Hi everyone,

 

Our OS X Server 10.8.4 crashed. After booting up again open directory doesn't want to start up so LDAP isn't running which means nobody can access their mails or do anything.

 

When trying to start the Open Directory service in the "Server" app it just says "Unable to load replica list"

 

Looking at the Open Directory Log after trying to switch it on this is what I get :

 

2013-06-28 15:22:53.830872 SAST - 43.7184, Module: AppleODClientLDAP - unable to create LDAP connection context - no server specified

2013-06-28 15:23:23.832488 SAST - 43.7189, Module: AppleODClientLDAP - unable to open connection to LDAP server - unable to create connection context

 

Does anyone have any advice on how to get it up and running again? I'd hate to lose all my users emails and do the server over. I have a time machine backup of a week ago as well which I guess is the second-to-last resort to restore the entire server from there?

 

Please help, I'm desperate here

Thanks
