Archived - About the Mac OS X Server v10.6.1 Update

This software updates Mac OS X Server v10.6 to v10.6.1.

This article has been archived and is no longer updated by Apple.

Important: Read before installing.

  • Do not interrupt the installation process. If a power outage or other interruption occurs during installation, use the standalone installer (see below) from Apple Support Downloads to update.
  • You may experience unexpected results if you have third-party system software modifications installed, or if you've modified the operating system through other means. (This does not apply to normal application software installation.)
  • This update can be installed on non-startup volumes, but you should only do this if the current startup volume has already been updated to Mac OS X Server version 10.6.1. The simplest way to avoid issues from an improper installation is to start up from the volume that you wish to update.


Installation

There are three ways to update to Mac OS X Server version 10.6.1:

  • Use Software Update
  • Install from a standalone installer
  • Install on a remote server via Server Admin or the softwareupdate command-line utility

If you need to install the update on a remote server, you can do so using the Server Admin application or the softwareupdate command-line tool.
