For the Apple Service Providers we need to run Apple Service Toolkit from a server. Has anyone gottten AST to work on a Lion Server? We have 3 locations and have all tried and have gotten different out comes but none have worked. We have chatted with Apple Service with no help.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.1)

    I have it installed on a Lion server machine and the only way I have been able to get the client machines to see it was to plug both the server machine and the client into the same switch. Netbooting across subnets seems almost impossible.


    I am also waiting to hear back from the AST support people because now, when I netboot a client machine to the gateway, it says "There is a problem with the Gateway Manager." When I log into the server and open Gateway Manager, it just sits there forever saying "Looking for gateway controller."


    Currently I'm running AST 1.0.9 and I understand that version 1.1.1 is actually the latest, but I cannot find it ANYWHERE on Apple's site nor in GSX. In fact, since they switched over to the new GSX domain, the ONLY thing I can find related to AST is a small article describing how it works. No downloads, no links, no nothing.


    Any idea where to find the latest version? I can't even find a link to it with a simple Google search. The AST support guy said to search within GSX, which found nothing but the article I mentioned.
