My Mac keychain password was lost

The keychain in Macintosh OS X is the Apple password management system. A keychain can store all your passwords for applications, servers, and web sites, or even sensitive information unrelated to your computer, such as credit card numbers or personal identification numbers (PINs) for bank accounts.

If you have added a Mac OS X system to Safeguard for Privileged Passwords, you may receive a message that says, The system was unable to unlock your login keychain. That is because Safeguard for Privileged Passwords automatically updates the account passwords on all managed systems based on the policies your Security Policy Administrator has configured, but it does not update the keychain password.

Password fails for Unix host

Some Unix systems silently truncate passwords to their maximum allowed length. For example, Macintosh OS X only allows a password of 128 characters. If an Asset Administrator creates a profile with an Account Password Rule that sets the password length to 136 characters, when Safeguard for Privileged Passwords changes the password for an account governed by that profile, the asset's operating system truncates the new password to the allowable length and does not return an error; however, the full 136-character password is stored in Safeguard for Privileged Passwords. This causes the following issues:


  • Check Password for that account will fail. When Safeguard for Privileged Passwords compares the password on the Unix host with the password in Safeguard for Privileged Passwords, they never match because the Unix host truncated the password generated by Safeguard for Privileged Passwords.


  • A user will not be able to log in to the Unix host account successfully with the password provided by Safeguard for Privileged Passwords unless they truncate the password to the allowable length imposed by the operating system.
