Normally on first log for a user the following message comes up:


"The system was unable to unlock your login keychain"


Our users then click create keychain and go from there


Now however I am having the issue where this message comes up EVERY time they login and I cant work out how to stop this from happening.This happens from a clean install

    Open the Keychain Access utility (in the Applications > Utilities folder) and right-click the "login" keychain and choose the option to change the password for the keychain. Set this to be your login password, and see if that results in the system automatically logging in and unlocking the keychain. Additionally choose the option to set the keychain as default, if it is not already listed in bold text.

    Maybe a Keychain Reset might work.
