried renaming the folder in My Computer and from the command line using rename but it doesn't work.
Any thoughts how I might change the filename given we don't have a Mac to do it with?
Thanks in advance :)

Does it work the same way with a MacBook Pro as with a Windows computer that you need to make a lot of configurations of it if you want it to be as quick (especially what regards streaming online video) and streamlined as possible?
