I've configured a Lion client machine to connect to my OS X server and use it for network logins. The diradmin works okay, but I tried to use a regular user, and it doesn't allow any other users to log on.
Where can I start to troubleshoot this?
I'm guessing from your tags this is a 10.5 Server with 10.7 clients?
In your Open Directory user configuration/preferences are you using portable home folders? (With the user in question selected in Workgroup Manager, choose the Preferences button and check the "Mobility" section)

(assuming server is 10.5)
Check out the Service Access Lists (SACLs) on the server under Server Admin -> Settings -> Access. Make sure you aren't restricting access to Login Window (or something similarly named).
Also, is the workstation in the Workgroup Manager? Are any of its preferences being managed, again Login Windows, like what users or groups can use that workstation to login.
