Upgrade from OS X Server 10.6.8 to OS X Server 10.8.2 checklist
Posted by UCS IT Support 4 on 29 January 2013 09:48 AM
- Backup old 10.6 server using TM
- Reformat & install a clean 10.8, apply all updates 10.8.2 etc.
- install Server.app
- Verify DNS is good.
At this point, you have a nice clean install.
Do a Clean TM backup, so if anything goes bad, you can easily get back to this point.
- Setup OD
- migrate users (in most small biz environments, I just do an export of users/groups and deal with resetting pws)
(a little extra work, but can be cleaner in the end)
- Setup sharepoints, permissions
