Installation and Upgrades / Re: Samba share permission question
« on: April 09, 2012, 02:46:46 am »
When you use extended ACLs, the configuration in Zentyal applies only to the root directory of each share, and then, ACLs are also applied.

Note that Zentyal only configures shares but does not provide any means to modify permissions of a particular file or directory. When using extended ACLs, besides the command line setfacl/getfacl utils, you should also be able to use Windows interface to change permission.

However, doing this is something I (personally) strongly recommend against. Whenever possible, always choose a simpler, flattened permissions structure. Put all shared folders on the top level and apply the necessary permissions globaly. Usually, I find this is much easier to manage and to understand for users.

I normally use 64 bit OS for production systems, I don't think the memory issue mentioned makes a big difference.

No idea why the 32 bit version doesn't work for you if 10.04 32 bit does :?

I've tried everything that's been suggested and it still doesn't let me get at the Zentyal dashboard - at all!

So far... I've tried the 32 and 64 bit versions of Zentyal 2.3 - in both VMware Fusion and Virtualbox. Both systems install fast and apparently correctly..... but as soon as it tries to start the dashboard, the message comes back 'Unable to connect' referring to the server at localhost.

Has anyone else got something that fixes the problem?


I think that might well be a different story than what was discussed here. Could you please post your question into a new thread so we stay on topic and you have more chances to get proper responses? :).

I'm not an expert on this field but I think you are right in that this could be related to your ipsec tunnels.

Zentyal performs pretty well in some of these more complex network scenarios as it incorporates quagga, which does route auto-discovery(

I am unsure, though, about why it should cause those gateways addresses to show up on the widget. Perhaps someone else can shed some light about that.

Installation and Upgrades / Re: Block email access?
« on: March 23, 2012, 02:24:36 am »
Depending on what you mean:

You can block email access (to POP3, SMTP, IMAP..) using firewall rules. You can even transparently POP3 traffic.

If what you want to do is to filter access to some webmail providers (Yahoo! Webmail, Google Mail, etc...), then you can use the HTTP Proxy module to filter the domains of your choice (check ).

The file you have too look at is not 'dhcpd.conf.mas', but 'subnet.mas'. You can write it to "/etc/zentyal/stubs/dhcp/subnet.mas" so it replaces the normal template.

I am not convinced about the resolution to your exact problem, though. Let everybody know if you manage to fix this please.

Remember that you can always replace the full file (dhcpd.conf.mas) with your own configuration if you don't manage to fix the template logic, so you are free to override the service settings, starting from a semi-working configuration, for example. As usual, it's preferable to do this in the appropriate /etc/zentyal/stubs/ subdirectory.

Creo que tendrás que usar "Autorizar y Permitir", y establecer el horario y días que quieres permitir el acceso a páginas web.

Installation and Upgrades / Re: leftovers

Yet I think it would be a bit risky to simply remove and purge every package that's no longer used by Zentyal... imagine that someone added extra information to the LDAP... it would be risky to simply delete all that. Perhaps it should be root task to finally remove unused packages, or at least Zentyal should ask for confirmation to remove packages when uninstalling modules?

Hola :).

La configuración de horas funciona con "permitir" / "denegar", a día de hoy (Zentyal 2.2) no es posible usar una política de filtrado junto con los periodos de tiempo.

Is blocking '' strictly required? sounds a bit too hard...

Installation and Upgrades / Re: DHCP on both LAN's¿?
« on: March 22, 2012, 02:13:07 am »
Also, make sure that the small switch is only connected to the test computers and to the Zentyal LAN interface. Just in case, note that since your Zentyal is acting as gateway for that small test network, you should be using internally a diferent network address (i..e 192.168.x.y) than in your existing network.

Remember you then need create a dynamic range for the appropriate interface, in order for it to assign IP addresses.

The documentation for DHCP is here: .

Você pode adicionar serviços (como intervalos de porta) para a lista de "serviços conhecidos" a partir da interface Zentyal.

Então, você-pode-utilizar os serviços para definir suas regras de firewall tese, tamen na interface Zentyal.

Yes, there is no 'admin' group in Ubuntu Precise... but a group 'adm' does exist. The 'adm' group provides access to some logs and other system files.

The default /etc/sudoers file, however, refers to an 'admin' group (I believe this is a mistake), but also to a 'sudo' group (which does exist).

Group "sudo" seems to be the new way to go for users to be able to become root through sudo.

If anyone has more information, please comment on :).

Hello simohrchornet and welcome to the forums.

When you are using the File Sharing module, the 'smb.conf' file becomes managed by Zentyal, and any changes you do will be overwritten the next time Zentyal restarts the service.

If you wish to modify one of the files managed by Zentyal, you should customize the template that generates it. Have a look at this fantastic article by one of the core developers: . Check the documentation at as stated by Sixstone below.

In your case, you need to copy and customize the '/usr/share/zentyal/stubs/samba/smb.conf' file, copying it to /etc/zentyal/stubs/samba/smb.conf, and changing the 'browseable' attribute wherever you need.

I hope that helps!
