Mountain Lion Server

Category : Technology/MLServerJourney.txt

I've finally managed to clear out a partition I can run a copy of Mountain Lion Server on. (Thanks, Tony Simek, for your encouragement :-)

I'm going to do a clean install of Mountain Lion. And then load Mountain Lion Server on top of it. 

I'll document my journey through it and my findings. Right now, I've heard from our users that DNS Enabler and MailServe will work right off on Mountain Lion Server, but not, it seems, WebMon.

I'll now get direct experience myself for how my apps work on ML Server. And I'll try to fix WebMon so it will work correctly on Server.

I'm deciding whether to document my journey through Mountain Lion Server here in the weblog or on our Facebook page. I'm starting to think about moving my weblog to the Facebook page because it's easier to update Facebook from my iPhone and iPad, and now with Facebook integration baked into Mountain Lion, I'll probably be able to get screen shots of work in progress directly into Facebook as I'm working on the projects.

Also, there's the small matter of getting comments and feedback. For a long time, I've wished I had a comments and feedback mechanism on my weblog, but it's a home-made weblog and I've never had the time to go back to improve on it. So Facebook might be a better way to go. I'm going to use this Mountain Lion Server project as a test of whether the weblog or the Facebook page will prove to be a better channel for communicating the status of all my on-going projects to all our users who are interested in following the journey.

So, if you're reading this weblog, do visit Cutedge's Facebook page if you're interested in following my journey through ML Server.
