Hello everyone.

 

I have installed Mavericks and everything went well.

I rebooted it this morning normally.

 

After connecting to my session (works well so far), Mavericks asks me the password of the keychain "Local elements".

Capture d’écran 2013-10-23 à 20.45.21.png

 

It asks me this for "Messages", "CalendarAgent", "accountsd", "AddressBookSourceSync", "com.apple.iCloudHelper.xpc", and "Keychain Agent".

I have absolutely no idea about this password and clicking on cancel doesn't change anything. Passwords keep being asked repeatedly.

 

Please tell me someone has an idea.

Many thanks.

    For those having issue with keychain asking for "Local Items" every time after upgrading to Mavericks, and not being able to unlock the keychain lock (asks again for the same unknown password)

     

    Don't even try to repair (it will not work) or Reset my Default Keychain (it will ask for the password).

     

    Fixes:

     

     

    • Did not try that yet but should work. Go to ~/Library/Keychain  and move all files to the trash.  Reboot your mac and keychain should give you a message of error, just click to create new keychain.
    • What i did and worked fine. Create a new user and log in with it. Go to~/Library/Keychain and copy all content to a USB Drive or even to /Users/Shared.  Log back to your old user (that is getting those annoying keychain password messages) and copy all the content you just backed up to the keychain folder. Reboot and when you get the message, choose create new keychain.

    All done

    Your login.keychain password is out of sync with the new iCloud keychain and needs to be re-sync'd.

     

    The new iCloud keychain is either called "Local items" if you don't have syncing enabled or "iCloud" if you enabled iCloud keychain sync.

     

    1. Open 'Keychain Access' Application
    2. Select the 'login' keychain from the keychains list
    3. Click the lock at the top to lock the login keychain
    4. Click the lock again to unlock the login keychainunlock.png
    5. After entering your login keychain password you should be presented with a dialog:reset.password.png
    6. Clicking the reset button will re-sync your login.keychain password with the iCloud keychain password.

     

    If everything from the above fails for whatever reason the last resort you can do the following:

    1. Open terminal
    2. cd ~/Library/Keychains
    3. ls   
      1. When you 'ls' here you will see a folder that contains a bunch of random number liks so:
      2. 94ED610F-DD96-4ECF-A2BC-7D2F8651A464  (this number is unique on each system)
    4. rm -rf 94ED610F-DD96-4ECF-A2BC-7D2F8651A464
    5. Reboot
    6. <when you log back in everything should be back to normal>

    After 48 hours of hair pulling, this worked! Nothing else did. I was concerned about deleting the files, but the computer was useless to me so, I took the chance. Thanks.

    Hi! guys all you have to do is go to system preferences then open icloud icon then reset your password.

    That will fix all the pop up and will never comeback or show up again.
