Install The Server 5.2 App On MacOS Sierra ##HOT##

No, a few years ago mac stopped making the server its own OS. Instead they charged $19.99 for an app that you can run on any mac. Version 4 was able to upgrade and pull the settings from old full blown server OS but version 5.2 cant. I was looking for version 4 of the server app, but I needed this thing online so I just blew away the /Library/Server folder so I could get rid of the error message that pops up, and then just reinstalled the new 5.2 app from scratch and rebuilt the settings...more work involved, but it is back up now.

Install The Server 5.2 App On macOS Sierra


I did find one work around to get server to install. After I had updated to 10.11 could not go to 10.12 yet have other unsupported software. Anyways after update server app would not update until I deleted it and reinstalled from app store.

I have a mid 2012 MBP OS X 10.12.3, trying to install server 5.2, first install on this machine and repeatedly get: "This version of Server does not support upgrading the Server data on this volume. To upgrade your Server data, you will need to install an older version of Server and OS X."

How do I upgrade to macOS Server from a server running OS X 10.9.5 and OS X Server 3.2.2? I would assume that I simply upgrade the OS X to macOS, then buy/download/install the macOS Server app from App Store. Of course, I will have a full backup of server before taking these steps.

macOS Sierra supports macOS Server version 5.2. To upgrade your Server data you will first need to install OS X 10.10 or 10.11 and OS X Server version 4 or 5. Installing macOS Sierra on this volume will disable the current server functionality. Are you sure you want to continue the installation?

According to the error message, it seems you will first need to install "OS X 10.10 or 10.11 and OS X Server version 4 or 5" on your server. Then try upgrading again. If you continue right now, your current server will be disabled, and you will have to try to restore your server.

Once 5.0.15 was installed in Yosemite, I ran it to update the services and checked that all the settings for Users, File Sharing, DNS and other services are there. I then updated to El Capitan (10.11.6), upgraded to version 5.1.7 and ran it to update the services again. I don't plan to update this server to Sierra yet, since the office has some older Macs that won't run Sierra, so all the Macs will use El Capitan for now.

Mac OS X Server was provided as the operating system for Xserve computers, rack mounted server 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.

The server, named ".mw-parser-output .monospacedfont-family:monospace,monospacecaldavd", is a daemon background service. It has been ported to non-Apple computer platforms. It is currently possible to install it on FreeBSD and several flavours of Linux. The server is written in the Python programming language with the Twisted framework, and uses an SQL database for storage of calendar data.

After installing, and then downloading again, I am greeted with the upgrade warning. I have only installed the 10.6 version of the server in an environment for production, nothing is newer.

Contact your license administrator for help in getting a client license file. Once you have a license file, launch Sequencher and, in the Sequencher License Manager dialog, select Activate Sequencher and then Install License, browse to the file, select it, and click on the Install button. Then, select Start Sequencher to use Sequencher right away or Quit. If the license is valid, and your License Server is up and running, Sequencher will launch. For instructions on installing server licenses, see the Installation Instructions for either Sequencher RLM Server or Sequencher KeyServer at:

Mac OS X 10.2 "Jaguar": For the first time, Mac OS X comes in two flavours, regular and Server editions. Jaguar 10.2 Server costs more, and uses a serial-number, but with general-user apps replaced with administrator-level server toys, it is a single CD of 635MB. The regular, or 'Client' OS installer now comes on two CDs but most of the second is fonts & printer drivers that you can choose not to install. There's a third CD in the retail package, "Apple Developer Tools" which has another 338MB of stuff on it. Without the Dev Tools, Jaguar Retail is 648 MB + 341 MB = 989 MB. 350c69d7ab
