10.9.5 Active Directory Bug

Darrel Bayani -

Users that login on their Macs using their SUNet logins (Macs that are bound to the SU domain) who upgraded to 10.9.5 are experiencing issues with extremely slowness. This issue is due to a bug with the opendirectoryd process. Apple has since posted a knowledge base article on how to fix this issue:

After updating to OS X v10.9.5, Activity Monitor might report high CPU utilization for the process "opendirectoryd" on Macs that are bound to Active Directory. You can edit the Active Directory search path to correct this issue:

  1. Choose System Preferences from the Apple menu.
  2. Click the Users & Groups icon in the System Preferences window.
  3. If the lock icon is locked, click it and enter the name and password of an administrator.
  4. Click Login Options, then click Edit.
  5. Click Open Directory Utility.
  6. If the lock icon is locked, click it and enter the name and password of an administrator.
  7. Click Search Policy.
  8. Click Authentication.
  9. Remove "/Active Directory/SU" from the search path, leaving "/Active Directory/SU/All Domains” (substitute your domain for example.com).
  10. Quit Directory Utility.
