Can anybody download this? Whenever I click on the Download link, I get an error page.

EDIT: Ok, now the link is working.

Is this the same thing that comes on the DVD included with Snow Leopard Server?

Should be noted that the dmg also includes an installer for a iPhone configuration Utility. Not sure as to the use but something to play with.

It's worth noting that while the 10.6 admin tools can administer a 10.5 server, they cannot be used to set up a brand new one using Server Assistant - the assistant reports that the 10.5 server is running an incompatible version and cannot be set up.

The 10.5 version of Server Assistant simply doesn't run on 10.6. So, if you need to set up a new 10.5 server remotely and are running 10.6 on your admin computer, you're SOL.

Unfortunately, I had to set up an Xserve G5 (that has no graphics card so I have to do it remotely) running 10.5.8 Server using my SL laptop yesterday. Eventually I had to SSH into it, get it connected to the internet using networksetup then drive home and boot my Mac Pro into 10.5 to complete setup. Bah! :p
