Initial Lion Server Configuration

If you install Lion Server on a Mac that’s already been configured, there’s not much initial configuration; Lion Server uses the same local administrator user name and password, as well the same network settings, as before.

Starting Remote Configuration

You will be doing a remote configuration in this chapter, as if the server were in a server room or network closet down the hall from you without a video monitor to rely on.

The Server app will search for and display all the computers on the local subnet that are running Lion Server, whether or not they are configured. If more than one Lion Server is displayed, you need to know the MAC address of your target computer to be able to choose it from the list.
