Send Article to a Friend

Apple has rolled out its latest collection of remote administration tools, documentation, and utilities for Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard Server in its Server Admin Tools 10.6.3 update. The update contains the latest versions of iCal Server Utility, Podcast Composer, Server Admin, Server Monitor, Server Preferences, System Image Utility, Workgroup Manager, and Xgrid Admin. Changes include improved Server Admin performance on IPv6 networks, increased support for late 2009 27-inch iMacs, and a fix for an issue in Workgroup Manager that could cause a user's primary shortname to be changed when adding or editing other shortnames. Full release notes are available on Apple's Web site. (Free, 236 MB)
