does that help?

oh by the way, i don't mean that you can't get those services otherwise, it's just that this nifty panel is blocked if you enable ftp.

and i still haven't figured out how to get calserver or time machine working without them.

If you think setting calserver up might be easy... bwa ha ha ha...

not ready for prime time!

it is positive that minis can run server officially now
the mini is way faster than the d-link NAS i had here last week. that took 72 hours to copy 40 gb. !!!

What a journey.
I have been most disappointed with the Mac OS X Server admin since I began using it. Although I feel that a good percentage HAS TO BE my lack of Apple training in that area. However, the genius bars KNOW NOTHING that can help me. I have never been able to get HOME directories to work...ever. I want all users here to login, auth, get their 'home' (desktop, etc), so that their computing experience is the same no matter which of my multiple Macs they use. But can't get it to work. I thought it was a DNS issue, but that part is resolved. I think it just does not work.

Anyways, I think they still have generations of UI tweaking to go.

What a journey.

I tried the home crap back in the days of Tiger server and it totally didn't work. I did manage to have to reinitialize both server AND client.

Oh those in search of a quiet place may find that there is one again...

In America, the only respectable form of socialism is socialism for the rich.
I thought Mac OS X Server was all about Free Love™ -- you know, buy the server package and that's it, one version, not multiple, no per seat licenses... recall that ballyhoo?

It was a good plan but they've gone all MSFT on the licensing of the thing.

There is only two options and have only been two for years.
10 user and unlimited (automatically comes with the xserve).

rino, I think Bahamut just means that if you go and tweak stuff on your own in text files ("advanced configuration", as you often do in OSXS) it disables preference panes. Reasonable when you might tweak files in a way that the GUI tools can't parse them, but just when turning on FTP? Come on.

Johnny K. has it right there. If you can turn on FTP in X un-server, why the hell does it screw up server preference panes in server?

That mindset is pervasive amongst all "enterprisey" software vendors. Oh yes, we have made set-up Simple And Easy. There are Wizards for All Common Tasks.

And should you / the junior staff progress from "drooling button pusher" to , oh say, someone who mostly has figured out How The Thing Works, and want to scriptify something simple just to Make Sure Your Days Are Not Wasted waiting for some other script to parse some simple task that needs to be done 52 times a year???? Oh, dreadfully sorry. That is now "Custom Software Integration Services" -- those disable WIzards. You'll probably want to hire our Professional Services Division to help with that....

...but don't worry. After we charge you for the service, we'll give you a discount on a nice maintenance and support package just in case something we do breaks.

I do not belive so. Spanning will support anything you can hook to the external, but the internal stays native.

" Users are in the habit of getting free stuff and it's impossible to break the habit. . . We don't see Sun (being) able to monetize it." Nice. Really ought to wonders for morale. This is special too: "Sun plans to keep most of MySQL employees, about 70 percent of which work from home."

Gotta love the knives that Mercury takes out for this one:
The agreement calls for Oracle to acquire all outstanding shares of BEA for $19.375 - a hefty premium over the $17 a share Oracle originally offered, but less than the $21 a share that BEA's board of directors was demanding. ... BEA came under pressure to sell after Wall Street investor Carl Icahn began acquiring shares in the San Jose company last year. He eventually became the largest shareholder, Originally, Icahn had agreed with BEA's rejection of Oracle's $17 a share offer, but later he began agitating for a sale at that price. But Icahn fell silent after signing a non-disclosure agreement and getting a close look at BEA's technology and financials.

Implications: "if Carl Icahn things you're doomed, sell to anybody who'll have you..." OUCH!

So, once upon a time, Delicious Monster said that they were ready to release version 2 of their Delicious Library application but it relied on features that would only be available in Leopard so they were going to release it as soon as Leopard came out. Here we are, 2 1/2 months after Leopard's debut and they don't even mention version 2 on their site. It's obviously on the way since an example of one new feature can be seen online.
