I had surgery the next day and haven't been moving too quick since then.   The entry in the journal would not be unusual for a samba system that hasn't been configured yet.  I am sure there was more in the journal than you quoted.  Would you mind doing the restart and then looking at the journal immediately afterwards.  Open your focus to include more than the last few lines.

I have never seen that in the journal.  Do you mean that is what is in the web browser?

Try to start the service via
Code: [Select]
sudo systemctl start zentyal.webadmin-nginx.service
and immediately thereafter check the journal to find out what the cause of the failure was.
Code: [Select]
sudo journalctl -xe

Is the webmin service running?
Code: [Select]
sudo systemctl status zentyal.webadmin-nginx.service

On further thought perhaps this would be slightly better
Code: [Select]
ss -ltnp |less -p nginx
Which does everything from above plus shows the program name and PID info of the services listening to the ports. Further it loads that info into less and searches for the first occurrence of nginx. Note apache is listening to port 443 not nginx.

Please run
Code: [Select]
ss -ltn
It will show what is actually [l]istening on [t]cp ports by [n]umber

This will show you if there is an issue with firewall rules.

Thanks Julio,

The only issue I had was failed dependencies when trying to install the .deb file.  sudo apt-get install -f fixed it.

If hardening is your purpose, wouldn't it be better if said user could not access the database except from localhost and that the user not be able to login except via ssh keys?  Changing the root user from auth_socket is straightforward. 

Code: [Select]
ALTER USER 'root'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED WITH mysql_native_password BY 'mynewpassword';
I had not noticed this change in version 5 but it is not really an issue as long as root has been provisioned in this way.  I dare say you have bigger problems if someone were to compromise the root user.

That password is for the zentyal user.  Specifying -u zentyal in the command yields the correct results

Code: [Select]
mysql -u zentyal -p
Once in  using

Code: [Select]
select * from mysql.user;
will give you a list of users with access to the database.

As it is possible to apply e-mail filtering?

Yes, mailfilter module is now back together with antivirus and jabber, more modules are probably coming soon ;)

would it be possible for the Zentyal staff to give  us a hint which groupware solution we will be seeing going forward.  Openchange is dead.  Sogo is there in stand alone mode.  Is ZCP (Zarafa) an option?

I can appreciate your position and I really don't want to rain on your parade but there is no clean way to upgrade from a 2.x system to a 3.x or 4.x.  Basically you will need to  migrate your mail by hand and stand up the  rest manually.  BTW spamassasin is no longer a managed package in Zentyal 4.x though you can install it yourself and manage it via command line just fine.

try sending a <ctlrl-alt> <F-7>  I suspect the desktop is running but you weren't redirected to the correct virtual console.

Try this:

Setup Thunderbird on your own desktop/laptop.  Set  it up to connect  to the old server with your account (IMAP).  Set up a separate account on the "new" server for yourself and connect to it via Thunderbird as well. 

Select a random group of messages on the old server in Thunderbird and then right click --->copy---new server---inbox.  This should work in all cases.

If you are dealing with a handful of users I suggest having the users migrate  themselves just like this.  This takes the logistics problems out of your court and gives the users a little ownership of the outcome.  Depending on your tolerance for hand holding ,  I think this would be a workable solution for about 30-40 users.  Do you have any more than that?  I can suggest a more automated approach if needed.
