Much easier: Just use OS X Server disc 2
Authored by: ClassicUser on Feb 02, '05 08:02:18PM

As indicated elsewhere here:

The OS X Client version has nothing to do with the OS X Server version. So, just take the (client) software which is already on your Mac, and add the Server components from the separate metapackage on the OS X Server disc 2 (named "MacOSXServerInstall.mpkg", I believe) - and update from there, of course. The base OS will include all the custom pieces needed to ensure compatibility with your hardware, and then the Server components operate on top of that, providing specific functions for server needs.

Oh, and a "combo" update takes any major release and updates it to the current version. So, the 10.3.7 Server Update could be used to update from 10.3.2 (or any version of 10.3.x) directly to 10.3.7; no need for any intermediate steps.

Seriously people--the second disc is all you need. This hint was a waste of all our time. Yes, it will claim that you are running 10.3.0, but you really aren't. You are running OS X 10.3.7 with OS X Server 10.3.0. Yes, it's weird, but it's fine.

Yes everyone, believe it! You can verify it in the OS X Server documentation--if you already have a 10.3 client version installed, just install the server meta package from Disc 2, then run Software Update.
