So I am trying to log into my server via server admin from a client.

When I try to connect to the server, after authenticating, I then get this dialog:

Server Admin wants to use the "PrivateEncryptedDatak" keychain.
Password:

No matter what password I enter, it does not work. I don't know what the password is. What is this dialog?

I see on the internet that the answer is to uninstall adobe air!
1) This can not be correct, is it?
2) I need adobe Air. VImeo upload uses it, adobe reader uses it....

Has anyone solved this issue? thank you

Mini Server, Mac OS X (10.6.3)

    No.

    ServerAdmin has the annoying feature of trying to unlock all of your keychains regardless of whether they are storing anything related to ServerAdmin. You can cancel this.

    As to what created that keychain and what is stored in it, have a look at it using /Applications/Utilities/Keychain Access.app.

    I actually hit cancel, and was able to move forward without this.

    I am not sure what you mean by:

    "As to what created that keychain and what is stored in it, have a look at it using /Applications/Utilities/Keychain Access.app."

    have a look at what? The key app, or the server admin? How do you do this?

    Thanks!

    "PrivateEncryptedDatak" is a keychain created by AIR apps to store passwords. If you're curious what passwords are stored in there, you can use the Keychain Access utility to have a look. It's located in the Utilities folder in the Application folder.
