Server Admin - cannot connect
I've got some 10.6.8 Macs and a 10.6.8 Server dishing out preferences. I can do all of this from the server but I want to use the Server Admin tools on one of the Macs to do this.
I installed the Server Monitor tools and the Server Monitor and Workgroup Manager work fine, but I cannot get the Server Admin tool to work. Whenever I put the credentials (correct!) in it always comes back with 'The login information is incomplete for this server or is not valid'
The credentials are fine, they work on the Server Monitor and Workgroup manager (and the Server Admin tool when used on the server locally) but I can't see why not from a remote Mac?
Any ideas? I had this before on a macbook and I think I just gave in with it!

After testing more I can even screen share the server, and checking the servermgrd.log on the server shows no errors. Lots of reboots and removing of system keychain etc but all to no avail.
I guess its back to the standard Apple answer of : Reinstall the OS.

is the server bound to Active directory or is it just OD ?? also can you SSH into the server and login ok with the credentials ??
are you connecting to the server via IP or host/Domain name?
sudo changeip -checkhostname to see if the outcome is correct
post your answers back

I can't connect with either name/FQDN or IP address. Oddly enough the server appears in the Available Servers list with the correct name/FQDN and ip address!
I can SSH with the credentials OK
