    Dear All,

    How do I change the current Short Name (e.g. Richard) in my iMac under Admin account? I have tried to create another account (e.g. Rich) and hopefully I can delete the previous Short Name (Richard) but failed.

    Any idea how to do it?

    Thanks in advance.

    What is the best way to change the short name and could you list the steps involved? and is the short name the one that appears under MAC OS X at the login screen? or is it the one next to the home folder? Or is it both? THanks for the help!

    DB:3.32:Short Name? 3m

    you'll end up running into owner ship permissions, to get around this you could go into terminal and enter:

    DB:3.31:Really Changing The Short Name. 31


    Is there an actual method for changing the short name? The methods I've seen involve basically making a new user, just with everything transferred from the old user.

    What I really want to do is to change the short name of the admin user on my server. I've used my name for it and I want my name to be a real user, not an admin. You can't take away the admin rights or change the name.

    So I installed Tiger server (and it updated to 10.4.8) and then went through the setup process. The admin user name I used was my user name (this was the mistake), now I want my name back.

    I went through this with Jaguar server, and my solution then was to reformat and reinstall. I think I'm going to have to do the same again.

    DB:3.31:Really Changing The Short Name. 31

    That looks like it would really do it. I just tried it on a test system and the user had his short name changed. There's some complication about home directories and passwords, and I managed to make WGM crash. Its not something I'd recommend, and its a good job root is enabled by default or I wouldn't have been able to get in.

    I think this'll work, but it needs to be done carefully. I've already formatted and reinstalled the system I was interested in anyway. I think that's the safest way to do it.

    I'm using a computer at work that was previously used and administered by a former employee who has since left the company. I need everything to maintain exactly the same settings since I need to work on this computer in the same fashion as the former user. I was provided with the old password and I've changed the account (the only one on the machine) to now have my user ID and password etc. but the 'short name' is still this other person's name. I don't see any way to change this short of creating a new admin account and then deleting the old one, but then I loose all the settings, prefs etc. from the existing account which I really can't do since I need all of those settings to get my work done on this machine.

    Is there any work-around that I can use to modify the short name in the existing admin account, or alternately is there a way to duplicate an entire account with it's settings intact so that I can rename it with my own user name, short name and password?

    Thanks a lot for any help you can provide!

    Hello

    I have created a Data Lookup table which matches the short description to then assign the assignment group for incidents within our Service Now instance.

    I have left exact match unticked as the short description is just the start of the email - the emails may come in with a different UID at the end e.g. WorldPay CARD transaction confirmation: (followed by number)

    When icndients are created using the specified text the process works fine

    When type an incidents short description with a random name e.g. Microsoft Office it will then randomly select an assignment group.

    I have tried to enter a wild card option e.g.

    assignment group = Service Desk

    Short Description = (blank)

    This doesnt work, I have tried to change the order in the table to be before any incident which results in all incidents being assigned to Service Desk

    Or at the end which again results in all random assignment of other assignment groups.

    All other matcher fields have the order of 100

    Do i need to change the order so it runs each task 1 by 1?

    Or is there a method to say when "Short Description" starts with (whatever) then assign to this if not assign to service desk with Data Lookup?

    Cheers

    Hi

    My girlfreind just bought a new macbook, and I inherited her old one - I used it all the time anyhow but since she was no longer using this macbook, i changed the email and stuff over to me - fine - all went well...

    Then I decided i wanted to change the short name... and i did a net search and did something in my 'netinfo manager' utility something or other that someone suggested - and it changed my short name ... seemed fine...

    for a day or two...

    now i've figured out how to get all my stuff into my new short name account - all my itunes and garageband songs etc, and all seemed fine...

    but

    it seems i don't have administrator access anymore.... it's daylight savings and i discovered i can't change the clock...

    and anyway - i tried changing the password with the osx install disk using my name (amy davidson and new password) - and it all seems fine... except this computer seems to have lost it's administrator and i don't know what to do - and mary's bought me a new version of logic express for this computer and i can't install it.... and etc etc etc.... just basic dilemas....

    I was wondering if anyone else has gotten into this predicament before and can suggest a way that I can fix it.... i guess i could change back the short name to her name maybe - but then i'd need to wait another 2 hours while my garageband and itunes folders swap places again... and - oh gosh i'm stuck and need a hand...

    it's late and i can't quite think strait now - and I realise now changing the 'shortname' is not recommended - but i jolly well did it before I knew that and now i'm stuck... and it took me two days to get my internet and email and garageband and itunes working since i did the name change and i don't want to waste another two days fluffing around with stuff I know nothing about....

    DB:3.00:Fusion 3.1.3 Problem With Windows 8.3 Short Names And Shared Folders - Bug Report dj



    Mac OS X 10.7.1 Lion

    Fusion 3.1.3

    VM: Windows XP SP3

    Just did a test upgrade of one of our build systems from Mac OS X 10.6.8 and Fusion 2.0.8 to Mac OS X 10.7.1 and Fusion 3.1.3 and ran into a problem using shared folders where the Windows WDK build tools were unable to access the build directories that they had just created on a shared folder.

    Here's a simple procedure for demonstrating the underlying issue.

    Fusion 3.1.3 is generating 8.3 short names on shared folder volumes, but it's not mapping the 8.3 short names correctly to the underlying Mac folder.

    Steps to Reproduce:

    In the VM Settings create a Shared Folder "SharedDir" that maps to a folder on the Mac host.In the Windows VM, open a Command Prompt and execute the following commands:Map the shared directory to the w drive letter:
    subset w: "\\vmware-host\Shared Folders\SharedDir"
    Change to the w drive:
    w:
    List the shared directory contents:
    dir
    Create a test directory:
    mkdir LongDirName
    List the shared directory contents, adding the /X arg to have it also display the 8.3 short names:
    dir /X
    Example output with OS X 10.7.1 and Fusion 3.1.3:
    09/02/2011 11:15 AM DIR LONG~565 LongDirName
    Create a test sub-directory, first using the directory's full name:
    mkdir LongDirName\LongSubDirTest1
    Now create a 2nd test sub-directory, this time using the directory's 8.3 short name (as shown in the dir /X output):
    mkdir LONG~565\LongSubDirTest2

    Result:

    Instead of mapping the short name to the correct directory, it has created a second directory based on the 8.3 short name.

    Looking at the shared folder on the Mac host, the results are:
    LONG~565/
    LongSubDirTest2/
    LongDirName/
    LongSubDirTest1/

    Expected behavior:

    Both the directory's full name and 8.3 short name should resolve to the same directory on the shared folder on the Mac host.
    LongDirName/
    LongSubDirTest1/
    LongSubDirTest2/

    This issue does not occur with Fusion 2.0.8 on Mac OS X 10.6.8. In fact with the same test it appears that Fusion 2.0.8 doesn't support 8.3 short names on shared folders as the "dir /X" output step above doesn't list any 8.3 short names.

    Anyone else run into this?

    Looking for a workaround. Is there any way to disable 8.3 name support on shared folders in Fusion 3.1.3?

    I found that there's a registry setting in Windows that can be used to disable 8.3 name support; I tried it but it only works for local file systems -- not for network shares.

    DB:2.95:Change Account Name 3p

    You can change the username using Netinfo Manager. CAUTION! before you do it enable root account and log into root account to change the username. Changing the username will cause that user to lose admin status, and if that is the only admin user on your machine you will find it without an admin user.

    After you change the username, you need to examine the Accounts prefpanel to reset the admin status of the new user, then reboot. You should be able to log in to the new account as usual. Post here any problems, because they can happen.

    After the process is complete you can disable root account.

    This is probably easy to do but I can't seem to figure it out. Is there a way to add CR fields to the change task short description and instructions? I want to add more details in those fields with the CR details. For example, in the short description I want something like 'Implement Change for change_request.Number for change_request.Planned_start_date}'.

    I've tried to add ${change_request.Number}, change_request.Number, change_request.number, current.number and other combinations but that didn't work. Does anyone know how to do this?

    Thanks,

    I bought this ibook from my mother -n- law. It still has her name as the owner and as the "short name." How do I change this?

    DB:2.92:"Short Name?" x8

    Hi

    When you log in as a different user, the environment will appear "as new". You'll have a blank desktop, a default dock, and so on. This is normal.

    What you need to do is this. Log out, and log back in as your old user. Move any files that are in your home folder, which you want to access with the other user, to the Users/Shared folder. (Open a Finder window, click on the hard drive, and you'll see the Users folder - Shared is in there.) Don't move anything from the Library folder just yet.

    Now, log out and back in as your new user. In Finder, go to the Users/Shared folder and find those files you just copied. If you copied any folders (eg Desktop), and they appear read-only, you can highlight them, click cmd-i to open Get Info, and change the Ownership and Permissions tab so that you are the owner and have read/write access.

    Then copy any files you need to their correct locations (eg, if you want some of those old files on the Desktop, or in your Documents folder, etc).

    About opening applications - you should still be able to run any applications from the Applications folder. Did you definitely set up your user as an administrator? (If you're not sure, go back to the Accounts preferences, and see if your name has "Admin" or "Standard" under it. If it's Standard, log back in as the old user, go to the Accounts preferences, click on your account and click "Allow user to administer this computer".)

    If you're definitely an admin, can you post exactly what you try to do and what the message says?

    Karen is absolutely correct. You cannot change a short name in Tiger. I copy and pasted this from my Tiger Help Viewer:

    "You can't change the short name for a user account after the account has been created. If you need to change the short name, you must delete the account and create a new user account with a new short name."

    byte[] name = new byte[5];
    byte[] buffer= new byte[255];

    case NAME_VIEW_MENU_SELECT :

    apdu.setOutgoingAndSend((short) 0, (short) (buf[1]+2));

    }So with this as base setup.. now in the Case block when i try to do the Utilities.createDisplayMsg(headermsg,buffer).. the jcop shell throws 6f 00 no precise diagnostic.. So i dont know what else to change here to make it work. Or there is some limitation on library creation / usage with the JCOP java card jvm itself...

    DB:2.86:Re: How To Create A Java Card Library (Jar File To Be Used In Other Programs) zp

    This is because of the context that owns the byte array. Here is a simple way around this. Note: this only works if all applets that access the data are in the same package (the utilities class can be in any package as long as it is the same as the applets access it or in a library package with no applets.

    package oracle.forum.utils;

    import javacard.framework.Util;

    public class Utilities {
    // public static byte[] msgdata = new byte[255];
    private static byte[] headerTemplate;
    private static short refCount = 0;

    public Utilities() {
    }

    public static void init() {
    refCount++;

    if (headerTemplate == null) {
    headerTemplate = new byte[] { (byte) 0x81, (byte) 0x03, (byte) 0x01, (byte) 0x21, (byte) 0x00, // Command details tag
    (byte) 0x82, (byte) 0x02, (byte) 0x81, (byte) 0x02, // Device Identities tag
    (byte) 0x8D, // Text String tag
    (byte) 0x00, // length
    (byte) 0x04, // Text String tag
    };
    }
    }

    public static void release() {
    --refCount;

    // only release if there are no more references
    if (refCount == 0) {
    headerTemplate = null;
    }
    }

    // create a display to be shown.
    public static short createDisplayMsg(byte[] message, byte[] outBuffer) {
    try {
    Util.arrayCopy(headerTemplate, (short) 0, outBuffer, (short) 0, (short) headerTemplate.length);
    Util.arrayCopy(message, (short) 0, outBuffer, (short) headerTemplate.length, (short) message.length);
    short index = (short) (headerTemplate.length + message.length);
    outBuffer[10] = (byte) (message.length + 1);
    return index;
    } catch (Exception ex) {
    return 0;
    }
    }
    }Set each constant you want to have as a static variable and initialise the contents in the init() method. You need to all release() in your applet from unisintall (implement AppletEvent interface). Here is an example applet that uses this

    package oracle.forum;

    import oracle.forum.utils.Utilities;
    import javacard.framework.APDU;
    import javacard.framework.Applet;
    import javacard.framework.AppletEvent;
    import javacard.framework.ISO7816;
    import javacard.framework.ISOException;
    import javacard.framework.JCSystem;
    import javacard.framework.Util;

    /**
    * @author sfarmer
    *
    */
    public class Main extends Applet implements AppletEvent {
    private byte[] buffer;

    /**
    *
    */
    public Main() {
    buffer = JCSystem.makeTransientByteArray((short) 32, JCSystem.CLEAR_ON_DESELECT);
    Utilities.init();
    }

    public static void install(byte[] bArray, short bOffset, byte bLength) {
    // GP-compliant JavaCard applet registration
    new Main().register(bArray, (short) (bOffset + 1), bArray[bOffset]);
    }

    public void process(APDU apdu) {
    // Good practice: Return 9000 on SELECT
    if (selectingApplet()) {
    return;
    }

    byte[] buf = apdu.getBuffer();

    apdu.setIncomingAndReceive();

    switch (buf[ISO7816.OFFSET_INS]) {
    case (byte) 0x00:
    Util.arrayCopy(buf, ISO7816.OFFSET_CDATA, buffer, (short) 0, buf[ISO7816.OFFSET_LC]);
    short len = Utilities.createDisplayMsg(buffer, buf);
    apdu.setOutgoingAndSend((short) 0, len);
    break;
    default:
    // good practice: If you don't know the INStruction, say so:
    ISOException.throwIt(ISO7816.SW_INS_NOT_SUPPORTED);
    }
    }

    /*
    * (non-Javadoc)
    *
    * @see javacard.framework.AppletEvent#uninstall()
    */
    public void uninstall() {
    Utilities.release();
    }

    }These will not be constants technically but you can ensure that they are only initialised once. This code protects against multiple calls to init and release so every applet that needs access to these can call these methods so that they do not depend on another applet doing it.

    Cheers,
    Shane

    Is there anyway to change the User name or the Short name of an account? I tried editing the short name by logging into root user and editing the user folder's name. But then when I go back log in, it create a whole new user. It must be that it does not recognize the edited short name, and therefore creates a new user. Any ideas?

    DB:2.82:Change User Name ax

    Hi Alex,

    1. The User Name is basically a "Displayed Name", this can be changed by Typing a new name in this space, in the Accounts preference pane. - It's the name you see on the login screen

    2. The short name SHOULD NOT be modified, it is a file directory, changing it will effectively create a new user account (could also corrupt the user's data) - it's used by the system to determine file directories (its also you network ID)

    The best 'safe' way of changing the short name is creating a new user from scratch and migrating the files from one 'home' folder to the other, either by using the Root user or the Drop Box in the user's Public Folder. - modify the short name when you create the user...

    PS: I would not suggest messing around in your Root directory. Put simply, it's not to be trifled with unless you know EXACTLY what your doing.

    Kind Regards.

    Peter.

    DB:2.82:Dns Suffix Not Being Passed To Pptp Clients By Sever 2008 sc


    All, We have been using RRAS on Server 2003 as a PPTP Server at various clients for years now and have been successfully assigning the connection-specific DNS suffix via DHCP to support short name resolution on non-domain clients.  We accomplish this by setting on the DHCP server, the option 015 DNS Domain Name with a class of Default Routing and Remote Access Class (in addition to the usual None entry for local clients).  This always worked and ipconfig on the clients would display the remote internal domain name in both the connection-specific DNS suffix for the PPP adapter and also in the DNS Suffix Search List.  We did not ever need to set the DNS suffix on the client-side using this method. However, the first time we have tried this on Server 2008, it is not working at all.  Of course we can connect and can ping by IP and FQDN but we are not getting the connection-specific DNS suffix passed to the clients via DHCP so short names don't resolve.  Did something change in 2008?  I have tried changing various options in RRAS but no luck.   Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks, Sean

    DB:2.82:New Pb - Keychain Has Wrong Name 73


    Is there any way to change the short name that is referred to in all the passwords of my Keychain?
    I've just moved to a new PowerBook. I used the Migration Assistant to do the transfer but did not allow for the fact that the new 'short name' in the new computer and the old 'short name' in the material transferred from the old computer would conflict in the Keychains on the new machine. Point is that now, when I'm using my new account in new computer with new short name, it keeps asking for keychain passwords for the old short name!
    Can I change all keys in my keychain to the new short name? Or...
    Can I change my short name to match the old short name?
    Would either of these solve my problem of constantly being asked for passwords for the same functions?
    I hope this makes sense. Thank you.

    DB:2.82:New Pb - Keychain Has Wrong Name 73

    I am presuming that both machines have the same shortname, right?

    You can just use the original Keychains. Look in ~/Library/Keychains for a file called "looginkeychain". There may be others in there i.e from Microsoft). Just move those into the folder on the new machine, and toss the ones in there now. Use Keychain Access to view them, and edit them, if you wish.

    Be warned, that changing the shortname is precarious, at best.

    If he's not going to use the old account, why rename it? Best ideas (as suggested) is to Erase and Install before using the machine (if the install disks were included with the purchase, as they should have been), second best idea is to create a new account and delete the old account. Using the advanced preference is useful if the user has spent a lot of time setting up the machine and now wants to change the short name.

    DB:2.81:Login Name Appears As Full Name - How To Change To Short Name? sj


    My user name for login on previous versions of OS X always appeared as the "short name". Since I installed a fresh copy of Snow Leopard, the user name in login boxes appears as my full name instead. How do I make the short name appear instead? (I'm a bit OCD, otherwise I'm sure it really doesn't matter...)

    DB:2.81:Login Name Appears As Full Name - How To Change To Short Name? sj

    I still don't know whether it's because of the server connection, but I re-installed SL on another Mac on my network - and it did it again. Initially, when I do the install, the account I create shows as Admin. After a couple of reboots, though, it invariably becomes "Admin, Managed" - and the parental controls are turned on.

    The fix is easy, as suggested above:

    = create a second Admin account,
    = log out of the first account,
    = log in as the new Admin account,
    = remove the Parental Controls checkmark from the first account,
    = log out of the new account, and
    = log back into the first account.

    Irritating to have to do, but the Admin setting seems to stick after this process. You can delete the new account once you have fixed the settings on the real Admin account.

    If your issue is a little different than this, you might want to go ahead and start a new thread. Since this one is marked answered, it might get little notice.

    Hi Harry,

    This is name resolution issue , and most probably as the previous replies mentioned it is reverse lookup issue, but i would like to add another recommendation which is deleting the nsr peer information from the client and server, Please follow the steps given below to delete the NSR peer information on NetWorker Server and on the Client.

    At NetWorker server command line, go to the location /nsr/resType the command: nsradmin -p nsrexec print type:nsr peer information; name:client_name delete y
    (specify the name of the client in the place of client_name)

    At the client command line, go to the location /nsr/res Type the command: nsradmin -p nsrexec print type:nsr peer information delete y

    This is an additional recommendation beside the naming resolution investigations that is needed specially the reverse lookup.

    I migrated and later I created a new profile. I then erased the original profile. I had some how in the past changed my short name to a word with a capital and i wasn't very comfortable with that .

    so now my profile wasn't the original on this machine, and it has all lower case.

    But I've been having that whole ACL thing with my repair permissions that take about an hour or so.

    I tried to update my appliations but somehow my admin user doesn't have those permissions.

    I did a repair that told me that I am no longer the 501 user.

    how do i change that?

    I don't seem to have Net Info or whatever utility that is, can i do this in terminal?

    Hi 1Snowbird,

    Do the following on each computer. Do not reinstall until Network Magic is removed from each computer, first. Installing Network Magic again on each computer, won't change a thing, if reinstalled right away.

    Folder locations for Windows XP.

    Uninstall Network Magic. Reboot.

    Use Explore and remove the following folder and its sub-folders:

    \Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Pure Networks

    \Program Files\Pure Networks

    Still using Explore manually clean out your \Temp Folders. Run Disk Cleanup.

    Reboot. Make sure that you are connected to the Router.

    Reinstall Network Magic.

    DB:2.76:Inspiron 580, When Turn On Only Get 2 Short Beeps 7s



    After returning from a trip, I tried to turn on my desktop and it only gives two short beeps. The light below the power cord is green. (At first it gave 4 short beeps, then after I took out the RAM and reinstalled, now I only get 2 short beeps.) I have tried installing only 1 of the 3 RAM cards in each slot, but each time I get the 2 short beeps. Is there anything I can do to fix it?

    thanks, kdw

    DB:2.76:Inspiron 580, When Turn On Only Get 2 Short Beeps 7s


    Hikdwmiami,

    2 beeps in Inspiron 580 at start up means No RAM detected. You may try re-seating the memory module of your computer; swap and try one module at a time in each slot. See if it works. If the memory modules are seated properly, swapped and checked, and do work with another computer; it means it is an issue with the memory slot (motherboard) and might need replacement. You may refer to the table below that describes the issue pertaining to the beep codes:

    CodeDescriptionSuggested Remedy

    1
    BIOS ROM checksum in progress or failure
    System board failure; covers BIOS corruption or ROM error

    2
    No memory modules detected

    If you have two or more memory modules installed, remove the modules, reinstall one module, and then restart the computer. If the computer starts normally, reinstall an additional module. Continue until you have identified a faulty module or reinstalled all modules without error.
    If available, install a good memory module of the same type into the computer.

    3
    Chipset error (North and Southbridge chipset, DMA/IMR/Timer Error for Intel platform); chipset error
    System board failure. Power LED is Blinking Amber or Blinking White.

    Time-Of-Day Clock test failure

    Gate A20 failure

    Super I/O chip failure

    Keyboard controller test failure

    4
    RAM read/write failure

    Ensure no special memory module/memory connector placement requirements exist.
    Verify the memory modules you are installing are compatible with the computer.

    5
    Real time clock failure. Possible battery failure or system board failure.

    Replace the battery.

    6
    Video BIOS test failure
    Video card failure

    7
    CPU cache test failure
    Processor failure

    You may refer to system service manual from link:http://bit.ly/VphDmP to know detailed steps on installation of memory modules. Please ensure to follow safety instructions in manual.

    Please share the findings.

    I have Ibook g3, it was working fine, and I was running 10.4.3 so I wanted to do updated it through apple, but I forgot the password of my user name. So I restarted from tiger, then I reset the password and I updated the system, when I restarted, I couldnt restart . I follow some vague advices, and I restart with pressing on (s) as I remembered, and I wrote codes that took me to the root user or super user, so now I can see the desktop empty except from the hard disk. There is no dock or anything that I can change in the preference. There is admin user, and I cant see my user name in the list of user names even thou that I can see it in the folder called users.
    So I tried to create a new user name and name it with the same user name, but the computer refused. So I add a new user name and tried to switch to this new user name, but it always go to this admin with SHORT NAME ROOT.

    Now would you please guide me to go back to my computer?

    There is no NetInfo Manager in application utility!

    Thanks for your patience

    DB:2.74:Short Name Root dc

    Depressing ⌘s during system bootup brings you up in a command-line environment with root privileges in single-user mode. You can't make yourself another user because you are in single-user mode.

    Like it or not, with the amount of time that has transpired so far and you are still broken, I would try to backup all the documents, files, and folders in all the users' folders and just reinstall the OS, if I were you. Your problem sounds reminiscent of a time when I ran a too-old version of TechTool Pro on my Tiger installation, it went to "fix" problems and landed up hosing my hard drive so badly that I could only salvage about 75%-80% of my users' documents, and I landed up just zeroing the hard drive and reinstalling a fresh new everything, and copying the salvaged users' documents back in after the fact.

    Can you borrow another Macintosh computer? If so, connect the two computers together using a firewire cable. Boot up your iBook G3 in target disk mode by starting up your iBook then immediately press and hold down the "T" key until a gold-colored FireWire icon on a blue background appears on the iBook's screen. Your iBook should appear as a hard disk icon on the second computer. Copy all the files from all the User folders off of your iBook G3.

    Then reinstall the OS on your iBook using the "archive and install" option, and do not import user or network settings. Recreate them manually. Then delete the Previous System folder that is at the root level like /Users, /Applications, etc., are. Next, apply the 10.4.9 combo update and security patches issued after that. Finally, copy all of your users' documents, files, and folders from the borrowed computer back into the appropriate recreated user accounts on your rebuilt iBook G3. This is easily done by rebooting the borrowed computer into target disk mode, by holding down the "T" key, as before.

    If you don't have a whole bunch of third-party software installed on your iBook, and you aren't averse to reinstalling all your third-party software, too, then you might even want to consider doing an "erase/reformat" install of the OS, rather than an "archive and install". Then you will be "just like new".

    This might take you several hours to do, but you've already been broken for five days. And, if you are missing important applications and executables like NetInfo Manager, it is hard to say what other important OS files, binaries, and applications might be damaged or missing, particularly if reapplying the combo update didn't seem to help.

    That process did exactly as I had read in a few threads on the net. It locked me out of my admin account. My previous password no longer works to authenticate and log in.

    DB:2.74:Somehow My Short User Name Has A Space In It?! 3a


    Hey all

    I've recently used Migration Assistant to move my user account from my old iMac to my new Macbook Pro. My user account was called Nathan on my iMac. However I didn't run migration assistant on the first boot - i had way too much stuff on my iMac to fit on the smaller hd of my laptop. So on the first boot i created an account also called Nathan on my macbook, without really thinking. When i'd trimmed my iMac down, I ran MA and was told I couldn't have a second account also called Nathan - quite obviously. So I added a 2 to the end of it to make it Nathan 2.

    6 hours later i then deleted the first account 'Nathan' and am now left with 'Nathan 2'. I'm a fussy guy and it's irritating me. I've tried to use the ShortNameChanger script but its complaining my current short name is invalid (?) due to the space. Have I somehow slipped through a loophole in migration assistant and managed to get an invalid short user name? Is there nothing i can do to fix it/change it?

    Also, whilst I'm here Onyx refuses to run saying that I'm not an administrator - although I clearly am. Is that related?

    P.S. can someone also tell me how to change the name of my computer? because it's still called Nathan's iMac G5 which has somehow sneaked across via migration assistant, and because its now a macbook pro i want to change it. thanks guys

    Dan Frakes, I'm posting this reply in the hope that maybe you'll receive an e-mail notification of someone replying to your message post. I'm wondering there's any chance you'd consider sending me this special version of ChangeShortName as well? My situation is a bit more problematic (okay, to me) than the issue Nathan describes here -- I had to erase and reformat my HD after repeated kernel panics and I'm now attempting to restore from backup. BUT, the main account on the Mac had a short user name with a space in it, due to a migration sequence similar to what Nathan went through. The result is that I can't restore the necessary files to the home folder for that user, because I can't create a matching short user name! (Unless I'm missing something, but it sure doesn't seem like I am.)

    If I'm understanding correctly that the newer version of ChangeShortName will help me in my situation, I would really appreciate your sending it to me. I'll be more than happy to make a contribution to the cause in return. Earlier today I sent you a separate e-mail message through your Web site; I'm just trying to increase the chances that you'll get my inquiry one way or another.
