Mac OS X Server 10.5 Leopard Essential Training
Video Duration: 0s 11h 5m Beginner


View Course Description

In Mac OS X Server 10.5 Leopard Essential Training, instructor Sean Colins explains the three types of Leopard servers (Advanced, Workgroup, and Standard), and shows how to set up a server environment and configure each of the major services. The tutorial breaks down this complicated subject and focuses on the elements that are essential to getting up and running. This title is ideal for experienced administrators who want a primer of the changes in Mac OS X Server, or new server administrators looking for a complete and detailed walkthrough on how to set up a Mac OS X Server.

Topics include:
  • Understanding the three types of the Leopard server Using server administration tools on the Leopard client Setting up DNS services Configuring mail services on each type of server Applying web services to users and groups Testing Wiki access from a web browser Setting up calendar sharing using iCal Server Configuring VPN services Setting up a NetInstall Server Setting up PodCast Producer from top to bottom
Developer IT
Mac OS X Server


Apple released Mac OS X Server Leopard 10.5 in late October of 2007. This was the fifth release of Mac OS X Server, and Apple made us wait longer for this release then they have any other release since they started releasing Mac OS X Server. This one however is really worth the wait. We finally get some new services that we've been asking for for a very long time. We got shared contacts, we got shared calendaring. We have the ability to be a centralized backup server. We have the ability to run a Wiki server. We have many different things that are completely new in this operating system, things that we've never seen before. Podcast producer. Something we've never even conceived we would want to have before. So with all of these new services, this title is going to be a lot longer than the previous Mac OS X Server title that was done on Tiger server, and this one is going to be organized slightly differently.

Please take the time to look at the Understanding This Title movie. It'll help you to understand how things are organized and where you should go within the title to see different ways of configuring the operating system and to understand the tracks and the way that we organized things. This title is not designed to be walked straight through. It does require some bouncing around, but that's because of the three different styles, or personalities, or types of servers here that we have available to us in Mac OS X Server. So to communicate what we've got here, we've got each of our servers with a different color background. I just want to take a little bit of time to explain to you which of these colors means what, so you know what you're looking at. So any time we're using the standard server, you're going to see this darkish blue background. Any time we are using the Work Group server you'll see a screen pop up that has this dark gray background. Advanced Server will have this green background, and Podcast Producer later on in Chapter 17 will have this light gray, almost whitish background. Now that being said, during all of that time, the standard desktop background for our client system, which is where we're actually recording all of this stuff, is going to be this very, very nice aqua looking blue color.

So any time you see the aqua blue color, that is our Leopard Client and the other colors we already went through. So hopefully that's clear. There are many things about Mac OS X Server that remain hidden underneath the surface, unless you know they're there. And we hope to introduce you to all of those things through these movies. Lastly, I hope that through these movies we assist you in not only learning how to use Mac OS X Server effectively, but also figuring out how to configure it quickly and easily, so you can get your Mac OS X Server up and running in the quickest amount of time possible, and to do so effectively.

Keep in mind throughout the title that there are no exercise files for this title.

Q: I followed the steps to setting up SMB on the Mac server side correctly, but when I went to the Windows Vista Home Premium client machine, I opened Network, viewed Devices on This Network, and I was unable to see the server. Are their other steps I must take to cause the Windows clients computers to see the server and access the AFP files?
A: In other parts of the title, we explain that you cannot access an AFP share point from a Windows computer. You must enable SMB on that share point as well. SMB is the server software responsible for serving the share point to Windows machines. Make sure to review the SMB setup movies, as well as the entire file sharing chapter.
