I run a lab of 20 iMacs, all running Mac OS 10.7.5(11G63) with ARD version 3.6.2. My server and all of the iMacs run Lion. I seem to have crossed something and now my root user is being controlled with the same preferences I have setup for my LDap users. Somehow, ARD has taken control of the root user, most notably the System Preferences. Is there a way around this problem?


For example - I have edited the preferences in Work Group Mangaer so that when a user logs on they only have access to "Sound" and "Universal Access".

- When I log on as root - the settings within System Preferences ares till being controlled by WGM.


Is there a solution?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.5)
