Posting this here because I just ran into the problem and couldn’t find a solution on the interwebs.

If you’re using Mysql Administrator on a Mac and you try to schedule an automated backup only to find your SQL backups only a few lines long. You probably won’t see an error anywhere, either. Here’s your fix:

Go to Preferences and to the General section. Change the password storage type from Keychain to Obscured. The problem is that Mac OS won’t let the automated program have access to the Keychain, so it can’t connect to your database and get to work.
