  • 05/03/18--05:45: File paths in Emails PC/Mac
  • File paths in Emails PC/Mac
    posted by Fabrice Altman on May 3, 2018, 8:45 a.m. (1 day ago)

    Hello,

     

    We have a mixed environment Mac/PC.

    When an artist on a PC needs to point to a file or folder on our file server to somebody else on a Mac via Email,

    the use of paths becomes a bit tricky as obviously the format is different between the 2 platforms,

    especially as the default PC paths are relying on mapped drives.

     

    Just wondering if you guys have some solutions in place to make this more straight forward.

     

    Cheers,

    F.

    Is anyone doing devops at work and if so to which degree and how is it going for all involved?


    If you're not sure what devops is you very likely are not, but if you care to familiarize yourself: https://theagileadmin.com/what-is-devops/

    Mac's and Active Directory issues: Are we the only ones?
    posted by Daniel Cox on May 9, 2018, 12:53 p.m. (1 day ago)
    I'm the Active Directory Admin at my company. We have a mixed environment of Mac's, Windows (Servers and workstations), and Linux (Servers) all on Active directory. I am trying to find out if our heartache with Mac's is typical in such a mixed environment or if it is unusual and I need to do some thing to make it more stable. The big issue that we see is that the Macs seem to stop talking to AD and require a reboot to get them going again and utilizing the central authentication. However in more problematic cases we have to unbind and re-bind the Macs to AD to get things working again. Now I have had Windows machines in the past go dumb and need to be re-added to AD so I know it is possible but with the Macs it seems like every week at least a couple need this to get working again. As far as we can tell there is no network issues that are dropping connections (at least not for long enough for a human or monitoring to notice). Are these kind of things typical in such an environment? Is there anything I can do to help keep everyone happily talking to one another and improve everyone's experience? Any help or insight you may be willing to share would be apprciated.

    Mac's and Active Directory issues: Are we the only ones?
    posted by William Sandler on May 9, 2018, 2:45 p.m. (1 day ago)
    We have to reboot macs sometimes in order for the "network accounts are unavailable" message to go away. Luckily our Macs all have SSDs so a reboot isn't the end of the world but it's still annoying.

    Mac's and Active Directory issues: Are we the only ones?
    posted by Adam Barnett on May 9, 2018, 3:30 p.m. (1 day ago)
    We have had the same things. 

    Things I have noticed in the past is that the time on the Mac drifts even when we set it to use our ntp severs. 

    I am not sure how your dcs are setup but we have ours in round robin and for what ever reason a Mac will try and contact one in another site instead of the local one. ( I had to watch the traffic coming out of a Mac one day to find out ) 

    In the end I just wrote a script that will check thing AD binding and will just rebound when needed 

    The other option you could do is to restart launchd opendirectoryd which also fixes things.

    I never did get to the bottom of it and just came to the conclusion that OS X sucks with AD

    Mac's and Active Directory issues: Are we the only ones?
    posted by Zorion Terrell on May 9, 2018, 5:10 p.m. (1 day ago)

    What version of OSX? What Version of AD?

     

    I used to have issues with Macs back in the day but for the past couple years things have been stable for the ones we have (10ish).

     

    We have multiple AD sites Globally under a single domain and the Macs dont seem to have issues there either. Do you have all your subnets defined in AD Sites and Services? Ive seen that not be configured which clients need in order to ensure they connect to the servers in the correct site.

    Mac's and Active Directory issues: Are we the only ones?
    posted by Jeremy Webber on May 13, 2018, 7 p.m. (1 day ago)
    We use Macs against AD without any issues (that Im aware of).

    We always set up the Mac accounts as mobile accounts, this provides a useful amount of decoupling from network dependencies, while still using AD authentication. My own desktop is an iMac which is always on the network but I still find the mobile account very useful as I get a local home directory (we use network home directories for our UNIX devices, and Linux and Mac can fight over some folders in the home directory).

    To create mobile accounts automatically there is an option Create mobile account at login in the Active Directory edit pane, under Options, in Directory Utility.

    I used to see the clock drift on MacOS 10.12 (and maybe earlier?) I noticed that if I opened the Date and Time system preferences that the system would catch up. I always caught it before the clock had drifted 10 minutes which I think is the AD tolerance for clock drift. I no longer have this problem in 10.13.

    The Macs use RFC2307 POSIX attributes correctly, except for NIS automount maps. The user accounts are kerberised correctly, so Kerberos single sign on works as expected in Safari.

    HTH,
      Jeremy

    Check the system clock and set it to sync with the AD server or another NTP source that AD syncs with.  If the clock drifts too much youll have that problem.

    For years Ive seen Macs come up with Network Accounts Unavailable on the login screen, and totally ignored it. Nine times outta ten I can still login and auth against AD. So I would say dont trust that little red dot. 
    But Ive also seen Macs go stupid with their binding. It just happens randomly and occasionally they need to be rebound. Not too often, mind you, but enough that its  noticeable. Once you rebind everything is fine.
    I did some investigating once and found a correlation between many of these instances and the ADs process of resetting the machine password. Apparently there can be a communication issue in that process between the AD and Mac where the Mac never gets the updated pw, it expires. Mind you correlation does not equal causation, and thats as far as I ever got.

    Make sure your DNS is good, use mobile accounts, and dont forget to offer your firstborn as a sacrifice to the Apple Gods!

    We use Macs against AD without any issues (that Im aware of).

    We always set up the Mac accounts as mobile accounts, this provides a useful amount of decoupling from network dependencies, while still using AD authentication. My own desktop is an iMac which is always on the network but I still find the mobile account very useful as I get a local home directory (we use network home directories for our UNIX devices, and Linux and Mac can fight over some folders in the home directory).

    To create mobile accounts automatically there is an option Create mobile account at login in the Active Directory edit pane, under Options, in Directory Utility.

    I used to see the clock drift on MacOS 10.12 (and maybe earlier?) I noticed that if I opened the Date and Time system preferences that the system would catch up. I always caught it before the clock had drifted 10 minutes which I think is the AD tolerance for clock drift. I no longer have this problem in 10.13.

    The Macs use RFC2307 POSIX attributes correctly, except for NIS automount maps. The user accounts are kerberised correctly, so Kerberos single sign on works as expected in Safari.

    HTH,
      Jeremy

    Check the system clock and set it to sync with the AD server or another NTP source that AD syncs with.  If the clock drifts too much youll have that problem.

    For years Ive seen Macs come up with Network Accounts Unavailable on the login screen, and totally ignored it. Nine times outta ten I can still login and auth against AD. So I would say dont trust that little red dot. 
    But Ive also seen Macs go stupid with their binding. It just happens randomly and occasionally they need to be rebound. Not too often, mind you, but enough that its  noticeable. Once you rebind everything is fine.
    I did some investigating once and found a correlation between many of these instances and the ADs process of resetting the machine password. Apparently there can be a communication issue in that process between the AD and Mac where the Mac never gets the updated pw, it expires. Mind you correlation does not equal causation, and thats as far as I ever got.

    Make sure your DNS is good, use mobile accounts, and dont forget to offer your firstborn as a sacrifice to the Apple Gods!

    We have to reboot macs sometimes in order for the "network accounts are unavailable" message to go away.  Luckily our Macs all have SSDs so a reboot isn't the end of the world but it's still annoying.

    Permission issues Deleting folders on a SAN on a Mac but not Windows with the same AD account
    posted by Daniel Cox on May 14, 2018, 5 p.m. (1 day ago)
    We have just had an issue that we have in the past and I figured I should check if this is a known issue or if there is something we can do better. All our systems are on Active directory; Windows Workstations, Mac Workstations, Server, and Storage. We utilize AD to manage permissions for the centralized storage. We had one of our Domain Admins try to delete a folder he had created for some install files he needed a few months back. When he tried on a Mac he got a message saying he did not have permission to do so. I checked and confirmed that the folder, subfolders, and files all were inheriting the permissions for Domain Controllers to have Full Control. I checked on a different Mac as myself and was getting the same permission issue. When I went to the same location on a PC I was able to easily delete the folder and things within without an issue. Is there any reason this should be given that both systems were using the same credentials? The only odd thing about the deletion was that it removed the files, then it took a few moments to remove the sub-folder, and then I had to issue another delete to remove the main folder. Any thoughts on this or similar experiences would be useful as issues like this are causing our users to be less proactive about cleaning up after themselves and is causing a lot of wasted space which we would very much not to be full of junk.

    If you pre order the phone they'll send you a 600 dollar TV, its "only" 42 inches but 4k, making it a nice computer display. :) I'm sure the phone alone will be 1200 or so...

    Setting Environment Variables on OSX - Best Practices
    posted by Mike Moss on May 18, 2018, 1:25 p.m. (2 days ago)

    Hello,

     

    Im curious what people are doing and what people consider best practices for setting env variables on OSX. Specifically, we are a mixed environment of PC's and OSX. The PC's we just go through GPO - nuff said.

    In OSX, up until now we have been using a local login script (.command) file that sets env variables using the launchctl setenv command. We would like to change this to something a little more elegant that does not use the user's login items feature.

     

    All our machines are OSX 10.12 and it seems launchd.conf is not supported in anything higher than 10.10 - that option is no go.

    We also would prefer this to be module. When we were first looking at the idea of the .bash_profile, we wanted that to source two .sh scripts, one for our development team and another for IT. Each dept can make changes as necessary without disturbing the other. However, ive had isses with this set up due to the .bash_profile running everytime Terminal is launched - which is by design of the bash_profile.

     

    So, what are some other ways? Im curious to hear what others have set up.

     

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Setting Environment Variables on OSX - Best Practices
    posted by Jean-Francois Panisset on May 18, 2018, 6:20 p.m. (2 days ago)
    Assuming you are talking about environment variables that control various aspects of your pipeline, I would personally shy away from setting environment variables at the "system" level for the following reasons:

    - It's weird and ever changing on macOS (as per your post)
    - It's even weirder on Windows, where GPOs, the registry and roaming profiles interact in weird and wonderful ways so that the set of environment variables you end up with and what they are set to is at best a stochastic process (and I'm not convinced that quantum probabilities aren't also involved). I just spent hours trying to figure out how my profile was ending up with some environment variables we thought we had eradicated years ago.
    - You need a process to keep all your machines updated, and make sure they all have the right values (see comments about Windows).
    - By definition you can only have a single set of variables for all users and all projects on a system.

    For those reasons (and others) many studios use some kind of layered bootstraping setup where users login with as vanilla an environment as possible, and you then "start the pipeline" which creates a context with the right set of environment variables with multiple levels of possible override (show, shot, discipline...), either through running a script which creates a terminal shell with the right environment, running a GUI, or both. Python and something like GitBash / Cygwin on Windows (native bash on Linux / macOS) makes it portable and feasible to support all 3 environments.

    Sorry, I realize that doesn't answer your immediate question at all...

    Just ordered my G7 phone,  making the move from Apple to Android (not without little concern I'll admit). 

    So for the new phone and the 42 inch 4k smart TV it ended up costing me 200 dollars upfront  and a bump in my bill by 12 dollars a month, on a 2 year commitment.

    That 12 dollars includes:

    1. adding a second phone to my account (moving my kids phone onto my account)
    2. shared 12 gigs per month (up from my current 3 gigs)
    3. and a few other account perks (free calls within NA etc...)


    Over the 24 month commitment I'll give them an extra 288 dollars than I currently am,  so you could say I'm paying about 500 dollars for the newest phone on the market,  a 4k TV, and the 'bump' in services.   Seems ok.

    I've never ran over my 3 gig a month limit in the last 2 or 3 years,  so having 12 seems crazy,  but we'll see what the kid chews up..
