    OSX Mavericks Server

    Hi All, So with the recent released of Mavericks so comes some changes with Mavericks server. However it isn't a free update it is 13.99

    Has anyone downloaded and played with this yet, can you report back to any changes that are worth upgrading from mountain lion server? we are only supporting 20 clients off our Mac Server so not worth us spending money if there are no notable differences that will make my life easier.

    Suppose it depends if you are upgrading your clients to Mavericks? If you are then it probably makes sense to upgrade the server too.

    Cheers

    In our environment we have a mixture of 10.6/10.7/10.8 so Mavericks will hopefully mean we can standardize on what version of OSX.

    I have 10.7.5 installed on our server and just installed mavericks 10.9 on my test client machine. After installing it (downloading it via appstore) I have found that now my IMAC ignores my windows shares I have mounted to the desktop, changed my dock layout, and ignores my set homepage and background….anyone else had these sort of issues?

    I will be installing this tomorrow, as the new Profile Manager features are very handy.

    Hi Mark

    Just so you know, that is pretty much exactly what has happened here, i think you need a Maverick Server to manage the Maverick clients

    Ah, If I update my 10.7.5 server I don’t want it to KO all my clients before I have time to upgrade them…Hum…

    We have just updated OSX server from 10.6 to 10.9 and so far it's working well.

    The update was painless and quite quick on the Xserve. It pulled through all of our existing configuration perfectly and we are just about to update the clients.

    Yeah Mark, same issue here. Our server is running 10.9 with OS X Server 3.0. All our clients running 10.8 work fine but as soon as I updated a client to 10.9, I get the same issues as you. You had any joy yet?

    This might explain a few things for some of you - OS X Mavericks Server / Workgroup Manager
