Snow Leopard Server - Issue deleting computers from Workgroup Manager
Posted on 2010-11-28
I have a site with two snow leopard servers.
One is the Directory Master, the other a Replica.
The IPs and names of the computers have been changed and although the DNS is working and looks right, there is something very deeply amiss with the setup.
Mail is installed and running on the replica without issue.
Couple of issues include:
Cannot open Server Preferences on the Replica.
Cannot connect correctly to the iCal server on the Replica.
Cannot delete any computers in workgroup manager.
I know these are all related to DNS and the name change.
Rebuilding is not an option.
Demote the Directory services on the Replica without breaking mail.
Can I simply not have a replica?
Do I need to join The replica server to the Directory Master?
Can I delete all the keychain entries on the Replica that reference the old server name and IP without breaking anything?
Look forward to some workable solutions.
