10.5: Manage users and groups using a GUI tool
Authored by: kyngchaos on Nov 09, '07 08:38:30AM

A bit of a problem though - as soon as we got our Leopard Server maintenance upgrade, I installed the admin tools on my Leopard MacBook, thinking the tools must match the client (it was that way with Panther Server and a Tiger client). But the Leopard admin tools will not administer a Tiger Server! We are not upgrading our Tiger server to Leopard, yet.

And the Tiger admin tools do not work for this hint - eDSRecordTypeDisabled error, and nothing shows up in the user or group lists.

Extracting the 10.5 Workgroup Admin app from the installer with Pacifist seems to work, but there may be other problems since some server stuff is installed in the system that may be incompatible between Tiger and Leopard.

10.5: Manage users and groups using a GUI tool

Extracting it with Pacifist should work just fine (it did for me). Workgroup Manager doesn't require anything but the app itself.

10.5: Manage users and groups using a GUI tool

I just copied 10.4 Server Admin and Workgroup Manager Tools from a 10.4 installation in to a folder under /Applications/Server/10.4/ on a Leopard system and use them to manage Tiger servers... maybe a hint in itself?
