As you mentioned, smbutil lookup will resolve the name to an IP address: $ smbutil lookup qx-2000 Got response from 10.0.1.21 IP address of qx-2000: 10.0.1.21 We can extract the IP address from this output: $ smbutil lookup qx-2000 2>&1 | tail -n 1 | cut -d : -f 2 10.0.1.21 Then we can use that in our argument to ping: $ ping $(smbutil lookup ...

Are you using Windows 7/8 or XP? I know that when I at home switched from XP to Window 7, I needed to change the windows workgroup settings... It sounds like you don't have the proper workgroup assigned.

OP says that a "virtual machine" starts. One wonders if it is a startup item and that just loads immediately on startup. If so holding the SHIFT key at startup should disable any startup items. Failing that the OPTION key at startup that Alistair mentioned will allow you to choose a boot partition and boot into Mac O/S if it is installed. Note that it is ...

Hold down the Option key (⌥) when your Mac starts. That should take you to the startup selection screen. Hopefully it'll show you an icon for Windows and another icon for OSX. http://support.apple.com/en-us/HT1310 If it doesn't then you might need to install OSX from scratch. If your Mac is fairly recent you can do this from the Internet directly. ...

You can change the default location for the main mp3 file storage for iTunes, but not [easily] the location of the database files. It is far simpler in the long term to leave the database in its default location - C:\Users\[your name]\Music\iTunes This is also a folder you should recover from your old machine & transfer to the new one, otherwise you ...

You could try, the windows only application, MediaMonkey (mediamonkey.com). This may help you as it used to be able to get around the itunes media controls... I have not used it for a while, so it may have changed (or Apple may have changed something to stop MediaMonkey from working as it used to). With MediaMonkey you may be able to save the music already ...

The (fixed) Pre-Installation Environment (boot.wim) of your Windows_7.iso doesn't contain the necessary drivers to use the USB3-interface of your Early 2013 Macbook Retina. To circumvent limitations (new drivers, new hardware) Microsoft uses the $WinPEDriver$-feature to provide drivers at installation time. Apple Boot Camp uses this method to provide the ...

When you reboot your machine, hold down Option to bring up the boot menu. You should (and I say 'should' because it may not be the case with your particular build of the Windows installer image) have a few options there, the normal Macintosh HD and Recovery 10.x, and then a couple of Windows options. One should be a regular BIOS link to the Windows ...

I know this is an old exchange, but it still works. I forked the code to show an example of converting a network drive path to an SMB protocol with a server IP address. This is helpful if windows users have a lettered network drive such as W:\a\really\tedious\folder\path https://gist.github.com/jberg412/036484376a56f09e1a4a Thanks for the original script ...

⌘` (command + backtick) definitely works, on both the old (’09) Pages and the new. ⌘< and ⌘> (remembering to hold down shift to get < and > on my keyboard) zooms in/out on both versions. If ⌘<,⌘> used to switch windows for you, you must have redefined them, either in System Preferences→Keyboard→Shortcuts or in some third-party macro utility ...

It looks like Pages overwrites the command + < shortcut to zoom out the view even though that's the default shortcut for moving focus between windows on a German keyboard. You can go in to System Preferences -> Keyboard -> Shortucts to redefine that shortcut in Pages. Click App Shortcuts, click the + button, select Pages from the Application list, ...

I was able to do this with Power ISO on Windows but it cost me $29.99 -- I created an ISO from the original install DVD and then went to tools => Create Bootable USB...

I had the same problem and I HAVE THE SOLUTION. The problem is that when you install Windows with bootcamp it is creating a Logic Volume Group. What you need to do is delete the Logical Volume Group. Very similar to if you have ever undone a manual fusion drive. Bust out terminal: diskutil coreStorage list Copy the Logical Volume Group ID diskutil ...

BetterTouchTool (blog.boastr.net) does just this. I find it very convenient to use with a trackpad: by tapping in different parts of the trackpad I can snap windows to the corresponding region of the screen, one of the most useful features of BetterTouchTool (but it has many many more, check it out!)

Depending on your technical inclination, you might want to try Spectacle, or install (using the terminal) something like Mjolnir.

Office:Mac 2011 only supports add-ins that were developed in VBA. Office:Mac 2008 does not support add-ins at all. A new version of Office:Mac is slated for release in 2015, there have been no announcements as of this writing (December 2014) whether Microsoft will support additional methods of developing add-ins in the new version of Office:Mac. For ...

If you are truly dual booting (using Boot Camp) you will find your battery life better on OS X than on Windows. However, when you boot into OS X, you won't suffer any ill effects from having a separate Windows partition sitting idle. If you opt to run Windows in a Virtual Machine (using, for example, Parallels Desktop, VMWare Fusion, or Virtualbox), you ...
