I have made separate root / admin / user dashboards !
everything that needed to be done to was changed inside the /usr/share/nethesis folder !
I believe that this is a much better way than the recent dashboard, the new situation is:
Login as root / rootpassword ( Complete dashboard, all options available )
Login as admin /adminpassword ( This dashboard contains less functions, (management + extra)
Login as user / userpassword ( Simple dashboard, Server Status, Change User Password )
Of course i would like to share this with the community, if there is some interests ?
For example i can post al changes to be made, and explain how to (easy) customize the admin Dashboard.
Where should i post it ?
For sure a lot more is possible and furter development from this point can make NethServer Asome!
I build servers for my customers (companies), already for more than 15 years using SME Server, these servers are mostly dedicated servers at customers location. I started shortly using NethServer as replacement and sell this as a Cloud Server, hosted in a Dutch Datacenter on a Professional QEMU network.
With the root/admin/user dashboard setup i made, NethServer is a perfect product, my customers can manage only what they need to manage using their admin (manager) login.
Still.... When i update everyting will be removed and set to defaults.
Can you tell me, is it possible to prevent this from happening ?
For example overwrite (templating ?) the /usr/share/nethesis folder ?
For now it is a 'custom mod' to all my servers, i have to 'custom mod' each time
when i installed new updates....
It could be a new module for the software manager so it will be an option,
Or even better (When you al like it, and someone would double check for security),
my setup could be next NethServer 's default ?
Screenshots avialable if needed, working on demo server ....
