# Difficulties setting up OD replica on Lion server

I am attempting to set up an Open Directory replica server in Mac OS X Lion server 10.7.1 I have the master set up and working (as far as I can tell) fine. When I go to the second machine and attempt to set it up as an open directory replica, it looks like it works as well- the setup dialog runs through with no errors, and the replica server shows up on the master as ok. However, the replica server never show itself as being a replica - as soon as I refresh the view in server admin, it says Role: Standalone directory again. Sometimes it will show itself as being a replica briefly, but only until the server admin view is refreshed. How can I get the replica role to stick? Thanks.

FYI- there is a Keychain First Aid option in Keychain Access you can use to try to repair a keychain before deleting the whole thing and starting from scratch. –  Meltemi Dec 18 '12 at 23:45
