I've recently purchased a surplus stock of brand new 2009 Xserve's and i have been experimenting on how i would integrate them into my existing business infrastructure and it really dissapointed me to see that Lion and Mountain Lion both do not support any of the extra hardware on this server. No ILO, no activiy lights, no management at all.


I can get past the more limited options available in the, but remvoing support for the actual hardware in the machine is appauling. I will not be upgrading from snow leopard server, i may even just install ESX 5.1 and run windows / linux servers as my new main servers...


I understand apple has become a consumer electronics company, but these consumers have jobs and thier devices get put into corporate networks daily. It would be nice to be able to better support those devices on the corprate network...



If anything the iphone / ipad should bring upon a higher need for os x servers...

Xserve, OS X Server
