On Leopard,Part 4

Author: q | Filed under: Leopard, Mac, SBS

OK, the first of the Leopard How-To”s is now posted: Connecting a Macintosh running Mac OS 10.5 to an SBS 2003 Server is now online. There are some key differences between this version of the Mac OS and previous versions, but nothing really earth-shattering. In fact, it”s quite a bit easier to get the Mac connected. In fact, if it weren”t for SMB signing, it would really be a piece of cake. Oh well.

I”ve run into a couple of other interesting hiccups related to Leopard installation, and I”ll be posting about those as well when I get more concrete information about the issues.

In the meantime, as I did when Vista came out, I”m recommending that people hold off from installing Leopard on their exsting systems, especially on a business-critical machine. Give the bleeding edge folks a little time to ferret out some of the issues that didn”t come up in beta testing and get fixes or workarounds before trying to install. I”m probably going to stick with my recommendation that a clean install is a good install for Leopard as well. More on that as information becomes available.
