Your best bet is to unlock the keychain and try to change the password in the keychain access app as the repair log helpfully suggests.

Changing the user password usually causes this problem and apple hasn't made it easy to deal with when it happens.

When you change the password through the System Preferences--> Users & Groups --> Change Password button it changes both the account password and the keychain password to keep the 2 passwords in sync.

When you change the password on the command line, you only reset the user account password, not the keychain password.  If you did this because the user lost the password, then there is no way to recover the keychain password.  You must delete the keychain.  The user must start over.  If the user might remember it at a later date, move the keychains to another folder.

If you do know the password, you can use the security command line tool to unlock the keychain with the known password and set the password to the current account password.

I have already tried deleting key chain password. Is there any different way of deleting it. Could you suggest the detailed steps
serialbandCommented:
You should delete it on the command line and completely wipe all entries.  That's best done from the command line.

You can delete the folder contents
rm ~/Library/Keychains/{*,.??*}

Or you can move the folder and create a new one, if you want to keep it around.
mv ~/Library/Keychains ~/Old_keychains; mkdir ~/Library/Keychains

There are actually several files in there and all of them require the same password.    If you're just deleting the Login Keychain, it only affects one file in your Keychains folder.  The other files still have your old password, and you have to change them as well.

It's just simpler to remove files.
