Hi,

Bought 3 new Mac Minis for our conference rooms. I set two up without much issue.

The third, for some reason, refuses to allow Control via ARD. I have dumped ARD prefs, reset SMC and PRAM.

I can Observe. I can copy clipboard. But I cannot copy files or control the machine. All boxes are checked.


Why would it faIl on one machine. Is there another plist somewhere I can kill?

Thanks,

Jeff

Tried that. Didn't work. But this did:

cmd-option-R restart, Reinstall Mac OS. It retains all settings and installs the OS clean (I always thought his would wipe the drive as part of the install, oh well, yay it doesn't).

ARD now controls fine.

Thanks,

Jeff
