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?

You should have an Other option on the login screen. If not, check your Directory Access settings again.

I've only done it with AD, so I'm not certain of the details with OD. However, I believe that you want to use LDAP and add the OD server in there (click New and add it).

well, i got to login my server one time, and after updating to 10.4.9 i can't login anymore!

i found this error in my LDAP log:

slapd[12622]: SASL [conn=53] Failure: no user in database\n

Waitup....

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.
