    Hey guys,

    I am mainly a Windows Administrator by day; however, the radio station
    that I am involved is an all Mac environment.

    The college that is essentially their ISP changed IP addresses for the
    server and after this happened, people can no longer use their network
    user accounts on the Mac OS X server; however, they can mount groups.
    Any suggestions of what else is need or might be wrong?

    Thanks much,

    Toni P.

    I assume we're talking about Open Directory accounts?

    Changing the IP in the Network preference pane doesn't automatically
    change it everywhere it's used. In particular, if the clients were
    finding the Open Directory server through DHCP, the DHCP server has to
    be updated to give the right address. Also, Open Directory
    authentication requires that DNS for the server work *in both
    directions*, so check that reverse DNS works for the new IP.
