I am currently trying to make a hidden user on Yosemite.

I have tried to follow tutorials from this site, however when I run the command sudo dscl . append /Groups/<real_name> GroupMembership <user_name> I get this error: /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.DirectoryServicesLocal.plist: No such file or directory.

I have also done the command sudo dscl . create /Users/hiddenuser IsHidden 1 as shown here: How to add hidden user, yet I get the same error.

How would I fix this? Is it as simple as running sudo touch /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.DirectoryServicesLocal.plist or is it more complicated then that?
