I'm reviving this old thread, so apologies if I should have started again.
As I am looking for a straightforward way to put my MacBook Air user data on a ReadyNAS share I'd welcome any user experience in running an OSX 10.7 server to do just that. I want to be able to access the same data (including Office 2011 emails) from either of 2 MacBooks (both internal to the location, so no need for remote access through routers).
All I want to leave on the MacBooks are the OS and the Apps.
If I have a "simple" Mac Mini running the OSX 10.7 server, then I should be able to just that - correct ?
Is there a OSX Server 101 FAQ I should be reading ?
