Sorry, my mistake.

I made a user account on OX and afterwards on SME – This user works fine.

The mailadmin user can’t use calendar as DarkMirage already wrote.

Any suggestions regarding client if I don’t want to use a browser? I don’t se any point in installing Outlook  :hammer:

Hi again,

User Setup doesn’t work?

Please see http://hegnstoften.net/ox/user_setup_error.jpg

Is it an issue due to setup on SME or an OX issue?

DarkMirage said in the instructions that it does not work.

I think you have to upload some .war files

There is a problem with Tomcat5/apache/jk

in httpd log

mod jk log

worker=ajp13 failed

Also cannot access Tomcat via

http://yourdomain:8080/manager/html

If this can be resolved I think the .war files for user admin can be loaded.

This may also be the reason why a request to add a calendar item creates a load of disk activity on the server before it can be created.

Hope this helps

OX-Look => outlook connector

Denbert,

You can dowload a connector for outlook (OX-Look) from the open-xchange.org site afaik.

Well, the rights for the mailadmin are easily fixed with this:
Code: [Select]
/usr/local/ox/sbin/addusersql_ox --username=mailadmin --lang=EN
I will include this in the script later.

I'm working on the integration of user collaboration at the moment, which seems to be going alright. I will probably use ldap-like actions to insert the proper entries, but I still need to figure out what the addusersql script does, as I don't like the Open-Xchange scripts, imho they are to widely compatible (meaning inefficient if the environment is known anyway).

@tbcomputing: I've minimised the mod_jk and tomcat entries, so that's probably why the manager isn't working (where does it say you should be able to access http://yourdomain:8080/manager/html in my posts?  :-D ) Opening several ports and sites and servlets looks unsecure to me. Don't know where your error is coming from though.

@jester: I can't keep up with both the ox updates and the sme7 upgrades, but I'll do my best to start using new versions as soon as possible.

@charlie: I don't know if it's a bug; I used a kind-of weird setup, and it worked anyway... What I did find, which I'll look into further before posting a bug, is squid failing on a dns lookup (no internet access), which causes the local webserver to remain silent on requests, although it's running

I take your point about the tomcat/jk and your script.

I will try and find out some more about my error.

I think I may need a better test platform

Updated the script/installation with the following:

User integration: No more commandline
Just add users and groups as you always do,
reset the password (also for existing users),
and login at Open-Xchange :-D

Removed a wrong template fragment
Since I excluded php pgsql, the php.ini entry was invalid

Corrected permissions for mailadmin
Mailadmin shouldn't have any 'permission denied' anymore.
Also resolved a duplicate sql entry for mailadmin.

Set mailadmin to use the system password
The password needs to be reset once before use.
Notice:
If you add the mailadmin user for webmail access, it's password will be either the system password or the mailadmin password, whichever was reset last. This will be fixed shortly.
Fixed

Commented out script correctfilespool
Really, what does this do, except for extend the installation time?
So, installation went down to ca 10 min. here. I will analyze/rewrite the script later.

Planning (next up is):

Configuration panel
A server manager panel to configure/modify the ConfigDB entry.
Still waiting for requests, and still wondering which settings are most likely to be changed during usage.
So far I've only included the default user settings, plus a enable/disable option.

Update/upgrade to Open-Xchange 0.8.0-1 and alpha 11
No actual changes expected (I'll find out when I get there)

Really taking shape nicely! :hammer:

There is a missing file: Could not retrieve perl-Authen-PAM-0.15-1.1.el3.rf.i386.rpm.
Known source was http://dag.wieers.com/packages/perl-Authen-PAM/perl-Authen-PAM-0.15-1.1.el3.rf.i386.rpm.

Changed the source in the script to: http://apt.sw.be/dries/packages/ and it resolved the problem here.

Cheers,
Richard

DarkMirage,

you was waiting for some requests, so.... I'm just pooring out my mind:
- WebDAV support
- SyncML support (http://www.open-xchange.org/oxwiki/SyncML)
- support for user authentication on remote Win or SME(samba)domain (http://no.longer.valid/phpwiki/index.php/SME%20Domain%20Client%20Howto)
- start/stop/restart of ox in configuration panel
- option to deny users use of ox, ox-webinterface or shutdown of ox-webinterface in configuration panel
- installation of language-packs trough configuration panel

Just some thoughts, i only would need WebDav myself for now but i could imagine the others beeing usefull for somebody. I hope to finally find time to give your work a go next week.
So far you've done a hell of a job!!!

Jester.

ERROR: Authentification failed on w/alpha12
« Reply #25 on: May 16, 2005, 07:37:58 PM »
Hi,

  I just did an install with 7.0alpha12 and it all pretty much work... except that I cannot login to the login.pl screen.  I get an Authentification [sic] error.

My Open-Xchange-install.err file is pretty clean.  I had the following issues:

  A. Several rpm warnings:

     warning: ant-1.6.2-3jpp.noarch.rpm:
     V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID c431416d

     This doesn't look serious because when I do an
     rpm -qa | grep ant I can see that they are all
     installed.

  B. Tomcat shutdown specified twice:
     
     60shutdownwait' specified more than once

  C. Two psql entries:

     psql:/usr/local/ox/share/init_database.sql:1103:
     NOTICE:  CREATE TABLE / PRIMARY KEY will create
     implicit index 'attachments_pkey' for table
     'attachments'

  D. Can't Connect to LDAP Server:

     ldap_bind: Can't contact LDAP server

The last one seems like it would cause an authentication failure.  I did a little checking.  I have 5 slapd daemons running, but I try to authenticate in the login.pl window I det an "err=49" (password... I don't think so  I tried that)  I have to say Alpha12 is the first release I've tried this on.


Code: [Select]

May 16 11:34:51 hook slapd[1581]: daemon: conn=16 fd=9 connection from IP=127.0.0.1:32805 (IP=0.0.0.0:389) accepted.
May 16 11:34:51 hook slapd[2527]: conn=16 op=0 BIND dn="" method=128
May 16 11:34:51 hook slapd[2527]: conn=16 op=0 RESULT tag=97 err=0 text=
May 16 11:34:51 hook slapd[2527]: conn=16 op=1 BIND dn="UID=MAILADMIN,OU=USERS,OU=OXOBJECTS,DC=HITECHSAVVY,DC=COM" method=128
May 16 11:34:51 hook slapd[2527]: conn=16 op=1 RESULT tag=97 err=49 text=

Okay...

  I have a few files with bad ownership.  Did I run the script wrong?

Code: [Select]

ls -l /var/lib/ldap
total 128
-rw-------    1 ldap     ldap        16384 May 16 12:46 cn.dbb
-rw-------    1 ldap     ldap        24576 May 16 12:46 dn2id.dbb
-rw-------    1 root     root         8192 May 15 18:08 gidNumber.dbb
-rw-------    1 root     root         8192 May 15 18:08 givenName.dbb
-rw-------    1 ldap     ldap        24576 May 16 12:46 id2entry.dbb
-rw-------    1 ldap     ldap         8192 May 16 12:46 mail.dbb
-rw-------    1 ldap     ldap         8192 May 16 12:46 nextid.dbb
-rw-------    1 ldap     ldap         8192 May 16 12:46 objectClass.dbb
-rw-------    1 root     root         8192 May 15 18:08 sn.dbb
-rw-------    1 ldap     ldap         8192 May 16 12:46 uid.dbb
-rw-------    1 root     root         8192 May 15 18:08 uidNumber.dbb


After that I still have to add users to the command line first... then the SME GUI.  Otherwise it will not work.

I've got the same messages as jfarschman on SME7.0alpha13 (although it says alpha12 ?!). Re-read the message from DarkMirage on installing OX and realised that i did not get any question on a mailadmin passwd, should this be?!

Jay, what should the proper ownership of the files in: /var/lib/ldap be?! (sorry.... i'm a newbie) I'm want to give that ox-look connector a go.

Sorry I haven't been around...

The complete data dir of ldap should be owned by ldap.
(chown -R ldap:ldap /var/lib/ldap)

I should tell you, since I'm creating a whole new install, I haven't been able to test with anything later then alpha 10. Not sure if anything changed..

It shouldn't be long now before I update the scripts and files.

The new version will include most of the options mentioned by Jester above, but I'll get in to that once I have it all working.
Thanks for the suggestions, Jester, I was just wondering about one thing, how are you testing for webdav? I don't know why it's not working, if it isn't...

Error 49 stands for invalid credentials. If you haven't changed /etc/openldap/ldap.conf, the root dn to be specific, it's probably your user, not Open-Xchange failing. Do you get a 'Authentication failed' message?
You might just try resetting the password for the user (in SME that is, it then should sync itself with OX).

Not getting the 'Enter password' prompt is correct, I removed it from the installation.
(edit)
Just checked my test installation for the ldap problem, seems since I've deprecated the use of slapadd in favor of ldapadd, all file ownerships remain correct.
