  • Ok, some feedback is due here for anyone else who comes across this thread. As I'd built the mechine using a config backup and restore, it knew my credentials and it self-registered so I did not know what to do. I raised a ticked and basically what Philippe said is more or less right.

    As the new system was registered, the first thing I had to do was log into the Clearcenter portal and delete the registration. Then, on the new system, go into Webconfig > System > Settings > System Registration where the system now appears unregistered. You can now register from here registering the system as an Upgrade/Reinstall and select your old system name. Your licences will follow as they stay registered to the system. This did not work with Roundcubemail so I needed a bit more Clearcenter support.

    There is a caveat and I quote from their support e-mail:

    BTW - this does not work if your old system was on a 6.x Pro and your new system is a 7.x that case, we need to change your license so that it can register a version 7 box...if that's the case, just let me know.

  • Thanks, Tony. The ProxyPass works.

    Now I've seen SOGo, from you earlier posts on squirrelmail and hastymail I thought you were against eye candy! And it is slow compared to roundcubemail! I'll give it a go for a while and see if I can integrate the address book with Thunderbird. That would be useful.

  • It used to be possible to change this in a config file in 4.x or 5.x but I can't remember where. I had a poke round 6.x when I first saw this thread but could not find it.

  • Hi Tony,
    I've just tried to use this Howto and it seems like you now need a support contract with user/pass in order to access the repo? Do you know if this is true? It looks like you can only use the nightly builds for free.

    7.2 was harder than expected and I began to think about abandoning it because of a major gotcha. My installation was done by prepping the disk on an old PC then moving the disk. As such the interfaces were going to change. I was happy with this, expecting to configure them at the console. Unfortunately, to identify the interfaces easily, I left one connected and one disconnected. It turns out that in this state you cannot get onto the graphical console. It just hangs. Other symptoms are that LDAP won't start, nor will other bits. I tore my hair out on this one for a long while and nearly abandoned it. Finally as the interface I'd left connected was the WAN and it was already configured for OpenVPN, I managed to get to the webconfig using a data connection to my phone and OpenVPN!

    There are some more bugs:
    1 - Config back up from 6.x and restore to 7.x does not bring in the cyrus-imap certificate and my clients complained about the new certificate
    2 - the samba start up script does not correct the "interfaces" line in smb.conf, so the new (LAN) interface was not found and smb and nmb failed
    3 - fail2ban defaults to firewall-cmd and not iptables. This should possibly be fixed in the clearos-epel repo.

    If you're trying to pipe into grep it should bebut you'd want something after grep which is what you are grep'ing for.

    You've done more changes than that. I think a basic file looks something like:I also made changes but I think this is the 6.x original. You've add an alternative DNS server for your LAN devices (for AD?) and made a few other tweaks.

    FWIW, I recently realised that if you want to make additions to the file you can make them to a file /etc/dnsmasq.d/anything.conf which will separate your additions from the base file. dnsmasq does, however, complain if you repeat a parameter in different files.

    Can you try creating the file:Then restart the proxy.

  • Where are you trying to access the LDAP server from? If it is from your LAN, have you set the Publish Policy to LAN?

    Is the LDAP server running and which version of ClearOS are you using?

    It looks like you have made some changes and configured a PXE server. Have you tried removing your changes to see if it then works?
