Basically, when I try to log into a network user account the login window shakes as if the password is wrong... which is not the case. I know it also shakes when there is an authorization error...but let me list what I know thus far:
- on the login screen from a client computer, it says "Network Accounts" available
- you can sign in on the server itself using a network user account
- users have been made in the /LDAPv3/127.0.0.1 directory and have had their home folders created in an automount share point using AFP on /Users (I clicked the "Create Home Now" button to make sure)
- AFP is enabled and the service is set to be used by anyone
- I checked ACL/POSIX permission on the share points, and network users have access to them... double checked with the effective permissions viewer.
- From a client Mac computer, I can log into a local account and access the server through the network with a network account (no problems here, can access the network user's home folder normally after mounting)
-Users are set to log in using Open Directory in the advance tab of workgroup manager
For awhile I was having a DNS issue (checked with doing the whole "changeip -checkhostname") but I resolved that. While I was having the DNS issue though, I still couldnt sign on to the network user account, and I was getting a different error, it was very generic... it just said an error had occurred (no code, no clues).
SO, I'm a little bit at a loss of what to do. This isn't for anyone just yet; I'm just practicing on a personal mac mini running OS X Server 10.6, it's set as an OD Master.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
