We are running Mac OS X Server v10.5.8.
The machine supports 36 iMac clients with access rights using OD LDAP v3.
Authentication for all Mac users is done directly with AD running on Windows Server 2003 via Thursby's AdmitMac.
The setup has been running smoothly for about 3 years now.
The other day I went to make some group changes in Workgroup Manager, to allow access to new software.
I logged in as diradmin with the usual password, (padlock appeared open), but discovered, that everything was greyed out!
The only item I was able to change and save was the diradmin password.
I could not add / remove any users, groups. Could not change any preference settings.
As you can imagine, this is causing a BIT of a problem.
The correct access rights are still being granted to all users, so clients are not seeing anything different.
Any ideas or thoughts as to why the server has decided to deny access, would be much appreciated.
