I have been using
do shell script “rsyncPath options path1 path2 etc.” password myPassword with administrator privileges
to run rsync in background with admin privileges to copy a disk to another local disk.
It has worked great but now in ASOC I am getting requests for password from the system after a while.
Has anyone else noticed this? I am wondering if there is a better way by using NSTask and run with privileges that way. Looking at various online topics and the docs for Authorization services though, it seems very complicated.
Any thoughts in this direction appreciated.
