Extensis has made the difficult decision to discontinue support for Apple’s Open Directory services in Universal Type Server. Support has been deprecated in Universal Type Server version 7.0.0. Customers using Open Directory in UTS 6 will be affected during upgrade.
Universal Type Server 7 for macOS and Windows using Open Directory services
During the upgrade to version 7, Universal Type Server will no longer synchronize with Open Directory services. The option is NO longer available in the Directory Services configuration window.
All Open Directory user accounts from UTS 6 are converted to ‘Native’ accounts during the upgrade process in UTS 7. The user’s password defaults to match their user name.
- User name = jdoe
- Password = jdoe
Best practice: Passwords should be changed by users to ensure optimal security practices.
