Lesson 1. Getting Started > The Methodology

The Methodology

Apple Training Series books emphasize hands-on training. The exercises contained within this book are designed so that you can explore and learn the tools necessary to manage Mac OS X Server. They move along in a predictable fashion, starting with the installation and setup of Mac OS X Server and moving to more advanced topics such as multiprotocol file sharing, using access control lists, and permitting Mac OS X Server to be a centralized storage center for user information and authentication via LDAP and Password Server, and to become a Kerberos key distribution center. If you already have a Mac OS X Server setup, you can simply skip ahead to some of the later exercises in the book, provided you understand the change in IP addressing from our examples to your server and are not running your server as a production server.

Course Structure

This book serves as an introduction to Mac OS X Server and is not meant to be a definitive reference. Because Mac OS X and Mac OS X Server contain several open-source initiatives, it is impossible to include all the possibilities and permutations here. First-time users of Mac OS X Server and users of AppleShare IP who are migrating over to Mac OS X Server have the most to gain from this book; still others who are upgrading from previous versions of Mac OS X Server will also find this book a valuable resource.
