Installation and Upgrades / Re: A GUI For an eBox Machine?
« on: May 01, 2009, 05:13:24 pm »
Hi Sam!

Having a GUI can indeed be useful at some points, especially if you somehow configure your firewall or network interfaces in a way that prevents you from accessing the web interface.

That being said, eBox users can easily install a web interface just installing GNOME or KDE, so we don't see the need for eBox to offer a 'default' GUI. A HOWTO explaining how to do it for the least experienced users can be useful though.


Installation and Upgrades / Re: SSH login in as a ebox user

Hello, SSH login works, you just need to:

1. install the Samba module (yeah, this shouldn't be needed and we'll try to fix this)

2. in /etc/ebox/80samba.conf change:
Code: [Select]
login_shell = /bin/falseto
Code: [Select]
login_shell = /bin/bashonce this is done new users will have /bin/bash as shell. If you want old users to be able to log in, you will need
to edit the LDAP yourself, using an LDAP client and change the loginShell attribute to /bin/bash manually.

3. change the ubuntu PAM setup so it takes LDAP into account for authentication, you can have a look here:
It's basically adding:
Code: [Select]
account sufficient
to /etc/pam.d/common-account
Code: [Select]
auth    sufficient
to /etc/pam.d/common-auth. These lines should be the first one of the files. You probably want to add use_first_pass after the line which says in that file so it doesn't ask for the password twice.

Be careful while doing these changes, make sure you have a root terminal open while you do them because you might get locked out of your box if you mess up and you don't.

We'll try to do this more automatic in future versions :)

I am using ebox as a windows domain server, after I create the user account, is there a way I can send the user a link to change the password themself >:(

Unfortunately not as of now. It's in our roadmap though.

Installation and Upgrades / Re: Ebox 12.100 problems

First of all, I want to say the new dashboard is awesome.  I am having some problems, though.
Right now my eth0 (external) graphs jump between -5000000000B, -2500000000B, and 0B.  My eth1 (internal) graphs start at 0 and will sometimes spike to 93.13 GB and go back down to 0 for no apparent reason.  Transferring files seem to have no effect on the graphs.

Uhm, I think I had that kind of problems when the interfaces were down, are they active? do they have traffic? I'll have a look at it in the next days and I'll ask you for more information if I can't reproduce it.

Yeah, it kind of pissed me of a bit too when I discovered it.

I posted this on my blog:
