Collection of assorted issues that came up deploying some OS 10.6 "Snow Leopard" iMacs.

  • Adobe Acrobat Crashes on OS X With Network Account - an alternative way of achieving this solution, since we have OS X Server, was to use MCX to automatically redirect the folders for network users:
    Action - deleteAndCreateSymblink
    Destination Folder Path - /Users/Shared/9.0_x86/

  • arch - "archived flag"
  • opaque - "opaque flag"
  • nodump - "nodump flag"
  • sappnd - "system append-only flag"
  • schg - "system immutable flag"
  • uappnd - "user append-only flag"
  • uchg - "user immutable flag"
