esmith Posted March 30, 2010 Share Posted March 30, 2010 Some of our clients are requiring that we adhere to specific security protocols to continue to do business with them. One of the requirements is for Mac users to have separate network accounts that tie into Active Directory. (Currently, we have a single machine-based, local profile for each workstation that all users use generically.) As a precursor to this change, I have begun testing running multiple LOCAL profiles on a Mac desktop. What I found initially was that Acrobat 9.x (installed under machine account with admin privileges) would not run under a new profile (also with admin privileges). As a test, I uninstalled Acrobat and all plug-ins (FP, PitStop, and CrackerJack), then reinstalled just the main Acrobat software. This DID allow me to run Acrobat under BOTH admin-level profiles. Next, I installed FP 6.2P1a. I was able to run Acrobat under the user profile that FP was installed on, but Acrobat would NOT open on the other profile. (Note that I did not install the other software plug-ins -- just FP.) When I went back and UN-installed FP and tried to launch Acrobat (again with no plug-ins) I still could NOT launch it under the secondary profile. I'm assuming the original FP install had modified the Acrobat app in some way. We are running OS X 10.6.2 on a desktop Intel Mac. I found an old thread that discussed a similar scenario to my issue here. In that thread, Dan suggested that FP should work under all profiles assuming it was installed with an admin account. That is NOT the case for me. Can anyone confirm this problem, or offer a solution? We have a finite time window for rolling out network accounts, and need some kind of option for variable workflows!
