Make a client pretend it is a server

Some tools only work on the server version of Mac OS X.

In order to make these tools work on a client you can make the system think it is a server by issuing the following command:

sudo touch /System/Library/CoreServices/ServerVersion.plist

You may then use these server tools.
Afterwards you will have to change things back:

sudo rm /System/Library/CoreServices/ServerVersion.plist

Make sure to not leave out the last line, else your computer will think its Mac OS X Server!
