View Full Version : services requiring passwords "stored in a less secure manner"

Jul 23, 2011, 10:17 AM
Just installed Lion Server, when looking at my Accounts, my users have a yellow /!\ symbol on them. Opening the users properties it shows me "This user is not configured to access some services. Fix..." Choosing "Fix..." tells me this interesting piece of information:

"Some services require user passwords to be stored in a less secure manner. Enter the password for (user) to enable this mode for the user"

Any ideas on what this message is referring to? What service are they talking about? The only services I have enabled are VPN and File Sharing.

This has to be one of the most uninformative security messages I've ever seen.

Many thanks
