    Does anyone have good instructions for fully uninstalling OS X Server from Yosemite?

    Currently I understand I would have to remove the following:

    • The Server app
    • The folder /Library/Server


    Is there more I should be aware of? I would like to scrub my mac of Server entirely, without reinstalling OS X (ideally).

    So long as you haven't configured any services, I *think* that'll do it.

    1) If you provided DNS/DHCP, make sure all your devices are changed to point to the new DHCP server and/or DNS server. If you used OD, turn off OD on all client devices.
    2) Shut down all server services on the Mac
    3) Delete the server app
    4) Delete the folder /Library/Server
    5) Reboot and test that everything is functioning correctly.
