Mac OS X Server Administrator Topics Documentation

Apple has put up a nice bit of documentation on their developer site on some the more advanced topics that systems administrator may be interested in.

Topics covered include Kerberizing the Mac OS X VPN Server, Creating Mail Account Bundles, Setting Up a Network Library, Setting Up Key-Based SSH Login and Incorporating User Images in Open Directory.

All of this material is available for reading directly on their site, or you can download the PDF for on the road/plane reading material.

  • i’m trying to follow these directions (at least the part where one can create a
    shared network library) using my 10.3 server. from what the instructions are
    telling me to do, there is little difference between 10.3 and 10.4 in this
    respect.

    however, each time i try to save the network mount settings for my "/shared
    items/Library" sharepoint, i get the error "An unexpected error occurred while
    writing to Directory Services."

    my domain is controlled (sic) by an active directory server on the windows
    side, and i’m logged into the domain as admin – at least it successfully
    authenticates to make changes.

    any suggestions, or modifications to the published instructions, to get a
    shared network library in 10.3 (the clients are 10.4 if it makes a difference) –
    it’d be nice to put some fonts and whatnot in there…
