Book: Apple Training Series: Mac OS X Server Essentials (2nd Edition)
Publisher: Peachpit Press
Welcome to the official Mac OS X Server Essentials training course offered
by Apple Computer. This book serves as a self-paced guide and is designed
to help you build the basic skills you need to effectively administer Mac
OS X Server. Apple Training Series: Mac OS X Server Essentials details the
graphical tools that Apple provides to configure system services.
The primary goal of this book is to prepare technical coordinators and
entry-level system administrators for the tasks demanded of them by Mac
OS X Server. To become truly proficient, you need to learn the theory
behind the tools you will use. For example, not only will you learn how to
use Workgroup Manager—the tool for managing preferences for users,
groups, and computer accounts and lists—but you will also learn about
the ideas behind preference management, how to think about policies
and control of resources, and how to set up preference and policy management
to support your environment.
The only Apple-certified book on Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard, this comprehensive reference takes support technicians and ardent Mac users deep inside their operating systems, covering everything from networking technologies to system administration, customizing the operating system, command-line programming, and more. Keyed to the learning objectives of the AppleCertified Technical Coordinator certification exam, the lessons in this self-paced volume serve as a perfect supplement to Apple’s own training class and a first-rate primer for computer support personnel who need to troubleshoot and optimize Mac OS X as part of their jobs. Self-quizzes and chapter tests reinforce the knowledge gained along the way.
