Using Server Preferences

With Server Preferences, you can check the status of services and change essential
settings. You can use Server Preferences to manage various aspects of Snow Leopard
Server, such as who can use its services, how its services are configured, or what its
status is.

Find the setting you
need without knowing
its exact location

To manage a server with Server Preferences:


Open Server Preferences.

Server Preferences is located in /Applications/Server/.


If Server Preferences asks you for Server, User Name, and Password, enter the server’s

DNS name or IP address, the name of an administrator user account on the server,
and the password for the administrator account.

The account you created when you set up the server is an administrator account.
