    DMF service not available in non-admin accounts

    I have been trying to get DMF services working in non-admin OS 10.8.4 accounts.

    Today I received the following response from Customer Service regarding the DMF services:


    I can now confirm this will not run under either Standard or Parental users. 
    We have done some testing today, and had to give the above users so many rights that they were basically admin users. 

    Hope this answers your question, and if you ..."


    Hope this helps anybody bumping up against the same issue.

    Thank you so much, Paul Kyle! 

    I have been working on getting AMA link to work all day. Finally, narrowed it down to the Admin User has to AMA link to a drive &/or folder first before a standard user can AMA link to that volume &/or folder. This is going to be a huge problem. I have 200 students that have access to 8 computers (10.8.4) running MC7. I can NOT give them admin privileges and I certainly can't login as admin, open mc7, AMA link to the drive &/or folder every time a standard user creates a new folder!!

    Creating DMF folders was going to be my next work around! Thank you for saving me time! You really helped me not waste another hour or so on this.

    What is your solution? 

    I'll post again if I can come up with a better solution too!
