Installation and Upgrades / GPO from Windows to Zentyal
« Last post by hanse on October 01, 2021, 03:32:00 pm »
Hi All

I am very new to the world of setting up Domains and I am busy with a lab project of how to convert from Windows AD to Zentyal. After a lot of work so far, I am fairly confident I am nearly there. I have managed to add Zentyal DC to the domain as an additional DC, the users and groups synced successfully and I ran the migrate script, after which all the roles were transferred to Zentyal.
But now I am confused with regards to the GPO part. What commands can I use to transfer all the GPOs from Windows Server to Zentyal in order to reach the end goal of switching off the Windows Server? Any help anyone can offer will be greatly appreciated!

Another question for down the line: if we add a second Zentyal server, should we then use the tutorial listed in the Zentyal docs under total migration ( for the GPOs to sync between the two Zentyal servers? Or will Zentyal to Zentyal be synced continuously and automatically?

Здравствуйте, есть сеть на несколько вланов, уже поделена между пользователями. Как правильно настроить контролер домена - что б его видели все вланы?

А сервер с Zentyal у Вас установлен прямо на железо или на гипервизор?
Интересно, можно ли будет потом, если что перенести AD с Zentyal на Windows server

Did you try to configure each module after the initial wizard instead of let the wizard configures the modules? I mean:

1. Download the script.
2. Install just the firewall module.
3. In the initial wizard, just configure the Network module.
4. Install the DNS and Domain Controller modules.
5. Configure the DNS module (including a record 'A' for the Windows Servers) and enable it.
6. Check out the connection between both servers.
7. Finally, configure the Domain Controller module and enable it.

Hope it helps.

Olá, o zentyal depois das versões 3 e 4 ficou muito instavel, não aconselho migrar para versão mais atual, até porque você precisa verificar se  a versão para qual você vai migrar possui os serviços que você usa, pois alguns foram removidos.

Nice tip, thanks
Наверное уже неактуально, но обновление на Зенчал 7.0 очень подробно расписано вот тут.
Если следовать описанным в документации рекомендациям, то все прекрасно обновляется.
Directory and Authentication / Domain with PDC+BDC at Zentyal
« Last post by juliocp1976 on September 29, 2021, 08:21:38 pm »
Hello I need a help if this functionality is possible in Zentyal

I'm migrating my W2008 server (PDC and BDC) to zentyal 6.2.9, I did the installation of the first PDC server ( it as its primary domain, after it says the installation of the BDC (192.168 .1.11) as secondary and I joined him as additional domain controller, and a third one as network FS with address (

However, the creation and administration of users, groups and sharing works according to each other, and that I do in a replication in the others (PDC and BDC) as it should be.

BUT my problem is in the situation that we had that my PDC needed to change an energy source, and in this period the BDC did not automatically take its place.

My doubt is this: Zentyal offers this functionality to automatically take over the BDC when the PDC fails. Have some different setup to make it work if you need it. If you have which files to configure.


Installation and Upgrades / Updating Zentyal 5.0 breaks my server
« Last post by geo77 on September 29, 2021, 04:41:28 am »
Hi all,
I have a 5.0.x installation of Zentyal. I try to update the server from the management console, but it breaks the installation. I see a lot of samba errors. Is there any kind of guide to move all of my data to the new version on a clean server?

Thanks for any advise.
Other modules / Network not working can only ping localhost (Solved)
« Last post by pksings on September 29, 2021, 01:06:15 am »
Hello everyone, I have exhausted my resources on this.  My mail VM, Zentyal, has stopped talking on the network. It is a VirtualBox VM using a Bridged adapter on the only NIC active in my Linux server.  It worked for months, and after updates hasn't worked since.

I cannot ping it, it cannot ping anything. Nic (eth0) shows up, has link. It is an Intel I211-AT chipset built into my motherboard. Working fine in the base os, Linux.
 5.10.0-1045-oem kernel which I am using to get accurate CPU temps, I have also tried 5.4.0-88-generic which does not provide them.  Does not work with either of them.  All the services are running according to the Admin screen, it seems like it's fine. But it isn't.
No changes have been made other than updates for about 3 months.

Any help is very much appreciated.
