This usually happens when the clients cant resolve your servers hostname.
Therefore their DNS config must somewere be able to resolve the servers hostname.
I got that error all the time before I fixed my DNS config, so in my DHCP server config the Primary DNS is pointing at my server (Open Directory/xserve). This might fix it, try that.
You can also do a quick thing on the users side. Select the user that you have picked to log and you are getting this error. Open Workgroup Manager and select the user then click the advanced tab. Switch "user pasword type" to crypt password and then type in any password. Click save, then select another user and then go back to the user where you switched the password. Now switch it back to Open Directory.
This has worked for us with users getting that same error.

hit escape key
Login with the user you were having problems with...
