10.5: Keychain access after 10.5 archive/install
Authored by: jcbeckman on Nov 09, '07 02:46:09PM

This happened to me on 10.4. I copied all the entries from one keychain to the other to get around it.

10.5: Keychain access after 10.5 archive/install
Authored by: pdonovan on Nov 09, '07 04:07:02PM
Apple have a Knowledgebase article about this problem at

It only occurs for keychains created in 10.2.8 or earlier.

It seems that at some point since 10.1 (when I created my account), Apple switched the default user keychain from being named after your loginname to just being called 'login.keychain'.

I think it's better to rename your keychain to login.keychain rather than carrying on using yourloginname.keychain in case the same problem occurs in the future.

You can also use Keychain Access's Edit->Keychain List to select which keychains should be used.
