Reference 4.2. Using the Next Steps Drawer
The Next Steps drawer is at the bottom of the Server app window, and is a great introduction to the Server app. Once you are more familiar with the Server app, you can click the Next Steps button to close the Next Steps drawer. You can always click the Next Steps button to open the drawer again.
The five sections in the Next Steps drawer are pretty self-explanatory:
You should have already configured your network interfaces the way you want, but the Configure Network pane gives you a quick view of your current network configuration, as well as a shortcut to your server’s Network pane in the Server app.
Lessons 8 and 10 delve into managing local users, as well managing local network users. The Add Users pane offers some advice and a shortcut to the Server app’s Users pane.
You will learn about using SSL certificates in the next lesson. One blue link opens Server Help, and the second is a shortcut to the Settings pane where you can configure SSL certificates.
This pane lists any currently running services. The Server app sidebar displays a green status indicator next to any service that’s running.
You will learn more about managing Macs and iOS devices in Lesson 11, “Configuring OS X Server to Provide Device Management,” and in Lesson 12, “Managing with Profile Manager.”
