Currently Being ModeratedAug 11, 2005 9:08 PM (in response to Graeme White)I finally called Apple and they gave me a fix, It's a lot of work but it did the trick. Turns out if you update an LDAP 10.3 server to 10.4 using the DVD you will not have this problem. However if you use the CD's, and do not take precautions, you end up with a disconnected OD.
Find this article on the apple site 301909, it explains how to avoid the problem and how to fix it.

Currently Being ModeratedNov 6, 2005 2:15 AM (in response to James Cox1)Astounding that this issue still hasn't been resolved in 10.4 media still being shipped new by Apple. This is a huge headache for those of us with older G4 XServes, for example!
