Installation and Upgrades / mail error 554
« on: September 25, 2010, 05:06:18 pm »
Version: Zentyal 2.0
Function: mail gateway for internal home usage (5 pc's and 3 laptops)
Zentyal Module Versions: all modules are up to date

I am trying to get internal mail working, however, i keep getting a 554 error, smtp relay not allowed.

in the Objects menu, i added a new object called Internal Network
then  i added IP as a member.

then i added Internal Network to the relay policy under the Mail menu.

however.. for the life of god.. i can still not send mail through other internal members!

what have i done wrong?
i have gone through the forums, and found that many others have mail issues also, but those are mostly related to the username/password error, which i have not! (using the correct names / passwords)

also, what is the advantage of using the Zafara mail module over the "internal" module?
which one should i use?

Installation and Upgrades / modules for the user corner
« on: September 25, 2010, 04:05:35 pm »
personally, what i would like to see, is more usage of the usercorner.
make it work like some sort of intranet, with access to a wiki, a forum, a news page, you name it!

i was wondering if this could be done by writing modules? and how would one start out?
how would this be integrated into the ldap system? to create a SSO (single sign on)
then, Zentyal would be truely a powerfull SBS system!

does anyone has any idea's about this?

yes, this kind of module may be verry usefull for small businesses, they would simply put thin clients on their desks, and boot off the server, it lowers the costs of maintaining their IT systems.

but this would only work for new company's, or company's that renew their current pc's..

to allow current systems to be included, we would more so need a way to make use of the fat client principle..

i am interested in the latter, how to we make full blown pc's work as one?
i allready mentioned about sharing the home directory, and have the ebox desktop client use it as their own, this comes verry close to the roaming profiles principles, many SBS systems use these days..

Installation and Upgrades / Re: Simple Logon Script Problem

its simple batch :)

and yes, you can do more stuff with that..
simply search for logon scripts using batch commands,
there goes a whole new world open to you :)

are you using Zentyal for home use, or small office?
for home use, batch files do the job rather well, for office use you might look into kixx
its a much easier language to write logonscripts with.

there's a whole bunch of batch commands you might find usefull ;)

How do you do that?

I thought Zentyal only looks for logon.bat.

hmz yes, i see no way to change that through the interface (thats a rather bad situation)
if you know how to work with a terminal, you can do the following,

sudo nano /etc/samba/smb.conf

then look for the line called logon script =

and change it to logon script = logon.vbs

however, i just realised maybe samba doesnt support vbs scripts..
so you can edit your logon.bat to something like this:

@echo off
rem match the server time
net time \\ADAM /set /yes <-- uses your server as the time server, it keeps all computers in your network synced
net use H: \\ADAM\%USERNAME% <-- i think this defaults to the homes share, so you shouldn't really need it
net use P: \\ADAM\Public <-- the share you're trying to set with the vbs file
net use S: \\ADAM\othershare <-- coulsd be used for your mp3 collection? :P
net use T: \\ADAM\tmp <-- a temporary directory on your server, you shouldn't really need it also

why do you want to use a vbs file for a simple share setting anyway?

in case you really really need the vbs file.. you should use
start \\ADAM\samba\netlogon\logon.vbs in your logon.bat file

Installation and Upgrades / Re: About quota
« on: September 25, 2010, 01:26:27 pm »
have you correctly enabled quota?

the meaning of quota is to limit the amount of space a user can have for his/her files.

There are 2 options throughout the interface as i can see so far..
1: go to users, then edit user, you have a quota option under PDC/File sharing account
2: go to File Sharing, on the first page you will directly see a quota setting. make sure its not set to disabled. (i think this is whats causing your quota settings to reset to 0?)

i am not sure which one takes precedence, but i have set the one in the File Sharing tab to 10000MB
and the one under users to 1000MB, and it does not reset to 0

/var/lib/ebox/conf/remoteservices/soap-loc.conf is either missing, or you have no permission to read it (the Zentyal server, that is)

tryon the terminal of your Zentyal server: ls -l /var/lib/ebox/conf/remoteservices/soap-loc.conf
what does it show?

if it doesnt exist, it should give you an error, if it does exit, it should show you who is the owner of the file.
once we got that figured out, we can take further steps to solve your issue

Installation and Upgrades / Re: 2.0.2 Update Issues
« on: September 25, 2010, 01:02:48 pm »
strangely enough i had that too, however, in my case, a reboot fixed that?
i'm using a vanilla box, so it only runs the ebox platform.. maybe its worth a try?

why dont you call on logon.vbs directly?
simply set the script to logon.vbs instead of logon.bat ?

that should work!

on the file sharing section, under pdc, check that quota is set to enabled.
if you set it to disabled, quota shows as 0 in the shares tab!

after that, you should be able to set the quota for each user i believe.

Installation and Upgrades / Re: Users Change Password
« on: September 22, 2010, 05:36:28 pm »
yes, in the usercorner you cn set the port nummer, default is 8888 i believe,
so then you would give your users the following url:

they get presented a login box, from which they can configure, amonst other things, their password.

thats some good news! can you tel more about it?
whats the ETA of release?
and is it NFS based?

i'm verry curious, i think with a modified ubuntu that is ebox ready, this system could easily replace windows NT environments!

Hello fellow Zenty's

I recently came across this great website on my search to replace a windows NT server, preferably with something cheaper, and easily configurable.

So, i was searching, and i found Zentyal.
I tried it, and loved it!

i enbled PDC, roaming profiles, the whole bunch.. and it works! its so easy to configure, you'd almost think there's a hidden suprise waiting ;)

Anyway, i was wondering if something like roaming profiles could be done with linux.
I came across NFS, which has the advantage that its a mounted share, and writing reading would go on the fly.
the disadvantage however, is that it needs to be mounted, and if its not available, users wont have a home dir?

So, beeing a windows NT admin myself, i figured.. what if we would create some scripts, to would synchronise a local home directory, with a remote share?
That way, if a user logs on, he gets the most up-to-date profile, but when network problems accur, the user would use the local (cached, if you wish) home dir?

i found but it seems a bit out of date, and i havent found out yet if its possible using the administration pages?
