I've recently been playing about with the Messages app in ML and ML server.


I've got everything working manually, as in going to each machine, logging in as the user and adding their credentials to the Messages app.


I'm trying to automate this using profile manager, I've done simialr for Mail settings but the profile never succeeds. Always fails.


Removing the Messages component from the Profile makes everything work again.


Is this possible? I don't see how it could be any of the information that I am typing in the boxes that breaks it, I've been using %short_name% for the use names, this works for the Mail settings, could this be breaking it?
