Hello all,

the issue is not new but I found no way how to repair the OD database. I admit I am no expert and I rely upon senior advice.


I ran the restore command as described here to no avail:


http://www.prestonlee.com/2009/07/08/recovering-a-corrupt-openldap-database-on-o sx-server/


What happened ?


After a Finder crash we had to re-boot our Lion Server (10.7.5) with the power button and after that the Network Accounts were all gone because OD's LDAP, Kerberos and Password Server were no longer running.


I re-stored the server from a TM back-up just the day before and I got back the network accounts but this is probably just a last resort.


What is the quickest way to restore OD services in Lion Server ?


Thanks for your help,




The TM restore from the previous day's backup did NOT RESTORE the following:


1) calendars of network accounts

2) Enrolled devices (profile manager)


I shall post these experiences in a separate thread.
