After removing everything useful in this app.
this literally does nothing. nothing at all. it is 66mbs of nothing.
Love our Mac Server to manage devices. We own a small business but manage many devices and even though the first versions of this were problematic the newer update is great. Also, Apple has given many hours to helping me update the new server since the old one went away. Their service has been over the top in performance and helpfulness as well as friendly attitudes from their service department.
Check out Server Plus! DHCP and advanced email servers are back better then before!
I can't believe Apple even has this in the App store. Worthless. Wouldnt even use it if offered for free.
Should have headed the many warnings. However, saw a video on the tube showing what great funtionality it had. (This was an older version of OS server.) Stay Farrrr away from this.
This is NOT A SERVER!!!!!!! Let me repeat: this is NOT A SERVER!!!!!!!! There is NO file sharing service in this software. All file sharing and user management has been relegated to the regular Mac OS System Preferences. That's it! Just regular file sharing. There is NO SUCH THING AS A MAC SERVER beyond that. It took me SIX HOURS on the phone with Apple and intenet searches to finally get somebody on the phone who told me what I'm telling you here. SO SAVE YOUR $20!! Time Cook does not do refunds. Or put your hair back in after you pull it all out. So disappointed.
This app opened up all the hidden features of OSX and made your mac a fully featured robust server. It is still all there they have just made it impossible to access... WHY!
Fisrt of all, when I originally purchased this software, it was the best way to admin multiple Mac-based servers. Now, they have stripped all of the functionality out of it. macOS Server wouldn't be worth it if it were a free utility. Apple no longer cares about their pro community, and I am very upset to have purchased more than 25 Apple computers, in the hopes of unifying my ecosystem with what USED TO be the best media-creation hardware on the market. Now, I am struggling to get basic server functionality out of what have turned into very expensive paper weights. It's sad to see Apple giving the middle finger to the people who have been behind them for 20 years... Thanks for everything, Apple, but it's time to go elsewhere.
-Server My Mac computer (user accounts, screen sharing) Alerts (disconnected volumes are not responding OK) Logs (logs) Stats (Process stats monitor, like a limited version of task manager in Windows) -Accounts Users (users also available in settings) Groups (Also available in settings) -services Profile manager (Apple School, business managers, device enrollment, and volume purchase for apps and books). -Advanced (Xsan Fancy folder sharing) Pretty much personally share the same feelings as other posters here, I would personally really like if we could sling in controls for a database and web server. I look forward to seeing the future of this application.
