The other day I was trying to access some restricted preferences on a 10.6 client, bound to a 10.6 Server that no longer existed, and because of this, I had no way of removing the restrictions
Or so I thought, thankfully Apple had provided a Knowledge Base article detailing how to manually flush the cache, enabling access to the previously restricted preferences.
To do this, I opened up Terminal and input the following command all on one line
dscl . -list Computers | grep -v "^localhost$" | while read computer_name ;
do sudo dscl . -delete Computers/"$computer_name" ; done
This worked, I was able to amend the settings needed, I have provided the link to the Apple page below, in case you need information on how to do this on earlier OS’s
So, if you have recently updated your Sophos to the shiny new version (8), then you may have come across the following oddity, 2 Sophos icons in the menubar
Now I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling, that doesn’t resolve it, the issue is with a (now defunct) login item left behind from the older versions of Sophos, the new version doesn’t need it, so the solution is to delete it, as detailed below
Open System Preferences, Users & Groups, click on your account and then the Login Items tab, then click on the padlock in the bottom left hand corner of the window
once unlocked, click on the SophosUIServer entry and then click on the minus button at the bottom of the window, confirm that you are happy to delete it and then reboot
Once logged in you should only have 1 Sophos icon in your menubar
So, if you’ve recently updated your HP Drivers to version 2.10 then you may have noticed that when you try and print a document that it crashes the application that you are trying to print from.
To rectify this, you need to do the following
Click on Finder
Click on ‘Go’ in the menubar
Click on ‘Go to Folder’
Paste the following location
CTRL click on the ‘hpPostScriptPDE.plugin’
Click on ‘Show Package Contents’
Click on ‘Contents’
Delete the PlugIns folder
Now try printing a document, you should find that it now works as expected.
