You didn’t say which generation of Mac Pro. As others have said, the current Mac Pros (cylindrical) are probably poorly supported.

At work, I’ve been running FreeBSD on a 2009 Mac Pro (cheese grater), bare metal as a web server.

As that is old hardware (however I’ve got a lot of them, from a research compute cluster), my home machine is a Dell server class machine - 8 drive bays vs. 4 on the old Mac Pro, and none on the current Mac Pro…
