Thanks for that,
We just bought a Mac Mini server (so no App Store purchase) and now need to download Server App to a laptop for remote management.
How do I do that?
From where I'm sitting, it looks like we have to buy OS X server again - but this time from the App store so we can install it?
Sorry, just a bit confused.
I don't blame you for feeling confused !
I have read you can use server.app to remotely manage osx server
If you open it but do not proceed with configuration
From manage menu choose connect to server and enter the ip or fqdn of the server
I haven't tried it myself
How you go about that with a Mac mini server, I don't know
I don't know if copying server.app from the mac mini to another machine running 10.8 would work
You could give apple a call, you should be entitled to free support from apple
From memory it's a month of free support from the date of your first phone call
VNC, screen share, ARD are other options
