I run an educational lab of 20 iMacs, all running Mac OS 10.7.5(11G63) with ARD version 3.6.2. My server and all of the iMacs run Lion. I seem to have crossed something and now my root user is being controlled with the same preferences I have setup for my LDap users. Somehow, ARD has taken control of the root user, most notably the System Preferences. Is there a way around this problem. I need root to have full permissions (like it should), while still controlling the individual users who log on.
I'm guessing you mean your admin user not the root user right? Make sure you are managing user preferences and not computer preferences.
