Adding users to group www with NetInfo doesn't seem to work

I've added several users to the www group using NetInfo. As you can see, it seems to have worked:
whisper:~ mark$ sudo niutil -read . /groups/www
users: www,mark,rbgramacy
realname: HTTP Users
name: www
generateduid: ABCDEFAB-CDEF-ABCD-EFAB-CDEF00000046
smb_sid: S-1-5-21-170
passwd: *
gid: 70
However, when I look at what groups I belong to, www is not one of them:
computer:~ mark$ id
uid=501(mark) gid=501(mark) groups=501(mark), 81(appserveradm), 79(appserverusr), 80(admin)
Any ideas as to how I might get the addition of the group to actually kick in? The system won't let either user assigned the www group edit files with group www.

I wouldn't edit the www group if I were you. That group is used internally by OS X and meddling with it could have unintended consequenses.
I recommend creating your own custom group and adding the users you want to it. Netinfo Manager is not the easiest tool to use for this. Instead, download the Server Admin Tools from Apple and use Workgroup Manager. It makes creating custom groups a snap.

  • Auto eject volume with SuperDuper doesn't seem to work

    Not sure if there's a problem with my system or what. I use SuperDuper to backup and create a clone of my MacBook Pro and have checked the feature for SuperDuper to eject the mounted volume after the backup is complete. Once the backup is finished, I quit SuperDuper and the icon for my external hard drive then disappears from the Desktop. But the external drive is STILL spinning and doesn't stop -- even if wait a minute or so to keep checking it. Fearing that I will damage the drive, I then go to Disk Utility to select the drive there and eject it. It stops spinning and I disconnect the firewire cable.
    I have already contacted SuperDuper. All they can tell me is the feature works for them and that SuperDuper sends the call to Disk Utility to unmount the volume. If so, why would it still appear in Disk Utility when I go there?
    Any insights are appreciated.

    Can't say, as I don't have Aperture installed- actually did, but trial ran out- to test definitively.
    <br />
    <br />Either someone with same experience will come along and say, or you could try a small controlled experiment to see if perhaps you didn't select All photos on importing the xmp file, etc.

  • "Always allow" with Keychain doesn't seem to work after Keychain update?

    After updating the Keychain with the latest update, all my internet programs keep on asking for permission to use the Proxy settings , almost every time I wake the computer from sleep. I don't think this was the case before the Keychain update.
    Anyone else?

    Here's a possible solution. Make sure that the "login" keychain and the username keychain do not lock automatically.
    Go to Keychain access, select the "login" keychain, then go to the "Edit" menu and click "Change Settings for Keychain 'login'". When this opens, UNclick the ticks in the two boxes about locking after 5 minutes, etc. Do the same thing for the username keychain.
    This SEEMS to be solving my elemental problem of constantly being asked for the Keychain password when opening Safari or checking for email in Mail.
    In addition, when you open Keychain Access, be sure that both the "login" and username keychains are manually clicked "open," that is, if you're computer is secure, as at home.

  • Adding users to groups

    Hi,
    can any one share documents/resources pertaining to how to create sap user groups in BOE.
    how to add groups to users.
    how to import sap users.
    etc

    Hi,
    You can find the product documentation here:
    http://service.sap.com/~form/sapnet?_SHORTKEY=01100035870000713358&_SCENARIO=01100035870000000202&
    Specifically, go to the "Integration for SAP Solutions" section and take a look at the Installation and Administration guide:
    https://websmp210.sap-ag.de/~sapidb/011000358700000559912010E/xi31_sp3_bip_sap_inst_en.pdf
    As far as adding users and groups to the system, this is down through the CMC.  The Business Objects Enterprise Administrators guide should help you with these tasks: 
    http://help.sap.com/businessobject/product_guides/boexir31SP3/en/xi31_sp3_bip_admin_en.pdf
    To add users/groups to the BOE system, you have to go into the CMC/Authentication section and click on the SAP tab.  In here, you configure your SAP system information and add the groups that you wish to import into BOE.  Once you add the groups through here, the user accounts and groups will be mapped in to the Users and Groups section of the CMC.  From here, you can treat them like any other group in the system.
    You add users to the SAP groups the same way you would for BW or any other SAP product.  If a new user is added to an SAP group that is imported into BOE, then that user will be able to logon to the BOE system.
    We also have many notes on these subjects. 
    thanks

  • Suddenly getting 404 error when adding user to group

    Hi,
    I have an OAM 10.1.4.0.1 instance that's been working fine.
    However, today, I noticed that when I tried to add a user to a group, when I am in the selector page and click a user, I then get an HTTP 404 error.
    I've searched all of the log files that I can find, and I can't see any error messages. The only thing that is showing an error in a log is the IIS that I have setup with WebGate for OAM Admin. I get a "404" error with a sc-win32-status or "3".
    I have restarted everything, and that still hasn't helped.
    Does anyone here know what might be causing this, or how to diagnose the problem?
    Thanks,
    Jim

    Hi,
    I'm answering my own question/problem here, but hopefully this info will help someone else.
    I was able to get adding users to groups working again. I found that after I cleared the cache in my browser (IE6), the "add user to groups" started working again, without the HTTP 404 error.
    In hindsight, I guess this kind of makes sense, because if you ever watch the URIs on the selector pages, they all look alike, so I'm guessing the IE would not send a full GET request, but the "content" was no longer valid on the OAM server, thus the 404 error.

  • Email Security Plug-in - Doesn't seem to work with right click or save and send

    I've searched the knowledge base but have not located the answer yet.
    We have the Encrypt Message plug-in installed to flag the email [SEND SECURE].  This works very well when in Outlook.  It does not seem to work when right clicking a file to send outside of Outlook or performing Save and Send from within Microsoft Office.  The add-in still shows and users are clicking it and the Send button but the emails are not going securely.  We are on Microsoft2010 on mostly XP machines.
    How can I get Encrypt Message to work in all instances?
    Thank you.

    Hi I'm running Addressbook and cannot clear previous entry easily when searching my data base of around 5,000 contacts. 
    I prefer to view in All contacts on a double page spread with details on the right page.  Searching doesn't seem to work correctly in this view.
    It's always the second search that is problematic.
    I've tried typing over and all it seems to do is confine the search to the the entries that have come up for the previous search.
    I've tried to use the x to clear the previous entry and then type the next search, same problem.  The only way seems to be to move from "All Contacts" to "Groups".  Then the searched name appears and I can return to All Contacts to see full details.
    Surely three key press' are not the way it's supposed to work?

  • I'm using iphoto9.1.3 but now it doesn't seem to work, whenever I try to open it, it just shows loading, but never loads. Can anybody help me with this ?

    I'm using iphoto9.1.3 but now it doesn't seem to work, whenever I try to open it, it just shows loading, but never loads. Can anybody help me with this ?    

    Option 1
    Back Up and try rebuild the library: hold down the command and option (or alt) keys while launching iPhoto. Use the resulting dialogue to rebuild. Choose to Rebuild iPhoto Library Database from automatic backup.
    If that fails:
    Option 2
    Download iPhoto Library Manager and use its rebuild function. This will create a new library based on data in the albumdata.xml file. Not everything will be brought over - no slideshows, books or calendars, for instance - but it should get all your albums and keywords back.
    Because this process creates an entirely new library and leaves your old one untouched, it is non-destructive, and if you're not happy with the results you can simply return to your old one. .

    Hi everyone,I'm having a problem with my iPhone 5 it's wifi doesn't seem to work.it started yesterday afternoon.anyone know what happened?? I'm using 6.0.2

    First thing to try is to reset your device. Press and hold the Home and Sleep buttons simultaneously ignoring the red slider should one appear until the Apple logo appears. Let go of the buttons and let the device restart. See if that fixes your problem.
    If that doesn't correct the problem Make an appointment at an Apple Store to have your device examined by a technician. Or contact Apple Support.

  • Bridge Offset Nulling Doesn't Seem to Work With SCC-SG24

    Does anyone know if the DAQmx "Perform Bridge Offset Nulling Calibration" vi works with the SCC-SG24 modules?  We have used our NI-9237 module in the past to acquire dual-channel load cell (thrust & torque) measurements, and calling that vi does a fine job of zeroing out the values before applying the load.  However, it doesn't seem to work when we try to take the same measurements using an SCC-SG24 module.
    We are able to zero the values manually, by using the nulling resistors and potentiometers in the SCC-SG24.  But, whether the nulling resistors are installed or not, we are not able to zero the values using the "Perform Bridge Offset Nulling Calibration" vi.  Running that vi does induce a significant offset in the values, but it is not the correct offset needed to bring the values to zero.  For example, with no load applied, a torque reading before running the vi may be +1090 in-lbs, and be "zeroed" to -465 in-lbs after running the vi.  Running the vi multiple times (to check repeatability) always brings us back to approximately -465 in-lbs.
    An additional issue (not sure if it's related or not) is that if we try to run this vi to offset just one of the channels in the task (such as just thrust, but not torque) it will still induce a small offset in the other channel, which doesn't seem right.
    I guess I'm not clear on whether the subject vi is performing an operation on the hardware, the software, or both, so I'm not sure whether the SCC-SG24 modules may not be compatible with this vi?
    Thanks for any help you can provide.

    Hello Dhruser1,
    I think that the DAQmx Perform Bridge Offset Nulling Calibration should work for the SCC-SG24 module.  Take a look at this article:  Removing Large Initial Offset for Load Cell or Strain Measurements with SCXI-1520 or PXI-4220 in particular it mentions that using this VI in addition to the auto zero can introduce an offset.  If you're doing both these is likely the cause.
    Also, when you specify specific channels using the channels input are you also setting the "skip unsupported channels to false?  If not this may be why it affects other channels.
    I hope this helps, and if not please feel free to post back with an update after trying these things.
    Cheers,
    Brooks

  • Siri doesn't seem to work with Find My Friends

    Siri doesn't seem to work with Find My Friends completely accurately. If I ask it where once of my friends is, it tells me it doesn't know, but shows that person in the response, twice, with their location. Anyone experiencing this?
    Also - I found a bug. If you dictate a note via Siri it will not sync with iCloud at all. If you manually update the note however after Siri dictates it will. It will also sync if you manually start a note and then use the microphone on the keyboard.

    Actually, I figured it out. For the person in question I had both [email protected] and [email protected] listed in their contact info.  When you look at them in Find My Friends see which one is highlighted and delete the other. Once I did that they only showed up once in Siri.

  • Annotations - InheritanceType.TABLE_PER_CLASS doesn't seem to work with GF

    Hi there,
    I'm using the toplink essentials jar file with a stand alone J2SE application. I'm using annotations for ORM with Toplink implementation
    What I want to achieve is to map the base class objects to one table, and sub class objects to a different table. Currently - both tables (and objects) have the exact same structure, but I use inheritence in order to identify where should the object be registered. Thus I'm trying to map an inhertiance using TABLE_PER_CLASS type.
    It doesn't seem to work:
    My classes look like this:
    Base class I want to map to REGION table:
    @Entity
    @Table(name="REGION")
    @Inheritance(strategy=InheritanceType.TABLE_PER_CLASS)
    public class Region implements BaseBusinessObj
    @Id
    @Column(name = "REGION_ID", insertable = false, updatable = true)
    @GeneratedValue(generator = "regionSeq")
    @SequenceGenerator(name = "regionSeq",
    sequenceName = "GSM_REGION_ID_SEQ", allocationSize = 1)
    private int m_regionId;
    @Column(name = "REGION_NAME")
    private String m_regionName;
    Subclass with exact same structure I want to map to GFR_REGION table which has the exact same database table structure as REGION:
    @Entity
    @Table(name="GFR_REGION")
    public class GfrRegion extends Region
    This doesn't work. The Toplink adds entities of the GfrRegion to the REGION table and does not recognize it should go to the GFR_REGION table.
    What am I doing wrong?
    Thanks,
    Michael

    Hi all,
    Any news about the support for TABLE_PER_CLASS in TopLink/EclipseLink ?
    The main question is what was the reason for making this an optional strategy for mapping in the specs ? Both OpenJPA and Hibernate have it and there are cases when this is usefull.
    From EclipseLink perspective, how difficult would be to add this ? I didn't have a chance yet to closely examine the codebase for EclipseLink, but some architecture diagrams with some design decisions explained would help to community to better understand the product and make improvements.
    Thank you,
    Mircea
