Leopard workstation cannot login to leopard server open directory

I have a Leopard server running Open Directory and I have setup a few user accounts in open directory.  I then took a Leopard workstation and connected it to this open directory using Directory Utility.  If I open Directory on the workstation I do see the accounts that are in the shared open directory so communication seems to be working.

If I reboot my workstation, when selecting which account to login as, I choose Other and then I type my shared open directory username and password but the login window just shakes and I am left dumbfounded.

If I look in Directory Utility, my search policy is below my local directory domains and it is grayed out so I can't move it any higher in the list.

I'm hoping this is simple and I appreciate any help.

Thanks!

Zak

my ldap service is working well and serving both windows and mac clients.
here is what i did:
------------
-in server admin, configure ldap service as 'open directory master' in my leopard server;
-in workgroup admin, click the lock to release it first;
-then select the ldap server from the list, please check the picture enclosed, that's '/LDAPv3/127.0.0.1/';
-then you can manage your user accounts there 'workgroup admin';
-------------

hope it helps.

Thanks for the response.  My setup is the same as yours.  My directory looks great from the server.  Even from a workstation, after connecting to the directory using Directory Utility, I can then use the Directory utility and I see all of the user accounts that I created on the server.  It is when I reboot my workstation I am trying to login with an open directory username that I setup on the server but it will not let me login.  Does this make sense?
