In activing Open Directory on a new install of OS X, I am able to put in a diradmin name/password, and they I get the following dialog:
This computer's host name is invalid.
The host name does not resolve to any configured address of this computer. Please ensure the host name is correct.
I have checked
scutil --get ComputerName scutil --get HostName scutil --get LocalHostName
Each has returned what I expected (the machine name...the domain we are on, and the LocalHostName which matches the ComputerName.
My goal is to restore a backup of a live OD server to this one along with passwords.
