Anyone ever use macOS Server on a Mojave based Mac? Just wondering any advantages/disadvantages it may have. Any feedback or observations is appreciated.

Thank you.

Apple removed a lot of functionality from Mojave Server, it's basically crippled now and not worth the price for most people. More info can be found here.
[doublepost=1553885893][/doublepost]My Mac Pro 5,1 is still running High Sierra for two major reasons, and this is one of them.

Thanks for the response and the link. Read the features they took out starting from version 5.71 and makes it not worthwhile (although $19.99 cost is measly). I do not have a very extensive network (just household wide) so I will not install then.

Some of the functionality has been moved into the OS like Content Sharing. Other features like web, wiki and mail server have been dropped. Xcode stuff has been moved to Xcode.

Mostly I miss having a central admin point.
