Determining User Type

Say-Ho Tan updated March 18, 2010 at 5:08 PM

To determine what type of user account you have on your computer, open up a terminal window and type or paste in the following:

dscl . -readall /Users | grep -ic LocalCachedUser

Then hit "return".

This command will return a number to you. If that number is "0" then you have a Local account. If that number is anything else, you have a Mobile account.
