Unable to access NVAdmin from Aqua (the native Mac OS X GUI) after changing the "default" user's password.
When attempting to run NVadmin, it will hang at the "Connecting to server " stage.
On Mac OS X there is an Aqua and an X11 GUI. NetVault Access Control can be configured using the X11 GUI. If Acccess Control is enabled, by changing the password of NetVault's "default" user, the Aqua GUI becomes unusable. This is because the Access Control functionality is incompatible with the Aqua GUI interface as it conflicts with native Mac OS X security.
Leave the default password blank if you want to use the Aqua GUI. If the X11 GUI was used to change the "default" user's password, start the X11 GUI and reset the password.
