If you have dual hard drives, I strongly recommend RAID 1 (Mirroring) If you follow these instructions, OS X Server, especially Open Directory will run well: Reinstall OS X BEFORE you install OS X Server, be sure to do the following: Change the name of your Startup Volume NOW ...

I had the same problem initially too. But for many months now, though, Open Directory has been working as expected and serves our many users' credentials reliably. It was only after the following that Open Directory settled down: I was 100% sure that the OS X Server's DNS and reverse DNS was consistent, as viewed from within and without our network, and ...

I was successful in getting the 3440x1440 resolution back in Yosemite by following the instructions from a discussion on Apple's discussion page.

One can be the daily OS, the other 1) as extra storage ...

Wirelessly I think you'd have to use something like VNC, which is built-in to the Mac OS. Maybe see https://www.realvnc.com/products/ which I've had some success with. Alternatively, there's Apple Remote Access, but that is more for a corporate environment & is reflected in the price.

I had been using this configuration for years without problem.

If you're using a Windows keyboard, the Windows key is usually synonymous with option. Hold just the Windows key as the system boots and you'll get the... Options (get it?).
