Product Description

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.

Format: Paperback
I am looking at buying this book but wanted to make sure it was for OS 10.5. The Search Inside option that Amazon are offering is not a true reflection of the book as it is showing images from inside the previous book 10.4. The way I found this out was to search for the book via an American online book store, find a picture of the front cover which said it was for Leopard, note down it's ISBN number and then find it here on Amazon.

If you look carefully the ISBN number of the book does not match that of the one on the Copyright page viewable through the Search Inside options.

Therefore this book appears to be the right one if you want a Leopard Training book.

Hope this helps.

Not easy reading unless your already knowedgable in network management to some degree. But if you're upgrading to Leopard server, or just instaling for the first time, this will undoubtedly be of help in working your way through the set-up and management of an Apple network. It should be noted that although this book was originaly intended as a study tool for the '10.5 Server Essentials' exam, this exam is no longer on Apple's training curriclumn. It is still however a valuable study/training resource, if you're going to be working with Apple systems.

I bought the Tiger Version previously, I bought this Leopard Version when we upgraded our servers - the book is really handy - it's not a classroom in a book, but a good supplement to Apple's pdf documentation.

This book has been really useful in setting up our server. It tells you everything you need to know before you delve into the detailed Apple resource documentation. It does also include background on services such as DNS which helped us to understand what we had to do, a godsend for server side novices like us. You can supplement your knowledge with additional reference material included at the end of each chapter. Coupled with the OS X Support Essentials this has been an excellent buy.

First I bought Mac OS X Server Leopard following Apple's campaign "no IT department required". It turned out that server OS is undocumented by Apple. You heard it right. If you google for Linux or FreeBSD solutions you will find plenty and if it is Mac OS X Server there is none. You may think that this is because OS is all automatic and flawless (as many Apple products) but you'll be wrong to think so. Not the Server. It is just not considered as Proper Server OS by many (for a reason), hence no talks, hence no support. Let's move on as this review is about a book not OS. Book is a great design and feel, but very poor in content. It is like an overview of what Leopard Server is capable of without going into any sort of detail. For instance I bought a copy of OS to setup my small business email server. Why OS X Server is because I wanted to spend no time in future maintaining it. Well I was wrong as it took me a lot of hair to get it set up (installation is quick) and I ended up with starting FreeBSD server from the scratch instead. Back to the book. Mail paragraph is only few pages deep and has no information whatsoever on how to add second (or any more than one) email domain should you want to have multihost email server (in my case only two domains .co.uk and .com were needed). It's not extraordinary nowadays to have more than one email domain What else. Well everything is like that in this book. Overview-ish, shallow-ish and uninformative making you google, ask, research. Why one who 'doesn't have IT department' needs to do that when M$ SBS email server is just few clicks from being fully operational? I can't say. Mac OS X Server is raw and still new although it's been 8 years since it's first introduction.Read more ›
