Since you are using a machine with OS X 10.5 as a controller you
should look at this PDF ->
First you have to think if you really need Open Directory for Xgrid.
Are you going to have many different users running Xgrid? As far as I
know Open Directory and Kerberos authentication are quite delicate
about the DNS settings. This might be your problem. In the tutorial
you also have a short chapter on DNS server and a method to verify it
is working correctly. Since you will be using non-server version of
the OS X as a node I believe you will have to use authenticated
binding (checkbox under Open Directory service). Somebody should
correct me, if I am wrong.
