Installation and Upgrades / Re: What's wrong with Zentyal LDAP ? (3.0)
« on: February 21, 2013, 01:40:43 pm »

As far as I know, zentyalro user cannot read passowords, please pay a look to the ACLs:

Code: [Select]
olcAccess: {0}to *
  by dn.exact=gidNumber=0+uidNumber=0,cn=peercred,cn=external,cn=auth manage
  by dn="cn=zentyal,<% $dn %>" manage
  by * break
olcAccess: {1}to attrs=userPassword,shadowLastChange,krb5Key
  by dn="cn=zentyal,<% $dn %>" write
  by anonymous auth
  by dn="cn=zentyalro,<% $dn %>" none
  by self write
  by * none
olcAccess: {2}to * by users read

Only zentyal user can do that.

Sincerely, I think that using zentyalro for your approach is a good option (some zentyal modules already do that, mail, zarafa...). And it's secure. I agree that we may communicate it better to the user, but nothing else

Hi christian,

You don't need anonymous access to authenticate users, some of the Zentyal modules implement bind based authentication. In summary these are the steps you need to make it work:

Configure base dn for your users (or regexp), which will give you the DN for any username. Example:

BASE_DN = ou=Users,dc=zentyal,dc=com

Now, your applications now that for a given user (ie exekias), the DN is:


It only needs to bind to Zentyal LDAP, and authenticate the user if everything goes well.

Most applications support this kind of configuration! (I have tested a lot, for example: wordpress, openerp, moodle, sugarcrm...)

Moreover, if you need to do this based on a search, you can use zentyalro account for that :) I agree that it should be shown on the interface, bug probably we will fix that for 3.2

Best regards

Hi mutax,

And welcome to Zentyal Community ;D

Your approach seems correct to me :) congratulations!

If you want to use a RPC mechanism you can try to hack our master-slave architecture to act as a Zentyal master, I can help you on this :)

I would recommend to do it on 3.0 version, because we have changed master-slave and if you implement this for 2.2 the code will be obsolete soon.

All you have to do to make this work is create a SOAP client and call procedures defined on:

Code: [Select]
In order to get the calls allowed you need to hack the slave register process, so Zentyal will allow you as master. To do so you need to create a certificate and use it on the SSL calls to the SOAP service.

I will be around IRC (#zentyal at freenode) or email (cperez at so if you want some help on the master-slave setup, just ping me :)

Hi all,

Your problem is that once users is enabled, you cannot change the base dn. If you want to do it you will need to reconfigure users module (but this will delete your current users + configuration):

/usr/share/zentyal/unconfigure-module users

And then configure your desired DN in Users menu, before enabling it.

Best regards

Hi Olimar,

As robb said, now masters can have modules too. So your problem should be with replication itself. Can you look at your /var/log/zentyal/zentyal.log file (in Master server) and see if you see any sync errors? They should happen every 5 minutes if present.

Also, is the master showing the slave in slaves table? Is its hostname correct?

Thank you for your feedback, new master-slave architecture is now on beta, and can have some glitches on special cases, so your feedback is really appreciated

Best regards!


Supongo que el principal motivo por el que ésto es así es que puedes alojar todo bajo el mismo dominio.

En cualquier caso parece que to comentario tiene bastante sentido, intentaré revisar esa parte de la configuración en Zentyal para ver si podemos mejorar su usabilidad.

Gracias por tu aporte!

Un saludo

Hi arnada,

Are you following these steps: ?


Hi skyflyer,

Currently there are 2 processes that can cause this behavior: logs and events threads, depending on your setup, if you have too much log processing this may be consuming (in ram + cpu). We are working on improving the performance of that code for 3.0, but take into account that this may be caused buy your specific configuration.

Best regards

Hi Luke,

Probably your problem is related with file permissions. Check that the webserver can read the public_html dir (it runs under www-data user). So:

Code: [Select]
cd /home/gallery
chown gallery:www-data public_html
chmod g+rx public_html

Hi guys,

Probably the problem here is that Zentyal is not aware of the change you did in the user. You will need to restart Zentyal Administration GUI to get it working:

Code: [Select]
/etc/init.d/zentyal apache restart

Did it work for you?

Best regards,

Hi guys,

As robb said, zentyal is based on Ubuntu LTS, but take this into account: next Ubuntu LTS will be Precise Pangolin 12.04. That means that it will be out in April! We are already working on next Zentyal version, which will be based on Precise, so as soon as first Zentyal 2.3 beta is out you will be able to install and test it.

Hi ymangolds,

The note only applies to zentyal modules (if you made one by yourself). Migration script shouldn't make any change on services not managed by zentyal. The only related thing that it does is an "apt-get upgrade", so it should be safe for your setup.

Anyway, as you mention, is a good idea to try first on a testing environment, if you want to clone your installation you can try some cloning tool like

Hi guys,

For those of you interested in contributing, just let you know that we've recently released a new developing guide, with all you need to write a simple module. I think you will find it interesting, and the examples are very helpful!

Take a look to:

If you finally try to do something, don't hesitate to ask for help! We will be very happy if you write some module :)

Best regards


La reinstalación de los esclavos debería ser suficiente. Para hacerlo fácil tan sólo tienes que ejecutar el siguiente comando (en cada esclavo):


Tras ello tendrás que reconfigurar el esclavo y los módulos dependientes de Usuarios y Grupos.

Un saludo

Hi sheck,

please, after seeing that error, it would be very useful if you provide the output of this command:

Code: [Select]
ps aux | grep ebox

Thank you
