Today, Apple published https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT208312, which states:
As of April 21, 2022, Apple has discontinued macOS Server. Existing macOS Server customers can continue to download and use the app with macOS Monterey.https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT208312
As someone that cut my teeth with OSX Server on 10.3 (Panther), I’d like to say farewell old friend.
In addition, Apple have posted a document on choosing and MDM solution and as well have another document advising that:
Apple will discontinue Fleetsmith service on October 21, 2022https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT213238
As of April 21, 2022, Apple has discontinued new signups for Fleetsmith.
If you’re looking for a replacement for either Profile Manager or Fleetsmith, why not head over to the MacAdmins.org Slack, or reach out to folks like.. oh, I dunno.. dataJAR 🙂
Anyways, farewell macOS Server!

It’s interesting that Apple bought up Fleetsmith and have now decided to terminate it.
Before they nought it up, it had interesting reporting features that Jamf seem to either lag behind with or lack entirely, and Apple stripped out upon purchase so it was just a bare bones MDM solution.
