Part of the services is hidden in the spring of 2018. But only for new users. Those who have already set up the servers like calendar, will be able to continue to use them, but temporarily.

In the future these services will be permanently deleted, so anyone who rely on them, you should look for an alternative solution.

In the spring of Apple “disconnect”:

  • the calendar server,
  • server contacts
  • DHCP
  • DNS
  • the mail server
  • NetInstall,
  • VPN
  • web servers,
  • Wiki.
