QTSS spamming my secure.log (Mac OSX server)

| | Comments (0)

This is just for people running Mac OSX server. If your secure.log is full of spam like this:

Jun  8 23:02:40 media-lab com.apple.SecurityServer[55]: Succeeded authorizing ri
ght com.apple.server.admin.streaming by client /usr/sbin/QuickTimeStreamingServe
r for authorization created by /System/Library/CoreServices/ServerManagerDaemon.
bundle.
Jun  8 23:03:40 media-lab com.apple.SecurityServer[55]: Succeeded authorizing ri
ght com.apple.server.admin.streaming by client /System/Library/CoreServices/Serv
erManagerDaemon.bundle for authorization created by /System/Library/CoreServices
/ServerManagerDaemon.bundle.
Jun  8 23:03:40 media-lab com.apple.SecurityServer[55]: Succeeded authorizing ri
ght com.apple.server.admin.streaming by client /usr/sbin/QuickTimeStreamingServe
r for authorization created by /System/Library/CoreServices/ServerManagerDaemon.
bundle.
Jun  8 23:04:40 media-lab com.apple.SecurityServer[55]: Succeeded authorizing ri
ght com.apple.server.admin.streaming by client /System/Library/CoreServices/Serv
erManagerDaemon.bundle for authorization created by /System/Library/CoreServices
/ServerManagerDaemon.bundle.

Then the problem is an overzealous servermgrd (server manager daemon). You can throttle it back by editing its preferences at:

/Library/Preferences/com.apple.servermgrd.plist

Change the idlePeriod from 60 to 300 (the max). This will at least put 5 minutes between the spam messages.
