Apple Local Items Keychain (The Really Annoying Keychain Issue)

Just a quick reminder about resolving the super-annoying keychain issue on a user’s profile since it has come up a couple of times recently. This is the one where attempting to launch almost any application on OS X (all versions) generates a whole slew of popups asking them to unlock the Local Items keychain. It’s possible to just cancel through all of the windows and you’ll eventually get to whatever app you were trying to open, but it gets really old, really quickly.

You can find Apple’s official page documenting the fix here.

Alternatively, Mr. Dowd has converted it into a Word doc and put it up on sharepoint here.

Yes, I know the fix pages reference OS X Mavericks specifically, but the problem and fix really is the same across multiple versions of OS X.
