Why does creating a new account and making it an administrator require system restart in macOS?
I do the following:
- login to macOS (El Capitan) as
- open Users & Groups Preferences
- add a new user
- check Allow user to administer this computer
OS responds with:
You must restart the computer for your changes to admin2’s administrator settings to take effect.
The question is: why?
If I restart OS and login again as
admin1 what has changed compared to the state before restart?
admin2 was a just-created user and there were no processes nor other active settings that depended on it.
