OK, long story, compressor 4, I'm on 10.6.8, set up a cluster WITHOUT ANY PASSWORDS but  when I try to administer cluster qadministrator has set an admin and user password??? I didn't set any passwords at all, I'm the only one in my studio. I can't get past this at all.

Trawled the posts and found d 'similar' posts but not the same, I'm  getting fried looking for an answer. Anyone got a clue

Mac OS X (10.6.8), Mac Pro 10.6.8

    I haven't done a search but I believe some users who had similar issues solved them by repairing permissions in Disk Ultility and/or trashing preferences. Try DIgital Rebellion's tool.

     

    Good luck.

    Have you tried changing the passwords in the Security pane?

    Not surprised. It was a bit of a hail Mary pass. Just double-checking…you have repaired permissions in Disk Utilities, right?

     

    If so,I think you're looking at reinstallingg Compressor/Qmaster, which really isn't all that problematic. Here is a link to Apple's troubleshooting steps and in it they explain how to delete the Compressor-related files.

     

    Good luck.

    Underrstand the reluctance but I if  Compressor Repair and Apple's troubleshooting steps didn't do it, I think your options are to re-install or do that Compressor 3 work-around.

     

    To uninstall, you can download FSCRemover…it works with Compressor 4 (although I have never used to remove C4).

     

    Good luck. Let us know how it works out for you.

    Not to belabor the point, but why do you need to re-install anything other than Compressor? We're still talking C4…right?

    Hi Peter.  Never had that with selective installs. But you know the idiocyncacies of your system a lot better than I ever could. In case you ever want to – or are forced to – put FCS and the new apps on a single, non-partioned drive, the Legacy apps should get installed first, then the new versions (X, M5, C4) downloaded. Over thepast year, two machines, two FCS versions, all the "new pro app" downloads and updates, three OSX versions, 2 clusters here and no problems that I can attribute to conflicts. YMMV.

     

    Good luck.

    QuickClusters "pretend" to have a password but don't actually...they just lock you out from customizing them that way. If you switch to a cluster you manage yourself you can set your own password etc. QuickClusters also put up a "shared" volume on your desktop...don't eject that if you want things to work right.

     

    At least this is what I've found so far.

    i can't see the shared volume created by the quick clusters. Compressor is horrible. I managed to get one processing done over the network and it never worked again due to the locked services, asking for passwords. Has anyone used this reliably?
