In some network configurations, you must enable integrated Preps on Mac client computers when you use SMB.

Prerequisites

To use the sudo command, ensure you have enabled the root user on your Mac client computer and you know its password. For more information, see http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1528.
Use this procedure only if you use SMB as your Mac client computer protocol and if you use integrated Preps on Mac client computers that are not in the same domain as the primary server. This prevents a Could not locate the PrepsPrinergy.cfg template file message from appearing.

  1. For all Mac OS X versions, add the Mac client computer to the same domain as the Prinergy primary server.
  2. For Mac OS X 10.7, 10.8, 10.9, 10.10 or 10.11, add the primary server to the hosts file of the Mac client computer:
    1. Log on to the Mac client computer with an administrator account.
    2. In Finder, click Go > Utilities.
    3. Double-click Terminal.
    4. In the Terminal dialog box, type sudo nano /etc/hosts
    5. If you are prompted for a password, type your password.
    6. Add the IP address of the Prinergy primary server in the following format:
      ip hostname
    7. Press Ctrl+X, press Y to save your changes, and press Enter to save the file in the /etc folder.
  3. For Mac OS X 10.4, add the primary server to the NetInfo Manager of the Mac client computer:
    1. Log on to the Mac client computer with an administrator account.
    2. In Finder, click Go > Utilities.
    3. Double-click NetInfo Manager.
    4. Click machines.
    5. From the Security menu, choose Authenticate, and type the password of the administrator account. If Deauthenticate is available, skip this step because you are already authenticated.
    6. From the Directory menu, choose New Subdirectory.
    7. In the lower pane, double-click new_directory, and type the name of the Prinergy primary server.
    8. From the Directory menu, choose New Property, double-click new_property, and type ip_address.
    9. Double-click new_value, and type the IP address of the Prinergy primary server.
    10. From the Domain menu, choose Save Changes, and click Update this copy.
  4. Quit NetInfo Manager.
