Today when i turned on my ibook and the mac OS 9.2 was starting an error came up saying " Wrong Version of cache file" "continue" or "stop". Either one i hit brings me an another box saying "Unknown problem # 23045...Searching for the Macintosh Management Server" and asks if i know the administrator password to enter it. and i never set a password so i dont know what it is. Keeps checking name information... then shuts off.. Thanks for the help

I moved you to the Apple Collectors forum, because anyone on MR who has much recent experience with using OS 9.2 is probably going to be someone who hangs out here.... best of luck.

Hi Jim,

I'm not entirely sure about the "wrong cache file" alert, but the other error tells me that this machine was set up as an OS 9 client to an OS X server. It is trying to connect and cannot.

Was the iBook working fine previously? Are you able to boot from your install CD, or with the extensions turned off?

This machine has had Macintosh Manager Client installed. It allows you to boot from the OS on your Mac's own hard drive, but your user documents are located on a server.

The error you're seeing is telling you that your computer cannot locate the internet address of the Macintosh Manager Server (of course you don't have one!). :rolleyes:

I'm not familiar with the Macintosh Manager Client so I'm not sure if it can be un-installed without the original Macintosh Manager Discs.

Some articles that may help:

Error 23045

Troubleshoot Macintosh Manager Client Login.

This Apple Mailing List thread seems to indicate that you can't remove Mac Manager 2 but instead need to remove V2 extensions and control panels and prefs then install v1.4.1 which allows selection of Multiple Users local folders.

Ultimately, the simplest solution is to erase the HD and install a clean system. Backup anything you DO need!

Thanks for the input in looking more into it now. But yes the ibook was working perfectly fine for a long time with no problems and just recent these problems started occuring. I would use the installation disc that came with it but over the year it has been lost : (.
