Magic Triangle authentication priority

Hi all,

We implemented the Magic Triangle to our 2k8 AD domain and Mac Mini server. We have this scenario:

1. The Mac OS X server went down.
2. AD is still up for authentication and file sharing.

When that happen, majority of the AD users on their Mac Pro clients weren't able to login using their AD account even though AD DC is up. I've changed the authentication priority to have AD on top of /LDAPv3/OD in Directory Utility. There must be some other settings I need to change?

Can someone please advise if something is needed to be configured to allow AD users able to login at all time when OD is down?

Thanks.

Just want to add if I remove OD from the authentication list then AD users would get logged in without much delay. I don't know what side effect it would cause but at least users can log in when OD is down.

Where do you store the user home folders?  Are locally cached or do they depend on a share located on a mac Server?

Also, did you create your users in AD and OD?

AD User home folders are locally cached, mac clients are not using Server to store their profiles.

We don't have any OD users in the environments, only AD Users.
