About SME Server
SME Server is the leading Linux distribution for small and medium
enterprises. SME Server is brought to you by Koozali Foundation, Inc.,
a non-profit corporation that exists to provide marketing and legal support
for SME Server.

SME Server is freely available under the GNU General Public License and
is only possible through the efforts of the SME Server community.

However, the availability and quality of SME Server is dependent on
meeting our expenses, such as hosting costs, server hardware, etc.

As such, we ask for a donation to offset costs and fund further development.

a) If you are a school, a church, a non-profit organisation or an individual
using SME Server for private purposes, we would appreciate you to contribute
within your means toward the costs associated with hosting, maintenance and

b) If you are a company or an integrator and you are deploying SME Server in
the course of your work to generate revenue, we expect you to make a donation
commensurate with the level of revenue you generate and the number of servers
your have in the field. Please, help the project

In-place upgrades are not supported. It is necessary to backup and then restore.
(Remember, testing purpose only)

The spare handling for RAID arrays is not implemented.

USB installs are now supported, see: https://wiki.koozali.org/Install_From_USB

Current installer is still branded CentOS. A kickstart script allow to go through the
graphical installation process. If your disk is not empty, you will need to use the Anaconda
interface to format it and partition it. If it is empty all is automatic. You
will have to set twice your root password: one during Anaconda installation (you could
use a lame password), a second time in the Koozali SME server configuration process.
