with Sean Colins

Video: Welcome

(Music playing) Hi, I'm Sean Collins. Welcome to Mac OS X Snow Leopard Server Essential Training. Whether you need to set up a single server to support your own growing business, or dozens of them to support a large organization, this course contains the guidance you need to get the job done. In this course, I'll show you how to set up a new server, and how to migrate data from an old one to new hardware using Apple's new migration tools. Using the new features on the System Image Utility, I'll show you how to build a custom image that can automatically set up hundreds of computers with exactly the software and settings you design, all over a network connection, while booted from a network image.

Q: In Mac OS X Snow Leopard, version 10.6.3, if the DNS address is changed from 127.0.0.1 to 10.0.1.1, as the author suggests, the setup comes back as 127.0.0.1, 10.0.1.1 (note the comma). Why does this happen, and will it affect the server setup?
A: This is a changed behavior in OS X 10.6.3. It will not cause any setup problems, but it is different from the movies online.
