comment How do I change the Software Update server address on a client Mac (to use my own server)?
@AlberT: I've updated the post, this should help with the 10.6 issue. If you use PlistBuddy what server does it say it is attempting to connect to?

Are the messages only stored locally (eg. POP account) or is it possible to resyncronize the account (eg. IMAP)?

comment OS X Login Authentication Against Leopard Server
Using Workgroup Manager you can disable logins by either unchecking "Access Account" on the first tab of information when you click on a user, or the second tab (Advanced) setting the login shell to /usr/bin/false or something similar. That said with WGM - which directory are you creating users on? /Local/Default is local to the server, whereas /LDAPv3/127.0.0.1 is Open Directory. You can see this in the top left under the Server Admin button.

comment OS X Login Authentication Against Leopard Server
Are logins enabled on OS X Server? When debugging why it's not working check the logs (system.log and console.log) or on the Server check the logs that the authentication succeeds.

comment VMWare Fusion: Bridged Network Using a Bonded NIC
2.0.6b1 didn't help either - there is no traffic going in or out.

comment VMWare Fusion: Bridged Network Using a Bonded NIC
Thanks for trying - it was promising. I'm not sure if it is partly a 10.4 issue that traffic is dropped as I can get the MAC address to show up in the arp table by attempting to ping but no traffic actually goes in or out.

comment VMWare Fusion: Bridged Network Using a Bonded NIC
It did fix the /dev/vmnet0 issue but I get no throughput. The Tokamak scripts allowed me to make a separate vmnet to attempt the bridge with but it failed to connect as well. 2.0.6b1 was just released so I am going to attempt to use that to see if it affects anything (but from the release notes it doesn't say so).

A more current manual can be found at: images.apple.com/server/macosx/docs/… (Chapter 7). 10.2 is just a wee bit old.

comment Having Mac OS X on a XEN virtual machine
@AlberT - Virtualizing on non-Apple hardware is not permitted by the EULA of Mac OS X Server. The EULA of Mac OS X (Client) does not permit virtualization.
