Repeatedly Receiving Popup to Add Authentication for Lync 2011

This document explains how to fix the problem of a recurring Keychain popup to add authentication in Lync 2011.

If the user is unable to log in to Lync 2011 nad keeps getting a Keychain popup to add authentication, use Shift  + Command + G and type ~/Library/Keychains.

Once the folder opens:
  • If found, remove the OC_KeyContainer file.
  • Cut and paste all the remaining MS- and Lync-related files and place them in a tempfolder on the desktop.
  • Reboot and attempt Lync authentication again.
  • If this works, trash the tempfolder and certs.
