This section contains conceptual information on troubleshooting LDAP issues.
If you are creating a multiple domain environment for the first time, you must create the DC tree in LDAP by adding the appropriate entries for domains, containers, users, groups and resources. If the DC tree does not already exist when using a Calendar Server utility, such as cscal, you might see the following error message: "Initialization failed .... exiting".
Be sure that your DC tree contains at least one (default) domain under the DC tree root. Create the DC tree structure using instructions found in 13.2 Creating New Calendar Server Domains.
