Mac OS X Lion Server :: Machine Name Without Domain Name?

Jun 23, 2012

I've just set up DNS on Lion Server and whereas previously I could connect to a system on my network by the hostname (e.g. via ssh), using the Lion Server DNS requires the fully-qualified name. Is this by design? I've checked all my settings and it all seems to be correct.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Cert That Was Provided With Domain Name?

Apr 11, 2012

I have not set up ssl before so i have a very basic question. I would like to support my Mac Lion server based email with a basic SSL cert that was provided with my domain name. 

When setting up the certificate would i set the dNSName to  domainname.com or to server.domainname.com 

My mail server host name is set to server.domainname.com so i would assume this is the correct one, but emails are addressed to name@domainname.com so

I want to be sure i am setting this correctly before i generate the csr

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Cannot Login To Domain After 10.7.4 Update

May 16, 2012

Here again dealing with how OS X deals with .local domains I think.Was previously bound and all was working fine.Have just updated to 10.7.4 When trying to login using the "Other User" the button stays red and says Network accounts unavailable.I can ping domain server by name and IP.Permissions have been rebuilt.

Have rebound. Had a problem at first unbinding inside the Open Directory Utility as it said it could not connect with the domain and an unused account would be left if a forced unbind was done. Tried again by using the minus button instead of the Unbind button and it worked without any message.

So then binded to the domain and all looked good. Green button next to Network Account Server in the Users and Groups.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Create A DNS Record For A Domain Itself (without A Hostname)

Mar 10, 2012

Normally, you can create a DNS record that points to the zone itself, e.g.: 

@   10800 IN A    196.197.200.201 

How do you accomplish that on a Mac OSX Lion Server? The DNS requires you to enter a hostname and it does not accept "@" as the hostname as it normally appears in the zone file. (manually modifying the host file does not work - I tried that ;-) )

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Finding The Scripting References For Web Domain Creation?

Feb 14, 2012

I have been unable to find any references on how to best automate certain "tasks" in Lion so that I can do the following: 

create predefined DNS names based upon the clients domain name
create predefnined web address based upon the just created DNS 

For example.... We have the customer "Sammy's Flower Garden" and his domain is "sammysflowergarden.com". At the command line, I would type:

$ clientsetup sammysflowergarden.com This would then create a base folder structure (this part has already been written)ClientDomains     -     S          -     sammysflowergarden.com               -     production               -     staging               -     archive               -     design                    -     template     

[code]....

From what I have read, alot of modifications outside of the Lion serveradmin tooling can result in some rather unusual if not nasty behaviour. If this is true, then I would assume that I could not just write out to a file in /var/named/ and have it automaticly picked up by the server? The same for the apache instance? I still want to be able to use the GUI interface when needed.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Cannot Edit Website Details - Domain Name Field Blank

Mar 23, 2012

I'm trying to setup a Lion Server as an internet server - not as a web server - I need access to a different port.When I use the Server UI to go to Web, I can select to edit my domain name but then in the edit window, the Domain Name field is blank, and I can't change anything such as the port, SSL Cert, etc.As best I can tell, I have the DNS setup but I'm not sure I've done it correctly. I can add a second domain name and can edit the details for that. I'd hoped I could delete the first one or swap them but no luck.I can't access the domain name from outside the LAN but it may have just not propagated yet. I can access the IP address and do see the default home page.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Routing  Profile Manager/iCal  Published Into .private Domain?

Mar 15, 2012

i've setted up my mini server as "server.domain.private"because i don't want it to be published on the internet by default, i want to have control on wich webapp is published.my main goal is to have a new Vhosts wich is serving only the webapps i need to be running and ,why not, hosting multiple VhostS enabling just some (or one) webapps each [url]). in other words: i want control on what is published where and how in order to publish Profile Manager i did: - created a new virtual host on the web service called "server.public-domain.com"- enabled the webapp on that Vhost from terminal as found in: [url]  using this command "webappctl start [url]"- restarted the whole server but this seems not to work as expected.. should it ??? after some dirty work on the apache config (copy/paste from the original vHost of some "proxypass" and "balancemembers" and "include" regarding devicemngmt) i got it to ask me for password when browsed from the outside world, BUT after login it will redirect my browser to "server.domain.private" wich is obviously not working from outside.

OS X Server :: AFP Over Kerberos In A AD Domain?

Dec 21, 2006

on setting up an OD master to accept kerberos from a AD domain and I can't get AFP to work.

What I've done:

1. Bind OD Master to AD
2. Destroyed the OD Kerberos realm
3. Ran sudo dsconfigad -enableSSO

When I log into a client that is bond to both AD and OD and try to access a SMB share on the AD side it works. When I try to access a SMB share on the OD master it work. When I try to access a AFP share on the OD Master it fails with the error " The user Authentication Method required by this server can't be found". Now I think this error is because I'm forcing Kerberos authentication, if I change AFP setting to any method authentication I get promoted with the AFP login window, I enter my AD account information and I'm able to mount the share.

MacBook Pro :: Cannot Join MS Windows Server 2008 Domain

Mar 17, 2012

I recently purchased a new MacBook pro with Mac OS X, I updated the OS to the latest release which is 10.7.3. I need to join (bind) a MS Windows server 2008 Domain, but when I try to bind I get below error:

Unable to add server.

The daemon encountered an error processing request (10002)

I searched the internet for a solution; most suggestions refer to sync the clock with the domain clock as Kerberos protocol is unable to authenticate. I cannot find a option to sync the clock with the domain clock, how I do that?

IMac :: Snow Leopard 10.6.4 Connecting To Windows SBS Server Domain

Aug 19, 2010

I looked for a introduction forum but couldn't see one so hello guys and gals. Great forum you've got here..Right my issue is as follows.I have a new iMac Pro on snow leopard 10.6.4 and it is linked to a Windows SBS server 2007 but i don't think i've done it properly.When i switch the machine on all i get on boot up is 1 local user Sometimes i can leave it and it will offer me the 'Other' option which i can then login to the server But most times it doesn't to that... I have to logon as that local user and then unbind the windows domain and rebind it then when i logoff it shows me the 'Other' user Also another thing thats annoying is it doesn't map anything automatically i have had to create a alias icon on my desktop to go to my server space and it can take up to a minute to connect to the server..

Intel Mac :: Restore Lion OS From Lion Server Time Machine Backup?

May 3, 2012

I am running a Intel Imac 2008 clean install SL then Lion upgrade, followed by Lion Server install.I have multiple home macs, and intnded the server as a way to monitor and restrict kids internet use.In short, it has changes/screwed up multiple programs, and complicated home sharing issues considerably. Mail on the server machine has permission problems (cannot send mail, unable to sign), Spotlight in mail is non-functioning, finder spotlight searches are inconsistent, etc.I want to revert to plain old Lion.

I have done disk utility/verify disk and verified/repaired permissions, and have 'fiddled' (i'm not an expert) in the keychain/certificates areas, but I think the best solution is a clean install of Lion. When I backup to TIme Machine, is there a way to pull a 'Lion' version of my disk image back, and just not upgrade to Server? I understand I can disable Server and turn off applications in Server, but it doesn't fix my buggy machine. My options are to back up my 250GB of music, 100GB of photos, 100GB of movies, etc on to external drives, and clean install and then reimport everything, but even that will probably mean I cant reinstall my single user licesnse of MS office, VMware fusion, etc that I didn't buy on the App store.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Time Machine Error 'Create New Backup'

May 23, 2012

After updating to Lion server, I moved my Drobo over and setup Time Machine

Many users are prompeted to reuse or create a new backup.

The problem is I log in with credentials of 'USER A', and on the dialog it lists another 'USER B', userb.sparsebundle as the file to reuse.  

I recently had a iMac hard drive die, and i tired to use the time machine on the server, with 'USER A' credentials, i got 4 listings and none of them were 'USER A' 

I check the drobo and 'USER A''s sparsebundle is there. I have tried changeing permissions to read the sparsebudle, but the bundle is a 250k file, not a diskimage of the files even.  

How do i resolve this problem of the wrong users coming up on "reuse or create new backup"? 

How do i access the lost sparsebundle that i cannot log into to get the files for the user that needs them?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: What Benefits Are There To Joining A Windows Domain

My company has one mac user with a Macbook Air, we have a Windows 2008 r2 domain.I'm wondering if it is worth joining him to the domain, what benefits are there for a mac user? We use Exchange 2007 and change our passwords every 90 days.One concern is when the user is out of the office the cached password can become out of sync with the domain password.

Software :: Setup A Mail Server From A Mac OS X Server Machine?

Jul 15, 2008

I want to setup a mail server from a Mac OS X server machine.

I used the standard configuration as the wizard is going to setup all the services automatically.

I have an email of the kind server.com

After the finish of the configuration all the system was working perfectly, except one thing. I could not browse to any .com address I could not resolve the apple.com address. This is actually a DNS server issue and as my DNS server is hosted to my ISP, I closed the DNS service from the Server admin app. Now I could browse to .com addresses but all the settings to the client computers need to be done manually. Meaning not from the Directory utility. The problem is that the address of the server was changed from server.com to server.local so all the settings now are server.local, including my email address that changed from user@server.com to user@server.local that cannot be replayed from the recipient

My Question is can I change the default configuration settings that the directory utility sets?? or do any other configuration to solve the issue.

Also in the webmail when I send an email the email of the sender is the username continued by the ISP's internal static IP host which is different to my server.com. I found a solution to change the email from the personal information tag of the options button. Can I also pre configure these settings to be ready as a new user is created??
