Following on from last weeks blog, here is another modification you can add to the login window.
This one is more useful for tech staff when trying to diagnose a problem or for helping a customer over the phone.
Execute the following command in Terminal:
sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.loginwindow AdminHostInfo HostName
Which will give you the following information by clicking on the top right hand corner clock.
(Click again to proceed to the next item):
-> Computer name (enter ‘HostName’)
-> Version of OS X installed and System Build (enter ‘SystemVersion’ or ‘SystemBuild’)
-> IP address (enter ‘IPAddress’)
