I set up a Mac mini with the server running at my old firm. I have the computer set to restart automatically after a power failure, and Panorama X as a login item. (At the moment, it is not connected to a UPS, although I hope that will change when it is put into service and not just doing a test.). But I wonder if there is a way to get the server to start as a login item also? I am sure, given the history of the utility feed for that building, that there will be occasional outages. I am also teaching someone there how to restart it manually.
BTW, I have confirmed that the server works just fine when I am connected to the office over a VPN. The last network piece is to connect from the other Smith Duggan office, which I will do later today, and I can’t see any reason why that will not work also.
I have an idea to try. I made an alias for PanoramaX Server.app and put that in the Applications folder. That allowed me to select it as a login item in System Preferences, which may eliminate the need for a manual restart. I do recall reading that the preferred method of starting the server is through the preferences, so maybe my approach is not so good?
