Comments and Ratings for OS X Server

Dont buy this product (3.0.3)
05/03/2014 13:46:00 1/5 By rococo ltd
The Apple server team really do need to get their act together. Updates do not install properly shutting down services that render your computer useless. Check the internet for updates stopping at ‘updating services’. It goes without saying that apple deliver some great products and Apple should not be releasing such poor qulaity software as this - they are letting themselves and their customers down. Come on Apple - get your act together - please!

working in 10.9.2 (3.0.2)

ONLY fixes new users? (3.0.2)
26/02/2014 02:16:00 1/5 By RobertoR
Doesnt fix the any of the major issues with OSX Sever!

Works fine (3.0.2)
01/02/2014 15:59:00 5/5 By Joseph Hewitt
Works fine with no issues, very good especially for the price.

Whatever you do: wait (3.0.2)
12/01/2014 12:46:00 1/5 By GortRanand
After an unproblematic and perfectly conventional installation, I have been incredibly frustrated to discover that the most basic functionality - network user accounts - simply does not work. The primary sympton is that network users cannot log on. In one case a user could log on until his password was reset. Since then he cannot log on - despite multiple attempts to re- and re-re-reset the password. I’ve since discovered that this is a common problem. I’ve tried several of the workarounds and the only way I could get users to log in again was to delete the open directory master and start over. But since I’ve done that another can now no longer log in again. It goes without saying that this is a deeply disappointing experience from Apple. Surely Apple will fix these issues soon (right Apple?) because OSX Server IMO will remain unusable until that time. Yes, I can see other reviews that suggest that it works fine, however, any prosopective user of OSX Server should check out the forums first to get a taste of what they’re likely to experience.

Succesfull server set-up (3.0.2)
11/01/2014 15:40:00 4/5 By msidcup
I can’t confirm the negative comments about OS X Server. I downloaded the app about 1 ½ wees ago and have since succesfully managed to install, set-up three users ( one of them a mobile user ), enrolled all the machines ( iMacs as well as MacBooks ), enabled VPN ( and it works ! ) Yes a couple of questions came up but thanks to the Apple server support forum everything was sorted out quickly. Next item on the agenda: set-up our own website ( external one ! ).

The only thing that works is Filesharing (3.0.2)
10/01/2014 18:19:00 1/5 By stevieb143
The OSX Server was a waste of money. The only part of the software that would work was the file sharing. There are so many problems with this, the main reason for me buying this was the device management feature. This has no end of problems. I have spent 12 hours trying to go through the setup procedures competely reinstalled the Mac 3 times. each time i get a different error.

Useless for managing Xserve (3.0.1)
29/12/2013 13:46:00 1/5 By tref
Cannot manage servers using 10.7 or older with this, they have to be running 10.8 onwards. The older server utilities (Server Monitor, Server Admin, etc) for previous Mac OS X versions do not work with Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks. This means most of the Xserve models cannot be managed from this as they cannot run 10.8 or 10.9, only the last model is hanging in there. Deserves no stars but cannot rate that low. Poor show Apple!

25/12/2013 15:49:00 1/5 By DJM_at_home
I had a Mac Mini server running Mountain Lion and OS X Server and had no issues. VPN, Websites, etc all absolutely A-OK. I upgraded to Mavericks and had to also upgrade the version of OS X Server. The install and migration seemed to go fine - except when it came to running the VPN or Website service - it no longer worked. By that I mean, I had no VPN access to the server from inside or outside my home network. I could not even invoke my own local website from the server dialog screen, so all the website info I had was lost. I installed the "bug fix" that Apple released in late December 2013, and absolutely no change. I am so grateful I found this out while I was at home, rather than when I was away on business and really needed the VPN service. In the end, I restored the whole server back to pre-mavericks (i.e. Mountain Lion), and voila! Working perfectly again. I have no idea how Apple could release software this broken, and how they are unable to resolve the issues with it even with the iuge amount of negative feedback.

Great For Local Syncing Of Contacts Without iCloud (3.0.1)
22/12/2013 16:46:00 5/5 By U-KAppleUser
I agree with some other reviewers, setting up local syncing is not very user-friendly but if you follow to-the-letter some of the online guides it is 10 minutes of a job maximum. All my Mac Pro Contacts now show on my new iPhone with no iCloud connection. I have never ever activated my iCloud account!! Why would I want to put all my private details on Apple’s Servers? Don’t be put off, it isn’t very intuitive, I fiddled about with error messages (caused by mistakes I had made) but - if you have a little patience OSX Server is great at getting you out of the iCloud "gun against head" way of syncing.
