I have a problem with naming the Active Directory domain of an internal server.
you have some options to name your AD domain:
The domain you use publicly (e.g. example.com)This is not recommended because you get big problems (as Trump would say) with DNS.But: apart from that it will work perfectly in NethServer.
The domain you use publicly with a not-existing TLD (e.g. exmaple.local or exmaple.internal, ...)This was the recommended proceeding years ago, but is not recommended anymore (see links above for details).Problem in NethServer: every user is assigned the (totally useless) E-Mail address "email@example.com". And there is no way known to me to deactivate this.
A subdomain of the domain you use publicly. (e.g. ad.example.com)This is recommended by all publications I read.
But you got problems in NethServer:
So how to proceed?
Is there a chance to use the "mail" field of the AD user as the E-Mail address instead of the login with AD domain name as suffix? So option 2 und 3 may be considered?And is there a chance to rename the NetBIOS domain in option 3?
If this can't be done, I think I would go on with option 1 and try to go round the DNS problems...
This will be fixed soon! I'm working on it!
This will be possible in the near future, too!
Here there is a possible enhancement on the dnsmasq forwarding configuration, too!
BTW, great recap @uliversal!!
Wow, @davidep, that's great news! I don't want to hustle you, but can you give a rough timeline for this?
(And is there a way I can support you?)
A post was merged into an existing topic: E-Mail wrongly delivered to account given in "Accept unknown recipients"
Our roadmap is here:
I would deactivate it by default or you should be able to choose it during the new user creation
I prefer this solution and I would work on DNS issues workarounds, I see that @davidep is already working on that though. Good to know
A package is ready to test it! You can install the RPM from nethserver-testing repository:
yum --enablerepo=nethserver-testing update nethserver-mail-server-1.10.8-1.5.g8683219.ns7.noarch
It allows to safely (from the mail-server point of view) delete the primary domain record under 'Email > Domains' page. See also
