Part I. Server Installation and Management

Beginnings can be very delicate times, particularly where servers are concerned. By its very nature, a server affects more users than a workstation would; ensuring a proper initial configuration thus becomes doubly important. This section of the book concerns beginnings—both the beginning of a particular server’s lifetime (planning and installation) and the beginning of an administrator’s experience with Mac OS X Server, from its basic graphical tools to more advanced system administration and troubleshooting techniques. In every case, care is taken to undertake a thorough analysis, highlighting the configuration infrastructures Apple has placed around various open source tools as well as the fundamental operating principals of the underlying daemons and services themselves.

Chapters in this part include:

Chapter 1, Designing Your Server Environment
Chapter 2, Installing and Configuring Mac OS X Server
Chapter 3, Server Management Tools
Chapter 4, System Administration
Chapter 5, Troubleshooting
