One application coming up with an “You don't have permission to use the application” error



I've got a Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard Server Open Directory Master
with a user who's getting Mobility & Application managed preferences
from a group (the only group they're a member of). The workstation is
also running Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard, when the user logs in and
tries to run our primary application which they're explicitly allowed
to run (via the group's preferences), it says "You don't have
permission to use the application 'Blah'".

Now, the application is added to the group's list of always allowed
applications, unsigned (so a minor difference in application version
or file contents shouldn't disallow it). It even lives in a
subdirectory of /Applications which is in the list of folders to allow
applications.

I've run into this when logging this user into new workstations and
the following usually works:

    1. Log them out
    2. Remove the following files from their mobile home folder on the
workstation: /Library/Managed\ Preferences/, ~/.FileSync,
~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.finder.plist, and
~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.MCX.plist.
    3. Remobe the following files from their network home folder on
the server: ~/.FileSync, ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.finder.plist,
and ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.MCX.plist.
    4. Log them back in on the workstation.

However, this no longer resolves the issue.

Their Home Sync preferences are set (on the group) to sync ~, but not
the following files (manually, at login, and at logout... no
background sync here):

    ~/.SymAVQSFile
    ~/NAVMac800QSFile
    ~/Library
    ~/.FileSync
    ~/.account

Their Preferences Sync preferences are set (also on the group) to sync
~/Library & ~/Documents/Microsoft User Data, but not the following
files (also manually, at login, and at logout... no background sync):

    ~/.SymAVQSFile
    ~/.Trash
    ~/.Trashes
    ~/Documents/Microsoft User Data/Entourage Temp
    ~/Library/Application Support/SyncServices
    ~/Library/Application Support/MobileSync
    ~/Library/Caches
    ~/Library/Calendars/Calendar Cache
    ~/Library/Logs
    ~/Library/Mail/AvailableFeeds
    ~/Library/Mail/Envelope Index
    ~/Library/Preferences/Macromedia/
    ~/Library/Printers
    ~/Library/PubSub/Database
    ~/Library/PubSub/Downloads
    ~/Library/PubSub/Feeds
    ~/Library/Safari/Icons.db
    ~/Library/Safari/HistoryIndex.sk
    ~/Library/iTunes/iPhone Software Updates
    IMAP-*
    Exchange-*
    EWS-*
    Mac-*
    ~/Library/Preferences/ByHost
    ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.dock.plist
    ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.sitebarlists.plist
    ~/Library/Application Support/4D
    ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.MCX.plist
    ~/.FileSync
    ~/.account

Even with ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.MCX.plist prevented from
syncing during a Preferences Sync, it still seems to show up in the
network home on the server frequently.

Are there any other files other than
~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.MCX.plist that contain application
Managed Preferences that might be causing this one app to be showing
up as not allowed? Any ideas on how
~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.MCX.plist keeps getting sync'd back up
the network home folder on the server?

This has now become a fairly urgent issue, so I hope someone can
provide some insight.

Sincerely,

Morgan Aldridge
