We've got 5 desktop devices in our organization which im currently managing using a remote connection client or physically by sitting at each machine.
Each change i make such as an update / settings change has to be made one by one across all machines.
I was reading up online and got pointed towards an osx server - http://www.apple.com/osx/server/ - which looks like the sort of thing i need.
The feature i really liked the look of is the Profile Manager, which looks like it would let me manage the config and updates of machines.
The other features we dont really need right now for instance, we currently use Dropbox for file sharing and i think this will continue as this has a mobile app (accessible when off site using 3g) which we find really useful.
If i just want to use the Profile Manager, can i setup the server on my day to day machine (2012 MBP - 10.9.2) whilst still be able to use it as before, or do i need to get a dedicated machine to run the server on ? Or is there another option for config and one to many updates on osx ?
