Standard Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) Image for TU Delft

Welcome to the TU-Delft standard-Mac, a few things will briefly be explained in this document.Note that this document is only valid for OS X 10.4 Tiger. Check for the latest version of this document here. (www.mac.tudelft.nl)For information about Leopard, please look here.LoginFrom now on you are supposed to log on to your Mac with your Net ID and Password. The NetID is a standard user-account without administrative rights on your Mac. If you want to install up-dates or other software, you should authenticate with an administrative account like local adminor your former local admin-account when asked. Some software requires you to log on with an administrative account.The first time you log on with your NetID your Mac has to be wired to the network. After a successful log on you can log on at home or via wireless a number of times with your NetID with so called ?cached credentials?.NetID and (Keychain-)Password When you change your password on your Mac, your key chain-password is automatically changed to your new NetID password.However, if you change your NetID-password on the NetID-site your Keychain-password is notchanged. To make your key chain-password the same as your NetID-password do the following.Hereby the old key chain-password is your old NetID-password.Remember that when you change your NetID-password, you also have to change the passwordin your mail-application (Mail or Entourage).If you use VPN, Webprint or Wireless Network, you also have to change your password there.See the appropriate sections in the manuals at www.mac.tudelft.nl.Home Folder When you log in with your NetID and Password, you get a local home folder, marked with a symbol of a house. If you are wired to the network, a home-folder on the network will be mounted on your desktop, this one is represented by a small globe.Everything your put on your network home-folder will be backed up every day, the local home-folder will not. You can use arRsync (see Standard Software below) to synchronise folders from your local home-folder (source) tothe network home-folder (destination). For a simple manual of arRsync look here.?Forbidden? characters in Filenames When saving files or folders on the (Windows-based)network, avoid the following characters since Windows doesn’t support them: * . ” / \ [ ] : ; | = , see also wikipedia.Don’t use these ‘forbidden characters’ for file- and folder-names on your network-home and group folders. On your local home-folder there is no problem in using them. However if you plan to synchronise these files or folders to the network, the problem will occur and your files will not be synchronised.
