Domain user denied access to Safeguard for Privileged Passwords

If you add a directory user who has the "User must change password at next logon" option enabled in Active Directory, Safeguard for Privileged Passwords prevents that user from logging in. There are two ways to allow the directory user to log into Safeguard for Privileged Passwords successfully:

  • Have the directory user use his domain account to log in to an asset joined to Active Directory. When prompted he can change his password. This fulfills the "User must change password at next logon" requirement.

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 websites, 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 might 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.
