I have the MM server version with Snow Lepard 10.6 OS X

Was given to e a present and sowly getting it into a HTPC for the home. I know the unit is a server and understand why when certain things require setting it throws up the login and password box but in my application it is becoming a PITA.

I don't have security or restricted access issue here and would like not to be asked to continually throw in login and password.

Is there a server guru here that can guide me through turning this off???

Thanks and regards,

Fleetz

Go to Apple Menu: System Preferences

Personal: Security

Uncheck "Disable automatic login"

Enter your password (hopefully for the last time!)

For the server enabling automatic login has mixed results. Once the user begins utilizing any of the server services (firewall,etc) , automatic login may be enabled but is overridden.

I haven't found which service or setting in particular triggers this, but I need what I currently have enabled, so I live with logging in when the server restarts.
