Zentyal is glad to announce that it will be present at SambaXP 2013, the international Samba conference for users and developers taking place in Göttingen, Germany, from May 14 to 17. A talk entitled Challenges and Experiences of the Samba 4.0 Integration in Zentyal will be held by Samuel Cabrero, developer at Zentyal, within the track 2 on May 16 at 10:45h. Julien Kerihuel, CTO of Zentyal, will also be attending this event and discuss the progress and ecosystem of the Open Source OpenChange project he has funded and lead for the past decade.

Zentyal Team is excited to participate in the Samba XP! As you might know, Zentyal Server 3.0 integrated Samba 4.0 with the aim of providing a full replacement for the Windows Server Active Directory and make the migration procedure from Windows servers to Linux servers easy. The event offers a wonderful opportunity to meet the Samba Team, learn from other projects integrating Samba and continue building links between the different development teams.

Integration of Samba 4.0 in Zentyal 3.0 rose some technical challenges, mainly related to keeping OpenLDAP and Samba4 databases synchronized and how Samba 4.0 was integrated with the rest of the Zentyal modules, for example, DNS and DHCP with dynamic DNS updates. In this technical presentation, Cabrero will expose how Zentyal solved these issues.

During the presentation, Cabrero will also explain how thanks to Samba 4.0, Zentyal can be integrated into existing Active Directory domains so Linux based services can be deployed within Microsoft environments (additional file server, Kerberos authentication for HTTP proxy and Mail server, etc).

Zentyal Development Team is glad to announce the next stable Zentyal server release (Zentyal 3.2) is one step closer: the first beta Zentyal 3.1 packages and installer are available! This new installer and packages come already with some new features: new IPS module, L2TP support in the IPsec module, faster Zentyal administration interface, new headless (remote administration only) installation in the expert mode and faster boot due to better daemons management.

The new installer, for both 32- and 64-bit architectures, is available at the Beta Downloads Page. It is also possible to install the 3.1 packages on an existing Ubuntu Server 12.04 following the instructions on the Installation Guide. The highlights of this new release are:

  • Improved Samba4 integration: GPO support, external AD authentication/SSO, Contacts and Distribution lists support and Multiple OU support via Zentyal UI.
  • Improved user experience and better support in disaster recovery scenarios: improved UI responsiveness, JQuery UI and MySQL backup.

So now it is time for your feedback and bug reports through the Forum and Trac. Zentyal Team greatly appreciate your help in testing this version in order to make Zentyal 3.2 the best release ever!  Please remember that Zentyal 3.1 is a beta version and it is not intended for production environments. The stable version of Zentyal 3.2 will be released in September 2013.
