I have set up my Xserve 10.3.4 using LDAP Open Directory Master, and set up my client machines to authenticate with LDAP. The clients will login just fine, until I either restart the computer or shutdown and then restart. At that point the client machine can't authenticate the user.


I then hooked up one client machine directly to the server using a dumb hub and it worked fine. When I hook it back into the campus network same problem again.


Suggestions?

    i have seen similar issues with auth to a mac osX server running both netinfo and openldap when spanning tree is turned on. i would disable spanning tree on your switches and try the auth again.
    the reason it works with the dumb hub is simply that is doesn't support spanning tree
