first of all: You and the staff do a really good work !!! There is
nothing I have to criticized on technical site !!!
Nethserver 6.5-6.8 are really reliable, also update procedures. The
solution is expendable and so on. In Germany we say "Eier legende
Wollmilchsau" (a porc who gives you eggs and wool and milk) meaning
/all-in-one device suitable for every purpose*.*/ I used many years
sme-server and I am happy to found the future of it.
Many thanks for that !
My English knowledge is unfortunately very poor, so that my critical
words on my last mail was possible aggressive. But I was angry, YES,
after the 5th or 6th try to work based on the new Version7.0. Let me
tell you why:
- I added an non-official feature named "Dokuwiki" (many thanks to
Stephane de Labrusse!!!) and I am extremely satisfied with it. It's
running very well from the beginning. Any time later I found a
plugin that requested imagemagic. While the installation process
comes a error message, the version of epl should be wrong, and I
decided to change that (wrong) version. The result is, that
imagemagic st not running (not important) and my Nethserver
implementation is no longer updateable (that's important!). So I
hoped on the new version 7.0 and a useful upload way.
Without the possibility to upgrade I did the decision to build a new
Configuration an the Nethserver 7! I found no way to add users and
groups in a easy way like the previous version 6.8. Instead I have
to have a LDAP-Server or AD, and only ONE chance to determine how, a
later change where not possible. So I was pissed of!
- My job in the last (more than) 25 years was and is now to develop
products, sell them and communication solutions and develop
marketing concepts. In the beginning PC-based, since 15 years LAN-
and WAN solutions. So I'm sure to know what customers requests. As
sales men my most important issue to sell was tho get knowing the
base of decision on my "new" customers and as product manager I have
tho realize products and concepts for sales.
And from my opinion the most important issue, what they want, is a
Solution for affordable business continuity !!!
Unless all aspects (we cat discuss many hours, days months about
business continuity) there must be a upgradeable solution. That's
such a important request, that this feature has to be in every
planning of new versions on the minimum 3th position. No one will
accept a new product version, that is not upgradeable from the
A aspect of business continuity do I realize using Proxmox (3
nodes), so that my nethserver impemention is running on a VM (KVM)
with daily backup. I use 3 NAS and a separately firewall/router.
Nethserver is located in a DMZ.
I will switch into pension middle of the year, and after some months
vacancies with my (beautiful) wife I will consult SoHo or SME
offices for affordable business continuity, and Proxmox AND
Nethserver should part of my consulting. And additional important
for you: I don't plan to overtake the solution responsibility for my
clients. I want to help them to take the right decisions and show
them the way to administering self-employed and using and paying
Support from YOU ... !
So long ...
