help with mac os x server
ok, i'm new to OS X server, and i'm having a hard time with it. i'm trying to use Open Directory, but how do i get a client computer to be able to log in to the server?
i have setup Directory Access correctly, i think, on the client machine. but how do i get it to look for the server at the login screen?

for Open Directory to work this must be the working order:
- Setup Mac OS X Server preferably on a network with a DNS on which a DNS entry has been made for your Mac OS X Server.
- Setup the Mac OS X Server as a Open Directory Master (choose a Direcory Administrator shortname, default = diradmin, and password). You'll notice the Kerberos realm to be akin the DNS entry of you Mac OS X Server
- Create Users in the Open Directory: First Open Workgroup Manager, click on "authenticate", choose for LDAP v3, 127.0.0.1, and enter the diradmin name created above, then create users
- Go to your client Mac. Ideally this Mac shares the same DNS as the server.
- Goto Directory Access, and double click LDAP v3
- Click on "new", and enter the DNS name of your Mac OS X Server / OD Master (can do with IP address aswell)
- It should confirm the OD settings.
- Make sure that in System Prefs, Accounts, Login Options, the "Automatically Login as.." is unchecked.
- Reboot the client Mac, and login as OD User.
