    Humm…Have you checked time on your server? Do you use AD accounts to log in? I had some issues managing our 10.9 Imacs using WGM, we now use Profile Manager

    Apple moth-balled Workgroup Manager with the release of Lion (10.7). They did this because they wanted everyone to use Profile Manager instead for 'Mac Management'. But . . . educational institutions in America complained and Apple resurrected it without really changing it in any major way other than to make it launch in the OS without crashing.

    However it does still work after a fashion with Mountain Lion (10.8) and/or Mountain Lion (10.9) even though it's not really compatible with either of them.

    It does depend on what you're trying to do though?

    If all you're interested in is looking at an LDAP database, it's fine. If you're trying to make major changes to policy settings expect a random problem or two? If you're trying to make changes to the AD database (which you only have read only access to) you will definitely get this type of error message or similar.
