10.4: AirPort and System.keychain password solution
Authored by: scott.gardner on Mar 24, '06 12:23:07AM

I am having a new and similar issue with the Keychain and AirPort or Ethernet mobile user connections to OS X Server. The "Mac OS X wants to use your Keychain..." dialog box pops up after attempting to log in post restart/power-on. Entering the Keychain password (identical to login password) facilitates successful login. I tried this hint, didn't work. Any ideas?

Which keychain is being accessed? It is possible to store these passwords in the login keychain if the system keychain is no longer available.

Once you know the exact keychain the item is in, double click on it in Keychain Access and an info window will open for it. Click on the Access Control tab and see what options are set for it. Maybe the "Ask for Keychain password" checkbox is checked.

The system was requesting access to login.keychain. Keychain Access was acting erratically (e.g., duplicating keychains, removing one keychain when I selected to remove a different one, repetitively prompting for password authentications, etc.). So, I zapped my user account (an OS X Server mobile account) and restarted. Good as new.
