Yet another installation on Ubuntu 20.04 - some question
« on: November 16, 2022, 05:06:30 pm »
Hi everyone,

so I had (needed) to install another Zentyal 7 from scratch. Started with installing Ubuntu 20.04 Server and then followed the .sh script from zentyal.com.

All was well to where the script attempts to install suricata repo. This has already been reported number of times, where the repo can't be added by the script due to incorrect/lack of signature.

My question here is, could we change the script to include suricata PPA installation as per:
https://suricata.readthedocs.io/en/latest/install.html#ubuntu

After the cli installation finished I wen't to the admin page and continued with the configuration.

Installer hang on 53% with "saving network module" but because I've seen it previously I just let it run (long enough to finish a cup of tea). Then pointed the browser to the new IP and I was "again" welcomed with Configuration Wizard. I skipped it completely and when the website reloaded all was working fine.

This is a VM hosted on proxmox so the IP change during installation isn't much of a problem, plus I already knew this will happen.
I've managed to connect this server as an additional domain controller. All went smooth, with AD syncing without any problems.

Second question in this place relates to DNS... I see no DNS sync between dc01 and the new machine. Does this mean I have to manually copy DNS entries if I want some resilience or is there a way to make it automatic?

Cheerio!

Hello
I have same issue with saving modules status
Fresh install of Zentyal 7.0, only basic modules added (ex. doman controller and file sharing).
when saving changes in modules configuration - it is endless (waited few hours).
I have made 2 separate installtions to be sure, on 2 separate computers. Always the same situation.
I will try to install 6.x and upgrade to 7 to see results.

This behavior is caused by the following bug:

Hi,

You should create an issue or Pull Request in Github with the Suricata issue or improvement (the PPA you mentioned).

Regarding the DNS sync between domain controllers, Zentyal updates the zone using the 'samba_dnsupdate' command, so, if the replication between domain controllers is working correctly, any DNS record added by one of the two DCs, should be synced to the other.

* https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Verifying_the_Directory_Replication_Statuses

Also, keep in mind that Zentyal only displays in the GUI the DNS records created by hand in the GUI itself, the rest of the records must be queried using the CLI.
