    A Most Elegant Home Server

    Recently moved into a new place with my partner and while I'm a :apple: addict she'd rather I don't infest the vibe of the whole house with tech. We like to play Minecraft together on our own server and I like hosting other simple servers from home. I was using a 2007 Mac Mini but the 3GB Ram...

    Sierra is the last full Server option

    After a full day of comparison between High Sierra and Sierra as a Home Office Server, I reverted to Sierra as the main OS. I had been running on High Sierra, but the full functional control from one interface is superior. It also makes debugging Content Caching easier. Now, if I could just...

    Enable Server App 5.6.3 on Mojave for Remote Access

    I would prefer to user the server app to remotely manage my High Sierra OS Server running v5.6.3. Has anybody found a way to enable running the server app on Mojave for remote management. Screen Sharing is not as elegant.

    Best 10GbE options for 10.6 & 10.12 servers

    Hey Folks— I know there are a few other 10Gigabit Ethernet threads here, but I have some specific needs and thought maybe it would be better to start a fresh thread for them. Please forgive me if you disagree! :) I would love to be able to deploy some of the new AQC-107 cards and have them...

    Profile Manager Content Filter restricting OWA

    Hi all, I decided to beef up our iPad security by adding the usual social media, gaming and gambling websites as blocked URLs in the Profile Manager's (macOS server) iOS Content Filter settings. I mainly did this as our web filter seems a little unreliable after a massive network upgrade over...

    Creating a Mac mini server at home, looking for suggestions...

    I am running into issues at home with multiple Macs, multiple users, storage issues, and managing updates. I know enough about all of this to be dangerous. What would be the best way to manage all this using Mac server? What I envision is each user being able to use any device (iMac, several...

    Automatically connecting to Wifi before login

    Hi, I'm setting up my new Mac Mini (2018) as a home file/video/etc server. Old one (2011 server, running OS X 10.13.6) reconnected to Wifi after remote reboot without any problem. New mini unfortunately connects to WiFi only after login which makes it unusable for remote work (I need to reboot...

    MP 1,1-5,1 Mac Pro 3.1 RAID 1 issue

    Hey guys, I'm currently using a very old Mac Pro 1.1 as a server running 10.6.8, it has 4 HDDs that are paired for RAID 1 and they're finally running out of space. I bought 4 new drives and created an identical RAID structure in the hope of using CCC to simply clone the volumes and everything...

    Mac mini 2011 Recently Purchased

    I have a 2011 MBP 17 inch that is my full time computer, however I saw a Mac mini for $200.00 so I jumped and bought locally on FaceBook market place. I upgraded the HD to a 960 SSD that I already owned (was used in my MBP and contains the same contents) and it has 8G of ram. Now, I am...

    Server RAID5: SAS/SATA vs. NVMe

    Sometimes there are just too many good options... :P I am developing a plan for a Mac Pro server for a client of mine, and have been planning an SSD RAID5 for the main data store. I was liking this pretty cool solution from MaxUpgrades that situates 4 SAS or SATA SSDs in an optical bay, and...

    Disable WiFi with Profile Manager

    Hi All, I've been handed the task to get a MacBook useable for an exam, which means restricting it to within an inch of it's life. I'm using Profile Manager on Server (Version 5.1.5) and managed to block out System Preferences and all apps apart from Word. The thing that I'd also like to do is...

    Mac Pro 1,1 graphics card for ElCap server duty

    Hey Folks— I have some 2006 Mac Pro servers running Mac OS X Server 10.6.8 that have done a fantastic job over the years. However, I'm considering upgrading to 10.11 El Capitan (via Pikify app hack) for some improvements in the file sharing service, among other things. We all know this about...

    Server Duty: cMP vs. Mac mini 2018

    I've made no secret of my opinion about the (over)pricing on the new Mac mini in other threads, and my own (personal + consulting company) tally of Mac Pros is now up to 6 :D (1 x 2006, 1 x 2007, 1 x 2008, 2 x 2009 (4,1>5,1), 1 x 2010)...so clearly my thought process is always leaning toward the...

    Mail Server Alternative?

    I'm setting up a new server. And with the death of "OS X Server" aka "Server.app", I've been doing everything by hand. Which isn't that bad at all really. apache config is super intuitive. Setting up a VPN server is very easy too. Configuring `pf` firewall is oddly quirky but has an easy config...

    There was a problem connecting to the server

    Multiple people in my organization are losing it as we can't seem to disconnect a server that no longer exists. We have been trying to remove forever.

    Follow-up: TRIM supported SSDs in Snow Leopard RAID1?

    So as not to muddy the New BootROM 138.0.0.0.0... thread w/ more of this offshoot, I hoped I might solicit some advice about this TRIM issue in a new thread. Basically, I have a pair of SSUBX 512GB blades in a RAID1 mirror in a server. The read speed after the firmware update (and using Slots 2...
