Mac OS X Server 10.6 Snow Leopard Server is no longer for sale at the Apple Store website. Mac OS X Server software licenses were sold as a separate full operating system from Apple until 10.7 Lion, though few realized that the client versions of Mac OS X could always be converted into the Server version product of the Mac OS X System Software (except for Rhapsody) simply by purchasing a license and downloading and installing the OS X Server pkg over the client software, even before the Mac App Store existed, just as it is now the only way to get OS X Server for Lion and subsequent versions of OS X Server.
If I purchase a license for and copy of OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard from the Apple Store, and install this on a new Mac Mini, and I update the System to 10.6.8, can I then, through the Mac App Store, purchase a license for and a download a copy of the pkg installer for Mac OS X Server 10.6 Snow Leopard Server from the Mac App Store (which first appears in 10.6.7)?
Though there may not be the option through the Apple Store web site, in purchasing new hardware today from Apple, if you request it, Apple will sell you a license for and a copy of Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard and install it for you on the hardware you purchased. Will they sell a license for Mac OS X Server 10.6 Snow Leopard Server with it and install it for you, if you request it?
While I am aware that you can still download and install Server Admin Tools 10.6.8, even on the client versions of Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard, currently, my only Intel Mac is running a highly customized version of Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard, and I am unable to check for myself (or I would) if the Mac OS X 10.6 Server Snow Leopard Server package is available for sale and download or not through the Mac App Store. Can a kind and very shrewd soul still running Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard fire up their Mac App Store for me and see if they can even get to the OS X Server software package for sale on the Mac App Store, and at least comment if not answer, regarding whether they believe or know they can actually purchase, download and install it, converting their Snow Leopard System Software into a full retail version of Mac OS X Server 10.6 Snow Leopard Server? Thank you so very very much!
