    My boss recently bought a new rMBP, and since then has been using his old 27" imac as a secondary display. We were wondering if it would be possible to also use the iMac as a local file server running OS X Server, while also being used as his secondary display? I wasn't sure if there would be a way to select what input the iMac screen would use or anything like that.

    I expect it's impossible, but I figured it's worth a thought.

    You should be able to do this. Command-F2 (on the iMac) will switch the display between the iMac and rMBP.
