    Is it possible to upgrade a non-server version of OS X(Lion) to Server version?

    Currently I have non-server version of OS X(Lion) but I want to use calendar server. To the best of my knowledge, it needs a server version of OS X(Lion). Is there any way to upgrade it to the server version? If yes then kindly tell me how? If not then, is it possible to do something using scratch?
