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 development.
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

Notes 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 your
root password twice: once during Anaconda installation (you could use a
lame password), a second time in the Koozali SME server configuration
process.
