Installation and Upgrades / DHCP not starting and eBox says it is
« on: March 28, 2009, 03:13:45 am »
"The module was restarted correctly." but it wasn't because it's still off even if I hit start. I saw someone with a problem from July but it was just magically fixed for this person. I started having DHCP issues when I put 3 NICs more in the server.

Installation and Upgrades / Change to a custom subnet
« on: March 27, 2009, 10:34:44 pm »
If this feature isn't already in eBox, I kinda need it asap. My ISP only gives out subnet masks and that's not an available option. I guess I didn't really notice. Is there any way to manually set this up without breaking anything?

Thanks! :D

[EDIT]: All it seems I need to do is add somewhere as a valid subnet. I can get a connection but can't force EBOX to see the gateway a valid address because it thinks the subnet is something else.

Since eBox uses PHP and XML files for the config, I think I can do it, but I don't know where to go.

I installed eBox 1.0 from the ISO today.

Code: [Select]
Media change: please insert the disc labeled
 'Ubuntu-Server 8.04.2 _Hardy Heron_ - Release i386 (20090121.1)'
in the drive '/cdrom/' and press enter

I get that error when I try to apt-get stuff. I don't have an optical drive in this PC and don't wanna have to keep a USB drive mounted all the time. Is there an easier way to install software? Do I need to tell it it can actually use the Internet connection it has?

Installation and Upgrades / Moving static IPs to another adapter
« on: March 27, 2009, 08:25:56 am »
Is it going to be possible for me to move the static IPs I'm assigning to another ethernet adapter when I get that plugged in? I'm afraid because I've added 30 static routes already and don't wanna go through typing all of this in again.

My Situation
eBox installed into a machine without all of the hardware it should have because I will be shutting down my network later today to move it. I am currently setting up the eBox unit with all the right settings so it will just be a matter of moving the hardware, reassigning which interfaces get what IPs and settings, and then plugging it back in. From there I can do the rest of the things I would need to do like moving the data for certain domains and making sure the Internet works.

Is this possible or would a module have to be written to include this functionality?

"The DNS service in eBox features a simple to use server which allows you to add domains. And within each domain, you can add hosts and aliases for each one of them. Note that it lacks features such as zone transfers, subdomains and so forth. Those add-ons will be added in the future." ~Source: eBox User Guide

Does this mean that only DNS caching of subdomains doesn't work or actual domain subdomains for webpages isn't working? I'm trying to figure out if eBox support the ability for me to setup my home network as the host for my family's webpages as I've done with Gentoo.

Would forwarding to work? Can I even make a subdomain for any eBox hosted domain? Does eBox host domains for the Internet as well so I can host my family's webpages at home (I have a static IP)?

Installation and Upgrades / Saving needed config files
« on: March 27, 2009, 05:30:34 am »
Now that I know eBox is it's own thing where I can download an ISO, and it'll work all the drivers itself, I need to copy the config where where I put all my static routes so when I install eBox into this machine, I won't have to spend 2 hours reconfiguring all the routes by hand. Anyone know how? I think the files are in /var/lib/ebox/conf.d, but I dunno which files I'd need specifically. I just want my routes and domains I'm setting up w/ eBox. The rest of the info I'm fine redoing.

Installation and Upgrades / eBox becomes inaccessible randomly
« on: March 27, 2009, 04:46:33 am »
After installing ebox and configuring it, usually after a reboot, I become unable to access the page anymore until uninstalling reinstalling, then it does it again.

I have no clue what the issue is. When installing it, I changed the default port to 10000 the first time, this time I can't remember if I did it or not but I do know I was accessing it from 443; although, I can't access ebox no matter what port I try and even if I try on the machine itself directly.

I ended up reformatting the machine, only installing OpenSSH and letting eBox do the rest. It was working perfectly until I restarted, now I have no access again.


P.S. I think there's a bug if you assign a virtual interface with the number 0 where it does not exist, you cannot delete it because it doesn't exist, and you can't add one over it because there is something there. My guess is, this is why it breaks the configuration of accessing this thing over the web even on the machine itself.
