    Thinking about buying osx server, but with High Sierra on the horizon. Is the Updates normally free for osx server, After you have bought it?

    I had purchased the server app many moons ago when it first came out. It shows as a new purchase for me now, so I'd assume you would need to repurchase it for every major version of macOS.

    The upgrade from OS X Server 3 (Mavericks) to OS X Server 4 (Yosemite) was a paid upgrade. OS X Server 4 to OS X Server 5 (El Capitan) was free. OS X Server is now renamed to macOS Server and is version 5.3 for Sierra. Based on that I would assume the upgrade will be free for High Sierra.

    Hope that helps.

    Once you have bought server, the upgrades are free.

    Didn't work that way for me. I bought it when it first became available on the App Store and now it requires a repurchase.

    Unless Apple decides to charge for the upgrade. Post #4 right above yours details how it's worked in the past. We don't know if the High Sierra version of Server will be free or not.

    Perhaps you were using a really old version? The last three upgrades have been free for me. I purchased at the Mavericks release and I am now running Sierra. I am running the latest version and have never paid for an upgrade.
    • OS X 10.9 Mavericks
    • OS X 10.10: Yosemite
    • OS X 10.11: El Capitan
    • macOS 10.12: Sierra
