How's going with NethServer 8?

Hey guys, i see that Nethserve rhas reached Public Beta, NS8 project | Trello
anyone tested it out.
@giacomo how has the prodcution run with the Nethserver in your offices been so far.

I am curious, will the Enteprise Telephony service available with Nethserver be available in NS8 soon, and if Yes, will it support multiple PBX instances on the same server, with some form of routing with same, or even multiple IP address for SIP trunks the related polcies.

In the mornign Ejabberd was in progress, now i see its been completed, cool.

TIme to be testing again.

Wait! The beta is still not out, in the board you see all tasks that should be implemented to reach the beta :slight_smile:
Of course we are going to announce it when it’s done.

Yes, the PBX will be available on NS8. For the first release probable we are going to support only one PBX per node, but we have plans to add the support of multiple instances on the same node.

It’s going very well, even the migration worked without pain.
For now, we faced a bug only during Nextcloud latest upgrade but we are working on it. :wink:

I am curious also, how would one go about Implementing this: Crivaledaz/Mattermost-LDAP: This module provides an external LDAP authentication in Mattermost for the Team Edition (free). (

Into the new Mattermost Module available in NS8

Mattermost ldap, coinsidering the instalaltion process are different and this one is container based

It could be done (I’ve tested it) but it’s hard to maintain in the core since is not officially supported by Mattermost and could break anytime.
Still, if someone want to contribute as a module, I have no problem to help the integration :slight_smile:

Maybe we could start with a complete NOOB tutorial for building a NS8 module.

would help grow the commuity.

you could also build is as a community module, just leave it outside of the core functions, for whoever needs to make use of it,

Am also curious, there was talk of creating a module migration tool, that would convert all community modules from NS7 to NS8, is this really feasible to be done, woulc it be done, or all modules have to be re-done one by one from scratch.


interestingly Nextcloud already have v 26 BEta out.

is it upcoming soon, and or are those tasks for public beta all done.

Maybe this is an option?

Or even better to the ‘outside’ Twitter and FB world (just an example):

And it would also help if the regular updates could be published to Twitter and FB (Updates for NethServer 7)

And indeed, looking at the existing Twitter account for Netherver, it seems dead (last post 2019)

Anything we, as community, can do to get things going again?

Give me some time to kick off an important project so I can propose a plan for this

new documentation page


Just a thought here. Would it be fair to say that Nethserver is a name that no longer covers the load? No longer do we have we have a ‘old school’ server, but actually a SaaS platform providing all kinds of services and being extendible, distributed and HA?

So my thought is if we should we reach back to old school descriptions for a ‘stand alone’ server which was perfectly valid a while ago, but today maybe the naming convention and positioning should be reconsidered?

2 cents…

From the docs:

Is there a preference among these? Or is any of them as good as the others?

And is it, or will it be, possible to migrate from OpenLDAP to AD as an accounts provider?

Let’s call it NethService :laughing:

I personally prefer CentOS stream for development and Rocky Linux for production

No, I think it’s not possible due to different and incompatible password encryption schemes. But I might be wrong…

Any roadmap available?
Any matrix of NS7 service vs NS8 service and status of implementation?

The roadmap link is still Trello

It is frequently updated

I don’t know of such comparative document now but for the first stable release I expect the admin manual contains it.

don’t like centos stream but I could be wrong

alma linux should be fine
