OSX - Users cannot login

Hi guys,`
 
At my workplace we have purchased 20x iMacs. They are the late 2013 model.
I setup OSX Server on one of them, I created my users and they could login. I could make some basic settings in the profile manager.
I couple of months went by whilst we prepped for the project that requires the Macs and today I set them all back up but the users cannot login. I can get in to the local account and see that the server name has a green dot against it. Also, They have a valid IP address.
 
The server itself is running and is pingable. Open directory has a green dot too. I am not sure what to do. When I set them up I was doing it a little bit blind. I wonder if there is any easy way of deleting the entire server setup and starting again?

At one point today, one of the clients I tried did login.
 
The Apple setup is also on the inside of a Microsoft Windows domain which is doing the DHCP for the iMac clients. There is a reservation for the iMac with OSX on.
 
Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.
 
Thanks,
Jack

If you have Windows AD domain set up, you don't really need an Apple OD server for network resource access, unless you need that Apple server for some other reason. I can't think of why the login would go away or been weird, but moving them to AD might be a good solution.

Thanks. I have not tried anything with Windows AD. I want to keep Apple with Apple and MS with MS. I need to use the functionality of OSX Server really. I think I may try deleting the Open directory and OSX server and try a reinstallation tomorrow.

Have you checked the time on the server is correct and the time on the clients is correct?
