Hi,

I just moved our installation to another piece of hardware and also upgraded from 7.4.3 in Mac 10.5.8 to 8.3 in Mac 10.9.

It seemed to go well, users can log in, all looked fine yesterday when I did it.

I just found, that, though everyone can log in (authentication is through Open Directory on 10.6.8), I can make no changes to the user accounts on Kerio. If I try to delete or deactivate an account, which I could do in 7.4.3, I get an "internal database" error. If I try to add an account from Directory Service, I can see all the usernames listed but when I choose one I'm told the LDAP Server is not available.

This morning, I did install v8.3 of the Open Directory Extension on the OD Server, but it's still not working.

Any thoughts? I'm stuck with the users I have until I get this sorted out.

Thanks,

Jeff

Solved it. I removed the replica OD Server from the configuration and it worked. Turns out the DNS on the primary and secondary servers are configured wrong. Once I fixed that I was able to re-enable the replica server and it seems ok now. Note to anyone using Sophos routers' "Static Entries" for reverse lookups: Kerberos seems to need a 'real' DNS Server to work correctly. Not sure what else is provided by it, but just being able to issue HOST commands for both names and addresses from the servers isn't enough.
