Me and @giacomo have just baked the NethServer 7 alpha2 ISO.

https://sourceforge.net/projects/nethserver/files/nethserver-7.2.1511-alpha2-x86_64.iso/download

Who wants to have a test drive before the official announcement?

v7-alpha2 release notes are published here:

http://docs.nethserver.org/en/v7a/release_notes.html

@alefattorini does it work for you?

Yeah, I like such sneak peek only for the NethServer Tribe! :dancers:
I’m finishing to put together the official announcement for media, blog, etc…

Who broke sourceforge? I’m barely seeing 100 KB/s. :frowning:

What to expect from alpha2?
This release was aimed at replicating all the functionality of 6.7, closely mimicking the behaviour of all features, on a CentOS 7 base.
So I expect that alpha2 will behave well, hopefully a bit better of 6.7 because of the newer base system. And because we smoothed some edges while adapting configurations. As an example, in 6.7, the Services panel reported lsm as stopped with a red color when no multiwan providers were configured, while in 7a2 it’s correctly reported in black color (thanks to systemd).
Also, while adapting configuration templates to newer software in 7 (i.e. http, ssh, etc), we reverted to CentOS defaults for as many variables as possibile. So v7a2 behaviour should be compared to centos 7 more easily.

And then it stalls at around 120/150MB. :cry:

Cheers.

I changed mirrors and got it down.

Whew, lot’s of updates.

Hard coding dns to google… was blocked at my gateway… could be a stumbling block… why not take dns from dhcp on initial install? … idk, shrug.

edit; I installed oC module without installing the file server module so in this case the user profile assumes the file server is installed, therefore Shared Folders (Samba) is preselected though it doesn’t exist.

oC works fine.

ownCloud

Try to access/edit files using ownCloud web interface
Configure a client on a desktop machine and configure the client, make sure files are in sync

both done and working…

… thought… would it be easier on new users to use the server ip instead of hostname/domain in the link on the Application page in the gui? Because the default server name and domain sure isn’t going to work in any browser but a local one, and there is no local one.
Or if there was a check for anything other than the default domain, then we could use that instead.

Alphabetical ordering aside, I think Dashboard should be the top link on the left panel.

I’ve been meaning to ask, what’s with the 90 second stop job delay on shutdown?

    Configuration backup

Configure a new system with additional modules and execute the configuration backup. Try to restore the backup into another system.

Installed Backup, ownCloud and Email, setup backup pointing to a cifs client, setup user, setup oC client, verified sync, wiped, reinstalled NS7a2, followed the doc
http://docs.nethserver.org/en/latest/backup.html#disaster-recovery
initiated Restore Backup from gui Backup (configuration), received error as follows;

2016-02-12 17:29:58 - START - Restore config started
2016-02-12 17:30:04 - STEP - pre-restore-config done
2016-02-12 17:30:04 - STEP - restore-config-execute done
2016-02-12 17:35:41 - ERROR - Event post-restore-config failed - 256

Note; the config backup appears successful, from a clean install, all the previous settings were returned, even the backup email notification settings I left default when I setup backup data for the restoration source, once the oC desktop client was restarted, after entering the original user password it resynced fine.

@giacomo, do you think we can push SOGo3 into ns7 updates repository?

Have you noticed the Dashboard is already linked to the NethServer logo?

I’ve noticed it too. Probably an unit does not shut down correctly. Will be investigated.

I agree, we should fix our kickstart files, (same on unattended):

What do you think @giacomo?

As far as I know, the nameserver option in the kickstart will write the DNS address inside system configuration files.
These files are than used for NameServers property under the dns key.

Changing this behavior it’s not straightforward :frowning:

Yes, I will do later today or tomorrow.
In the meanwhile, @Mepata you can use testing repository:

yum --enablerepo=nethserver-testing update

Please, can you post the relevant part of /var/log/messages?

The link on the application page should be based on the same address (or hostname) you use for accessing the server-manager. If not, it should be considered a bug.
Reading the code, ownCloude should be already fine: https://github.com/NethServer/nethserver-owncloud/blob/master/root/usr/share/nethesis/NethServer/Module/Dashboard/Applications/ownCloud.php
