after a crazy time at the end of 2023 I now had time to play a little with NS 8.
The new concept is, compared to NS 7, something to get used to it. I must admit i miss cockpit…
I replaced my server in 10/2023 for a bigger one. I now have room for more VM´s I run here.
Speccs are now 10-core AMD epyc, 128 GB RAM, 4 TB Raid 10 Server SSD´s.
My hypervisor is a MS Server 2019 Std. On the Hypervisor I run OPNSense, a MS AD DC and file server, one application server for our ERP System. DNS gets provided by the DC, DHCP by OPNSense.
I have set up a ns8 machine with 2 cores, 16 GB RAM and 1 TB VHD. Foundation is Debian 12.
LDAP local provider ( I want to keep it seperated from my AD), mail, nextcloud, SOGO, IMAPSync
The hostnames are all set (nextcloud.example. com, mail.example.com, sogo.example.com). Though no LE certificates installed. In the AD DNS i have made the entrys for pointing internally to the ns8 IP-Adress. Its just a first test.
So far everything works flawless. SOGO, imapsync, mail. Nextcloud is a different story. Some apps like calendar cannot get installed because NC says: “This app makes the whole instance unstable”.
I dont know what to make of that.
But anyway. For this stage the work of the devs is pretty impressiv.
I play some more, maybe use for testing the MS 2019 AD DC as a local provider to see how it works.
Have a good time.
