    Reader crashing for Network User on OSX 10.6.6


      I have recently installed Reader 10.0.1 under the local Admin account on one of my Macs. It launches and works as planned. When one of my network users gets on the same Mac under their own account, Reader crashes. The pertinent line from the Console states:


      [0x0_0x3a03a].com.adobe.Reader[2044]     terminate called after throwing an instance of 'SQLiteUtils::SQLiteException'


      It doesn't matter which network user logs in (as I've tried it with multiple accounts), they all crash. Reader will bring up the EULA, the crash after I click Agree. Any thoughts?

          I am having exactly the same problem.

            We tried to reproduce similar scenario at our end but could not reproduce the problem. To be on the same page, let me tell the steps I followed.

            1) On iMAC OS x 10.6.6 in admin account I installed Reader 10.0.1

            2) Using Active directory autentication I enabled network home users to login through this mac. This is a managed network type account. On login screen user chooses option - Others. In username user provides - domain\<username> and password to login to this iMac.

            3) When user logs in, he goes to Application where Reader is already installed. He opens the application to accept EULA and user now gets a message to make reader default application to view pdf files.

            I did not see any crash here.


            For further investigations on our side, we request you to share details like

            a) Crash Log that you see on crash (entire log which was asked to send to apple)

            b) Provide further informations like what all adobe products are installed on this iMac.


            Also if possible can you install Reader X (10.0.0) and see whether that is working. Link to download page is:

              You've attempted this with Windows authentication (Active Directory.) I'm using an Apple client/server connection using Open Directory (LDAP.) It's not the same setup and you're not going to get the same result, as you reported.


              As for other Adobe software, I have AIR and Flash Player on this Mac. Here's the crash log:

              • 4. Re: Reader crashing for Network User on OSX 10.6.6

                I have the same issue with Reader crashing for network users.  Authentication via OpenDirectory, OS X 10.6.6. Any of my users that use network home directories cannot launch Reader without it crashing almost immediately. If a user has their mobile account enable they are able to launch Reader without issue. For clarity a mobile account is a LOCAL copy of their network home directory that is sync'd back to the server at pre-defined intervals. So there is some small difference in how Reader treats a local file system vs. a network file system.

                  That's exactly what I'm talking about. I haven't tried the Mobile Homes, but am not really interested in adding to the work I already have to do. I'm wondering if the newly released 10.6.7 will change anything.

                  • 6. Re: Reader crashing for Network User on OSX 10.6.6

                    I have exactly the same problem.


                    - Mac OS 10.5.8 or 10.6.6

                    - Authentification with Active Directory on Windows server 2008

                    - Adobe Reader 9 or X


                    Works fine on a local account, crashes with a remote AD Account.


                    Edit: just tested on the new release Mac OS 10.6.7: still crashing...


                    Also cause a crash when trying to read a pdf file trough Safari 5.0.xx


                    This bug exist since the first release of Abobe Reader 9, more than one year ago...

                      We are trying to reproduce this scenario inhouse. I have done Open Directory Authentication setup on OSx Server 10.6.6

                      On clent side please let me know what type of LDAP Mapping is configured. Is it RFC 2307(Unix) or Open Directory Server or Active Directory.


                      See the attached image below.

                        Hello, thank's for your attention.


                        Client connect to Windows server 2008 using Active Directory. Client

                        account (all the "little house" is hosted on this Windows Server.


                        This is the way I proceed:


                        - Creation of the new user in the Active Directory

                        - Move all the stuff contained in the "little house" to the folder of

                        this user, situated in the folder "homes"

                        - Check if you use DHCP (no fixed IP)

                        - Connect the client to A.D.

                        - try to open a pdf file with reader

                        - Crash...


                        But the problem is the same if you use Mac Os X server 10.5.8 on a X-

                        serve, connecting your clients with Open Directory.


                        The way to connect to Active Directory is more obvious with an 10.5.8

                        Os, if you have one running there.


                        Thanks for taking care of this problem.


                        Have a good day.

                          Our setup uses the From Server mapping, which is the default.

                                Thank you Steve and Guy for your responses. I will try to get similar setups done here.

                                  Hi Karan,


                                  I have found this thread on acrobat and osx server. I have recently migrated to a mac mini server with home folders. I use acrobat pro and reader regularly and after the migration both "quit unexpectedly". If I log in to local on my iMac27 both acrobat pro and reader still work no problem. Only a problem when logged into server. Both mac mini server and imac27 are running most recent osx 10.6.7

                                  Running an Open directory Server.

                                  Let me know what other information you would like me to provide to help replicate and find a solution to this problem. I will be office tomorrow (eastern standard time).

                                    Hi Stefan,


                                    Thankyou for reporting this but as you suggested, the problem is seen when logged to server. What I believe is that it is the similar problem as described above. You can verify your crash log to the one reported above. The users have reported facing similar issue. I am trying to get this setup done here.

                                    What I have tried is Open Directory Authentication as described in the link http://vuksan.com/linux/mac-os-x-ldap/openldap-mac-os-x-authentication.html

                                    Here the client mapping (LDAP Mapping) is configured as RFC 2307 (Unix). With this kind of setup, I was not able to see any crash. But users above reported that they are using default "From Server" setting. So I am working on geting this done here.

                                    Once we have setup ready, and able to replicate the issue we will debug the problem.

                                    If you want to log this as a bug, you can also report here - https://www.adobe.com/cfusion/mmform/index.cfm?name=wishform

                                      I am also having the exact same problem with OD authentication.  Has this issue been resolved?  Is there a fix?

                                        We appear to be experiencing this as well.


                                        Rough outline -

                                        Using OSX 10.6.7

                                        iMac using a network user authenticated using OD to server.

                                        Home directory shared from server.


                                        Adobe reader crashes 'quit unexpectedily'


                                        Login using local user omn same machine; no problem.


                                        Have logged this as a bug, but curious to see if this thread has had any updates?

                                          One thing I noticed, Karen, is that the link you reference for setting up OD is not for 10.6. I believe the Directory application was removed for after 10.5.

                                            Thanks You for the information provided. We are trying to resolve this issue.

                                            Secondly by what I understand is that you are talking about Directory Utility when you are refering to Directory Application. You can access that in 10.6 in Settings -> User Accounts -> Login Options -> Network Account Server -> Click Join. Now you will see option - Open Directory Utility... Is it the same thing you are talking about.

                                              Yes; same thing, but I was just making sure you knew that the instructions that you had followed were a little old and a little more involved than the actual 'adding a workstation to server osx authentication' that I followed.


                                              I will try and find the PDF from Apple, but for now, the main way to add a workstation is (as you suggest) for 10.6 is Sys Pref-> Accounts -> Login Items -> Network Account Server 'Join'.  That's all we did.


                                              Thanking for taking the time to look into this problem.

                                                Hi I have seen this issue on Network accounts for quite a while. It also affects Adobe Acrobat Pro and we have come up with a temporary fix until something is done about the issue. The main problem as I understand it is Adobe Reader does not like writing to network locations. If you are logged in as a network user then your home directory is going to be something like smb://server/home/user which Adobe does not like and causes the app to crash. To get around this issue we have created a small login hook that creates a symlink in ~/Application\ Support/Adobe which redirects the data to /Users/shared which is stored locally on the machine. Here is the login hook we're using if it helps anyone:




                                                rm -rf /Network/Servers/yourservername/homes/$1/Library/Application\ Support/Adobe


                                                sudo mkdir -p /Users/Shared/$1
                                                sudo chmod -R 777 /Users/Shared/$1
                                                ln -s /Users/Shared/$1 /Network/Servers/yourservername/homes/$1/Library/Application\ Support/Adobe




                                                I throw this in /Library/Preferences and call it symlink.sh and then run the following command to setup the login hook


                                                sudo defaults write com.apple.loginwindow LoginHook /Library/Preferences/symlink.sh


                                                You will find the adobe Reader / Pro and other adobe apps will now work with network accounts. Not the nicest solution but a working one.

                                                  Has this issue been resolved yet?

                                                  It's the same with Acrobat Pro on Network User accounts.  In v9 it could be fixed by copying the 9.0_x86 folder in Application Support onto the local machine somewhere and replacing the one in the user library with an alias to the one on the local drive. (There are tons of posts on the net describing how to do this). However doing it with the "10.0" folder doesn't fix the issue in version X.


                                                  FYI Directory Utility is located in /System/Library/Core Services/  They moved it there from /Applications/Utilities/ folder in 10.6. 


                                                  Also, our network uses Open Directory, but we have the LDAP set to "Open Directory" rather than "From Server" in Directory Utility.  The crash still occurs FYI.


                                                  I'm waiting for this to get fixed to upgrade to 10.

                                                    Today I tried latest available Reader X and Acrobat X (10.1.3) on Network Home Users - With sharing done through Open Directory - AFP setup. We did not see any crash. The issue was fixed since 10.1.

                                                    I hope after updating you are not facing this issue anymore.
