    The Series does a good job of showing step by step by step installation & configuration of an intrAnet -

    Where it falls VERY short, is what to do or check if your replication does not go as smooth – or if you are trying to set up a server to offer services beyond a local LAN.

    Absolutely NOTHING is covered in the way of troubleshooting or what to do if things go wrong-

    So if you want to WATCH a smooth server installation this would be a good choice for you – if you are trying to install your own or troubleshoot an installation/configuration then it will be of no help at all.

    I have very mixed feelings about Lynda and its methods. I think the fact that they limit access to example and exercise material to those who pay a big (auto-renewing) annual fee is reprehensible (yes sir, the car is $500, but the keys to it are another $20,000 a year). Buying the video on disk is one way around that dilemma (sort of). I would say the videos do a fair job of covering the topic, although they need updating as some of the materials covered have changed substantially. Also the lack of discussion of things that can go wrong, common problems, errors, and complications, makes this title less useful than it ought to be. So, while I found it helpful as far as it went, it also left me wanting more than was offered. If you are setting Leopard Server up for the first time, this is probably a good purchase, but it can leave you stranded, so be prepared.

    The training DVD helped me to expedite the setup of two new Leopard servers in my company. Study and setup took about two days (with the usual interruptions).

    I have pre-ordered “Mac OS X Leopard Server Bible” by the same author in the hope that it will deal with some of the issues that the previous reviewer had.
