I have been messing with an old PowerMac G4 running OSX 10.5 Leopard Server trying to get Open Directory running on a small network I set up for testing purposes. I can't find anything useful online about my specific situation.
My network hasn't got, and never will have, an internet connection, but I have multiple Mac machines connected either through Ethernet or WiFi.
I found on the internet that I would need a DNS server with a forward and reverse lookup name and so I set the DNS service up with a hostname I randomly picked. I don't think the fact I randomly picked a name matters because the network will be offline. Is this wrong?
When I try to set up an Open Directory master, I get: "This server has not been configured as an Open Directory Master. Error has Occurred! Error value = 73"
sudo changeip -checkhostname I get:
Primary address = 192.168.1.15 Current Hostname = PowerMac.exampledomain.net DNS Hostname = PowerMac.exampledomain.net The names match. There is nothing to change.
I do not get dirserv:success = "success". Does this cause error 73?
Am I doing something wrong?
