Installation and Upgrades / Domain naming conventions
« on: June 19, 2011, 08:19:50 pm »
I have a problem with how Zentyal handles Domain names.  My companies' Domain name is GLTC_DOM.  The underscore is used to denote that it is a domain.  This works properly with Windows 2003 and 2008 servers.  My workstation naming convention is "GLTC-XXXXX"  with the dash denoting that it is a workstation.  The Underscore is an illegal character according to the Zentyal web interface.  I know that I can edit the stub files or edit the configuration files after they have been generated.  My point is that I shouldn't have to.  Has anyone else found this to be a problem?

Installation and Upgrades / Log summary problems
« on: March 17, 2011, 04:39:13 am »
When I am looking at logs and choose summary, I get a strange error when I attempt to look through the details at the bottom of the page.  When I click to move on to any page past one I get an error in the frame that says :
Page not found (show help) (hide help)
we're sorry
The page cannot be found

    * If you typed the URL manually, please check it
    * Maybe a change in the Zentyal configuration or software made no longer available the requested page
    * If you need more help, you may want visit Zentyal homepage for documentation and mailing lists

Interestingly, the http summary page is not effected.  Any thoughts? This worked when i first installed the system.

Installation and Upgrades / [SOLVED] NTP issues when running VM
« on: February 22, 2011, 09:43:45 pm »
I have been having problems with my Zentyal system (running virtualized under Xen) not keeping accurate time.  I finally solved the problem.  While it is not a Zentyal problem, some people might run into this in the future.  Basically NTP requires a stable clock source to keep time adjusted correctly.  Because virtual machines can't guarantee  interrupt service the ntp daemon refuses to update from what it sees as a wildly changing clock.  The following lines at the top of the /etc/ntp.conf file fix this:

tinker panic 0 dispersion 1.000 

and comment out the local clock too

#fudge stratum 13

With this setting the virtual machine will keep accurate time as long as it can reach the time server. It would be recommended to setup a timeserver on the local network and point your machines to it.  In my case pointing to the Dom0 machine (Xen)  works.

Hope this helps

As the subject suggests,  I have run across a bug that for my purposes makes the Zentyal version of asterisk a non starter.  Has anyone had any experience using a plain vanilla copy of asterisk with the Zentyal LDAP tree? 

Installation and Upgrades / Asterisk Voicemail oddity
« on: February 21, 2011, 07:16:53 am »
Here is the details,  when I call an extension and leave voicemail everything works as expected.  When I dial the main voicemail extension to retrieve voicemail the asterisk instance crashes on hangup.  It doesn't matter if I actually punch in credentials or just hang up.  Also, waiting for a minute before hanging up makes no difference. 

System info

Core version 2.0.15
all modules and options loaded

What might make it unique :
VM under Xen 4.0.1
2 g Ram
4 pinned CPU's

The system has 24g ram as a whole and 16 cores in two dies

Everything is 64bit AMD

I should mention also that there is a warning on the asterisk cli

53:09] ERROR[3970]: res_config_ldap.c:1317 update_ldap: Couldn't modify dn:uid=dhoff,ou=Users,dc=Zentyal,dc=gltconline,dc=com because Naming violation

This is not my first rodeo with Asterisk and still this one is confusing to me .  When using sip debug mode it really doesn't throw meaningful errors just crashes.

Installation and Upgrades / Hardware VOIP phones
« on: February 19, 2011, 06:44:32 am »
Folks, I have searched the archives and can't find anything that comes close to answering this so here I go.   I have about 20 Cisco VOIP phones that I will be setting up in Asterisk in the next few weeks.  IN plain vanilla Asterisk this is a breeze.  Now enter the twist that has me scratching my head.  Each SIP client should be authenticated via password.  Zentyal has chosen to use end-user passwords.  Phones like Cisco 79XX use XML configuration files to set themselves up.  The password for authentication therefore gets put in an XML file for the phone as a standard practice.  When the user changes their domain password,  how do I get that info back around to the phone?

I am the IT manager for my company and have chosen Zentyal as my server/gateway of choice because I need a straight forward setup if I ever happen to have an accident.  It would be nice to keep everything together under one GUI if I can.  Can anyone give me a hint?


Update: Feb20 18:42 EST

On further digging around it is looking like the solution is to modify the res_ldap.conf
   md5secret = eboxRealmPassword
  md5secret = SomeOtherPassword

and append SomeOtherPassword =  SomeFixedPassword to each users LDAP record.

More on this as I experiment with it.  Anyone with thoughts on the matter feel free to jump in.
