Try out NethServer 7 alpha2 ISO!

OpenVPN was fixed

[root@mail log]# config setprop openvpn status disabled
[root@mail log]# signal-event nethserver-openvpn-update

Thanks to all guys!

What installation did you tried?
Using the interactive install, you must choose it from the web interface.
If you use the unattended one, keyboard is set to US and timezone to UTC (this behavior has not changed from 6.x).

Yes, it’s a known bug ( still unresolved.
I had no time to work on it.
Sorry @Nas but your pull request doesn’t do the job: if you set the openvpn status to disable the vpn port will be closed inside the firewall. The fix is a little bit more complex, I will keep you updated! :smile:

Edit: /etc/httpd/conf.d/awstats.conf, replace line 29:

Require local


Require all granted

Then restart the httpd server: systemctl restart httpd

If you have more issues on this, open a new topic :wink:

Right, there is no support from EPEL right now (see:
Have you tried the package you’ve found?

Can you please share? Surely from next week Davide and me will be back almost full time on NS 7, and we will be able to fix quickly :wink:

Hi Giacomo,

Thank you!
I will try both and I will share to the Community.


It was late night, so i have not checked network service after i have configured OpenVPN.

In order to have accessibility to OpenVPN, next steps should be done:

config set openvpn@host-to-net service UDPPort 1194 access public status enabled
signal-event firewall-adjust

I’m very interested, would you mind to follow up this discussion with your tests?

I brought this vm up that I was using with samba, mail, roundcube and owncloud and realized that this page is a little shy of the installed modules.

Now I can’t update the base install I have.

Can you please post the output of:

My bad, sorry.
You should be able to do it, as soon as the mirrors are synched, otherwise before update install manually letsencrypt:

Weird, for example ownCloud is available to install though it is installed. I know I ran an update on this after installing those modules, these were installed through the software center.

No sweat, it updated now.

I just installed file server in the fresh base install and post reboot it shows backup and file server as installed so all is well in the software center now.


20 posts were split to a new topic: Can’t install NethServer 7 ISO on Hyper-V

same virtual machine config with 6.7 iso

It seems an Hyper-V problem, sorry but I can’t help: I carefully stay away from MS products :smiley:

Did you tried to create a virtual machine on virtual box on vmware player,
and then move it to the hyperv?

Did you tried adding the disk as ide instead of scsi?

@mabeleira, your suggestions are in my to do list! Thanks

It looks like a Hyper-V issue or misconfiguration. An expert like @Hunv may help here

Simple Answer:
Generation 2 is not Supported for CentOS 6.x, Nethserver 6.x is based on.

Generation 2 machines have a much thinner Hardwarelayer. Because of this, they removed the support of many legacy devices. You can read more details here:
Or more technical:

Is Nethserver 7.x based on CentOS7? If yes, regarding the MS-Docs it should work, if UEFI is activated and SecureBoot disabled.
