Hi Yuko,

You've asked this question before, look at the answer...,35464.0.html

Nextcloud comes with basic Collabora configuration. Search online for installation and use cases.

Hi Yuko,

I suspect you need something different than Zentyal. Zentyal is a server operating system that manages users, shares, etc.. For interactive collaboration you could use Nextcloud and have Zentyal as an Active Domain controller for user management and other stuff.

That's funny (not) that I had problems with DBagent expiry only on expired system login. After reading this thread it started to happen regularly just like with everyone else.  :-\
Let see what's the workaround worth.

I also get this error every now and again. I noticed that it happens if I leave the Web Admin console open and let it expiry (overnight). Next morning I have to run 'zs webadmin restart' over ssh to get it sorted.

So remember to always logout ;)

shot in the dark but is this Zentayl installed on Ubuntu? Check free space on the root partition... Clear logs and/or if this is a VM expand drive (LVM root partition)

Had similar problem adding GP policy, access denied etc. turned out it was caused by no space on the hard drive.


Hi Turbotim,

First of all I wonder if you have managed to sort this issue out. I think I'm experiencing similar problem.

Did you have an IP address for each and every VLAN registered in the Zentyal network configuration?

My internal VLANs can't talk to either the Internet or the 'external network' with packets being dropped by Zentyal.

Please can someone explain how the Webadmin network configuration controls the systems network?
Where is the web-based configuration for network and gateways stored?

If I have two gateways installed, making either of them default does NOT change the ip r on the console?

Hi everyone,

I'm still having a difficulty setting up the network rules correctly. My setup looks like this:

Code: [Select]     (OLD domain)            -                             -  via eth0 - Zentyal DC - eth1 (external network) via gateway to the Internet    network backbone        -

The DC itself is happy and knows where things are, I can ping and access both sides.
If I have a device in the domain, it seams to be working fine, I can reach out to the Internet and go to other network.

However, devices from the old domain and network backbone can't reach the Internet. They get DNS responce from the DC but bounce of the firewall or the response is TTL exceded on the eth1.

I created objects for the "old domain" and the backbone, added their relevant IP. I have multigateway rules for interfaces (eth0, eth1) source and destination but still devices from the can't reach the Internet.

Can someone explain how do I allow traffic from network that is NOT directly connected to Zenytal (reaching the eth0 via network switch) to connect to the internet (on eth1).

After following some online resources, especially I added 

Code: [Select]
ln -s /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/
I also deleted and then recreated my user making copy of the Administrator account. I can again create GPOs on the system.

Zentyal 7, using RSAT to create some new GPOs.

I was able to create some GPOs few weeks ago. Today I'm presented with "There is not enough space on the disk". I can delete old GPOs, but not make a new ones.

/var/lib/samba/sysvol/domain.local/ has over 30% disk free (10GB)

Any ideas how to resolve this?

I managed to find that it's not the lack of space but permission of my user. If I use the Administrator (main domain user) GPOs can be created, if I use my user (who is a member of Domain Admins) I get "not enough space".


Thank you for the reassuring.

I really would like to see Zentyal come back to live.

Gesforeda Sl. (extinguida) - I'm no Spanish speaker but that means.. Terms and conditions need upadting  ;) :-X

I'm really interested with the state of Zentyal development. We see little to no activity in this forum, no moderation and some SPAM sneaking in.
[EDIT] SPAM just got cleared - so there is some moderation [/EDIT]

The Zentyal Github hasn't been updated for over 11 months. Issues are not even acknowledged with last Admin note from Jan this year.

What is going on, is Zentyal dying!?

I've been testing Zenytal for couple months now (with the idea that once proved suitable I'll make my bosses to pay for the commercial version). If there's no sign of life in the project, is it worth even looking at it?

Zentyal is an ideal solution, easy to install and configure, Debian based, with clear and simple menu. No other competitor suit me like Zentyal, but I'm concerned about the longevity of the project.
Will we see any updates, is there future in Zentyal?


I see this has been resolved but I have some questions.

I was looking at the Samba4 vfs with acl_xattr here:

This says that the acl_xattr should be already enabled on a DC and then it's NOT to be applied to individual shares. Did you find any issues when activating the acl_xattr?

does this mean that Zentyal doesn't have this enabled by default as suggested in Samba4 docs?

Can't check this here (don't ask) but I guess for the website it is a Let's Encrypt cert with auto renew with cert bot.

I'm more interested with the securing of your Zentyal configuration. Would you care to create a separate post and explain what and how did you try to improve?

Hi jsebme,

I'm confused by what you call internal and external..

to me this is what you have:

Internal --> Zentyal --> external --> ISP router

DHCP with gateway --> Zentyal --> with a gateway of

If that's the case than it is right. Your internal DHCP, served by Zentyal, will have the gateway in the only known network .99.1. Any of the devices connected to that network will use Zentyal to access the other side and Internet. Your ISP will see traffic flowing from and won't be able to distinguish how many clients are "hiding" behind.
