Jaguar Server

Posted:

It's complete or at least feature frozen. The Server I think usually has a few more days to go GM since it has all those additional apps. And they don't need as many copies so a couple days won't make up too much in bringing them up short.



Anyone know when the 622-page manual showed up. The old one was 350. I think they might have consolidated some of the other manuals into this one. There's no way they doubled the knowledge base.



Oh wait, Page 2 says "7-26-02". Haven't gotten to read much yet. Can't wait though, but I won't be using it anyway, I just have to convince my institution to use the thing. They'd love Workgroup Manager.



Edit: The above date doesn't say much except publish time. But if they new everything by then I would suspect a GM time same as Standard. Also, this 622-pages is smaller than the 350-pages in file size. But the pages might be smaller too, I didn't check the old one.

    Where did you get the manual? Is it posted at Apple or is this from another...uh...source? I've been really wanting to get my hands on this so I could distract myself before the 24th.



    thanks,

    It's on apple's site in PDF.



    apple/macosx/server



    Look in the right hand column. It's the 10.2 administrators guide dated 7/26.

    Jaguar Server has been rock solid for me. So many new features and extra stuff it's hard to keep up with it. Very good stuff.

    Any examples? I haven't done much research, but I can't think of many reasons I would upgrade (I have a copy of the low end 10 connection X Server).



    Here are the things that piss me off about the current version:



    FTP - still haven't gotten this working to my satisfaction. More granularity needed + I would like it to work!



    Mail Server - this is a huge problem. Not close to "enterprise strength". You can't have 2 email addresses with the same name for 2 different virtual domains?!?! That is nuts.



    DNS - No GUI? I thought that was the whole point I bought an Apple Server product - making things easier for the stupid people like me!



    I hear horror stories working as a print/file server but I only use mine for DNS/Mail/Web currently.



    So using it for those services, is there anything which would make me want to shell out $500 for an upgrade? And don't list SquirrelMail - I already installed it on my version!

    Everything is overhauled in 10.2 server. I haven't checked some of those things specifically but I do believe DNS is gui-fied. There's so much new stuff in 10.2 Server, it'll be worth the upgrade I think. Full LDAP v3 compatibility and server, Macintosh Manager for OS X now, vastly improved tools for server settings and stats. Plus it's faster... I have it running on a B&W G3/400 and the interface just screams. It's faster than OS 9 ever was on that machine.



    Bunch of new remote admin tools too.

    Didn't try netbooting yet eh? How about netinstall?? Sever monitoring (non xServe)??? Sorry but you talk like it's 'done' but don't rally the troops just yet... it still has some time to bake in the oven...



    Don't get me wrong... so far it tastes really nice but it just ain't done yet... Oh and what on earth would lead you to believe DNS has a gui?!?! <img src="confused.gif" border="0">

    There's a Server Monitor app that's made specifically for XServe. Since I don't have an XServe it doesn't really tell me anything. However, Server Status is another app meant for any Mac running Server. It gives you all the stuff you need to know including graphs for throughput and CPU usage, gives you more detailed information about your server and its drives, more info about the people connected to it, that sort of thing.



    I haven't tried netbooting or net install yet.
