I dont speak spanish so I hope the google translate below helps.

I suspect that HP firmware is written to work with Fedora based linux distros and not with Debian ones like Ubuntu.  I had all sorts of errors with the onboard NIC using a HP ML10 Gen9 server.  I ended up changing the network cards for some cheap TP-LINK gigabit PCI Express cards and that solved the problems.  if you check the logs on the server you might find that its reporting errors.  Fedora based distros use a different Linux Kernal and I suspect that HP only support SUSE or Red Hat with their kit.  I couldnt get the onboard Raid controller to work with Zentyal either.  Hope this helps!

Sospecho que el firmware de HP está escrito para funcionar con distribuciones linux basadas en Fedora y no con Debian como Ubuntu. Tuve todo tipo de errores con la tarjeta de interfaz de a bordo utilizando un servidor HP ML10 Gen9. Terminé cambiando las tarjetas de red para algunas tarjetas PCI Express de bajo coste TP-LINK y eso solucionó los problemas. Si comprueba los registros en el servidor puede encontrar que sus errores de informes. Las distribuciones basadas en Fedora usan un Kernal de Linux diferente y sospecho que HP solo soporta SUSE o Red Hat con su kit. No pude conseguir el controlador Raid a bordo para trabajar con Zentyal tampoco. ¡Espero que esto ayude!

Thats good to know.  Ive had all sorts of problems integrating Ricoh printers with Zentyal 5 as the version of Samba has changed and the Ricoh's dont support it.  Not exactly the same issue i know but its always good to know where to look for these things :)

I'm not sure you can.  From what I understand, Zentyal acts as a gateway so each nic by default must be a separate.  you could try installing a 3rd nic and try to isolate that just for the asterisk machine, but it seems like trying to use a sledghammer to crack a walnut.  Honestly, I would run the asterisk setup on an actual PC separate from the zentyal server.  I have a similar setup and have an Elastix box plugged into the router along with the phone handsets via a separate switch.  Asterisk/FreePBX/Elastix will run on pretty much anything, so any old PC should do the trick. 

Thinking about it, the asterisk distro is probably Fedora based (I am assuming this as Elastix is based on CentOS) as opposed to Debian\Ubuntu and the different Linux Kernals can have unplanned conflicts with firmware as the drivers for both are based on different versions of the Kernal.  i had this issue running Zentyal on HP hardware as the firmware for their onboard nic was only meant to be used with Fedora based distros (Suse, CentOS & Red Hat)  :-\

Sorry that doesnt really help you solve the issue, but i dont know linux virtualisation well enough to know if this type of setup is going to cause you more trouble than you need to go to.  thinking about it logically, I would think you need to virtualise the zentyal installation as a separate machine so you can keep the 2 completely separate and assign NICS to both distros


I've noticed that a lot of the active directory accounts change the default home folder location for no apparent reason. I think is happening is that SAMBA is reforming the path to the FQDN path but i cant see why.

In this example, our server that is named GXSERVER and the domain is named GX. we set up a file share on the server called FILES and set permissions to Read and write for the share. I also created a security group called STAFF.

I created a user called BOB, made him a member of STAFF and set him up with a default path of...


...but after a few hours, I go back and check it and its changed to...


this causes the client workstations (Windows 7) to not understand the drive mapping and bob loses access to the file share on the server until I go in, change it back and get him to log off and back on.

I have this problem on several servers I have deployed using a variety of versions of the software.  I cant seem to find a reason for this change unless its something to do with the way SAMBA formulates/translates the path name.

Any ideas?

Im running version 4.2 on a HP Proliant ML10 gen9 in our office and im having a strange ethernet adapter outage occasionally on the ethernet adapter that is built in to the server.

Im running a 2nd ethernet adapter to connect to the office and that works fine.

Randomly, the syslog reports the following...
Code: [Select]

No amount of restarting the ethernet or networking service will bring it back to life and I have to do a reboot to get it to respond again.

i did an LSHW to see what version of the driver its running and got this...

Im assuming that the issue is to do with the driver/firmware for the onboard ethernet.  Any ideas?  Ill have a go at updating the driver from teh intel website but i cant see an obvious reason for this. 

My scenario...

I have multiple Zentyal 4.0 servers in different locations serving internet to our offices.  each server acts as a gateway so they have 2 NICs,  for incoming internet traffic and 1 for connecting to a switch in the office.  Nothing unusual about that so far.

The problem is that after a while (weeks or months and with no apparent regularity) a few of the servers lose access to the internet.  the only way to bring it back is to go to the server (in person) and force a change on the gateway by editing the settings and saving it.  after that, the office PCs get internet again.

I didn't set those older 4.0 servers up.  I've set up newer servers using 4.2 that dont have this problem.  I also upgraded one to 4.2 and that doesnt do it either.  The only obvious thing is that they older servers all report a problem with squid when you do any changes, but i dont think thats the cause of this as the proxy isnt active because the HA service doesnt work on the older servers.  I havent looked at the logs yet but I thought id throw this out there in case anyone has had anything similar.  it would save me a 60 mile round trip every time!

Anyone have anything simular? 

Installation and Upgrades / Server says no disk space but there is!

ok, long story short...

one of our servers had a power cut and ever since, its telling the users that they have no disk space on the file shares to save files.  they can open files and access the internet through the gateway fine, but its showing that the file share drives are full.

I checked the available disk space with df -h and here is the output

Code: [Select]
Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
udev            3.9G  4.0K  3.9G   1% /dev
tmpfs           799M  2.1M  797M   1% /run
/dev/dm-0       917G   53G  817G   7% /
none            4.0K     0  4.0K   0% /sys/fs/cgroup
none             50M     0   50M   0% /run/lock
none            3.9G   14M  3.9G   1% /run/shm
none            100M  4.0K  100M   1% /run/user
/dev/sda1       236M  235M     0 100% /boot

/dev/sda1 is nearly full.  ive seen elsewhere that there is a potential bug in the ubuntu installer that could cause this as well as a cure by resizing the partition, but im not sure thats the cause of my problem as I am trying to access the shares on /dev/dm-0 (where the share folders are under the samba folder), where there is a "rightous" amount of free space :D  im using 54GB up but i have over 800GB free (its a 1TB disk)

as an aside, I checked the partitions with fdisk -l thinking that there may be a reason for it, and the output is below

Code: [Select]

I/O size (minimum/optimal): 4096 bytes / 4096 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x00000000

Disk /dev/mapper/xxxxxxx--vg-swap_1 doesn't contain a valid partition table, am i right in thinking that the reason its saying its full is because /dev/sda1 is full?  Surely thats the linux partition on the disk and its size shouldnt effect the ability to access shares to clients on my network.   (Please correct me if im wrong.)

Anyway, there are posts on here already about the disk space problem when using the "erase all disk" option in the zentyal installer so I wont go into it here, but im concerned about the fdisk "vaild partition table" errors its throwing up.  My fear is that I will resize the sda1 partition but the partition table has been ganked by the power cut and I will be causing more problems than I solve.
