However, my expectations were set by the much deeper coverage available in the Apple Pro OS X (not server) Essentials volume.
What was missing?
- Discussion of how running the various server components impact the startup/shutdown process.
- Discussion of how "Safe Mode" and other alternative modes impact the server components
- Discussion of any kind of troubleshooting
If you want help setting up an OS X Server, this book will help you.
But if you want to KEEP it running, this book is utterly useless.
Reviewing a book like this is always a bit difficult because much of how a book is arranged either matches how you think or it doesn't. To me, I like this book because it doesn't just tell how to do something but a bit why and the prerequisites. That other book got me very frustrated in a few areas, because it did explain how to accomplish something, but it doesn't reliably tell me what needs to be done BEFORE that task is accomplished. With Server many tasks depend on a series of events occurring before them, and to me, this book spells it out better than the other.
Another reason I like this book is because it has lots of pictures, probably three times as many as the other book. Yes this may sound silly bit but it is not. Actually seeing the screens that you need to act on is a nice feature. Many many times that other book may explain how to perform some function, but one step or another is not completely clear, and this book solves that with pictures at every step.
As a negative I think this book is overpriced but I purchased it because choices are few.
So overall, if the price doesn't put you off, I think this book is the best for Mountain Lion Server. Endorsed by Apple, which doesn't hurt either.
Whatever, if you're working with apple servers then get these books. They are the best resource (in addition to the apple forums) you're going to find. I run bunch of servers and always have this book on my desk.
