I'm getting two errors in the console at the same time TimeMachine is running and taking FOREVER to make any progress.

1/4/13 9:41:38.000 PM kernel[0]: Sandbox: sandboxd(5838) deny mach-lookup com.apple.coresymbolicationd

The second entry is :

 mdworker32(5837) deny mach-lookup com.apple.PowerManagement.control (import

It has the following details:

When I run the above mentioned SUDO command I get

Based on the "access denied" error and that I've only backed up 3GB of data within 30 minutes on a firewire port makes me think something is broken.

Can anyone tell me where to go next in troubleshooting this?


Update: I found an article that says I should modify system.sb (located in /System/Library/Sandbox/Profiles) to include:

(allow mach-lookup (global-name "com.apple.ls.boxd"))

(allow mach-lookup (local-name "com.apple.ls.boxd"))

Can anyone help me understand what is going on and if I'm lowering security in any way at all?

Seems a simple restart into safe mode can fix this.

I think the error in the article you link to is different then the Microsoft Office error. com.apple.ls.boxd is not involved in your particular error.

I found your posting however because I received the identical sandbox errors being reported for both Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel. I was doing a new Time Machine backup so the issue may be identical, but did not think to actually check whether the sandbox errors were limited to while I was backing up. If it helps the backup failed.

I called apple and their recommendation was to restart to the recovery drive and then use the utilities to reset the ACL permissions. This has now been done and I am back up running Console to check for further errors and yes, I am still getting the same report. Noticeably this time the sandbox error replicated without Time Machine even running so it appears to be a Microsoft Office issue not directly connected to Time Machine.

I am sending the new log to apple and will see what they say.

    > I am sending the new log to apple and will see what they say. Hi Sean, Do you remember if you got a response from apple? I'm running into the same issue in 10.8.4, and I'm running out of options.
