Hi,

I have an open Directory running, that is kerberized. As of now, that server uses another machine as his DNS server, but I want to move the DNS onto the same machine.
When I change the network system preferences and point the dns to himself, users can't log into their open directory accounts anymore. Passwords get refused,
I've searched high and low in the open directory options but cannot find anything DNS related. What other steps do I need to take in order to switch the DNS?

thanks in advance

    Hi Lazken, have a look at pages 8-14 here about setting up and testing your DNS.

    Hi Lazken, I suspect your issues are more than DNS but also with your OD setup.
    What do you get if you type
    sudo changeip -checkhostname 
    in the terminal?
    if everything is ok you should get something like

    Primary address = 192.168.1.10

    Current HostName = server.domain
    DNS HostName = server.domain

    The names match. There is nothing to change.

    How was the migration from idefix to caesar done?

    Cheers

    Did you enter your domain in the Network prefpane search domain field?

    When you add new domains in DNS GUI make sure the reverse IP still points to the main domain/host name.
