You might not realize that some server settings or actions can configure your server as an Open Directory master or replica. If you perform one of these actions in OS X Server (Yosemite) using OS X v10.10.3, you should reboot your server.

These actions configure your server as an Open Directory master:

  • Using the Open Directory service to create a new Open Directory domain
  • Using the Xsan service to create a new SAN
  • Using the Profile Manager service to configure Device Management
  • Restoring from a Time Machine backup of an Open Directory Master, then opening the OS X Server app and reconfiguring your services

These actions configure your server as an Open Directory replica:

  • Using the Open Directory service to join an existing Open Directory domain as a replica
  • Using the Xsan service to join an existing SAN as a controller
  • Restoring from a Time Machine backup of an Open Directory Replica, then opening the OS X Server app and reconfiguring your services

After you've configured your server as an Open Directory master or replica, restart the computer once.
