I have two computers running Mac OS Lion Server. The first started out as an OD Master and I wanted to migrate that over to the other. Here is the process I took:
Initial: 'A' is master, 'B' is unlinked.
1) set 'B' as replica of 'A'
2) set 'A' as master.
3) set 'B' as replica of 'A'.
Steps 1 and 2 went through fine, but 3 failed. I then made 'A' standalone and tried to re-bind it as a replica with no avail.
after investigation, i saw some errors in 'B's logs and decided to just nuke it and create a clean master. This went through without a problem, but I'm still getting errors trying to join 'B' as a replica. I dont see any errors in 'B' that would show any problems. in 'A' i see the following error in the slapdconfig.log:
FATAL : Could not retrieve HOST GUID for parent
I have not found any information on the internet for that error and i have not found any other errors on 'A' that would hint at why i cannot make it a replica.
Anyone have any ideas on what I might be able to try?
