Installation and Upgrades / Re: Odd issue from updating 6.2 to 7

Hi killmasta93,

your screenshot is showing only disk scan. I'm I right thinking you don't get to the graphical login page?

If you are stuck on the cli login try Alt+F7 and that should take you to graphical console.


I installed Zentyal few times now, I've successfully managed to keep one installation as a small domain server. I'm really pleased with Zentyal and would like to congratulate people behind the project.

However, I don't get why you stick with Ubuntu.. Zentyal on top of Ubuntu is easy but it causes confusion.
As seen many times on this forum, people get confused when they can't find and configuration they found on the Internet doesn't work.

Have you considered moving to Debian and maybe replacing mysql with mariadb in next Zentyal release?

Hi everyone,

so I had (needed) to install another Zentyal 7 from scratch. Started with installing Ubuntu 20.04 Server and then followed the .sh script from

All was well to where the script attempts to install suricata repo. This has already been reported number of times, where the repo can't be added by the script due to incorrect/lack of signature.

My question here is, could we change the script to include suricata PPA installation as per:

After the cli installation finished I wen't to the admin page and continued with the configuration.

Installer hang on 53% with "saving network module" but because I've seen it previously I just let it run (long enough to finish a cup of tea). Then pointed the browser to the new IP and I was "again" welcomed with Configuration Wizard. I skipped it completely and when the website reloaded all was working fine.

This is a VM hosted on proxmox so the IP change during installation isn't much of a problem, plus I already knew this will happen.
I've managed to connect this server as an additional domain controller. All went smooth, with AD syncing without any problems.

Second question in this place relates to DNS... I see no DNS sync between dc01 and the new machine. Does this mean I have to manually copy DNS entries if I want some resilience or is there a way to make it automatic?


zs webadmin restart

update if you have any outdated modules and it should go way


you are trying to install additional machine on a network. The error clearly stated that the DNS entry for pdc.peta.lan does not exist. So you have to either change your network config and point DNS to your DC or use IP rather an internal domain name.

Just a quick question if anyone tried upgrading Zentyal 7.0.5 on Ubuntu 20.04 to 22.04.1 LTS with do-release-upgrade yet?

to me it looks like you don't have DNS configured in your DHCP (for your clients). There are few things you can do:
1. make sure your DHCP advertisment includes and points at the right server (your Zentyal instance)
2. manually add DNS address to the network configuration of your Windows client
3. add your server IP and the domain name to c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts (on your client machine)

either of the above should resolve your issue.

Hi Yuko,

You've asked this question before, look at the answer...,35464.0.html

Nextcloud comes with basic Collabora configuration. Search online for installation and use cases.

Hi Yuko,

I suspect you need something different than Zentyal. Zentyal is a server operating system that manages users, shares, etc.. For interactive collaboration you could use Nextcloud and have Zentyal as an Active Domain controller for user management and other stuff.

That's funny (not) that I had problems with DBagent expiry only on expired system login. After reading this thread it started to happen regularly just like with everyone else.  :-\
Let see what's the workaround worth.

I also get this error every now and again. I noticed that it happens if I leave the Web Admin console open and let it expiry (overnight). Next morning I have to run 'zs webadmin restart' over ssh to get it sorted.

So remember to always logout ;)

shot in the dark but is this Zentayl installed on Ubuntu? Check free space on the root partition... Clear logs and/or if this is a VM expand drive (LVM root partition)

Had similar problem adding GP policy, access denied etc. turned out it was caused by no space on the hard drive.


Hi Turbotim,

First of all I wonder if you have managed to sort this issue out. I think I'm experiencing similar problem.

Did you have an IP address for each and every VLAN registered in the Zentyal network configuration?

My internal VLANs can't talk to either the Internet or the 'external network' with packets being dropped by Zentyal.

Please can someone explain how the Webadmin network configuration controls the systems network?
Where is the web-based configuration for network and gateways stored?

If I have two gateways installed, making either of them default does NOT change the ip r on the console?

Hi everyone,

I'm still having a difficulty setting up the network rules correctly. My setup looks like this:

Code: [Select]     (OLD domain)            -                             -  via eth0 - Zentyal DC - eth1 (external network) via gateway to the Internet    network backbone        -

The DC itself is happy and knows where things are, I can ping and access both sides.
If I have a device in the domain, it seams to be working fine, I can reach out to the Internet and go to other network.

However, devices from the old domain and network backbone can't reach the Internet. They get DNS responce from the DC but bounce of the firewall or the response is TTL exceded on the eth1.

I created objects for the "old domain" and the backbone, added their relevant IP. I have multigateway rules for interfaces (eth0, eth1) source and destination but still devices from the can't reach the Internet.

Can someone explain how do I allow traffic from network that is NOT directly connected to Zenytal (reaching the eth0 via network switch) to connect to the internet (on eth1).
