A Guide To Using Mountain Lion Server (OS X 10.8)

I’ve been doing a number of postings on how to use various features of the latest version of OS X Server. Given that WordPress is pretty much a reverse chronological listing of articles I’ve written, I thought I’d put together a listing of the pages that I’ve done for OS X Server 10.8 (Mountain Lion Server) in order to offer a more pedagogically aligned way of reading these posts. As such, here is the Table of Contents for these posts: Introduction Managing the Server Configuring Services Troubleshooting Command Line Misc

  1. Thanks for doing such a great job on all of this. I love Apple, but they often don’t give us much documentation on their server products. I recently found out that Lion Server does not turn on ACLs for SMB shares by default. The only way to turn it on is to modify the com.apple.smb.server.plist file to enable ACLs. If this is in Apple’s server admin guide, I can’t locate it. It’s in a KB article though. http://support.apple.com/kb/TS4149?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_US

  2. Thanks for this huge and useful guide!

    Any experience with the OS X Server Volume License?

    I have several OS X Server running on Mountain Lion, and even with the Volume License we bought, it is still bound to the Apple ID which was used to download the App with the Redeem-Code. This is not really practical, and definitely not Enterprise friendly…

    If you have any info to share, it would be great!


    1. Regrettably I don’t have a better way. I’ve been doing institutional Apple IDs for servers which double as a way to do the APN side of things as well… Wish I had a magic wand with this one but it seems to be the future.

  3. Thanks for sharing your experience with the OSX Server 10.8. It helped me a lot when upgrading my two servers!!! Nice work!!!
