Remove or turn off Open Directory Authentication from LDAP plug'n?
I've been imaging labs and about 90% of the computers are giving me the following message at the login screen. We have AD & OD binding and we've been running this for years so I know this would pop up for a little bit when computers first startup but this stays on the screen period. At first I thought it was AD causing this issue but turns out it is OD.
I can login with AD credentials without an issue. It seems that it's OD that's having an issue. If I try to use one of the users I have on the OD server it shakes out and won't login.
Since I have no use for OD/LDAP Authentication I removed LDAP from the "Search Policy Authentication Tab" from "Directory Utility" and this does fix the issue at the login screen but I can't be doing this manually on hundredds of computers.
If I remove OD all together then all the computers & labs will lose printing, shares, settings etc. since we use the OD server for all of this.
Oh and though OD Authentication breaks as seen by the "Network accounts are unavailable" message the computer do still get all the settings from the server still such as printers, shares, etc.
