Shouting at people after waiting only 2 1/2 hrs for a reply isn't the best way to get a helpful response. In fact it's almost a guarantee you'll sink without trace.. This is a community forum. We help because we want to help others, not because we're paid. Ever hear the phrase 'don't bite the hand that feeds you' ?

XP has been EOL for nearly 2yrs.. and you say Win98 ran lightning fast on the same hardware in an earlier post. You're running on a PIII 600MHz... As much as I like to get the max out of working kit, I have to ask - are you from the past?

Do your Win 7 machines able to connect ok ?

"Please be gentle". I request the same courtesy.

ps -aux

What happens when you shutdown via the web interface ? What errors appear in syslog during shutdown ? What non-zentyal software have you installed ? This sounds like the kernel bug described here,27362.0.html
Did you search the forum or were you just venting ?

I understand your frustration, but if Zentyal was a bad as you suggest no-one could use it - and that's clearly not the case.

I'm currently running 4.1 and have installed a lot of extra stuff from the main ubuntu repos..

Here's my current sources list;

deb 4.1 main extra
deb trusty main restricted
deb trusty-updates main restricted
deb trusty universe
deb trusty-updates universe
deb trusty multiverse
deb trusty-updates multiverse
deb trusty-security main restricted
deb-src trusty-security main restricted
deb trusty-security universe
deb-src trusty-security universe
deb trusty-security multiverse

Hope that helps.

Blocking access on incoming ports is easy to achieve with the Zentyal firewall. N.B Blocking incoming access will not affect the outgoing connections, so you can lock down access locally while still allowing the server to access the internet for updates etc.

As much as posts saying RTFM annoy me, RTFM :) The docs are there for a reason..

If you're still stuck after that, I'll try to assist you.

I use backuppc for fine grained backups that run out of hours and are secure (RSync over SSH). It's a superb piece of software;

"BackupPC is a high-performance, enterprise-grade system for backing up Unix, Linux, WinXX, and MacOSX PCs, desktops and laptops to a server's disk. BackupPC is highly configurable and easy to install and maintain."

Find out more here and here and read through the documentation here.

Did you try uninstalling & re-installing the samba package ?,6715.0.html

You're very welcome ! Thanks for the feedback about the 3.13.0-70 kernel.

This bug is still affecting the 3.13.0-70 kernel as reported by lacostewin here. You can either revert to the previous kernel 3.13.0-68 which they reported as working, or edit /usr/share/zentyal-network/flush-fwmarks as suggested by cpt.charisma.

i've updated (long time ago) my servers to Ubuntu Vivid (15.04) LTS enablement stacks (actually kernel version:  3.19.0-33),
works without any issues like a charm!

DESKTOP (if you use GUI (lxde) on server):
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install --install-recommends linux-generic-lts-vivid xserver-xorg-core-lts-vivid xserver-xorg-lts-vivid xserver-xorg-video-all-lts-vivid xserver-xorg-input-all-lts-vivid libwayland-egl1-mesa-lts-vivid
SERVER (if your server running headless (without GUI)):
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install --install-recommends linux-generic-lts-vivid

Have you upgraded to Zentyal 4.2 with vivid without problems ?

Thanks for the update, saves us all having to test it out! Cheers.

Yes I had the same problem, it appears to be an issue with the most recent kernel. I reverted back to the previous kernel and the server is working fine once again.
As with the problem I had upgrading to linux-image-3.16.0-48-generic , I downgraded to the previous kernel image. You can do this by purging the kernel causing the problem;
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get purge linux-image-3.16.0-52-generic and then make sure you run
Code: [Select]
sudo update-grub before rebooting. Your server should be back in action. I can't find any bug reports about this, so it may be a problem with Zentyal that doesn't affect other Linux distributions. We will need to try upgrading again when a new kernel is released.

Installation and Upgrades / 3.16.0-52-generic
« on: November 06, 2015, 12:42:41 am »
I've just done a reboot following the kernel upgrade to 3.16.0-52-generic and I had the 'ip' and 'cut' processes running/hovering at 99% and 73% CPU usage respectively. I wasn't able to get virtualbox webservice working either

Code: [Select]
/etc/init.d/vboxweb-service start
Starting VirtualBox web service!

The box seemed responsive & the web interface came up despite this.. As I rely on the virtualbox instance, I rolled back to the previous kernel and all seemed OK. Anyone else experienced this ? I had a look for kernel errors reported by non-zentyal ubuntu users but couldn't find anything.

I know. I don't have an LVM set up, but I do have RAIDs and that's why I mentioned the 'no valid partition table' as I checked mine. I thought you might have set-up an LVM on a hardware raid or dmraid but I presume LVMs give the same error message without a RAID.

You haven't said how you set it up nor what you think is wrong with your partition table.
