as we are slowly upgrading our hardware, we are wondering if it is possible to connect a 10.8.2 server to a 10.6.8 open directory master?


reason being that we are replacing our file server (upgrading an xserve from 10.5) which was connected to the 10.6.8 server, however since this also runs our mail server we would like to keep the OD master on it.


apart from creating a completely new user database on 10.8.2 and working both servers in paralell we are wondering if there is an easier way... any thoughts, experiences, etc. would be much appreciated.

    You can not join it as a Replica.  This is not supported.  However, you can join it as a domain member (much like adding a client) and then "kerberize" the services.  This will allow access to the the user/groups list for assignment of access rights.
