Classification:Serious Bug Reproducible:Always
After migration from OS X Server 10.6.8 to 10.8.3 it is not possible to authenticate ANY DAV based service anymore. This affects Calendar Server, Contacts Server and Webservices.

Steps to Reproduce:
Have 10.6.8 server running fine with iCal-, Addressbook- and Webservices with WebDAV. Downgrade your server system from 10.6.8 to 10.8.3 to get rid of these working services.

Expected Results:
I expect these services to be working after a migration.

Actual Results:
CalDAV can't be used anymore, login is not possible. Even a correct password will always be rejected.
The same goes for contacts server (CardDAV). WebDAV isn't possible anymore since the configuration options have been removed from OS X Server. The existing and formerly working configuration is removed as well.

Only seems to affect Open Directory Users, not accounts in the local directory.

This renders existing services unusable with no know or documented way to fix them. Effectively a denial of service forcing either a complete new installation which is out of the range for most installations or a switch to another operating system and server solution which is cheaper.
