HI, I've tried a few times to give a summary of the issues I've found in the installer as it did not in fact work "out of the box". I've had to do a number of things as I've already indicated. Things that didn't work out of the box were:
allowing to proceed if a drive is checked (gave detailed description) if you happen to look into the configuration of change default options (or change them back which I did) and then "check off" the drive.
Network name resolution on internal lan. (A combination of confusion wizard NIC options which should be tweaked).
When creating a domain the system deletes the sssd.conf file causing the web interface to be unable to initialize passwords on newly created domain admin profiles.
The last one definitely did not work out of the box. The web interface did indicate the required steps but could not set passwords (got misleading error 404 in a popup dialog) because of the sssd.conf was needed for the service upon which the set/change password dialog depends. I gave my solution to the problem above which was easy to do IF you figure it out. (which most people probably won't)
as for what I want to do with my DC, I simply wanted a DC with full AD and the ability to save the shares (and perhaps profiles in their entirety), to an external NAS because it is already setup and as over 4 TB of space.
I did notice the netcloud link in the dashboard
In this link:
"External Storage Support (search it into the owncloud app store) by which you can mount SMB/CIFS shared folder using any valid credentials.".
Problem is I cannot see the option in the Software centre. Is that because it's not ready for Nethserver 7 RC3? Would be nice to have this. But I saw answers in my last posting that will serve. Would be nice if there was a more user friendly gui for this. as I'm sure the community users would REALLY appreciate it.
