I read all these peoples reviews about having to pay again when they update their OS but the new update just came out so I figure wth I’ll try it. What a mistake. I’m not here complaning about the price. The problem is the system itself. We can’t print anymore. The printer is on the network but not visible to the computers. My iCloud…gone. Have to enter the conputer and icloud password 8 times before it will run now. Now none of the computers in our office can access the network. I’ve wasted 6 hours on this. Time is money and if you take anything away from this review make it this….save your time. Life is too short to dick around with this stupid app.

Pretty much worthless now except for Network user accounts

Server app has for me at least, become increasingly useless.

It still is the easiest way to manage network user accounts.

However, in High Sierra both Caching Control and File Sharing have been moved out of the Server App. It was just easier to manage everything in one place. Even if there’s no need.

Why not leave well enough alone?

OS X, despite the light node with the iMac Pro continues it’s trend away from an Operating System towards a giant iPad.

Well as of 5.6.1 there really is no point in using macOS Server.

Apple has effectively lobotomized it and provided links to ‘other’ options.

If there were any question wether Apple is enterprise friendly or not, update 5.6.1 answers provides a clear answer to that.
