I decided to start this topic because of some facts that have happened in the last few months:
- The decision made by Inverse regarding SOGo.
- The decision made by Nethesis to use WebTop as the main email groupware app on NS 7.
- Samba4 Active Directory on NS 7.
There are a lot of discussions here about WebTop and NS but I think is better to split them in two main directions, based on how the users are authenticated:
- by OpenLDAP
- by Samba AD:
Thus, we will have two distinct approaches, each with its peculiarities, at least during the first configuration.
Maybe I'm wrong and there is no reason to do this split.
Anyway, in this topic I will address the following situation: WebTop with Samba AD running locally.
This situation is pretty common for SOHO environment, when we have a single dedicated server (bare metal server).
I invite all who want to test or have tested this kind of configuration, to share their own experience or to rise issues.
I'm sure that the Nethesis Team (@alefattorini, @davidep, @filippo_carletti, @giacomo) and the WebTop Team (@gabriele_bulfon, @raffaele_fullone) will be here to assist and help us, when necessary.
Because today I made some tests with SOGo and I don't want that the installation of the NS Beta2 to be altered, tomorrow I will do a new installation from scratch and I will begin the tests with WebTop and Samba AD.
