After the latest update for OS X Server (2.2.1) all my network accounts are gone and I cannot create new ones. There home folders are still on the disk but they do not appear in server app. Users cannot login.

MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid 2012), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    dscl /LDAPv3/ -list Users


    sudo tail -50 /var/log/opendirectoryd.log


    sudo changeip -checkhostname

    I think you just need to rebind to open directory.


    In (on the server), under the Tools menu, choose Directory Utility


    Click the lock to unluck


    In Services, edit LDAPv3


    You should have an entry in the table for, delete that entry.

    (this doesn't delete data, its just an association of that machine to the open directory database)


    Click new


         Leave all defaults, then click continue

    Hit OK and quit Directory Utility


    Recheck your server.. hopefully that does it.

    Do you have just the 2 default sites?


    What do you have in your default site directory?


    ls /Library/Server/Web/Data/Sites/

    By any chance, bound to AD? Once I upgraded to v2.2, any new accounts created in AD could not be imported into OD.

    Kind of kills management of accounts in Profile Manager.


    So I was wondering if v2.2.1 resolved that issue. Any feedback would be helpful.
