been using SME/Koozali at various sites since version 4. It’s been very solid, but as many will know is lagging seriously at the moment, especially where Windows 10/Samba4/Centos7 support is concerned.
Consequently, I’m looking at options including Nethserver
I have questions about whether I’d encounter migration issues. Here’s the system configuration of the largest candidate for migration:
- 2xSME Server 9.2 with minimal add-ons (admin, out-of-office, easily removed)
- Virtualised, running on Proxmox
- 14Tib filesystem and 7TiB filesystem iSCSI mounted exported by separate storage server
- One email domain, about 60 users
- No hosted websites
- Server-only with separate perimeter firewalls etc.
The iSCSI mount of /home/e-smith/files means that it is easy to move the large f/s to another virtual or physical SME-server machine in the event of hardware failure or compromise.
However, as I understand it the ‘ibay’ equivalent paths are all different and revised in Nethserver.
Unmounting the f/s, there’s only a minimal vm image (30MB or so) to backup and restore to Nethserver – but how would I remount the iSCSI export? Changed paths? Permissions?
A 21TiB backup and restore could cause interesting issues I suspect using the migration tool? (Like, days of downtime).
I should add as this is commercial-use area, we’ll be happy to pay for support if the move is chosen and feasible…!
Any comments or suggestions? Thanks!
