Installation and Upgrades / some logg-on log off issues on z 3.1
« on: May 17, 2013, 09:19:24 pm »

after small tests im noticing a few minor things and 1 major issue:

lets start with the small things:
the second time im starting up my server i get promted to a terminal logon ....
witch by the way should be the way zentyal will handle  monitorless-servers. the only issue i see for non-techi users, is that there is no  indication  for them on how to get into the grafical user interface...  so a message saying:  " you can login with your username + password here,   than  type startx at the following promt to start the grafical interface "   

if this  booting to the cli was unitended behaviour  for some strange reason i would still hope that this 'bug' will not be fixed and the above started tip would still be added as a 'patch' 

but there is a more pressing matter:

when in the gui:  you het the start menu  and go to  'log off'  the grafical sessing is nicely terminated  BUT your not logged of from the system,  instead i was still logged on as:  admuser@zen31.domain.lan   on tty1 obviously this should NOT be,  and many people with either  no know how to, or  forget to  logg of completely and access to the server's configuration may be at risk

i dont think that zentyal has  ppc support  but if your able to  build your own packages or install from source.

seams like    in  smb config   browsable  is  set to false...  im not sure ... if its possible to fix  with the webgui  buit you can add it to the  zentyal / samba  .mas  file...

if you post more info (for example your hardware specks  the  tail of   TOP  or HTOP   when running that many clients, and  even the specs of your network ( for example:  maybe your router/switch/modem  has to limited resources to  route/twich trancieve  that many packets...

please dont expect us to solve your problems  if you dont tell us everything  (even the smallest detail)... 

i can not say it to many times,   files that are managed by zentyal do NOT live in  /etc 

google =  "zentyal stubs"  or  "zentyal  template" and you will find your answer.

in 1 word  you!...

long answer,   you probably used a faulty disk to start with, or your  cd burner is to blame, 

 this kind of behaviour happens with me if im using 1 certain type of cheap (or old) disks   
or a faulty  cd-burnder... try a diferent type of disk   check if your optical drive is properly supporting the type of   media  (for example some drives dont support  dvd-RW  or  DVD+R     - and try again.

if all else fails use a  usb pendrive.

...  dingen die je niet noemt...
 kunnen gebruikers wel inloggen  via de webapp?

wat voor foutmeldingen krijg je...

there is 1 setting that i have my doubts about... 

you said that in your firewall rules  you made 2 listings...

1:   from  wan to  zentyal  udp port  abc
2:   from  wan  to  lan udp port  abc

my doubts is that  rule 1 is false  and only rule 2 should be applied...  because with natting you can not AND hosts a services on the local machine  AND  capture data and forward it...  at least not at the same  interface.

i agree with chris ... BUT,  please let me say this once,   its  NOT a good idea to come here for help,  spend our time and than refuse to do what we tell you to do,  unless it is not possible (which is allmost never the case)...

so again, do what i said in the last post...  because it will give us valued information about where the problem is most likely to be expected..  its not intended for keeps, but is the (easiest) way to determin where the problem is)...

rather thaqn using everest  ... please  run a ubuntu live cd  to see if you A >> can connect to the (inter)network  ...   if you cant....   than  connect a usb pendrive   and once it is mounted    copy-paste the opput of   lshw  (or  lspci) or both,   to the usb drive  and from your desktop  upload it to pastebin and share it with this forum... once we know more we might be able to help.

just for reference... you say that it worked be before  but it sudenly no longer worked...

what did you change,  did you recently change your zentyal firewall - did you previously had to configure any rulles in hte FW to make it work and if so are these rules still there... 

does it work  if you put your   ddwrt thingy  on your wan port (temporarely exluding zentyal from the  equasion..  there are so many things unanswer that we cant even really begin to help you...

half_life agreed,  i wasn't criticzing but i wanted to add to the information to help understand more about it...
the only  small crictic i gave was... that  after you did the 2 ipbased  you took a host on a diferent network... 
first ping an ip by google than  a dns by yahoo instead of also google...

the rest i absolutely agree,   im also intrested about the  / switch / wifi app  / router device thingy...

what i dont like about this is the folling..

you are  plinging   1  local router (zentyal in this case)  by  IP...
than you are pinging  google public  dns server ...  but than you are pinging not google  but yahoo...
where from my standpoint you would have pinged 

anyway,  43ms  too  is a bit hight but absolutely within any normal limitations...  this leads me to beleave that the 500ms  ping time  is releated to dns resoltuion and not to network routing

that said,   you should find out why this is...  a first logical step for me would be to check  how fast zentyal local terminal   will be at pinging  and than

so PLEASE,   pretty PLEASE,   read before posting.

about the   .computer domain  you are correct,   im however not entirely sure how to correct sutch.

if you Do find a solution outside of this forum  please also add the steps you found to solve this problems as im sure others would want to know this also...
