    how do I find the administrator name is 10.7?

    You can use reset password utility to find out the names of the users.
    You are not going to rest password here.
    Reset Password starting from Recovery HD
    Start the computer,then press and hold down command and R keys to start into recovery partition.
    When you see the Apple logo, release the keys.
    Wait until  OS X Utilities window shows up.
    Move the mouse to the menubar at the top and click "Utilities", then select "Terminal"
    from the drop down.
    Terminal window will appear.
    Type in   resetpassword   and press enter on the keyboard.
    Leave the Terminal window open.
    Reset Password Utility window will open with Macintosh HD selected.
    Select the user account from the popup menu box.
    Click inside the box and that should reveal the names.
    Stop here. Close windows and quit all apps and restart.
    Finder > Macintosh HD > Users
    You can find the shortnames there.

  • How do I find the image name and media_link for an ubuntu image in the Gallery?

    I am trying to create VM using Python API.  
    I have a custom Linux image:
    image_name = 'cloudN-Azure-20150205-os-2015-02-05'
    media_link = 'https://portalvhds10ssz63zgvb9g.blob.core.windows.net/vhds/cloudN-Azure-20150205-os-2015-02-05.vhd'
    When I used this image to create VM, it failed.
    I would like to use the ubuntu 1204 image in the Gallery.
    How do I specify the image_name and media_link in my Python code?  Basically, where and how do I find the image name and media_link for an image in the Azure image Gallery?
    Thanks in advance...

    hi sir,
    Did you try to use "List OS Image"? we can get the property form the results:
    result = sms.list_os_images()
    for image in result:
    print('Name: ' + image.name)
    print('Label: ' + image.label)
    print('OS: ' + image.os)
    print('Category: ' + image.category)
    print('Description: ' + image.description)
    print('Location: ' + image.location)
    print('Affinity group: ' + image.affinity_group)
    print('Media link: ' + image.media_link)
    print('')
    Please try it. Any questions or it doesn't work, please let me know.
    Regards,
    Will

  • How do I reset the "administrator" name and password - the one that I use when I first log on? Thanks

    When I first turn on the computer (MacBook Pro) I am required to type in a password.  How do I change that username and password?  Thanks

    ds store wrote:
    Reboot with the installer disk that comes with the computer, you need to hold c while booting, under the second or third screen is a menu option to reset the password.
    This is necessary if you don't remember the password. However if you know it and just wnat to change it, go to system preferences, accounts and then unlock it by typing in the admin name and password (the current one). Now click on the admin account on the side and you can change the name by typing one in the full name: box and the password by clicking the change password button.

  • After a year of no use and a fully discharged battery, my MacBook Pro refuses to accept the administrator name and the password. How can I reset these?

    After a year of no use and a resulting fully discharged battery, the MacBook Pro refuses to recognize the administrator name and password (both). It has system OS X 10.6 which can not be upgraded without the information. How can I reset or reistall the administrator name and password?

    Thanks to all who responded. You are all absolutely correct. However, this Ipad was a gift to my wife who was dying of cancer in the hospital and wanted some entertainment. So I started it out with her Apple ID. After she passed away I moved from Sacramento to Austin and eventually proceeded to get the Apple ID changed from my wife's to mine. Meanwhile when she was in the hospital I opened an Itunes account in my name to buy movies for her. That was the first mistake.
    Then during the move to Austin I lost track of the IPAD and later found it and tried to use support but could not remember the proper ID. Later the folks at the Apple store helped me create a new and novel Apple ID that was unfortunately unlike any other.
    The botom line is that I am stuck with three Apple IDs and three passwords. I am told by Apple there is nothing they can do about this as IDs cannot be changed or destroyed. I can quit using them or start a new account but when I try to do that the system keeps remembering too many things from the past and resists.
    Even if I sold this Ipad and bought a new one, the system memory is still there.
    I think the real problem is that destop and laptop computers are totally owned by an individual and that individual can control logins and passwords to his liking. IPADs and similar Apple products are different in that the corporation has built in their own intrusion detection schemes because of the relation to Itunes.
    One thing I thought about is to open a new Itunes account pretendding to be a new customer with my regular Apple ID. Perhaps I could do the same with Apple Support.
    Thanks for your comments.

  • How do I change the administrator name and password?

    I am trying to put some needed applications on my G3 Lombards and it won't let me because the previous administrator of the computer failed to erase all of his info before I bought it.
    How do I change the administrator name and password?
    This is the most ridiculous thing I have ever seen yet.
    Please help. FAST
    Edited by an Apple Discussions Host

    Robert:
    May I strongly urge you to get a set of installer CDs. They will come in handy as you need them for much more than just installing the OS. From time to time, e.g. you may need to boot from the installer disk to Repair Disk (you can Repair Disk Permissions from Disk Utility on the HDD, but to Repair Disk, you must boot from a different volume). And if you had installer CDs changing the password and creating a new Admin Account would be a breeze.
    You can get universal installer disks at applerescue. Another option in your situation is to do a complete re-install. That will not only enable you to create your own admin account, but it will automatically change the computer short name. However, for that you need installer disks.
    Meanwhile, <a href=""http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=121786&tstart=0>here is another article that should help.
    Good luck.

    Hi,
    unfortunately, there is currently no official way to change the cluster name used by Oracle Clusterware after the installation.
    However, finding the cluster name and some other useful tips are provided in ML Note 378037.1 - "How To Install Oracle 10g Grid Agent On Rac", which says:
    Note: To find out the value of your CLUSTER_NAME from CRS (OCR), do the following from the CRS_HOME:
    cd $CRS_HOME/bin
    +./cemutlo -n+
    or+
    +./ ocrdump+
    which will create a text file called OCRDUMPFILE
    open that file and look for this entry
    +[SYSTEM.css.clustername]+
    ORATEXT : crs_cluster
    In this case, "crs_cluster" is the cluster name.
    In order to distinguish different clusters that you have installed with the same name in your EM Grid Control environment,
    please, check ML Note 283147.1 - "Understanding RAC Target Discovery in EM Grid Control 10.1"
    Hope that helps. Thanks,
    Markus
