tvmobili was there and that command was successful, MacKeeper wasn't and it is still trying every 10 seconds.

I just let it sit and run. It was from the internal HDD to an OWC Merc Electra SSD in a USB enclosure, which were then swapped. I was using Carbon Copy Cloner. Once in the MBP everything was fine.

I started clicking around, and tried Option <click> and it opened a "Repair main identity" database utility. I ran that and it worked. That was pretty lucky for me.
