On my iMac, I am running the installation of OS X that it shipped with + updates up to 10.6.8.  I know there are server admin tools available on the Apple support website, that do stuff like manage groups.  I am looking for a GUI to look at ALL the users, groups, permissions, etc. (including hidden ones like _www for apache) on my system, without having to dig through config files in /etc and/or use the dscl command line utility.


The referenced article says I can find the 10.6 tools on Apple support downloads:

Mac OS X Server v10.6

To administer Mac OS X Server v10.6, use the Server Admin Tools 10.6 on Mac OS X v10.6. You should match the version numbers of the server, tools, and admin workstation as closely as possible; for example, use Server Admin Tools version 10.6.8 on Mac OS X v10.6.8 to administer Mac OS X Server v10.6.8.

My questions are:


1.  Where are the 10.6 tools on the apple support website?  A search turns up versions for everything BUT 10.6.

2.  Will the 10.6 tools work on 10.6.8 that is not a server edition of Mac OS?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
