client login shimmy


Server is running 10.3.8 as are all client machines...

one has stopped logging in to server... no apparent reason... I can login as admin locally on the client, I can ping the server address from the client no problem, I can locate and administer the client from ARD on another machine... I just can't login from the client using _any_ user names? all it does is give me the login shimmy.

anyone know what's blocking this?... is there a set of corrupted prefs... I've done a repair permissions on it to no avail

TIA, Dan
have you tried reading the LDAP data out of your OD Master with something like dscl? If you can't read, you won't be able to login. I'd then recommend throwing directory services into debug mode and reading out of the debug log to see what's going on when you attempt a login.
