Ticket #32685 (closed defect: worksforme)
RealName account attribute missing from macports account
|Reported by:||bm55b@…||Owned by:||macports-tickets@…|
If you run /System/Library/CoreServices/Directory\ Utility and look at the "macports" account, you will notice that unlike every other account, this account is missing the "RealName" attribute. This causes interesting things with the buggy OSX Lion SMB server which shows a mysterious blank account has access to your file shares which you can not disable. The work around is to manually edit the account with "Directory\ Utility" and add RealName to something like "Mac Ports".
After that, to disable "macports" access to the shares, you need to set a password for the account to something random because you can't disable access w/o the password! Go figure...
