    Hi

    I am still using 10.15 (I wish I could go to work to pick up my copy os X.2 but I have no time at the moment aswell as having no money to get over there)

    I am getting the below error when trying to activate the Root user through the NetInfo Application, does anyone know if this is possible to do this using the Terminal Application?

    Thanks,
    Ensign

    What error are you getting?

    You need to authenticate NetInfo Manager in order to enable Root.

    In Terminal, try:
    sudo passwd root

    Use your password to authenticate, then type the new root password.
