You are unable to log in to the user account at this time?
Posted on 2009-04-25
Working on a Battle Bot with OS X Tiger (10.4.11) and we installed a new hard drive and clean install of the OS with 9 support.
The user enabled FileVault on 10 and everything was working fine. He switched to using 9 for a while and that was working fine.
When he switched back to 10, it prompts him for his password but will not accept it.
We booted using the OS install discs and reset the password. Tried to login with the new password and get the message "You are unable to log in to the user account [name] at this time"
I have tried repairing file permissions with no change.
I created a new admin account, using single user mode and was then able to login. I still can't login to the original account.
Filevault is turned off for the new user account, but the other account still has protected folders that I need to access.
How can I turn off Filevault for that other account and get to the files?
