Currently Being ModeratedJun 27, 2006 4:36 PM (in response to hylas)Hi there.
10.0 is asking for pain, serious pain. I got mail running under 10.0.<something> ages ago, and wouldn't touch it again unless paid to
This download link here seems to work fine (tested it just now)
Which took me about 5 seconds to find, by searching at
for 10.0 server
and choosing "restrict to downloads"
Good luck !

It's a bit confusing, reread my initial post it's a real mess upgrading to 10.1 too.
Thanks for trying though,

Currently Being ModeratedJul 2, 2006 7:31 PM (in response to hylas)If Apple won't help you then you seem to be out of luck.
It should of course be available as a download.
Why you'd want to do anything with it is beyond me, all components that you'd be wanting to upgrade manually (BIND, DHCP, DNS, amavisd, spamassassin, clamav, Postfix or for that matter Exim, both will do you far better than sendmail) you could easily do under 10.1 (assuming current versions would still compile correctly) or 10.2 Mac OS X client.
I'm not sure what 10.0.x server offers you that you'd need.
And I do mean that honestly.
My own archives only go back as far as 10.1.x server, fwiw
Currently Being ModeratedJul 18, 2006 7:40 PM (in response to hylas)Yes, you read right.
Mac OS X Server 10.0.4, ...that's *Server".
One last gasp, as, alas the "Apple Guy™" tried valiantly and, well, I'm sure he was dealt with swiftly once the Apple Software Police got wind of this. Those export notices are NOT toys.
I do hope it was quick and painless ...silenced, and sooo young.
A four out of 5 Apples for you who looked in your archives for this rare vintage Server (<--remember) software.
(158 HITS as of this final entry)
Did it ever reeaaaly exist, or was it just that old Jedi trick like in OS X 10.1?

I've been warned several times about this particular version of the OS, being that it was an early release, they tell me it takes no prisoners, whispers of "it eats it's young". I've put this down to crazed infiltrators from the Dark Side™ trying to throw me off the scent.
I believe a rumour I heard, that Apple actually, accidently released this update into the wild, by the way of a young, newly hired intern, (they only let them sweep up all the 1s and 0s that have fallen to the floor during the day when crazed assembly programmers churn out patches really late at night) well, this poor chap happened across a patch, just completed, who's programmer had just left for his quadruple expresso break, ...our hapless intern, being helpful and mesmerized by the blue pulsating SAVE button ... hit ENTER on the keyboard.
What he didn't know is that it was for internal use only AND it had the invisible bit set.
And that's the story of how "10.0.4ServerUpdate.dmg.bin" got lost.
BUT ...if your updating late at night and go to just under the blue Apple at the left in 10.0.3 Server (<--remember) and hit Software Update it appears as if by magic, (or magic number) updates your Server and vanishes, leaving only the telltale receipt.
All apologies to the widows of HST and CampFire Girls everywhere.
I bid you much adou.

I'm marking this as solved.
The "Apple Guy™" tried valiantly. He also informed me Apple pulled this and is not distributing this patch (Mac OS X Server 10.0.4 Update) any longer. (export restrictions?)
Personally, after looking 8 months for this integral final patch for a SERVER someone took pity and provided me this update from their archives.
To them I say much thanks and I say to you keep your patches and archive them.
