AFS for OS X Tiger
This page will assist you in installing OpenAFS 1.4.1 and configuring it to allow you access to your AFS files on Mac OS X 10.4. This process requires you to use Terminal and make changes as root, and also to use NetInfo Manager to make changes to users and groups. You will need administrator access to make these changes. Do NOT attempt this process if you are not comfortable with changing file permissions or system settings.
If you need assistance with installing and configuring OpenAFS, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- In order to AFS to work properly, the short name of your OS X user account must be identical to your unityID. It is not possible to change the short name of your account if it is not correct.
- You must have administrator access to the machine to install OpenAFS and make the changes in Terminal and NetInfo Manager.
- Download OpenAFS 1.4.1 from here. Start the installer and install the program to your machine.
- Restart your machine after the installation.
- Download the following two files to your desktop (files created and provided by Jason Corley):
- Open Terminal and use the command "sudo su -" and your admin password to change to root.
- As root, run openafs.sh. If you cannot run it, open openafs.sh in TextEdit and copy/paste the contents into the Terminal window.
- Next, perform the following two commands in Terminal:
- cp kerberos_init.sh /bin
- chmod 755 /bin/kerberos_init.sh
