I have been trying to get groups to work on 7.3 with ZERO success.
I also tried to install 7.2, only to get a message that the update server is not responding, can one still install 7.2?

    Hi Nick

    Thank you for the pointer.
    As i have only used Samba before, that is what i was use to... but as you said - avoid Samba Directory
    I just did a clean onstall of 7.3 and will start with LDAP

    For the webconfig, do a "service webconfig restart".

    To configure Samba, have you installed "Windows Networking" and initialised it? To initialise it you'll need to choose a directory server.As you've seen, avoid Samba Directory and go for LDAP. I think if you try to configure Windows Networking (Webconfig > Server > File > Windows Networking) it forces you to initialise a directory server. If not, head over to Webconfig > System > Accounts or Webconfig > Server > Directory > Directory Server.

    Following up on Dave's thinking, can I check your NIC drivers? Many old ones were removed when el7 was released. What is the output of "lspci -k | grep Eth -A 3"?

    Make sure your IP and DNS settings are working. You should be able to ping servers by the host name. For example:

    ping ns1.clearsdn.com
