Open Directory issues - OS X 10.11.6 - Server 5.1.7

I am working with a business that has an all Mac network and a few servers. There is one master OD server and a few replicas. Some time ago, I demoted an old Mac server to put a new Mac Mini server in its place. The process of getting the new server setup was challenging, but, it finally did work (mostly).

One of the things I am still trying to figure out is, why certain users can login to the computers but others cannot. If a user that cannot login on one, moves to another computer, they sometimes can login. It's difficult to know why this is the case and I am looking for some input from the community if possible.

Another thing that raises an eyebrow is all the references I see in Directory Utility to the old Master, where I believe it should be the new Master.

Does anyone have any thoughts?

Thanks,

Nate

Make sure the machines are all bound to the proper server, and make sure IT is the DNS server for those machines. i encountered similar issues with a customer and it turned out to be that some users changed their DNS settings to point to googles dns servers not the OD server. another one i encountered was when the OD server lost network connectivity and when it came back the connection with some of the clients was broken and i had to log in as the local admin and rebind the machine to the OD server.
