Troubleshooting

Because Open Directory includes several services, there are several log files used for tracking status and errors. Fortunately, you can use Server Admin to view status information and logs for Open Directory services. For example, you can use the password-service logs to monitor failed login attempts for suspicious activity, or use the Open Directory logs for all failed authentication attempts, including IP addresses that generate them. Periodically review the logs to determine whether there are numerous failed trials for the same password ID, indicating that somebody might be generating login guesses.

The directory-service error log and the directory-service server log both list which plug-ins loaded successfully and which ones failed. This information is useful when your server is bound to another directory service.
