    Apple Releases OS X Server 2.2 Seed 2 To Developers


    The new developer seed for OS X Server v2.2, Seed 2, is out. In an email sent to developer accounts, Apple announced the new download, and included a link to the seed download source, a set of instructions on how to instal and/or upgrade from various previous versions of OS X Server, and a PDF with the new changes detailed.

    The new addition to the developer seed are the Caching Server, and the Profile Manager is now updated. The former speeds up the download of Mac App Store software by caching the apps locally on OS X Server, allowing users to connect to it instead of directly through the internet. This allows businesses to limit the external bandwidth requirements needed by many users updating Mac app software via the App Store, and saves users time, as internal network speeds tend to be higher than internet speeds. The new service doesn’t require client configuration, and it can be enabled to serve updates from multiple caching servers. The PDF also includes directions to focus testing with the new seed, as below.

    Things To Test:

    • Simultaneous downloads from multiple clients
    • Downloading while the client is moved from one network to another
    • Caching servers in different network topologies, such as single vs. multiple subnets
    • Running multiple caching servers behind a single NAT
    • Compatibility with different network products you may have deployed at your site,
    such as filtering proxy servers.

    The Profile Manager is also updated, making the “Restrict use to devices in the library” setting functional for the first time. Users in groups nested in specific configuration files are now being displayed properly, as well.

    If you’re a developer, head on over to the Apple Dev Center to download this new OS X Server Seed.

    OS X Server Adds Caching Service, More

    Apple released OS X Server 2.2 for Mountain Lion late on Thursday. The update for Apple's server software added a new Caching Service for App Store purchases and software updates, and more.




    OS X Server update improves locally stored app installer and update support



    The version 2.2 update also fixed problems with the Adaptive Firewall, Calendar and Mail services, Contacts service, Messages service, and Profile Manager.

    Apple noted that DHCP service may not automatically start after updating from a previous version of the software. To fix the problem, launch the service from the command line: sudo serveradmin start postgres

    OS X Server 2.2 is a free update and is available via Software Update.

    Apple updates Mac OS X Server to 2.2.1 with new features and old bug fixes



    Apple tonight quietly updated Mac Mountain Lion OSX Server to version 2.2.1. The once stand-alone $500+ OS is now just an app and that app is distributed through the Mac App Store for a very reasonable $19.99.

    Today’s update includes some updates around the Caching Server to allow Mac Apps to cache locally. Also, Time Machine service monitoring becomes more robust while Wiki Server now supports Macs with Retina displays. Apple also includes the ability to use Active Directory groups within Profile Manager and an improved Centralized Certificate management interface.

    The fixes are in for Profile manager deleting apps, SSL errors causing setup failures, and some “timely” fixes for upgrading from Lion Server.

    More information on the update can be found here.

    What’s New in Version 2.2.1

    • Caching Server to speed up download of software distributed by Apple through the Mac App Store.
    • Time Machine service monitoring of which computers have backed up, when they last backed up and size of backup.
    • Wiki Server support for MacBook Pro with Retina displays.
    • Fix for deleting apps uploaded to Profile Manager.
    • Ability to use Active Directory groups within Profile Manager.
    • Centralized Certificate management interface.
    • Fix for setup failures due to an SSL error.
    • Fixes for upgrading from Lion Server.
