Zentyal 3.2 available!
« on: September 19, 2013, 09:13:14 am »
Hello,

The Zentyal Development Team proudly presents Zentyal 3.2, a new stable version the Linux small business server!

Zentyal Server 3.2 offers greater Samba integration, featuring support for Group Policy Objects (GPOs) and Organizational Units (OUs) in the Samba, Proxy, Mail and Zarafa modules. It also comes with improved security guaranteeing safe mobile communications due to the integration of L2TP support in the IPsec module and new Intrusion Prevention module based on Suricata.

In addition, significant usability improvements - such as migration from JavaScript Prototype framework to jQuery, Single Click Support to enable modules and dependencies, Headless mode, etc. - have taken place as well, making Zentyal Server GUI much faster and easier to use. Moreover, the upgrade from an existing Zentyal 3.0 installation is very easy and only requires a few commands to be executed.

You can check out all the details in the official announcement:

http://trac.zentyal.org/wiki/Document/Announcement/3.2

This brand new stable version is available for download at:

http://www.zentyal.org/download

We're looking forward to receiving your feedback! Remember that Zentyal Summit 2013 (Oct. 3 and 4, Zaragoza, Spain) offers an excellent opportunity to learn more from the Zentyal Server 3.2 release and to give your feedback on-site!

Finally, don't forget to spread the word about these great news! Check out the official press releases (available in English and Spanish).

Congratulations! The faster admin interface is very much appreciated.
Going to read up on the changes and I just may take the plunge.
Is 3.2 still doing the double LDAP sync thing?
Is DHCP on virtual interfaces permitted?
Does the firewall no longer hang on adding large blocks of IP addresses?

Cheers.

Congratulations on this milestone. I already updated my homeserver from 3.1 beta to 3.2 and it went flawless.
I am curious to hear about reports of a 3.0 server updated to 3.2 works as smooth.

What I see this far is very to my liking.
Using Likewise-open to join an Ubuntu client to the Samba domain works like a charm.

great work.

@Escorpiom: afaik there is still a sync between Zentyal LDAP and Samba4 LDAP. Unfortunately you can not use DHCP on a virtual interface.

Samba failed to upgrade from 3.0 to 3.2
My solution was: remove it using apt-get and the reinstalling using apt-get.
Profiles were lost:(

I've the same problem on my test server. I don't yet do what you have done, but upgrades from 3.0 to 3.2 are not working  correct.

Hello,

I have tested upgrading to the new 3.2 release from previous versions.

1) Upgrade from the latest beta release 3.1.13
You must be root to do it.
Adapt the file sources.list in the map /etc/apt/sources.list and change the release references of the Zentyal links to 3.2
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/zentyal/3.1/ubuntu precise main
change to:
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/zentyal/3.2/ubuntu precise main
and:
deb http://archive.zentyal.org/zentyal 3.1 main extra
change to:
deb http://archive.zentyal.org/zentyal 3.2 main extra

execute the next commands:
apt-get update
apt-get upgrade
Afther a reboot, the upgrade is now finished and the server runs now release 3.2

Remarque:
In the administration GUI, there is still Zentyal Community Edition Beta in the logo on top.

2) Upgrade from release 3.0.29
You must be root to do it.
Adapt the file sources.list in the map /etc/apt/sources.list and change the release references of the Zentyal links to 3.2
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/zentyal/3.0/ubuntu precise main
change to:
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/zentyal/3.2/ubuntu precise main
and:
deb http://archive.zentyal.org/zentyal 3.0 main extra
change to:
deb http://archive.zentyal.org/zentyal 3.2 main extra

execute the next commands:
apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade
Afther a reboot, the upgrade is now finished and the server runs now release 3.2

Remarque:
Starting the administration GUI in Firefox the first time may result in not correctly showing the pages, reloading the pages solve this problem from then the menus appear correct.
The user administrator is not showed anymore , this is a domain administrator, i use this account to join windows clients in the domain. I now it is easy to define a new domain administrator account, but the administrator account is still there but can not be used anymore so zentyal delite it or show it.
In the administration GUI the option Printer Sharing , starting cups from this menu is not wrking anymore while it was ok in release 3.0. It is a problem with the link it works with http://localhost:631 but not with http://servername:631. Servername is the naam of the server, i have made a ticket for the error but zentyal find it not needed to improve it.

Best regards,
Ian

I did this way :

sudo sed -ri 's/zentyal(.)3.0/zentyal\13.2/g' /etc/apt/sources.list
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

this what the Zentyal tells to do.

Thanks Ian for the explanation, it seems easy to do.
One question: Where did you get Zentyal 3.0.29?
I have only seen Zentyal up to 3.0.27, what did I miss?

Cheers.

My Dashboard send this message after login:
FATAL: Couldn't connect to LDAP server ldapi://%2fvar%2frun%2fslapd%2fldapi: connect: Connection refused

The following packages do not upgraded :-(

Can anyone help me ?

Hey Guys,

Top notch, absolutely brilliant.

Forget 3.0 woes, 3.2 rocks.

Well done as the Zentyal team deserved something as perfect as this.

:)

I installed 3.2 from scratch. Haven't connected the network clients yet. File manger has updated last night.

So far for me everything is going well and this release is much better than 3.0.

Its only just been released so still a bit bleeding edge but from first looks, it looks good. Really good actually.

Thats just my impression.
