network. Server Assistant uses easy-to-understand language, so it makes sense to both technical and
nontechnical users. It's streamlined, so it asks only the questions that apply to your situation, such as
whether you want to set up mail, calendaring, and other services. And anytime during the process, you
can get context-sensitive online help with a single click. Next step: management.
Once the Server Assistant process is complete, you're ready for the next stage: managing your server.
Mac OS X Server makes that easy, too, with simple, innovative tools. The Server Preferences
application lets you quickly manage users and groups on the server and, if you haven't already done
so, set up all your key services. And to help you keep an eye on things, a Server Status Dashboard
widget gives you at-a-glance information on the status of essential services such as mail, file sharing,
your website, and more. Now use your server.
Once server setup is complete, your organization's users are ready to take advantage of all the
services Snow Leopard Server has to offer. Before you know it, they'll be collaborating on projects and
working more closely than ever. They can exchange files with each other, synchronize and share their
contact information and calendars, schedule events, send secure instant messages, conduct live video
conferences, send and receive email, contribute to and comment in wikis, publish a companywide blog,
produce and distribute podcasts, and set up websites. And whether they're working onsite or remotely,
they can do it all without jeopardizing the confidentiality of the information they share.Advanced

If you think it takes a dedicated IT department to run a server, think again. Snow Leopard Server is
designed so people of all technical levels can easily manage servers. And it provides advanced
features so you can have total control over your network. Keeping it simple.
Once you've set up your server, the Server Preferences application in Snow Leopard Server becomes
your new best friend. With it, you can quickly manage users and groups on the server and, if you
haven't already done so, set up key services such as file sharing, calendaring, instant messaging, mail,
websites with wikis and blogs, virtual private networking for remote access, and backup settings for
network clients. Status reports.
To help you keep an eye on things, a Server Status Dashboard widget provides a fast and easy way
to monitor your server. You'll get at-a-glance information on the status of essential services such as
mail, file and printer sharing, iChat, and more. The end of manual labor.
Adding clients to the network is quick and easy. In fact, it requires almost no effort. When you connect
your Mac to the business network, it automatically detects and signs on to the server. After
authenticating, the new computer is configured to use the services offered by your server, and your
applications, such as Mail, iChat, and iCal, are configured and ready to use. Disk space monitoring.
Running out of disk space can reduce the reliability of your server. Mac OS X Server includes tools
that monitor disk space and proactively free up space by deleting or backing up noncritical logs and
utilities.With iCal Server 2, it's easy to share calendars, schedule meetings, and coordinate
