10.5: Keychain access after 10.5 archive/install
Authored by: wgscott on Nov 10, '07 04:04:54AM

I upgraded a second machine and my proposed fix didn't work at all. This has been a real annoyance. Sorry my hint isn't a good one.

Keychain confusion...
Authored by: ptwithy on Nov 10, '07 04:16:14AM

I hit this after and archive and install. Many apps were still looking for my 'ptw' keychain, although it seemed that I also had a 'login' keychain. In Keychain Access, there was still an entry for my 'ptw' keychain, but it was grayed out -- there was no file behind it. I deleted that, and all worked for a while.

Then I got the keychain update and my 'ptw' keychain was back. Now some apps appeared to be using my 'login' keychain and others using my 'ptw' keychain. I was pretty sure that all my passwords were correctly in my 'login' keychain, so I manually moved my 'ptw' keychain file to a safe backup (just in case) and then deleted that keychain using Keychain Access/File/Delete Keychain and telling it to delete the reference and the file.
