No client cert needed.

Hello all,

I have just tried with Ubuntu and android clients and it works flawlessly, though I recall having some problems making it work with Win7...

News and Announcements / Samba4 extended how'to & Samba updates
« on: February 07, 2013, 05:35:09 pm »
Hello everyone,

As some of you have already noticed, we still have two pending detailed Samba how-to's (link to the available ones One of the most important ones being the 'Total Migration'. The reason we still don't have written this how-to's is that we are waiting to integrate the last samba release (4.0.3) which is expected to fix a lot of bugs, and thus make the how-to's somewhat different and shorter  :D

  • provision with the correct access control list values by default.
  • honor the ACLs correctly.
  • fixed many issues around FSMO role transfer, and DRS replication stability.

Moreover, from now on, we are going to bundle the binaries and libraries using samba's source code instead of dynamically linking the system libraries. Associated subsystems, like kerberos, ldb and so on will be deployed as intended by the samba developers, fixing another bunch of know issues

Don't hesitate to answer in this thread if you need further clarification of any of the points explained here, we will keep you posted and hope the improvements that we are planning for our future zentyal-samba releases will prove useful to you!


Hello everyone,

A first draft of

- Possible documentation appendix covering /etc/zentyal parameters, description, justification and possible tweaks.

is already available at:

Still needs some polishing and some details, but could be a starting point. What do you think? Should we continue the effort
together  ;)?


Ok, apparently the list has had good reception, very good  :). Unless someone complains the next few days, we can consider it closed and start the real work  :D

Thanks for your feedback everyone!

News and Announcements / Zentyal doc for advanced users [planning]
« on: April 20, 2012, 07:58:06 pm »
Hello everyone,

In our last Zentyal Community Council, we discussed about the need of some "advanced user" documentation. This documents and how-tos are supposed to fill the existing gap between the current Zentyal doc (kind of cookbook, easy-to-follow step-by-step GUI guide) and the development guides (how to develop new Zentyal modules using perl and Zentyal framework).
The target person is someone used to hack his way around using the CLI, that wants to go a couple
of steps beyond what is possible using only the web interface.

Based on the most frequent requests and what we consider interesting for this target public,
we have put together the following list:

- Troubleshooting and debugging Zentyal, main log files for Zentyal and each one of the services, how to reproduce and catch the errors on the fly, verbose description.
- How to integrate third party applications with Zentyal's LDAP (moodle, openerp, subsonic, whatever...)
- How to adjust the service templates to modify the translation between the web GUI and the resulting
configuration files in a permanent fashion.
- Proper partitioning, RAID0, RAID1 and RAID5 and LVM, how to do it, why and when to do it and good
- Possible documentation appendix covering /etc/zentyal parameters, description, justification and possible tweaks.

We really think this will make a great difference  :D. Are you missing any other topic? Would you like to contribute with some howto?


Thanks SorlaK, I will repost the response for the English-speaking people:

The options "TLS for SMTP server" and "Require authentication" are no longer present in the interface, they are assumed as enabled. This is, the SMTP server will always use TLS and the users won't be able to sent mails without authentication. This is a little errata in the doc.

Hola SorlaK,

Si te refieres a las opciones "TLS for SMTP server" y "Require authentication", sí, es un error de la documentación. Ambas se dan por supuestas, es decir el servidor SMTP siempre usará TLS y en ningún caso se podrán enviar correos sin autenticación, por eso no se muestran más en la interfaz. Muchas gracias por avisar, lo cambiaremos en la próxima revisión.

Hello Knutselsmurf,

Your problem is probably in the concordance between DNS and the 'Common Name' of the cert. Post this question in your course's forum and I will follow-up.


News and Announcements / New Pootle version !
« on: December 22, 2010, 12:33:03 pm »
Hello everyone!

We are glad to announce a brand new pootle platform which solves most
of the deficiencies of the old one.

Please check it out at:

PS: On the downside, since the accounts are so different in this
version, we cannot port them reliably, so please re-register
your account, apologies for the inconvenience.

Kind Regards

Hello again,

Just a kind reminder since we haven't seen much updates in the main languages of our pootle platform:

The time limit to translate the new strings is tomorrow, any translation after that is, of course, welcome, but won't be available in the next installer (you will have to wait another cycle).

Thanks and merry xmas everyone,

Hello dear Zentyal translators,

As some of you may know, we have the 'Disaster Recovery' feature almost ready, this means new text strings in Zentyal (which will be added in pootle next Monday) and some effort from our beloved translators so everyone can enjoy this new feature in their native language.

A reminder of our pootle URL:

Thanks as always for your collaboration,
Kind Regards

more overtime work for me without pay

Actually, the idea of the subscription + support is to save the sysadmin time and avoid risks
in production deployments. In the webpage and the official offering we clearly state
that the free version is meant for testing environments. If you put the community version of Zentyal
in a production environment is under your own criteria and risk.

Spanish / Re: Consulta Soporte - Partners
« on: November 09, 2010, 05:21:26 pm »
Hola urkoh,

Voy a responder a tus preguntas referentes a los partners.
¿Podemos escoger cualquier partner o estamos obligados a coger el más cercano? ¿Cómo funciona?

- Podéis escoger el partner que prefiráis; si nos consultas a nosotros, te recomendaremos un partner de acuerdo a básicamente dos cosas: cercanía y clientes satisfechos de los que tenemos constancia. En caso de que ninguno de nuestros partners te pueda atender (por razones de urgencia, diferencia de idioma, etc...), te podemos garantizar los servicios nosotros mismos.

Los partners de Zentyal han completado un proceso de entrenamiento, por lo que deberían estar cualificados para realizar tu despliegue, además, actúan como revendedores de nuestros servicios (suscripción, soporte técnico, etc). Aunque no forzamos a nuestros partners a seguir los precios oficiales, estos están disponibles online, es lo que te cobraremos nosotros y los precios de un partner no deberían variar apenas o nada.

¿Para contratar el soporte de un partner es necesario tener 'subscription' contratada, o al ser partner ofrecen unos precios y condiciones  distintos a los de la compañía?

En principio sí, el partner te ofrece soporte de segundo nivel y nosotros ofreceríamos el de tercer nivel, todo esto sobre una máquina con suscripción 'Profesional' o 'Enterprise'. Si un partner te ofrece soporte sin suscripción, ten en cuenta que no cuenta con nuestro soporte para esa máquina. De nuevo, nuestro modelo funciona como suscripción + soporte, con unos precios oficiales y que no deberían variar significativamente de un partner a otro, y esto es lo que un partner oficial nuestro debería ofrecerte.

Un cordial saludo.

I Agree, I've made about 5 questions in the last montt, all ofh them has been never replied.
The basic suscription doesn't work either, the subscription is forever in "pending" state...

We receive an automatic notification each time a person registers a basic subscriptions. If the data doesn't seem plausible to us, we may not approve the account. Apologies if your data was correct and we didn't approve it, anyway we always send an email with a contact email to complain if there is any problem with your subscription. Resubmit your data or mail me at mburillo at zentyal dot com, and I will solve your issue.
