UPDATE: The below has been superseded by the post found here. I'd also advise looking at authbuddy instead of the below
The below will untick the option System Preferences > Security > “Require Password To Unlock Each Secure Preference” & allow all users to unlock these preferences.
These preferences are:
- Energy Saver
- Date & Time
- Startup Disk
- Time Machine

Nice, can’t seem to get it working through JAMF though… Login hook? or just once?
Once per Mac.
It’s working form me through the JSS & ARD.
Hey mate I can’t seem to get this working in Lion? I ran it but I can’t seem to get my user to have access to Time Machine or any other preference
Have any advice?
