Hello, I installed NSb2 on a virtual machine in order to evaluate it for further use as production server (SME and replacement for a zentyal server).
I encountered the following issues:
After Installing the “fileserver” package I was able to create a file share, but
- I could not set access-permissions for users or groups (at least I didn’t find the configuration menu)
- I could not configure samba as PDC. Obviously in versions 6.x there was a menu “Windows network” where exactly this feature could be activated
useres and groups:
I first installed the LDAP-Package and I was able to set up users and groups, still with the same problem that I was not able to define a shared folder to a group.
Then I removed LDAP and installed “nethserver-dc”. It was not possible to create users or groups anymore! There was an error message saying: “user already exists” (just pressing the button, not giving a name for a user).
At a first glance it was not obvious to me that both packages nethserver-directory (ldap) and nethserver-dc can not be installed in parallel (at least I think so because it was not possible - when I tried it there were some error messages). It would be nice to give this information in the software-center panel.
For me it’s important to
- use Nethserver as a Primary Domain controller and to activate this right from the user interface
- define different folders an give or forbid acces for some users and groups.
As Nethserver includes all of the features that we are going to use, this product looks very promising for us. With a well designed but simple interface configuration becomes much easier, still there is enough documentation to understand how the server is built.
Thanks a lot in advance for your answer.
