Null Physical

USB Stick / Hard Disk Image

Dump this format on your USB stick or hard disk and boot from it. You may need to instruct the machine’s BIOS to boot from an external source if you’re usign a USB stick. Write the disk image using either `dd` or image writing software on your OS.

Live CD / DVD (.iso)

Use this format if you want to burn your appliance on CD or DVD. This is the easiest way to prepare bootable media. Simply download the .iso file and burn it to disk via any existing OS.

Preload ISO (.iso)

This is an ideal format if you are planning to perform installations on physical machines. Your appliance’s disk image will be wrapped in a simple bootable installer that asks only which hard disk to install to, and packaged for use on optical media.

Null Virtual

VMware Workstation / VirtualBox (.vmdk)

For virtual machines on VMware, VirtualBox, or KVM-based hypervisors. Test an appliance without formatting any hard disk. VirtualBox and VMware applications are available for most host operating systems. KVM virtualization is for Linux only.

OVF Virtual Machine / ESXi (.ovf)

Open Virtualization Format (OVF) is an open, standards-based format for virtual machines. A variety of hypervisors including SUSE Cloud, VirtualBox, VMware ESX(i), IBM SmartCloud, and Oracle VM support creating virtual machines by importing an .ovf file.

Hi Mr. Sugianto.
I was made clean installation Your Exelent…. version 1.0.4 as primary domain controller and the same way was made another instance with version 1.1.16. Add PC W732 to the domain was succes in both cases. In newes version 1.1.16 is not able to manage DNS via dnsmgmt.msc console, due the error "The server dc1 could not be contacted. The error was: The endpoint format is invalid " . dsa.msc console work fine, and is able manage users and groups. Can You advise me, where can be bug ?

Doesnot seem to work for me. (Preload ISO) into a XEN virtual client. No network detected.
Expect that is rather “non-optional” for an PDC >:-()
Hence the script in /srv/v/dcpromo.sh fails seriously with all sorts of non-english complaints.

Marc JacksonMarc Jackson,

Network interfaces are part of YOUR virtual machine configuration. This VM appliance will
find and use the network interface(s) you have configured for the VM.

Check you have configured the correct number and type of NIC’s.

Hi, Mr.Sugianto
I’ve downloaded the app and the script is working just fine up to the Kerberos testing part. When these commands :
kinit administrator@NAMADOMAINUPPER

and

klist -e

are executed, respectively, they returned

kinit : Cannot contact any KDC for realm ‘FRITO.LOCAL’ while getting initial credentials.

and

klist : No credentials cache found (ticket cache FILE:/tmp/krb5cc_0)

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Marc JacksonMarc Jackson,

Using a ‘.LOCAL’ domain should be avoided as I believe it is used for Bonjour and service
discovery. Generally a good idea to avoid it.

thanks For Linux Team

nasuosnasuos,

So is anyone using this in a production environment with Windows 7 boxes?

Masim Vavai SugiantoMasim Vavai Sugianto,

I’m using this on some clients (production environment) with Windows 7+Windows XP. Did you encounter any problem?

nasuosnasuos,

No problems. I just found this link today looking for a replacement for windows PDC. So if this is in a production state, I want to try it out. We too have a mixture of both Windows 7 and Windows XP.

Thanks!

Luis García-Pimentel RuizLuis García-Pimentel Ruiz,

Thank you so much.

After running the script, I cannot reach the outside network. Even though I checked that the network settings specially gateway where ok. Logically this leads to DNS not forwarding correctly. Do you have any insight on that?

Also after joining one win 7 pro VM and installing remote admin tools, when I create a new user it shows an error stating (sorry I don’t hace the exact english text, my windows is in spanish) that windows cannot check if the user is unique and that it probably won’t be able to logon, due to the “server is not functional”.

Hi,

What about ping to public IP and check the named services (something like “service named status”).

I am new to Linux. Can you provide just a few quick-start notes?
How to run this SAMBA actually?
I don’t see any samba package in Yast or any smbt/nmbt process in “top”

Does it work at all?
Where are config files? Is LDAP configured?

I don’t see anything there.
How can I install VirtualBox tools there? currently configured repository doesn’t hold any virtualbox package.

Hi,

Sorry I know this is a noob problem. I’m stuck at Stage 1 not responding at all or am I being impatient? I’m using virtualbox, network adapter is on NAT.

Thanks!

Hi. We have a Samba4 AD (from other provider) working for some weeks. ¿Is there some manual to install yours as a BDC?. I want to migrate mine to this one.

Hi,

Something is not setting up bind or the samba dns settings properly.
DNS fails to start with :

Jan 28 12:28:38 linux named2473: Loading ‘AD DNS Zone’ using driver dlopen
Jan 28 12:28:38 linux named2473: samba_dlz: Failed to connect to /usr/local/samba/private/dns/sam.ldb
Jan 28 12:28:38 linux named2473: dlz_dlopen of ‘AD DNS Zone’ failed
Jan 28 12:28:38 linux named2473: SDLZ driver failed to load.
Jan 28 12:28:38 linux named2473: DLZ driver failed to load.
Jan 28 12:28:38 linux named2473: loading configuration: failure
Jan 28 12:28:38 linux named2473: exiting (due to fatal error)

/usr/local/samba/private/dns/sam.ldb the dns directory and sam.ldb are missing – which causes bind to fail and no workstation can find the domain controller.

cheers

Brian PalBrian Pal,

x2, i copyed the files from …./private to …/private/dns and chmod 777 them all, and still failes, lots of samba_dlz errors.

Brian PalBrian Pal,

fixed, forgot to set permissions to files in ./private/dns/sam.ldb.d

AlexAlex,

Please, tell me more about how you solved this problem.
I can not do it.
Error is the same as yours.

AlexAlex,

it’s simple.
Need to do a domain such as “example.com” and all will work.
I wanted to make the domain “lan” – do not work.

bagio bagiobagio bagio,

Works for me at VirtualBox, thanks !

pferrillpferrill,

Is SWAT available in the appliance?

Tristan JestinTristan Jestin,

NULL! Can not connect to a user

Masim Vavai SugiantoMasim Vavai Sugianto,

Hi Jestin,

Could you please tell me the details. What is the image platform you try to test the appliance (preload iso, ovf, etc) and what’s about can not connect to a user? Do you means you can not log on to the appliance or does this means your appliance client can not log on to Samba 4 services?

Is there any error message? Would you please try the ovf version? Please let me know if you got the problem regarding the appliance

Hi mas,

Sorry for a late reply. “Loading your personal setting” usually related to profile on Document and Settings. Is this possible to use new user or another new account to test the appliance?

Masim Vavai SugiantoMasim Vavai Sugianto,

Hi Marcello Moretti,

Could you please try the version 0.9.4? Also, would you like to give a details about your host and Virtual engine?

I’ve successfully deploy the appliance by using VMWare vSphere (5.0 and 5.1) and also on VirtualBox (on top of openSUSE 12.2 64 bit)

Masim Vavai SugiantoMasim Vavai Sugianto,

Hi Jose Carlos,

Please make sure you are using version 0.9.2. The script are on /srv/v directory. Please let me know if you have any trouble regarding the script.

Jose Carlos Rodrigues de LimaJose Carlos Rodrigues de Lima,

Hi,
I installed the image on a virtualbox using the iso as media before burn and use on a real machine.

After installed , rebooted, and i didn´t find the dcpromo.excellent anywhere. i gets your directions above. when i do a find / -name dcpromo returns nothing.

Did i missed something?

Kind regards,

Jose Carlos, from Brazil
