NethServer as replacement for my AD/Domain services?

I’m looking for a MS replacement for my AD/Domain services + Exchange services.

It appears to me that nethserver is completely free with the choice to pay for support. However the one thing I’m not sure of, is that when I install nethserver completely free, will I be able to keep it up to date to the latest version without a complete wipe and reinstall?


Hi Joe, welcome here!
Take a look at those links and let me know your doubts

Yes, you get fresh rpms from upstream repositories (CentOS, EPEL) and NS ones. No reinstall required.

And the linked #faq

AFAIK, You will have to reinstall only when change the major version:

If you update form Nethserver NG 6.7 to Nethserver NG 6.8 then Nethserver NG 6.9 you haven’t to reinstall
If you update from Nethserver NG 6.9 to Nethserver NG 7.4 you have to reinstall
