    Magic Triangle Broken - by update???

    Hi,

    I was about to start some work updating and configuring a few bits when i was checking out members of my user groups only to be greeted by 'not found' and on further inspection trying to browse the AD structure i was presented with this error - see attachment

    The only thing that has changed in the last few months was the update to 10.7.3, which i believe included some fixes to some integration issues, but it seems to have completely broken it for me.

    Anyone else had this issue?? or could it be something else thats caused this?

    If you have restarted the servers DCs and OD master and the OD came up (which it usually does) before the Dcs then the Directory Utility will have the AD connection as Not Responding. You can either run the killall command to restart the Directory Service and then on restart it should reconnect or you can simply restart the OD master.

    I would just check the connection anyway even if you haven't restarted the servers. It could also be a time difference between the domains causing the AD connection to be reporting a not responding error?

    You could also check the connection using the dscl command.

    Cheers mate, it was the time re-added the dc as the time server and all is well again, pretty sure it was the update that reset the time server back to apple though!!

    Thanks for your help!

    I have a tendency to cheat that by overriding Apple's DNS entries in /etc/hosts and redirecting to your own DC... That way updates can change the address all they want, it'll just end up at your DC regardless. Brutal, but it works.
