Installation and Upgrades / Re: Outlook and Zentyal

Yes it does.

2003, 2007 and 2010 are working in 3.5 - 2013 does mostly but not supported yet - maybe in 4.0?

I can't get autodiscovery working yet but manual setup works, see here:

I am still having problems with Outlook not showing new emails but that might be my fault!

I *think*, and I am struggling a little with all this, that you can tell the iPad or Android that it is an 'Exchange' account and, if you have ActiveSync running, it should 'just work'

Seems to (between crashes) for me.

Thanks all, I now have it installed and working

I used an internal .lan in the end because our external domain name is very long (23 letters) and we have over 30 domains because we run a lot of publications so I can keep them all separate and not have to worry if one leaves the fold in the future.

Yes Robb, dns caught me out at first - ty



Installation and Upgrades / Outlook Auto Configuration

This *almost* works

Make a SRV record in your DNS   1H IN SRV   0 0 443

Now when you open an unconfigured outlook it just needs your Name, email address and password then it auto configures itself.

It is very close but not quite there, no doubt someone smarter than I am can explain what is needed to make it perfect?

If the server asks you for your username password when you try to connect are you just typing your username?

It might be worth trying yourdomain\username

eg mycompany\simon  or even myconpany.local\simon

Thank you Ian,

Just so I can be 100% clear do you mean that

"you use your FQDN which has the extension .be"

or are you suggesting that I use

Sorry if this seems silly to you, I am just trying to get it right before I commit!


Installation and Upgrades / FQDN or .lan
« on: August 22, 2014, 09:50:20 am »
Hello All,

I am trying to migrate a 2003 Domain to Zentyal but the current internal domain is thecompany.local so I need to move to a new domain.

Should I make the domain thecompany.lan or (their FQDN) ?

(Ouch! 25 profiles to migrate - thank goodness for Windows Easy Transfer)

I had not got the Exchange Proxy settings correct but now they are it is synced perfectly

See this page


I am wondering if it is a problem related to Contacts?

Emails and calendars seem to be synced OK but the contacts are not.

Searching the error seems to bring up Address Book related issues in Exchange forums...

Hello bjones, I am getting exactly the same error on 3.5

Let's see if a bump helps get this thread noticed.

FWIW mine is on a VERY minimal .pst that has only just been created and has 6 emails in, all 1 line tests.


PS - The certificate error - i seem to remember having success by viewing the certificate then exporting it then opening it from the saved file then importing it - YMMV HTH

I have had the exact same problem in 3.3, 3.4 and now 3.5

Different hardware, hypervisor and clients - same deal.

Inbox works the first time then a crash then no more.


Anyone seen the below before?

"Cannot open your default e-mail folders. You must connect to Microsoft Exchange with the current profile before you can syncronize your folders with your Outlook data file (.ost)."

I made a new Zentyal 3.4, joined a Win7 to the domain and setup Outlook.  NameCheck worked OK but when I open OL I get that message.

Just wondering if anyone had seen it and could spot where I went wrong?


Installation and Upgrades / Re: Taking over an existing domain

Thank you for the reply Zei,

I am transferring from a Windows server so neither rsync or scp will work?

The last part of my problem still remains:

Is there a way to shut down the old server and not have to change all share names?

Do I rename the Zentyal server?

\\winserver to \\zentyal

Installation and Upgrades / Taking over an existing domain
« on: May 07, 2014, 10:35:08 am »
So, I am replacing an old Win 2003 SP2 File Server and DC

I setup Zentyal
Join the domain as an Additional Controller
Take over the FSMO roles
Make a new share
Copy the files over to the new share on Zentyal (how best to copy 400GB?)

Is there a way to shut down the old server and not have to change all share names? 

\\winserver to \\zentyal
