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.

comment How to Monitor Windows Hosts Network Bandwidth through SNMP?
Cleaned up question - Cacti creates graphs just like MRTG does. The tool Cacti uses to make it's graphs is actually an evolution from what was behind MRTG. Don't understand what you mean by take reports in PDF or Excel - can you clarify?

comment Hyper-V and Drobo Pro
FWIW, AJA is a company that makes video input cards - the AJA System Test allows you to test the throughput of hard drives. Indispensable in checking if your throughput is bursty or will stay steady so you can capture video. LAFCPUG used a similar application made by AJA competitor Black Magic to benchmark.

comment Is there a tool to log internet connectivity on a mac?
@IRTFM - You don't need OS X Server you can do it with OS X Client as well - you just may need to install an extra package. (Not having installed on client myself I don't know what package(s))

comment Running Mac OS X (non-server) on an Xserve?
Server Monitor uses ipmitool to get the Lights Out Management information (which is installed on Server and Client). Since LOM runs separate of the OS you should be able to get the LOM info whether it's running Server or not. (Have not actually tested this personally) See support.apple.com/kb/HT2773

comment Link Aggregation between Xserve G4 running Leopard Server and Netgear GSM7224
Not much help - but with an original 1Ghz G4 Xserve I wasn't able to get LACP to work at all running Tiger. Newer Xserves worked fine the the GSM7224 however.

comment Where is my mysql log on OS X?
How did you install MySQL? The pre-installed MySQL with Mac OS X Server, MacPorts, or the official MySQL package?

comment What is the Open Source CMS of choice?
The pay to play culture is what turns me off of Joomla despite using it - that and a lot of the developers don't really realize what GPL actually means for their code as well and some get really pissy when you opt to modify.

You can legally virtualize OS X Server - on Apple hardware.

comment How to deploy 10 new iMac and configure it programatically
@James: Mac OS X Server can be installed on any desktop Mac (or Xserve). Without hacks it does not allow you to install it on a laptop of any kind. I've got Server running on a Mac mini beside me right now.

comment How to deploy 10 new iMac and configure it programatically
It's possible to run a single Mac as a NetBoot server but not ideal. See the comment on the question for the instructions.

comment Tips on speeding up boot time on Mac OSX
@Kevin: By default in OS X closing the lid will put the computer to sleep, the contents of the RAM are saved to disk. I've met very, very few people who play with pmset to change closing the lid to go to sleep. However it's still a good point.
