Apple Remote Desktop 3 with OS X 10.7 probs

Seem to be having quite a few problems since moving onto 10.7 with remote desktop 3 and task server 3.4 (xserve OS X 10.4.8)

What I think it boils down to is accidentally upgrading to ARD 3.6. I since downgraded but required a bit of uninstallation which Macs don't do by default.

Found this info on uninstalling ARD:

sudo rm -rf /var/db/RemoteManagement
sudo rm /Library/Preferences/com.apple.RemoteDesktop.plist
rm ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.RemoteDesktop.plist

For Apple Remote Desktop 3, run these commands in Terminal as well:

sudo rm -r /Library/Application\ Support/Apple/Remote\ Desktop/
rm -r ~/Library/Application\ Support/Remote\ Desktop/

To Remove Apple Remote Desktop, execute these commands in Terminal:

sudo rm -rf /System/Library/CoreServices/Menu\ Extras/RemoteDesktop.menu
sudo rm -rf /System/Library/CoreServices/RemoteManagement/
sudo rm -rf /System/Library/PreferencePanes/ARDPref.prefPane
sudo rm -rf /System/Library/StartupItems/RemoteDesktopAgent/
sudo rm /Library/Preferences/com.apple.ARDAgent.plist
sudo rm /Library/Preferences/com.apple.RemoteManagement.plist

I Then re-installed ARD 3.5.1 and clients 3.5.1

Because I've got so much save in ARD, I made a point to backup the ARD plist files in ~/Library/Preferences

This means I have all my saved scripts.
