MAC server OS Evaluation

I wonder if Apple has MAC server OS Evaluation copy that can be installed as a Virtual Machine in VMware Workstation.

Thank you

You would need to install Mac OS X Server on VMware Workstation on Apple Mac hardware, otherwise it would be a breach of the Apple EULA.

2. Permitted License Uses and Restrictions.

A. Single Use License. Subject to the terms and conditions of this License, unless you have purchased a Family Pack or Upgrade license for the Apple Software, you are granted a limited non-exclusive license to install, use and run one (1) copy of the Apple Software on a single Apple-branded computer at a time. You agree not to install, use or run the Apple Software on any non-Apple-branded computer, or to enable others to do so. This License does not allow the Apple Software to exist on more than one computer at a time, and you may not make the Apple Software available over a network where it could be used by multiple computers at the same time.


Any discussion which is a breach of the Apple EULA, cannot be discussed on Experts Exchange.

OS X Evaluations, and Previews are available from the Mac OS Developers Network.

I am pretty sure the answer is no. The Apple EULA allows installation of Apple software only on Apple hardware, so unless you were planning on installing on VMWare Fusion running on a Mac, it would not be legal. Also, Server is only a $20 upgrade on the regular OS, so an evaluation copy would not seem to be necessary.

Mac Server OS is an addon to the current version of Mac OS X Mountain Lion.  $19.99
