ok, I tried to change my administrator short name. I changed to folder first and then went to the netinfo manager to change the other things. First under users, I changed all the old_username stuff to new_username. That all worked. Then, I went to change the old_username in the different groups to the new_username. When I tried to do that, it told me that I didn't have permission to that. So I figured the heck with it and went back to users to change that back to my original username. Now it also tells me that I don't have permission enough to do that. So basically the short name that is an admin is not a user in the usernames. If I try to add him or change it so it is a username it says no permission. If I try to add the new name to the Admin it says no permission. Any Ideas?
