As much as I hate to say it, but if all the desktops are windows, I'd say you need windows SBS. Very easy and straightforward to install and set up for a SOHO. If you ave the time, and especially the knowledge, sure, you can install Linux (why Ubuntu when there's Debian and CentOS available escapes me, but it's your choice). It will do everything you need, ...

Try hostname.local or the FQDN. You really SHOULD be able to use the FQDN. If you can't, it means your DNS server isn't set up correctly. All Apple OS X Servers need DNS to be set up correctly on the DNS server side. This is critical to getting almost all of the services set up correctly. Since the OS has already been installed, verify that DNS is ...

I experienced the same problem debugged the original script, for me the default expect timeout of 10 seconds was causing the embedded hdiutil command to be aborted. I fixed this by adding: set timeout 120 In the expect script. Now the script is working fine again. My script: #!/usr/bin/expect -f set date [timestamp -format "%Y-%m-%d"] set ...

You could enable Apple Remote Desktop via the command line As for the SSH tunnel, the main port is TCP 311 ie: ssh -N remoteUsername@remoteServer -L localPort/connectToHost/remotePort for ssh -N remoteUsername@remoteServer -L 311/localhost/311

I would recommend using Google Apps. The standard edition is free for up to 50 users, or you can go for the premier version which has very advanced Postini spam protection.

IIRC, ntpdate is used to set times, but ntpd is used to maintain the time on a system. Look in Server Admin --> --> Settings for the NTP on/off check box. Don't worry about the config files. If you can't get a solution from the GUI, then the following website might help: http://docsrv.sco.com/NET_tcpip/ntpT.no_inet.html Good luck.

Check if the racoon service might be going crazy in the background and kill it, optionally restart the VPN service. (asked and answered this question as part of documenting a problem I just fixed and couldn't find a solution for on Google) In my case the racoon went into limbo, eating up CPU, after trying to connect to the VPN using a Windows XP client ...

If you have OS X server and your users are using AFP, you can send them a message in the AFP section of the Server Admin tools. Also, if you are using Apple Remote Desktop and have it authorized for all computers, you can send a message even if users don't use AFP.

Many information can be found on google. Running Mac OS X on a non Apple hardware doesn't comply with Mac OS X license agreement. This is really not the right place to ask for this... there is dedicated website for this.

Depends on what you are most comfortable administrating, really. You run a mostly Windows environment, so my first suggestion is to go with Windows, and your primary "ugh" factor with Windows is the cost. Big downside, but that's the cost of using Windows in a mostly Windows environment. If you like and are comfortable with Linux, go with that. The main ...

It's not clear exactly what you mean by "load balancing" in this context. If you want to use both ethernet ports to connect to the same switch in order to gain higher throughput (2Gbps) and also to gracefully degrade to 1Gbps if either cable becomes unplugged, then you should set up 802.3ad link aggregation. 802.3ad is a layer-2 network concept, which ...

They only one that works right now is the ATTO Xtend SAN initiator... rock solid and supported with 64 bit... they created a new release to support snow leopard!

It's probably /etc/named.conf. You should also copy over any other files referenced therein.

You can disable list reminders on a per-list basis. The option is "send_reminders" and it's in the notifications section of the general options page. http://www.gnu.org/software/mailman/mailman-admin/node13.html The script sends the notifications is "mailpasswds". On a Debian system it's in /usr/lib/mailman/cron, but I do not have access to an OS X Server ...

There are a variety of tools that'll let you manage client software centrally: Apple Remote Desktop, radmind, filewave, Puppet, JAMF's Casper suite, ... as well as the option of scripting it yourself. However, all of these will involve a fair bit of up-front effort and/or expense; for only 3-4 clients, it's generally easiest to just manage the computers ...

.htaccess files are disabled by default in OS X's Apache config. You can enable them with the Server Admin GUI by selecting the Web service in the sidebar -> Sites in the toolbar -> your virtual site under that -> Options tab under that, and enabling "Allow All Overrides". Or, equivalently, you can edit the site config file (under /etc/apache2/sites) and ...

Hopefully this will be enough to get you started: How do I use the Apple-provided version of Mailman under Mac OS X Server? The general consensus seems to be that Apple's packaged version of Mailman is not well regarded in the community exactly because of its deviations from the standard Mailman package; there are also resources at the link above to help ...

I would suggest having a look at Apple´s Open Directory Documentation and either import the Apple Extended Schema into your OpenLDAP (which should take care of all the record mappings) or manually map Apple´s custom ldap-style attributes (eg. apple-user) to the correct OD/AD class (eg. Users). Also have a look at this mini-tutorial.

Your document root points to /var/www and not "/webapps/myapp/public". And you need to make decision - you will either manipulate the conf files directly or use Server Admin. You can't do both because it leads to a total mess.

Is the office network (including the server) on a private network (i.e. behind NAT)? You can tell by looking at its IP address -- if it starts with 10. or 192.168. or 172.16-31. then it's a private network. If this is the case, the problem is likely to be that the office computers are trying to reach the server at its public IP address (which is actually ...

my guess would be '/var/www'. as far as i understand this is the unix/apache default directory for web sites.

You should be able to set up an LACP aggregate between the two if they are on the SAME switch. Pages 166-167 of: 10.6 Advanced Server Admin Guide I know of no Teaming software available to allow failover across switches. It's another missing enterprise feature.

It turns out that the wikid's log file was not created which I noticed in the ServerAdmin.app >> Web >> Sites >> Logs. In order to create the log: cd /Library/logs sudo mkdir wikid sudo chown teamsserver:teamsserver wikid sudo 775 wikid Finally, restart the web service.

I feel like the question is extremely vague and lacking alot of important information. However, quotas per user can be managed with Workgroup Manager, and Individual queues can be enforced with Server Admin. You can google search this and produce easily the manuals for administering this and other managed services. If this information feels lacking, than ...

Did you try to connect with your System Administrator/root account? Normally you should have created a Directory Administrator when first setting up Open Directory (likely named diradmin). You need to connect with this credentials. Also, make sure you can connect to the LDAP port on the server (389) and if it is blocked by the firewall (as it should be), ...

@sidewaysmilk; [edit] Oops, somewhat mis-read the question. Per http://www.eecis.udel.edu/~mills/ntp/html/ntpdc.html , a server labeled Stratum 16 = "a stratum of 16 indicates the remote peer is unsynchronized". If you explicitly trust 192.168.1.250, I'm fairly certain you will first have to use ntpd, and second ntp.conf will need a fudge for that server. ...

Ok, here is what happened because I just had the same exact problem and this is also a production web server, but re-installing was a last resort. I could not find a solution posted on any web site, and the conclusion on this web page did not exactly make me feel optimistic... In the Console log it showed me the following: 12/9/10 9:40:37 PM ...

For the price, the Standard (free) edition of Google Apps is pretty hard to beat. Do keep in mind that if your internet connection goes down you can't send email, even to people in the same office. Do also pay attention to their terms of service and SLA's and such like.

I found this solution via Google a while back and it helped me deal with some very annoying iCal shenanigans with a personal calendar and an Exchange calendar. When other people sent me Exchange invites, the invites ended up in my personal calendar. I always appeared as "Free" in Exchange even though I had a meeting scheduled in my personal calendar.
