Zentyal Team is glad to announce that a new Zentyal server 3.0-2 installer is now available for download! This installer comes with a new compilation of packages, including all the bugfixes and Ubuntu system updates since the release of the previous 3.0-1 installer.

This 3.0-2 installer is based on the new Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS, that was released last month and it comes with all the system updates and features a new Linux 3.5 kernel.

You can download the ISOs as usual from: www.zentyal.org/downloads/ If you already have Zentyal 3.0 installed, simply upgrade your server through the web interface (Software Management module) or with apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade.

Nachdem Microsoft den Small Business Server 2011 (SBS) zugunsten von Windows Server 2012 eingestellt hat, suchen viele kleine und mittelständische Unternehmen nach Alternativen. Computerwoche veröffentlicht eine kurze Rezension über Zentyal, ein Linux-Komplettpakete, die sich speziell für KMUs ohne tiefe Open-Source-Kenntnisse eignen. Danke schön Computerwoche!

Shabangs explains in this tutorial how to use Zentyal’s directory services for storing and managing users/groups in a centralized database so users can log in to both Windows and Mac machines with the same password. Mac OSX 10.8 “Mountain Lion” is used in this example. Thank you Shabangs!
