Installation Tips - preliminary

To install server on a machine that requires a newer version of System 6 than 6.0.3 (e.g IIci on 6.0.4):

  1. Run Installer on AppleShare Server disk.
  2. Choose to install AppleShare File Server and EtherTalk (if desired/required)
  3. Copy "AppleShare Admin" on AppleShare Administration disk to the System Folder of the volume AppleShare File Server was installed on.
  4. Launch AppleShare Admin application to initialize and configure the server.
  5. AppleShare File Server application will start automatically after the Macintosh is rebooted.
    NOTE: Finder access will be LOCKED out!

To configure the server Macintosh as a nondedicated machine - not mentioned in the manual and is certainly an unsupported configuration

  1. Boot the server Macintosh from floppy or another SCSI ID using cmd-opt-shift-delete-ID# at startup
  2. Select the server boot volume in the Finder and execute the Set Startup command.
  3. Set Finder is the startup application.
  4. Rename the boot volume's "Server Folder" to "System Folder" if desired.
  5. Finder will launch for all subsequent boots instead of AppleShare File Server.
  6. To manually start the server, launch the "AShare File Srv" application in the Server/System Folder. The Mac will have to be shut down/restarted with the reset switch to get back into the Finder. AppleShare File Server does not offer any form of quit option.
