Creating service admin user on OSX
When taking an Apple product to the Terp Store, it is critical that you create a Service Admin User on your computer before having it serviced. The technicians at the Terp Store require an admin user name and password, and if the pre-existing password is the same as your UMIACS domain login password, revealing it to the Terp Store technician would represent a security vulnerability. To remedy this, you must create a new temporary user account with administrator privileges that the Terp Store technicians can use to service your machine.
Creating the new account
- Make sure you are logged in to an administrator account on your MacBook
