"Disk /dev/mapper/insignia1--vg-root doesn't contain a valid partition table" is normal for a raid device. Your fdisk shows /dev/mapper/XXX which implies a raid setup, but you only have /dev/sda (one drive) at the device level. How did you set this up ?

By default new versions of zentyal use port 8443 for the web admin pages, are you connecting via the following ?

This bug was fixed in the package linux-lts-utopic - 3.16.0-49.65~14.04.1

Re-installed the kernel package
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install linux-image-generic-lts-utopic
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

Rebooted, all good. Currently running 3.16.0-50-generic

Thanks for updating your post. It's always good to fixes fed back for other users. Can you add [SOLVED] to the  Subject line of your original post ? Cheers.

Argh, you beat me to it! :)

Posting this in the hope that it helps someone else. The latest kernel update broke the networking on a primergy server that I manage, as reported here. Network connections were randomly getting reset (every 30s or so) with the following messages recurring in dmesg

Code: [Select]

So I proceeded to downgrade the kernel to the previously working one. I got the list of the kernels installed on the server using

Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg --list | grep linux-image
The most recent one installed was linux-image-3.16.0-48-generic and I proceeded to remove the offending kernel image using

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get purge linux-image-3.16.0-48-generic
and rebuilt grub so that it picked the most recent kernel still installed on the system after removing 3.16.0-48 (linux-image-3.16.0-46-generic)

Code: [Select]
sudo update-grub
After rebooting, the server came back up and worked normally. Currently kernel upgrades are halted until I re-install linux-image-generic-lts-utopic which was removed as part of the kernel downgrade. To get automatic kernel upgrades working again re-install linux-image-generic-lts-utopic. I'll re-attempt the kernel upgrade when .48 is superseded & post again. Status of this bug: "Fix Committed", meaning that the bug will be fixed but a fix will not be available until next kernel release.

there isn't an x86 zentyal iso, the post linked above refers to adding zentyal to an x86 ubuntu iso installation.

Installation and Upgrades / Re: NetBIOS over VPN
« on: September 01, 2015, 03:47:27 pm »
Just the default offered through the Zentyal GUI. OpenVPN TAP adapter & TLS. It's just the server that's not broadcasting its presence over the VPN, when I allow client-client connections I can see the other machines connected to the VPN so I know the info isn't getting blocked by the firewall.

Some of the functionality has been dropped in the recent versions of Zentyal so that the devs can concentrate on 'core' functions that they deem more important.. As you suggest, you can run virtual machines to take over the functions that you're missing in the new version. Wouldn't recommend running old versions of Zentyal though because the security updates won't be available for the version of ubuntu it's build on won't be maintained forever.. You might better off going for a base debian distro and setting that up for the extra functions instead.

The 'official' zentyal way is to use the contrib modules. The contrib repo modules aim to add in additional functionality to the base Zentyal distro. Have a look here for wiki information about and the contrib github repo. Having said that, the wiki refers to Zentyal 3.5 and there have been requests from communtiy members for info on building contrib modules for Zentyal v4.0+ and there's not been much response sadly.

I'm not getting any docs on, just three links that all point to or

I don't think so, as I get the same error message in the VM I set up (shown below) and I have been able to restore the local user accounts too. I still get the error when running sysvolcheck following a sysvolreset and also after re-applying recursive ACLs in the zentyal GUI.

Code: [Select]
ERROR(<class 'samba.provision.ProvisioningError'>): uncaught exception - ProvisioningError: DB ACL on GPO directory /var/lib/samba/sysvol/<DOMAIN>/Policies/{31B2F340-016D-11D2-945F-00C04FB984F9} O:LAG:DAD:P(A;OICI;0x001f01ff;;;DA)(A;OICI;0x001f01ff;;;EA)(A;OICIIO;0x001f01ff;;;CO)(A;OICI;0x001f01ff;;;DA)(A;OICI;0x001f01ff;;;SY)(A;OICI;0x001200a9;;;AU)(A;OICI;0x001200a9;;;ED) does not match expected value O:DAG:DAD:P(A;OICI;0x001f01ff;;;DA)(A;OICI;0x001f01ff;;;EA)(A;OICIIO;0x001f01ff;;;CO)(A;OICI;0x001f01ff;;;DA)(A;OICI;0x001f01ff;;;SY)(A;OICI;0x001200a9;;;AU)(A;OICI;0x001200a9;;;ED) from GPO object

I agree that doesn't look good! On the machine I backed up this error doesn't appear, although when running sysvolcheck I do get;
Code: [Select]
ERROR(<type 'exceptions.TypeError'>): uncaught exception - (61, 'No data available')
Perhaps one of the mods can comment on this, should this be happening after restoring a system ? jbahillo can you chime in here please?

Can you post up the entries in /var/log/zentyal/zentyal.log that relate to enabling/disabling PAM ? I'm hoping there's some errors listed that could help identify why the local users aren't being created.

Dutch / Re: 504 Gateway Time-out
« on: August 26, 2015, 11:45:04 am »
Is it just the printer configuration page that gives you the gateway timeout error ?
You could try shortening the timeouts in /etc/nginx/nginx.conf by adding the following to the http { } section;

Code: [Select]
client_header_timeout 3000;
client_body_timeout 3000;
fastcgi_read_timeout 3000;
client_max_body_size 32m;
fastcgi_buffers 8 128k;
fastcgi_buffer_size 128k;

and then reloading nginx
Code: [Select]
/etc/init.d/nginx reload

Did you get any errors during the restore process ?

Installation and Upgrades / Re: Full Conf Backup via SSH
« on: August 24, 2015, 09:27:54 pm »
There doesn't appear to be a create-backup script under that path.. There is a make-backup script that does the job though :D

It dumped the backup tar into;
Code: [Select]
Backup stored into file /var/lib/zentyal/conf//backups/<date>-<time>.tar

BTW The // is intentional as it's reported by the script to be put in that location.
