HomeApplemacos - Persisting outdated title of Mac throughout file switch

macos – Persisting outdated title of Mac throughout file switch


I am utilizing macOS Ventura 13.4.1.

Earlier than migrating to my present Mac desktop, I modified the title of its predecessor from “MyMac” to “MyMacOLD” after which did the migration from TimeMachine.

The brand new Mac is called “MyMac”.

But once I use file sharing from this new “MyMac” to a MacBook and switch information from “MyMac” to the MacBook utilizing a file comparability/switch app (particularly, VisualDiffer), every time I strive a comparability of corresponding folders on the 2 machines, I get a pop-up error “There was an issue connecting to the server “MyMacOLD”.

If I simply dismiss that pop-up, it pops up once more; dismissing it once more now permits the comparability of folders, and subsequent syncing through the app, to proceed.

The Mac’s SystemSettings > Basic > About reveals the title as “MyMac”

The scenario persists even after I used all of the steps proven at https://www.autodesk.com/help/technical/article/caas/sfdcarticles/sfdcarticles/Setting-the-Mac-hostname-or-computer-name-from-the-terminal.html that use the terminal command scutil to set the title to “MyMac” (with out the quotes, in fact), together with the restart.

Query: The place is that title “MyMacOLD” being picked up from, and the way can I repair it to be what my Mac is meant to be named, “MyMac”?
