Netboot and Admin Tools In OS X Server

Apple has added two new OS X Server-related articles to the Knowledge Base. One refers to OS X Server 10.2is Netboot being able to use 2GB and smaller images, and the other explains an issue installing Admin Tools. Appleis Knowledge Base (sometimes referred to as the KBase) is a central location for all of Appleis support documents and other important information.

The version of NetBoot included with OS X Server 10.2 and later supports the use of 2GB and smaller images. The very brief article from Apple:
