Good-day Folks,

I've been running Zentyal v7.0.5 on a small church network for a few months now without any issues, then all of a sudden this past weekend, I got an error while attempting to make an edit to a Group Policy Object via the RSAT Group Policy Management Console from a Windows 10 workstation.  The error message simply said "There is Not Enough Disk Space".

I am unable to create any new GPOs as well, but strangely I can delete them.  When I access the SYSVOL folder from Windows Explorer, I am unable to create any files in the folder (as a quick test, so I'm suspecting perhaps some permissions have changed but can't figure out where).

This is what I see in "/var/log/samba/samba.log" -

I see one other post on here with a similar issue - - but their solution doesn't seem to work for me.  Any help is very much appreciated, thank you.

Email and Groupware / Zentyal 7.0 Fetchmail Not Working Anymore
« on: October 11, 2021, 09:00:44 pm »
Good-day folks,

Hope you're all doing well.  So, I'm testing a Zentyal 7.0 installation as a Proof of Concept for my company; to have Zentyal serve as our Primary Domain Controller, DNS, and Groupware Server.  I managed to create an account for myself and was testing the Groupware functionality.  I successfully enabled the "Retrieve External Emails" functionality and was able to fetch emails from our external mail provider.  However, due to a minor configuration mistake I made with the stub file for fetchmail, I ended up getting lots of duplicate mails.

So I reverted the change I made, leaving the original config file and rebooted the server.  Now, fetchmail refuses to retrieve external mails and is throwing the following error message:

Code: [Select]
Oct 11 14:21:27 dc01 fetchmail[3605]: socket error while fetching from
Oct 11 14:21:27 dc01 fetchmail[3605]: Query status=2 (SOCKET)

I've restarted the mail module from the admin interface, and rebooted the server; still it's not working.  Has anybody see this happen with their Zentyal 7.0 instance?

Hello guys,

I just deployed a Zentyal 2.0 box in testing mode and I want to know if it's possible to join computers from a remote office - on a different subnet - to the domain.

I have two networks connected via VPN Tunnel through a Cisco 2901 router on both ends:

  • Site A ( (Main Site where DC resides)
  • Site B ( (Remote site)

  • I can ping the DC using both the FQDN and IP from within Site A.
  • I can ping the DC using IP from Site B but not FQDN
  • After modifying the hosts file on a pc in Site B, I can ping the DC using the FQDN

Thus far I have had no problem connecting PCs within the same subnet to the domain.  I just can't get the PCs from the remote office (Site B) to connect to the domain.  Would love any assistance that can be given, thanks.

Installation and Upgrades / Can't Connect to LDAP
« on: August 23, 2011, 04:44:38 am »
Hello guys,

I'm new to Zentyal 2.0 and Linux - alltogether.  I've done all I can - google searches and other things to figure out how to get my users to be able to connect to the LDAP server from their mail clients such as Outlook.  However, NO SUCCESS.

When I check the Ldap settings under the Users and Groups, here's what I find:

Code: [Select]
Base DN: dc=server1,dc=centraltruck,dc=com
Root DN: cn=ebox,dc=server1,dc=centraltruck,dc=com
Password: XXXX
Users DN: ou=users,dc=server1,dc=centraltruck,dc=com
Groups DN: ou=Groups,dc=server1,dc=centraltruck,dc=com

Now, it's important to note that the domain name I'm using was made up.  I followed the instructions in the installation - to make up one.  I'm new to databases so I'm not sure if this is right.  However, it must be - because the PDC is working fine and I've been able to connect two Windows XP workstations to the domain without a problem.

I should also point out that all my research about slapd shows that the conf file should be in /etc/ldap/ldap.conf  - however, it's not.  It's actually located at /etc/ldap.conf.  So I don't know if something is causing this to be off - or perhaps there's nothing wrong.

There is an ldap.conf file located in /etc/ldap/ however, it's different from the one located in /etc/.

I might be doing something wrong, but would really love it if somebody could help me.  I'm really looking forward to testing this as a solution for my company (as opposed to getting a Windows Server with all the ACL expenses that comes with it).

So far everything is working perfectly - EXCEPT FOR LDAP.

Sincerely Yours,


Installation and Upgrades / [SOLVED]: Cannot Reach Admin Interface
« on: August 19, 2011, 03:19:50 am »
Hello Guys,

I'm totally new to the Ubuntu/Linux environment and I just installed Zentyal 2.0 today.  I'm working on a HP/Compaq ProLiant ML310 G1 Server with Ubuntu Server 10.04 installed.

This is what I was doing:
I had just managed to finish the installation and configuration process.  Zentyal saved its settings then I rebooted the machine.  After reboot, I entered the interfaces section and changed eth1 from dynamic to static and assigned an ip address.  I then hit the "Save Changes" button in the top-right corner, and that's where I believe the problem started.

The saving process stalled on the 11th or 12 processes which I believe was the "Firewall" settings.  I think Zentyal was trying to save the new IP for the second interface to the firewall settings when the system hung.  So I was forced hit F5 to refresh the browser - and that's when I lost connection to the server.  From this point on all pings to both interfaces are unsuccessful.


sudo /etc/int.d/ebox firewall stop

I've tried using that command to stop the firewall - thinking that's what's blocking all connections to the server

Beyond this, I don't what else to do.  I've tried searching the forum but can't find any solutions.  I saw one post here,7082.0.html and it's marked as solved, but I don't see anything information in there that'll help my situation.

Your help would be greatly appreciated.
