I am completely new to Nethserver.
I am trying to set up a small server as an AD PDC and file server that supports Ubuntu and Windows clients. Users should be able to log in on the client machines and get home directories mounted from the server (there are only four client machines). This seems like it should not be that hard, but I just cannot seem to get it to work with previous attempts with systems other than Nethserver.
I was successful with Zentyal for a while. I set up several VMs as test clients and they worked. Then they stopped working. I still do not know if some update destroyed my configuration or if I somehow did something to change them but none work now and I cannot create a working one from my notes I was always fighting with Zentyal and am looking for other alternatives.
From what I understand of Nethserver, I need to install the “nethserver-dc” module/package. I need a spare IP for the Samba/DC container. So far so good? I usually use Ubuntu, so CentOS/RHEL/Nethserver is just different enough to trip me up.
The network in question already has a separate DHCP/DNS router.
Is there anyone who has set up clients against Nethserver that mount the users’ home directories from the server? I have not found much on this forum, but perhaps I am not searching for the right things!
I found some documentation on how to set up Ubuntu clients against a FreeNAS server here:
This is what I used in the past and it sometimes works :-/
