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

Feb 19, 2012

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?

OS X Mavericks :: Unable To Create Network Users In Server App

Sep 8, 2014

When trying to create a new user in Server Application I've come across this message: "existing connection is not authenticated: password change denied".

1. Quit Server.app.  

2. On the Open Directory Server, execute these Terminal commands:     
sudo touch /var/db/openldap/migration/.rekerberize      sudo killall PasswordService  

3. Open Server.app. but the message I'm given in the terminal is No such file or directory.

Why I don't have the folder structure needed for this?

OS X Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Why Are New Directory Users Unable To Login To IChat/jabberd

May 3, 2012

I have a couple of new users I've added to our directory recently. They are unable to connect to our internal jabber (iChat) server. Users that have connected previously are experiencing no difficulty. A quick overview of the layout of the system: two XServes, one is OD primary (aspen) the other is OD replica and iChat server (vail). I've modded some config files (long ago) to allow user IDs for jabber to be user@ourcompany.office instead of user@vail.ourcompany.office. It works quite nicely. 

Excerpt from the logs shows a failed login attempt followed by a successful login attempt. Successful logins are happening from Messages (beta), iChat under Snow Leopard, and Pidgin under windows. Failing logins are all from iChat under Snow Leopard. Please ask questions, I'm happy to add any other pertinent data! May  3 16:21:45 vail jabberd/c2s[99718]: [13] [::ffff:10.255.170.122, port=52584] connectMay  3 16:21:47 vail jabberd/c2s[99718]: [13] [::ffff:10.255.170.122, port=52584] disconnect jid=unbound,

Mac OS X Lion Server :: How To Lock Down OD Users

Feb 2, 2012

I have a Mac Pro that is running OD to create users. My problem is that the users that I have to give macs to, need rights on their machines to install programs because of all of the development software that these individuals need.I don't want them to be able to make a local user so that they cant unbind these machines from the OD server.

They still need access to terminal. I don't want them to be able to boot into the recovery partition or terminal to get super user rights (thus changing passwords or adding/deleting users). I have restricted their rights to access "Users & Groups" through OD Policies but that's about all I have done.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: 10.7.4 Will Not Create Users

May 10, 2012

I bought a Mac Mini Server yesterday and set it up successfully (Set OD, etc). Everything was working great until I went back and tried to create new users via the server app. As of now, it gives me the error "SEUserErrorDomain error1" and tells me that it cannot create the user. Even though it says that, it will still show up in the user list with the "blue globe" (that I believe is from OD?) but disappear the moment I drill into it and try to save anything. Workgroup Manager will allow me to create the user, but it does not show up in the user list in the server app so I cannot enable certain services for the user (i.e. assign folders for share point, etc).  

P.S. Apple tech support had me reinstall the 10.7.4 combo update - no help. They also had me use disk utility to repair permissions - no help. P.S.S. On a side note, I did install Samba 3 on the server via mac port to try and help with LDAP auth (I ended up going with pGina for my windows users), but I have no clue how to uninstall it.

OS X Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Cannot Edit Users In Workgroup Manager, New Users Cannot Login

Feb 13, 2012

Today when we started trying to add users to our server (we use it only for afp access at this time), we noticed that new users belonging to a group "storage" were unable to login from client machines via afp (clients both 10.7.2 and 10.6.8).  

When we tried editing the users accounts to change which groups they belonged to, it would appear in workgroup (and server preferences) that the changes would take but there was still no access. 

As a test case, we modified an existing user who had no issues logging in to belong to a diffenent group and have different sharepoint access. The changes looked good in workgroup and server prefs, but when the user logged in, he was only able to acces his old sharepoint and not the new one (and since his permissions to the old were removed, he shouldn't have access to that sharepoint). 

Also, for some reason users cannot be deleted within workgroup manager any more. The login used was the diradmin account.

Add Existing Users / Computers To Lion Server

May 3, 2012

We have an exiting network of approximately 50 Macs running anything from Lion to Leopard. Obviously there are existing local accounts on these machines.What I'd like to do is to administer these users and machines through Lion Server so that I can use the existing user information for all of the services provided by Lion Server, but to do so without altering the way the end user operates and without any data loss.I am having difficulty finding any information on this, but surely someone has installed Open Directory into an existing Mac network.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Windows Users Cannot Connect To SMB Service

Feb 23, 2012

I have two Lion 10.7.3 servers joined to my company's AD. These servers provide SMB/AFP file services to users. They have been working successfully until a week ago when a change in AD was made. Now Windows (7 or XP, doesn't matter) clients cannot connect to the server using the DNS name, only the IP address. Mac OS X clients are not affected by this, i.e. they can use the DNS name fine. All clients are on AD too.What I observe from a Windows 7 client is, I open Windows Explorer, type \xserver in the address bar, hit enter, & it denies my connection immediately. If I do the same thing with the IP address (\10.0.1.10), it lets me in immediately.

For Windows clients, I have tried both the short DNS name as well as the FQDN, & neither work. The DNS name on the server itself is fine, verified by "changeip -checkhostname". Whatever changed in AD caused the Lion servers to start doing this because they both started exhibiting this behavior at the same time.The only info I've been able to get regarding what changed in AD from the domain admins was "We changed the UPN fromuser@domain.example.com to Firstname.Lastname@example.com", in other words, to their email address. In the system logs, here's an attempt to connect from a Windows client using the short DNS name:

Feb 20 09:24:39 xserver rpcsvchost[32619]: sandbox_init: com.apple.msrpc.netlogon.sb succeeded
Feb 20 09:24:39 xserver sandboxd[32620] ([32619]): rpcsvchost(32619) deny file-read-metadata /Library/Managed Preferences
Feb 20 09:24:39 xserver sandboxd[32620] ([32619]): rpcsvchost(32619) deny file-read-metadata /private/var/root
Feb 20 09:24:39: --- last message repeated 3 times ---

Why only the DNS name doesn't work.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Can Multiple Users Share Applications On Server?

Mar 31, 2012

I have a small business with 4 computers. I'm wondering if I can keep all the user directories and shared files on a Mini with OS X server and also have the users share the applications that are on OS X server? Is this possible or can you only share the actual files, not the use of programs? I don't quite get why you'd have the user directories on the server rather than each computer.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Network Users And Intego VirusBarrier X6?

I have Intego VirusBarrier X6 in several macs. When using it with normal/local/mobile users, I do not have any problem. However, when logging as network user (I have a mac mini with lion server 10.7.4), the macs hang after a while. At the beginning, I tried everything: permissions, firewall, sharepoints, etc on both the client and the server. Only when I uninstalled the software on the client, everything works again normal.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Limit File Access For Different Users In 10.7.4?

Jun 18, 2012

We had everything working perfectly with an earlier version of Lion Server. The update to 10.7.3, or 4, seems to have opened access to all files for all users. Much to our surprise, this wide-open access started without warning.  

- We have an external drive that contains all of the company's archives 

- We had set access for one employee to get to the files he needs, and different access for another employee. Neither saw sharepoints outside of their access settings. 

After an update, each employee can see and log in to all sharepoints. There doesn't seem to be a way to limit access for each employee now. I can set 'read' access for one employee, but it doesn't stop the other employee from accessing that sharepoint/folder.

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 :: Average Number Of Users On A Mini Running?

May 2, 2012

I'm in IT at a shop that is 98% Mac based.  At this point in time, we would like to use Lion Server to provide Time Machine backups and software updates to our users.  The environment is as follows:  We are all using laptops, connecting to our network and the internet using wireless only.  The mini has an ethernet cable attached and wireless will not be enabled for it.  All Time Machine backups and software updates will be done wirelessly.  The backups will be mostly text files, although in some instances there will be large amounts of said files.  Of course I will limit and exclude certain folders and file types from backup and I would like to have the user do their first backup via firewire/thunderbolt so the largest amount of data will not be pushed over the air.  I'm currently running tests with a few users doing just Time Machine backups to the Mini and all is going well, but I'm curious as to how many people I will be able to place on one Mini before it becomes too much.  We have about 70 users now and could be close to 100 by the end of the year.  We are a company that will continue to grow too.  Anyone have thoughts or experience with a large user base doing backups to a Mini like this?  How many users could I fit on each Mini? Would I be better off just going for the Mac Pro?

OS X Server :: Changing Administrator Password / Unable To Authenticate On Netinfo Manager

Jan 9, 2007

I started this thread on another forum. I�m coming here because they�ve been less with forthcoming with help or things to attempt. See the related link.I've been handed control of a Mac lab at my school. The former admin was supposed to document, but he didn't. To lock this slack-tastic wonder out of my network I wanted to change the password on my local Panther server.

Being the Unix geek that I am, I SSH'd to the server, logged in as administrator and called 'passwd' to change my password. Now Workgroup Manager doesn't work.

It was suggested that I attempt to edit the NetInfo database directly. I tried via the 'Netinfo Manager', but that didn't do anything helpful. Now I can't authenticate on the 'Netinfo Manager' on the server and I still can't become fully authenticated with the 'Workgroup Manager' on my own account. I am able to authenticate on the server directly, with the GUI and console. I'm able to install software, use 'sudo', etc.

I tired to use the 'pwpolicy' command since 'administrator' authenticates with the PasswordService, but I got an odd error: Code: pwpolicy -a administrator -u administrator -setpassword apple

*** Error: dsDoDirNodeAuth failed with error = -14090
Method = dsAuthMethodStandard:dsAuthSetPasswd

I can't find a reference to that error code anywhere. I have verified that I can authenticate correctly with 'pwpolicy'.

I tried to modify the password with the install discs, but I didn't see any simple tools for changing the password when browsing the CDs. I assume I have to boot off them in order to change the password, but when I restarted the server with the OSX install disc inserted it did not boot off the disc. Is there an easy way to allow for booting off the disc on a Mac platform? I'm only familiar with the PC configuration methods.

OS X :: Unable To Change Permissions In Leopard / Asks For Admin Password

Apr 7, 2010

On 10.6.2, I noticed that in the Get Info window, permissions for a file could be changed without having to "unlock" the operation with the administrator password. This was not the case in Leopard, which required the admin password before permissions could be changed through the Get Info window.

I found this to be concerning from a security standpoint. I had hoped that 10.6.3 would fix the issue, but it still appears to be a problem. I've noticed this on three different machines, two with clean installs of 10.6 and one with an upgrade from 10.5. Does anyone else notice this issue? Am I right in assuming that this is a security issue? The ability for permissions to be changed for any file directly from the Finder's Get Info window without even an admin password seems to be rather insecure to me.
