Apple Computer late Thursday
released an update for the company’s server operating system, bringing the current version to 10.4.1. The update addresses several issues found in Tiger Server since its release 20 days ago.
Among the changes in Mac OS X Tiger Server 10.4.1, Apple fixed a problem with the Software Update Server where the service may not automatically download and host mirrored updates. A bug was also fixed in the Apple File Server where it may stop unexpectedly when used simultaneously with SMB and CIFS.
Open Directory received several fixes in this update including addressing an issue in which users may not be able to add Password Hints to an Access Control List. A problem with static LDAP binding entries being lost when bound to a DNS entry which resolves to many IP addresses and startup issues which may prevent computers from fully starting up when bound via Active Directory and hosting multiple services, were addressed in the update.
Mail migration issues in which the mail databases may be located on a different partition separate from where the 10.4.1 install resides, were also fixed.
Other changes including the Disk Imaging utility and a fix for Weblogs among other changes are also included in the 38MB update. Mac OS X Tiger Server 10.4.1 is available via the Software Update utility or from Apple’s Web site.
