Change of ~/Library after moving home directory

The home directory path is hard coded in a couple of files under ~/Library/Preferences/. After moving home directory to another machine it is necessary to remove 2 files before logging in at the display:

~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.finder.plist
~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.sidebarlists.plist

These will be regenerated with correct values after the next login.

Using laptop with network cable

Important: if you connect you laptop with a cable (as opposed to using wireless) always choose the location “ITA” when you are at the Institute! (yes, it might work with “Automatic” as well, but then you use one of the few DHCP addresses we need for installation of new laptops etc.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mounting your home directory with samba

While on the cabled network you might mount your $HOME using samba:

  • Open Finder
  • In Finder Connect to Server with ⌘ K
  • Add the text below and replace USERNAME with your username:
           smb://sunflower.uio.no/USERNAME
        

If you want to save the address for mounting at at a later moment, hit "+" before you Connect.

In the same manner you may mount the data disks, use their names as USERNAME from the examples above. The samba shares by 8/2019 are:

astro_admin
stornext_d5
stornext_d8
stornext_d9
stornext_d10
stornext_d11
stornext_d15
stornext_d16
stornext_d17
stornext_d18
