    Network Library resource sharing with OS X Server

    Hi,

    im sure this has been answered elsewhere but i couldnt find it searching, but i want to setup a network library, so anything in there, replicates to the same folder on all the macs bound to the server (thats how i believe it works anyway lol)

    But im looking around the server, in services etc, but cant find anything to do with setting up a network library or resource sharing.

    Ive installed comic life on all the macs, and simply want the registration plist file to live on the server, and register all the copies of comic life.

    i contacted comic life and they said to install it here when you have the network library setup

    /Network/Library/Application Support/plasq/Licenses



    But thats where i get stuck, so any help would be greatly appreciated!

    My version of Server admin is 10.7.

    Open Server admin and then click on AFP.
    Click on Share Points.
    Browse to the folder that you wish to share out.
    Click the share button
    In the bottom pane click, click on share point
    Tick enable Automount. A drop down window will appear.
    Choose the shared Library Folder option.
    Enter the Directory Admin Username and Password.
    Click Save.

    I'm not too sure of the folder structure after this. You may need to experiment a little.

    Also I may have given you info you already knew. If so please ignore this post completely

    Also don't forget that you can use ARD to push out the plist file.

    Specify the full path in ARD as /Library/Application Support/

    Copy the plasq folder into this location.

    You may need to fix permissions on this file too after copying. I have run into problems before with this.

    right I've created a share of this folder /Library/Application Support/plasq/Licenses but this is not the file path that comic life needs as it requires Networtk/Library/Application Support/plasq/Licenses, on the server hd it won't allow me to create a folder called network as it says there is already one with this name;

    Hodge,

    I got as far as these steps.

    Tick enable Automount. A drop down window will appear.
    Choose the shared Library Folder option.
    Enter the Directory Admin Username and Password.
    Click Save.

    but there was no option to click enable automount

    This only becomes available once you click the share button at the top to share the folder selected.

    Hope this helps

    Have you got any of the sharing services active? Either SMB or AFP will need to running to allow for sharing out folders.

    I am working on a 10.6.8 server with Server admin 10.7 on the client. Lion Server may be different as some of the services had their access removed. I can't remember if the sharing services were removed. However...

    Server_Admin_Services.png

    Click 1, Click on the server name in the list of servers.
    Click 2, Click on the settings icon.
    Click 3, Click on the services tab.

    This should bring up a a list of services available for use. Clicking on the tick box and then Save at the bottom right, adds it to the list of services under the server name on the left.

    Next click on the service name and then click start towards the bottom of the Server Admin window.

    I'm using 10.6.8 server and I think it's a little different to what Hodge said. Go to server admin and select your server. If you haven't set this up yet, it's a great feature that allows you to view whether services are enabled, can show you usage statistics, sharing points, the list goes on. If you then go to the settings tab furthest to the right and then on the services tab below that you should be given a list of services. Simply tick what you want enabled and then you can check if it is active by going to the overview tab.

    I would add a screenshot but won't let me upload it.

    Stupid double posts..

    Just realised as well that I basically said exactly what Hodge said. 2 Good answers are better than one I suppose
