5.0 out of 5 stars A great companion to the software Nov. 1 2011
By Jim Dixon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book contains several hundred pages of step-by-step instructions that show you how to do all kinds of things, including setting up an email server, using Lion Server to connect to Active Directory, and managing clients. It also explains concepts that beginners might not know about, such as the types of network directory servers you can create and access control lists for file sharing. For the reviewer who said there's nothing about DNS in the book, check out the index, where you'll find a whole column of listings that are in the book.)

Some of Lion Server's features are not easy to find -- such as using different SSL settings for different services. This book tells you where everything is in a step-by-step manner. The screen shots are very helpful as well.

A lot of the information in Lion Server for Dummies is nowhere to be seen at Apple's web site, and Lion Server's Help system is pretty sparse. I found a PDF at Apple's web site that doesn't mention some of the things you can do with Lion Server, let alone how to set it up. I found this book to be a great help in figuring out Lion Server. If you have Lion Server, you should have this book.

MacOS X Lion Server answered a number of questions about setting up an in-house mail server and that alone was worth the price.

2.0 out of 5 stars Book does NOT explain DNS or SSL very well at all... I've had a nightmare with setup... Jan. 1 2012
By Daniel A Wollert - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Book is written for IT people. I'm pretty savvy with Macs and setups and whatnot... This book still lost me with its cryptic discussion of SSL and DNS... Basically, I tried to follow step by step with absolutely no luck. I'm gonna wait for the Missing Manual Series!

1.0 out of 5 stars Not suited for Dummies Feb. 1 2012
By Wilfried Voss - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is written in the lively style of the "Dummies" series of books, but somebody should explain to the author, John Rizzo, the concept of "...for Dummies." In my humble opinion, you can't explain an automobile by going into the details of an electronic ignition versus a carburetor. But then, ironically, many of the chapters explain what you can do, however, without elaborating on how to get there. To name only one example, there is absolutely no explanation on how to set up a client and test the communication with the server. My point is, there is no hands-on approach, which is what we "dummies" need. Topics like "Using inherited and explicit ACEs together" may be necessary for a complete documentation, but it carries the potential of confusing (and tremendously bore) the server novice.

Most annoying are the references to the previous version OS-X Snow Leopard Server, especially the features that have not made it into Lion. Sorry, but who cares? My point is, everybody who dealt with Snow Leopard Server already knows the basics and cannot be considered a "dummy." The same is true for users who utilize server hardware beyond the Mac mini. You won't let a "dummy" handle such serious equipment like a Mac Pro which is worth several thousands of dollars. My point is, a quick reference to the server hardware is appreciated, but leave the details for the professionals.

My idea of "Mac OS-X Lion Server for Dummies" is a basic and comprehensive description of the most needed services, and this is where the book fails miserably. These services are primarily running a website and file sharing, which makes about 90% of what "dummies" need. Yes, Lion Server can do a lot more, and there are a myriad of technical aspects when it comes to setting up a server, but let's get there when we are familiar with the basics.

Whenever I approach a new technology, I tend to buy a "Dummy" edition for a quick startup, but I also order the "professional" version to research the details when needed. In his particular case, I regret to have bought the "Dummy" version. Sorry, no more than one star.

3.0 out of 5 stars Basic overview, not in for troubleshooting Jan. 1 2012
By Craig - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This gives a good tour of the abilities of Lion server, but doesn't go in to depth in areas where things go wrong. More than half the book is all about planning the server deployment, which is all to the good, but not to specific to Lion.
