Server Admin Tools 10.6.2

Apple has released an update to its Server Admin Tools package that enables users to manage Mac OS X Server 10.6.2. In the latest version, the Server Admin application is more stable, the Setup Assistant now enforces LOM password length requirements during setup, Server Preferences now includes an option for adding guest access for file sharing, the System Image Utility now includes Netboot/Netinstall model filters for Macs produced in October 2009, Workgroup Manager has resolved two different issues with creating users via the user interface, and the Xgrid Admin now enables you to connect to Mac OS X Server 10.5 Leopard Xgrid controllers. Complete release notes are available on Apple's Web site. The update is recommended for remote administration of Snow Leopard Server, and is available via Software Update or the Apple Support Downloads page. (Free, 241.4 MB)

Server Admin Tools also includes ipmitool, which is no longer in the base Snow Leopard install.

Does anyone know if this makes group changes immediate? I added a group membership last week that didn't show up for at least 30min, but was reflected 3 days later.

Also, SAT 10.6.x should be compatible with 10.5.8, for people running both Leopard Server & SL Server.
