macOS Server Will Lose Many Services this Spring: Here Are Alternatives

Last summer, the Rocket Yard ran a 7-part series on macOS Server and how it could be used to provide a variety of services — calendar, contacts, mail, messages and so on — to small businesses or individuals. Little did we know at the time that Apple was preparing to remove the majority of those services. A recent support document from Apple notes that “macOS Server is changing to focus more on management of computers, devices, and storage on your network. As a result, some changes are coming in how Server works. A number of services will be deprecated, and will be hidden on new installations of an update to macOS Server coming in spring 2018.”

The document goes on to say that if you’ve already configured one of the services, you’ll still be able to use it after the spring 2018 macOS Server update. However, it goes on to say that “These deprecated services will be removed in a future release of macOS Server, so those depending on them should consider alternatives, including hosted services.

Looking at the services that are disappearing, it’s obvious that macOS Server will no longer provide the majority of services that most administrators use it for. These services are the “meat” of macOS Server, and they’ll be gone in a future release:

  • Calendar
  • Contacts
  • DHCP
  • DNS
  • Mail
  • Messages
  • NetInstall
  • VPN
  • Websites
  • Wiki

Why Is Apple Doing This?
That’s a good question! Sadly, there’s no real answer available from the company. It’s known that in many cases, the services used by Apple were “officially-supported” open source projects, and the versions found in macOS Server often lagged badly behind the open source versions. As a result, many administrators would actually replace the old Apple versions with newer open source ones.

One other reason could be the size of the market for macOS Server. Keeping the app up-to-date and supported takes significant resources, and the number of actual users of macOS Server is probably quite small. Add to this the fact that Apple doesn’t really sell server-specific hardware anymore, and it’s rather obvious that they want out of the business. The updated Mac Pro still has no firm delivery date, and the Mac mini — which has been the server hardware of choice for many small businesses — has been ignored for years.

So What Will macOS Server Actually Do In The Future?
The comment that macOS Server is “changing to focus more on management of computers, devices, and storage on your network” seems to indicate that the company realizes that there are many hosted services that actually do a better job than macOS Server — we even alluded to that in Part 7 of the 2017 macOS Server series, when we discussed the “All-Cloud Solution.”

It could be that Apple is thinking of macOS Server becoming more like the powerful JAMF services that are used by enterprise and small businesses alike to keep track of computers and mobile devices. JAMF doesn’t provide the standard services like those in the list above, so if Apple is considering changing macOS Server to a JAMF-like server, the company will be going against a well-established and respected competitor.

What Are The Alternatives?
In the support document, Apple provides three alternatives for each service that will be deprecated. Most of those services are open source and in many cases are what savvy macOS Server admins have been using anyway. For those who are just thinking about setting up their own servers, however, the thought of downloading, configuring, and maintaining a grocery list of open source apps could be daunting.

Perhaps Apple is considering expanding the iCloud services — Mail, Contacts, Calendar, iCloud Drive, Notes, Reminders, iWork and so on — to workgroups and enterprises, with administrative tools that would make it possible for a company or workgroup to set up individual users and groups, keep track of devices through Find iPhone, and even use a custom domain name. This is pure conjecture, but it would be a logical step for Apple. When would this happen? Probably not until 2019 at the earliest if Apple is still considering future releases of macOS Server.

Our “All-Cloud Solution” from last year’s series provides some possibilities for organizations that are either thinking of setting up a “server” or that will need to move from macOS Server in the near future. That solution includes moving small workgroups to iCloud or larger organizations to Google’s G Suite, using alternative web hosting services like Squarespace, Wix, and Weebly, and taking advantage of collaboration tools like Dropbox and Slack.

My Company has a macOS Server. What Should I Do Now?
For the time being, you’re OK and things will run as they have in the past. Even when the Spring 2018 macOS Server update arrives, it appears that your services will continue running for a time. However, the writing is on the wall and it’s obvious that Apple wants you to consider alternatives to macOS Server. Now’s the time to start looking at those alternatives and developing a plan to move your organization off of macOS Server. It’s better to consider making a change while there’s still time instead of waiting until the services disappear from macOS Server.

Those who were considering adopting macOS Server would be wise to consider another solution before expending the time and resources to building and configuring a server, as you may find that the services you wished to provide are hidden from view in the next version of macOS Server.

macOS Server, formerly Mac OS X Server and OS X Server, is a series of Unix-like server operating systems developed by Apple Inc., based on macOS and later add-on software packages for the latter. macOS Server adds server functionality and system administration tools to macOS and provides tools to manage both macOS-based computers and iOS-based devices.

Versions of Mac OS X Server prior to version 10.7 “Lion” were sold as complete, standalone server operating systems;[4] starting with Mac OS X 10.7 “Lion,” Mac OS X Server (and its successors OS X Server and macOS Server) have been offered as add-on software packages, sold through the Mac App Store, that are installed on top of a corresponding macOS installation.[3][5]

macOS Server provides network services such as a mail transfer agent, AFP and SMB servers, an LDAP server, and a domain name server, as well as server applications including a Web server, database, and calendar server.

Overview[edit]

Mac OS X Server was provided as the operating system for Xserve computers, rack mountedserver computers designed by Apple. Also, it was optionally pre-installed on the Mac Mini and Mac Pro and was sold separately for use on any Macintosh computer meeting its minimum requirements.

macOS Server versions prior to Lion are based on an open source foundation called Darwin and use open industry standards and protocols.

Versions[edit]

Box artwork for Mac OS X Server versions 10.1–10.6

Mac OS X Server 1.0 (Rhapsody)[edit]

Main article: Mac OS X Server 1.0

The first version of Mac OS X was Mac OS X Server 1.0. Mac OS X Server 1.0 was based on Rhapsody, a hybrid of OPENSTEP from NeXT Computer and Mac OS 8.5.1. The GUI looked like a mixture of Mac OS 8's Platinum appearance with OPENSTEP's NeXT-based interface. It included a runtime layer called Blue Box for running legacy Mac OS-based applications within a separate window. There was discussion of implementing a 'transparent blue box' which would intermix Mac OS applications with those written for Rhapsody's Yellow Box environment, but this would not happen until Mac OS X's Classic environment. Apple File Services, Macintosh Manager, QuickTime Streaming Server, WebObjects, and NetBoot were included with Mac OS X Server 1.0. It could not use FireWire devices. The last release is Mac OS X Server 1.2v3.

Mac OS X Server 10.0 (Cheetah)[edit]

Released: May 21, 2001

Mac OS X Server 10.0 included the new Aqua user interface, Apache, PHP, MySQL, Tomcat, WebDAV support, Macintosh Manager, and NetBoot.

Mac OS X Server 10.1 (Puma)[edit]

Released: September 25, 2001

Mac OS X Server 10.1 featured improved performance, increased system stability, and decreased file transfer times compared to Mac OS X Server 10.0. Support was added for RAID 0 and RAID 1 storage configurations, and Mac OS 9.2.1 in NetBoot.[6]

Mac OS X Server 10.2 (Jaguar)[edit]

Released: August 23, 2002

The 10.2 Mac OS X Server release includes updated Open Directory user and file management, which with this release is based on LDAP, beginning the deprecation of the NeXT-originated NetInfo architecture. The new Workgroup Manager interface improved configuration significantly. The release also saw major updates to NetBoot and NetInstall. Many common network services are provided such as NTP, SNMP, web server (Apache), mail server (Postfix and Cyrus), LDAP (OpenLDAP), AFP, and print server. The inclusion of Samba version 3 allows tight integration with Windows clients and servers. MySQL v4.0.16 and PHP v4.3.7 are also included.

Mac OS X Server 10.3 (Panther)[edit]

Released: October 24, 2003

The 10.3 Mac OS X Server release includes updated Open Directory user and file management, which with this release is based on LDAP, beginning the deprecation of the NeXT-originated NetInfo architecture. The new Workgroup Manager interface improved configuration significantly. Many common network services are provided such as NTP, SNMP, web server (Apache), mail server (Postfix and Cyrus), LDAP (OpenLDAP), AFP, and print server. The inclusion of Samba version 3 allows tight integration with Windows clients and servers. MySQL v4.0.16 and PHP v4.3.7 are also included.[citation needed]

Mac OS X Server 10.4 (Tiger)[edit]

Released: April 29, 2005

The 10.4 release adds 64-bit application support, Access Control Lists, Xgrid, link aggregation, e-mail spam filtering (SpamAssassin), virus detection (ClamAV), Gateway Setup Assistant, and servers for Software Update, iChat Server using XMPP,[7] Boot Camp Assistant, Dashboard, and weblogs.

On August 10, 2006, Apple announced the first Universal Binary release of Mac OS X Server, version 10.4.7, supporting both PowerPC and Intel processors. At the same time Apple announced the release of the Intel-based Mac Pro and Xserve systems.

Mac OS X Server 10.5 (Leopard Server)[edit]

The Mac OS X Leopard Server running Server Admin on Desktop

Released: October 26, 2007. Leopard Server sold for $999 for an unlimited-client license.[8] Mac OS X Server version 10.5.x ‘Leopard’ was the last major version of Mac OS X Server to support PowerPC-based servers and workstations such as the Apple Xserve G5 and Power Mac G5.

Released: August 28, 2009

Snow Leopard Server sold for $499 and included unlimited client licenses.[8]

New Features:

  • Full 64-bit operating system. On appropriate systems with 4 GB of RAM or more, Snow Leopard Server uses a 64-bit kernel to address up to a theoretical 16 TB of RAM.[11]
  • iCal Server 2 with improved CalDAV support, a new web calendaring application, push notifications and the ability to send email invitations to non-iCal users.
  • Address Book Server provides a central location for users to store and access personal contacts across multiple Macs and synchronized iPhones. Based on the CardDAV protocol standard.
  • Wiki Server 2, with server side Quick Look and the ability to view wiki content on iPhone.
  • A new Mail server engine that supports push email so users receive immediate access to new messages. However, Apple's implementation of push email is not supported for Apple's iPhone.
  • Podcast Producer 2 with dual-source video support. Also includes a new Podcast Composer application to automate the production process, making it simple to create podcasts with a customized, consistent look and feel. Podcast Composer creates a workflow to add titles, transitions and effects, save to a desired format and share to wikis, blogs, iTunes, iTunes U, Final Cut Server or Podcast Library.
  • Mobile Access Server enables iPhone and Mac users to access secured network services, including corporate websites, online business applications, email, calendars and contacts. Without requiring additional software, Mobile Access Server acts as a reverse proxy server and provides SSL encryption and authentication between the user's iPhone or Mac and a private network.

Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion Server)[edit]

Released: July 20, 2011

In releasing the developer preview of Mac OS X Lion in February 2011, Apple indicated that beginning with Lion, Mac OS X Server would be bundled with the operating system and would not be marketed as a separate product.[12] However, a few months later, the company said it would instead sell the server components as a US$49.99 add-on to Lion, distributed through the Mac App Store (as well as Lion itself).[13] The combined cost of an upgrade to Lion and the purchase of the OS X Server add-on, which costs approximately US$50,[8] was nonetheless significantly lower than the retail cost of Snow Leopard Server (US$499).

Lion Server came with unlimited client licenses as did Snow Leopard Server.

Lion Server includes new versions of iCal Server, Wiki Server, and Mail Server.[14] More significantly, Lion Server can be used for iOS mobile device management.

Starting with Apple Mac OS X Server Version 10.7 “Lion,” PostgreSQL replaces MySQL as the database provided with Mac OS X Server, coinciding with Oracle Corporation’s acquisition of Sun Microsystems and Oracle’s subsequent attempts to tighten MySQL’s licensing restrictions and to exert influence on MySQL’s previously open and independent development model.[15]
