Please hope an OS X/Open Directory/Kerberos n00b -- I can't reset the directory administrator's password in OS X Server 10.4.
I'm helping a local school with some connectivity issues between their 10.4.11 server, and their swanky new 24" iMacs with 10.5.6; all kinds of permissions issues that are, according to Apple, related to an unconfigured DNS/Open Directory situation.
I know basic OSX Server configuration, but I am very unfamiliar with OD. I'm following these instructions
from Apple successfully so far, but I'm hitting a brick wall were either:
a) someone has set the username/password for the diradmin user prior to my attempt to do so, or
b) the password has never been set, but the server is not allowing me to set said password.
Assuming the former, I found these instructions
on resetting the diradmin password, but...I'm stuck at, "Open Workgroup Manager using your administrator username and password and navigate to the Open Directory Master node." I see no node. There's no node, dammit!
If it's the latter, any ideas why it will not allow me to set the password from the server admin OD panel? It asks for it to be set up each time, but doesn't appear to set it.
Any advice SUPERLY appreciated.
