    I have a new MBR, would like to transfer all passwords and WiFi's from old one.
    In the keychains folder, I have 5 files:
    • login.keychain-db
    • login2.keychain-db
    • login3.keychain
    • login3.keychain-db
    • metadata.keychain-db

    I have transferred the first 4 files to a USB drive, renamed them, and added them to Keychain in the new MBR. When I go to list of WiFis in network preferences, I only see the one I connected to after installing the new mac. When I try to connect to a server using my FTP client, I get an error that the password is incorrect.

    The passwords and WiFis are there for sure, since when I look for them in the imported keychain, I see it's there (I actually took my FTP password from there and used it manually to connect to a server), however for some reason it is not "loaded" onto the new mac in a way that it is being used. I tried deleting and importing again, as well as restarting, nothing works.

    Any ideas?
