Mac OS X Lion Server :: Re-installed Lion 10.7.3, But Not Able To Login Anymore?

Mar 25, 2012

I have a Mini Server, 10.7.3. 8GB, SSD 256, use it for FCPX mostly. Just moved all datafiles to external disks and re-installed Lion, but now I cannot access my user account. When I started up the system after it had installed, it asked me for company name and email address, but then I cannot access my user account any more.

Do I need to re-install the system again, or how can I solve this? I don't remember what email address I used originally when I got the server and registered it, whether it was my personal or the business address, which I gave this time.  

I do remember the login name and password that I have always used, but these don't work anymore and I have too many jobs pending this week.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Can't Login To After 10.7.3

I installed the 10.7.3 Server Combo update today, and now when I try to use to administer my server, it just shakes to tell me they are invalid (even though I'm logged in to the server with that username/password).

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Postfix Won't Receive Or Send Anymore

May 4, 2012

Started off configuring the sendmail server through the known files. messed them up, stupid I know, but I'm learning... 

I got the mailserver running again, get it working properly. First of all, the DNS is working as it should. Before I started, everything (except push notification server) was working.

(The PN server was a strange one, had to do with the difference in the name it fills in automatically from the Server Admin Mail panel)  

Anyway, it is starting up now, but gives (for me) some strange logging's. 

First of all, when I see some mailserver is trying to deliver mail it gets an error:NOQUEUE: reject: RCPT from (smtp server) : 451 4.3.5 Server configuration problem; from=(sender)That should be a configuration error in the file.

But which one ? 

The other is when I do a postfix check I get

/usr/libexec/postfix/post-install: Error: /usr/libexec/postfix/postfix-files is not a file.

postfix/postfix-script: fatal: unable to create missing queue directories

Strange, as I didn't change those settings

Is there a place where I can find the "original" from scratch and and the files? If I have them I would and should be able to get it up again..  As I am running imap, am I going to loose all mail when I start a reinstall of postfix only, because of user issues ?

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 :: Can't Login From SL Client

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Configuring Login And File Servers?

I have 3 servers in my office. I have plan to configure these three together in my office. My plan is one server just only for login purpose and other two to keep the home folders and shared folders.the function is when one network user log in to one client machine, it just login(by using first server)and disconnect from first server and connect to the either two (means direct to the homefolder i created either of two server). Means first server as login server and other two are file servers.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: AD Mobile Account Login Trouble

Jun 20, 2012

I have a brand new iMac running 10.7.4 bound to AD with mobile accounts to be created at login. We've had dozens of users log into this Mac with their AD credentials with no problems. Login proceeds as expected, home folders are created, etc. One user cannot log in. The login window will freeze (spinning beach ball) after he enters his credentials and the computer has to be manually shut down. After a restart you can see that his home directory has been created, with proper permissions, but he still cannot log in (spinning beach ball). However, he CAN log onto other AD bound Macs, just not this one. And he CAN log onto a bound Windows machine, so apparently there's nothing wrong with his account. There is no OD server in the mix. The computer is bound to our AD domain only. The system log shows the proper UID but indicates that the user name can't be found. But then the user folder (with the correct name) is created anyway. Later there is an entrry that the UID can't be found.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Disable Sleep Button At Login Screen?

May 1, 2012

Is there a way to disable or hide the sleep button at the login screen? I am trying to send updates and/or commands from ARD.... But the end users are putting the computers to sleep by pressing the sleep button. This is causing the ARD updates/commands to fail. The computers and severs are all Lion OSX. If I can disable the sleep button at login then I can send the updates/commands. I normally only do the updates/commands when there is no user logged in.So I am not concerned with the case where the user is already logged in and puts the computer to sleep. I have already setup an MCX in WGM for the Energy Saver.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Network Users Can't Login Via VPN And Profile Manager

Apr 7, 2012

I have a problem with Network Users defined on my Lion Server accessing the server through VPN or Profile Manager (via Safari) ... I keep on getting authentication errors. Is this because they are network users or am I missing something else?

This works: when I logon to my Lion Server with either local or network users everything seems to be OK including home directory synchronisation.

I tried the following for VPN:my local server account can logon to the server (ie my secret key, user account/password combination are OK ("chap peer authentication succeeded for ...")when I try the same with two of my network accounts I keep on getting authentication errors (VPN) but I'm sure I use the same userid/password combinations as above ("chap peer authentication failed for ...")

I get similar results when I access the Profile Manager (url..)my local server account can logon on to the Profile Manager and sees as all the informationwhen I try this with one of my network accounts (which has devices assigned) I keep on getting 'incorrect user name or password

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Can't Log In To Profile Manager Or My Devices With Active Directory Login

May 21, 2012

I have an OSX Lion 10.7.4 Server set up with Profile Manager and it is joined to AD. 

I am able to see AD groups in the Profile Manager groups section. I can also see and add AD users and groups using the server app. 

I have enabled the "Can Enable Remote Management" check box for Domain Users through Profile Manager. I have also added Domain Admins to the Workgroup group in the Server app. I'm not sure that I want or need either of these options, but they were suggestions to try. I am not able to log on to the Profile Manager or My Devices pages with AD logins. 

I found these directions about nested groups in Workgroup Manager [URL] but I don't have a [URL] local group or any groups like are shown in the picture.

The server has a FQDN that points to 10.x.y.z and the reverse lookup points to the server name.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: AD LDAP Connects To Lion Server But Does Not Show Users / Groups

I have a server in our DMZ that connects to Active Directory LDAP server (non-ssl over 389) but no objects actually show up in the directory editor. I get a green light in my Network Account Server, but queries against LDAP return no results. My end goal is to be able to dictate to Profile Manager what LDAP groups are allowed to enroll devices. I tested on our internal network on a test server and get the same results. Anyone have any luck connecting a Lion Server to LDAP and actually being able to view and utilize users and groups?

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Can't Find 'Workgroup Manager' Installed

May 28, 2012

I'm just setting up a new Mac Mini (5,3) Server but I can't find 'Workgroup Manager' installed, only the 'Server' app. Is this the difference between the Mac Mini and a 'real' server? 

The server app seems to do most things but I want to create all the user accounts with a pre set password but force each user to create their own password on first login, I can't seem to find this option in the 'Server' app. I can do this in Workgroup Manager on my old 10.4 server that's being replaced.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Why Purchase Server AND Client When Already Bought Lion Client

When I try to purchase the Lion Server from the App Store it displays a message that OS X Lion is also required uand I have to purchase both even when I am logged in and next to the Server item the client version confirms that I have already purchased it with a "download" button - the app has been downloaded but cannot install it as it is waiting for the app store to download the server components... and what if I just want to use it as a client only? Any suggestions besides the obvious $80 purchase.

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 :: Lion Won't Hold Preferences After NetRestore

Jul 6, 2012

I'm setup a master image in Lion on a MacBook Pro and sucessfully created the image and hosted it up on as a NetRestore. In this image I made a local account that I call "Local Adminisrator" with the short name "ladmin" and I use this account to install all my applications under and also set user settings like finder views, dock icons, turn off resume, turn off backwards scrolling and all those things. Typically in Snow Leopard after I have done this, these settings took affect under other users.   

You may be thinking, why not just set user prefrerences under Workgroup Manager and the reason I havn't done this is my server runs Snow Leopard Server and its scheduled for upgrade for the mountain lion release. So far how I've hosted the NetResore images is in a Virtual Machine running on an iMac I have lying around.   

So my question is: is there any I can create all user settings under lion in my one administrator account and then have these settings be applied for all the users? It seems like Lion just goes back to the defaults whenever a new user logs in from either active directroy or open directory,

Click Continue to download and install the software and finish configuration."It then shows a progress bar and proceeds to download, but stops with the error message:"Can't install Server Essentials because it is not currently available from the Software Update server." There is only an "OK" button that cancels the installer.I wasted hours with phone calls and support chat but they didn't know anything. it really seems like Apple has expanded to the point of incompetency.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: IMAP Server Process Deleting User Emails?

Jun 4, 2012

I know this issue is kind of old, but there are so many flavors of it, that it is hard to find exact match. I've been having problems with single account, and it happens that this account has admin rights. Emails get pulled/deleted from user's mailbox within 10 secs after arrival. There are no other devices that may be pulling those emails, however, I've noticed something strange in the logs:

Jun  4 13:47:43 osxserver dovecot[173]: imap-login: Login: user=<xxxx>, method=CRAM-MD5, rip=, lip=, mpid=406, secured 

I don't know if this event is normal to run on server itself, but seems it runs only for this one account that I'm having problems with. There is no imap client setup on that server, and based on my time stamps observations I'm pretty much convinced that's what's deleting my emails.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Use Mobile Accounts Locally (on Server) As Well As On A Laptop Connected To It?

Jun 5, 2012

The girlfriend and I are consolidating machines and want to try a software based approach instead of a plug and swap approach. My goal is to have only a Desktop + iPad and she have her MacBook. The issue is that we also want to keep it limited to one monitor, etc. on the desk but she is in grad school and will have need for the larger screen and keyboard. My question is can I set up her laptop to use a Mobile Account and assuming she logs off on that before going onto the Server, can she then log in to the Server desktop and use that Mobile Account locally there? So sometimes use the Mobile Account on the laptop, Sometimes on the Desktop. From my days managing a small network, this seems plausible but could also be fraught with problems.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Cannot Connect To VPN Service Unless Server Is Locally Logged Into

Jun 27, 2012

I work remotely a lot.  After I upgraded to Lion server, I am unable to connect to the VPN service remotely unless I physically go over to the server (mac pro) and log into the desktop manually. 

Previously, if my Snow Leopard server restarted (due to power failure, etc) and it re-booted up to the login screen, I could still logon to the VPN remotely as the VPN service would always startup (at the login screen) without a user having to be logging in.   

Now, with Lion Server (10.7.4), if the server restarts, I cannot login back to the VPN. I have to get someone to go over to the server and manually login, then I can access VPN just fine. (I do not, and will not turn automatic login on on my server due to the huge security risk.)   

How do I get the Lion Server VPN service to startup before or at the logon screen even if no user is logged in?

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Connecting To 10.7 Server Via SMB And Active Directory?

Feb 9, 2012

I am running a 10.7.3 Lion Server bound to Active Directory.  There are only several local admin users on the machine; everyone else authenticates against AD.  AFP connections work fine, using both local and AD accounts.  SMB connections work fine if you use a local account but any AD account is rejected as having the wrong password when connecting via SMB.  I've tried using the adusername trick (our AD server is named "ad") even though you're not supposed to need that with 10.7.2 and above... it doesn't help. 

I have tried both a Windows 7 client and a 10.6 client, specifying SMB as the protocol in the Connect To Server dialog.  Both fail, and they also take several minutes before reporting the bad password (the slowness in responding is yet another problem I've read as being an issue).  Checking the kdc.log file on the server I see: 

2012-02-09T09:54:22 digest-request netr: failed user=AD\dlennie DC status code c000006d
2012-02-09T09:54:22 digest-request: netr failed with -1073741715 proto=ntlmv2
2012-02-09T09:54:22 digest-request: od failed with 2 proto=ntlmv2


I am using the full DNS name for the server, and on my test clients there are no firewalls or other network issues that would prevent connection to the server. We're mostly Macs here but the Windows users become a rather vocal group when something doesn't go their way.  The confusing part to me is that AFP authenticates just fine and SMB doesn't.
