Hello all,

we just had a catastrophic Finder crash (10.7.5) and we had to re-boot our Mac Mini server with the power button.


As we could not repair the OD database we decided to restore the entire server from a TM back-up that was just a day old.


While OD and the networks accounts could be re-stored we found empty (not a single entry) calendars (belonging to networks accounts).

Further, all enrolled devices (Profile Manager) have been lost.


We now consider to re-store our server from a Super Duper clone or a Retrospect back-up.


Time Machine has been utterly disapponting.


Comments and help from other Lion server users are very welcome.




Mac mini (Mid 2010), Mac OS X (10.7.3)
