    Comments about oreilly Using Mac OS X Lion Server:

    Using Mac OSX Lion Server is one of those lovely, handy O'Reilly overview guides that take the place of manuals that should have been supplied with software products. The 200 page volume (it is definitely beyond a brief cover, but less than many of the exhasutive server admin manuals you might be used to) covers all the basic information and moves into some of the more specialised functions you might put an OSX-based server to such as working with streaming video or handling the backend on some of the glossy OSX'y tools such as iCal, or the Address book. This is a recommended volume both for those called to upon to administer an exsting OSX server or similarly useful even if at the point of considering whether and OSX-based server will meet your needs. It is a superb reference manual foremost and specific topics of interest are esy to locate and helpful in isolation.
