10.8.2 / Server 2.2


Attempting to turn Open Directory fails with the message:


An error occurred on the server while processing a command.

The error occurred while processing a command of type 'setState' in plug-in 'servermgr_dirserv'


How can I resolve this?

    • Have you looked at the log files?
