readers missed something?

Comments about oreilly Essential Mac OS X Panther Server Administration:

Other reader reviewers here have asked where Tiger is in this volume...but this question is completely irrelevant in a Panther Server book. Did anyone here read the title? The description of this book is clearly aimed at Panther Server. Not Tiger Server.

Why would someone buy a Panther Server book to give them guidance for v.1 of Tiger Server...?

In most cases, I would wonder about making an abrupt in-line transition to a brand new server platform. If you need the book, wait for it. It will come.

Better than others BUT

Comments about oreilly Essential Mac OS X Panther Server Administration:

I found the Visual QuickPro Guide for OX Server was useless in proper configuration of Mac OSX server in a mixed domain with Windows 2003 server AND with Mac Open Directory being Prime controller. This Book Essential Mac OS X Panther Server Administration gives alot of attention to issues like this.

Now for the downside. We had already converted to Tiger server because of the weakness of Apple's SBM/CFIS(Windows) compatability.

With Tiger there are many new things AND new configuration steps. This is the downside of this book coming out when it did. I could have used this book better last year.
