Manual install on 18.04 no networking
« on: August 11, 2019, 06:04:44 pm »
Hello,

I setup a new box with Ubuntu 18.04 LTS and manually installed the zentyal packages.
On the configuration page I wanted to install networking, but it failed.
Upon trying to manually install zentyal-network through apt, it showed a conflict with netplan.io
As I thought zentyal will take over the tasks (otherwise why would it have a conflict) I removed netplan and installed the zentyal packages.

But now after booting it doesn't get any network connection.
It does have an IP address and I can access it through ssh in my local network,
but any attempt at outgoing connections (apt-get update, ping, ...) result in name resolution errors.
The DNS is set correctly (at least it's listed on the webportal) and there is no gateway (even setting it statically in the webportal didn't change anything)

HI there

You can add a dns nameserver into /etc/resolv.conf, using this comand:

echo 'nameserver 8.8.8.8' > /etc/resolv.conf

Or edit it with nano

And you can add a default gateway using this:


route add default gw <gateway IP>

Then try use apt update and so on...
