  • No you're right about offsite backup. I use NextCloud just for sharing files and syncing them across devices. Not for backup. That is why I said it was a bit different.

    You can always install from epel-unverified manually by adding "--enablerepo=epel-unverified" to your yum command but it is at your risk. Certbot should always be pretty up to date there, but the devs dont't push it through to clearos-epel automatically in case if breaks packages such as the Let's Encrypt package. It was pushed through last night to clearos-epel so your system should now be updating itself.

    @Dustin,
    Bumping this thread as I have just found it again in another search.

    If you look at this forum sticky, you now no longer have to use Enable "Windows 10 Domain Logons" for client PC's to join the ClearOS domain. All that setting did is restrict the protocol to SMB1. If you don't enable it, SMB2 and SMB2 will be used. You can even go as far as setting "min protocol = SMB2", so you can pass your STIG requirements.

  • This is pretty fatal for RHEL/Centos/ClearOS users with RHEL's update policy of not bumping bigger version numbers, but back-porting patches into earlier versions so Dropbox are cutting out the whole branch of Linus users. Ext4 is another problem as the default filesystem in 7.x is XFS.

    I have seen a lot a frustration on the internet,but Dropbox don't seem to want to listen. I've seen possible solution such as UA spoofing for glibc and mounting an ext4 filesystem as a loop device in a current filesystem.

    Apparently in the Ubuntu world they use ext4 with an encryption layer on top by default. That does not work either but Dropbox don't care.

    it looks like it is time to find something else. I'm OK as I don't use it and I am experimenting with NextCloud - similar but different, I believe.

    You have the link to the document. There are documents linked to it. If you want, there is a Clearcenter Youtube channel, but I've no idea what you'll find there. You can enrol in the ClearOS Certifications where you'll find a load of training videos. I can't do much more unless you give it a try and, if it does not work cam bac with a good description of the problem you are trying to solve and the diagnostics you've done (i.e don't just say "it doesn't work").

    In future, ClearOS backs itself up every night and keeps a rolling 10 days of backups.

    For Windows 7, you just need to do the registry changes. Click on the documentation link in the Windows Networking page.
