I have a work computer that has lots of certs and configuration on it that I would like to keep.
How do I remove all traces of a user on a Mac without formatting?
I've updated Mac OS by signing in with my account, but when trying to update the Mac OS apps only, as I've uninstalled everything but them, it prompts me for the password of the previous user. I'm signed in with my account in iCloud system preferences. No other accounts.
I haven't gone into the root structure and deleted all folders but I've deleted the user's files.
So I'm wanting to completely blow away any remnants of the user.
There is significant certificate and network configuration that I would rather leave in tact then format and start from scratch. Can this be resolved through terminal. I can kill the OS if needs be trying this and start from scratch but the process would be much longer. Rather give it a try.
