Final Release Date: September 2006

Mac OS X Tiger Server Administration gives Unix, Windows, and Mac administrators what they need to master every aspect of this server, from the command line to Apple's graphical tools. Full of much-needed insight, clear explanations, and troubleshooting tips, the book shows readers how to utilize Tiger server's capabilities and features in their individual environments, while highlighting the differences between Mac OS X and other server platforms. Topics include setup and configuration, Apple's Open Directory, fundamental network services, file and print services, security, Internet services, and workgroup management. Included in this updated edition are new chapters on Tiger's iChat server, Launch Services, Certificate Services, and Apple's Software Update Server.

Apple's Mac OS X Server is a unique phenomenon in the IT world: an enterprise-capable platform with a simplified user experience. With this architecture, the server can be integrated into a variety of environments: from traditional Mac networks as a fileserver, to broad capabilities in mainstream Unix- and Windows-based IT markets, including large-scale web application services.

A must for any server administrator!

Comments about oreilly Mac OS X Tiger Server Administration:

Mac OS X Tiger Server Administration is the best guide you'll find available for one of the most robust server platforms around. Though the book builds on the knowledge from O'Reilly's preceding book, "Mac OS X Panther Server Administration", it stands on it's own, going from basic setup to in-depth administration tasks.

Any serious OS X Server administrator should pick this up as there have been significant changes from OS X Server 10.3 to 10.4 and Apple's documentation leaves much to be desired. One of the most important changes is Tiger's inclusion of ACL's which add multiple levels of specific access to share points and their underlying folders and files.

The only drawback of this book is the lack of a hardcopy version for purchase. Because of code references, it's better to have something you can pull off the shelf and crack open. As cumbersome as it might be to do so, at least you can print out the PDF and put it in a binder.

Comments about oreilly Mac OS X Tiger Server Administration:

EMU's Computer Science Department raided the "Buy Students Pizza" pop can fund to buy this manual. The "why" presented here is worth even more than than the "how-to" within. Several of my students will benefit greatly from this manual.

Bargained-for members of our IT division will also be able to read it. (Shhhhhhhhh! They don't have a pop can fund for such expenses.)
