comment Network account problems with mac server OSX 10.6 Snow Leopard
I'd still fix this -- OS X Server really wants to be able to find itself via reverse DNS, and not all functions will work properly if it's not set up. I'm also still not convinced this isn't the cause of the freeze. So humor me: fix the DNS, and see what happens.

The MDNS traffic suggests you may be using an AD domain name with a .local suffix. Is this the case?

comment rsync not behaving the same in script vs shell
Don't store the rsync command in a variable, it doesn't work. See BashFAQ #50: I'm trying to put a command in a variable, but the complex cases always fail!. Also, echo isn't showing you what you think it is... try running echo rsync -avzhP --delete-after --stats -n root@vmhost2:"/vmfs/volumes/OfficeProd/iDRAC\ Nat" "/srv/backups/prod" and note that it prints the string AFTER quotes have been removed.

comment rsync on OS X changes folder's group name to _lpoperator
I think this is the correct answer, but I have a minor correction: on OS X, /etc/group doesn't necessarily have correct info; the actual data is in /var/db/dslocal/nodes/Default/groups (which only root has permissions to read directly). Instead, use something like dscl /Search -read /Groups/_lpoperator or dseditgroup -o read _lpoperator. In either case, they'll tell you its GID is 100 (but they'll call it the "PrimaryGroupID").

comment How to enable DIGEST-MD5 SASL mechanism in Open Directory?
My password server log shows a WEBDAV-DIGEST authentication event when I log into the Wiki service; this conflicts with the Apple support doc you linked, but fits with the fact that your password server seems to support DIGEST-MD5 but not WEBDAV-DIGEST. WEBDAV-DIGEST and APOP both depend on the server knowing your actual password, so they require the RECOVERABLE "hash" (actually, encryption) type... and with pwpolicy no longer working for this, I'm not sure how to enable that. I'll do some more looking around, and see what I can come up with.

comment How to enable DIGEST-MD5 SASL mechanism in Open Directory?
@eggyal: Ok, I got ahold of a Yosemite OD server... and apparently they've changed it significantly in the new version. The ldapsearch also only lists GSSAPI and CRAM-MD5 on mine, but the wiki authenticates fine. So, if pwpolicy won't work so straight to the source: telnet 127.0.0.1 apple-sasl, then issue the command LIST. Mine replies with +OK (SASL "GSSAPI" "DIGEST-MD5" "WEBDAV-DIGEST" "DHX" "APOP" "CRAM-MD5" "MS-CHAPv2" "SMB-NTLMv2"). Also, check /Library/Logs/PasswordService/ApplePasswordServer.Server.log while trying to authenticate, and see what shows up there.

comment New to bash - “Unexpected end of file”
Does the script have windows-style line breaks (carriage return followed by linefeed, rather than just linefeed)? If so, that'll prevent bash from recognizing then<cr> as a keyword and it'll search the rest of the file looking for then, not find it, and give this error.

comment OS X Mavericks (or Yosemite) on new VM in Vsphere?
You should understand that Apple is primarily a hardware company -- from their perspective OS X and OS X Server exist to encourage you to buy Mac computers (which is why they give OS X away and charge just $20 for Server). Allowing them to run on non-Apple hardware would completely defeat this purpose. I'd love to see Apple sell a generic-hardware-virtualizable-server license for, say, $1000 (which would completely make up for what they're not making on the hardware), but that's just not the way Apple thinks.
