I work for a school district and we use OS X server strictly for the the ability to manage our OS X clients. Other than Workgroup Manager and NetBoot, we do not use any other features of OS X Server. I'm in the process of migrating all of the clients over to 10.5, and I am debating whether or not we need to upgrade to 10.5 server just yet. Seeing as the 10.5 version of WGM will connect to a 10.4.11 server and allow you to manage 10.5 clients, would there be any added WGM features and/or benefits by upgrading our servers to 10.5?

Thanks in advance for any responses!

    If you experience any abnormalities you may want to upgrade the server to match the client. In testing we found that OS X 10.5.3 and higher client software would kill the TCP stack on the 10.3.9 server.

    However, 10.3.9 clients interact with the 10.5.5 server install without issues.

    Just something to look for.
