After installing and configuring ClearOS 7.2 with Samba Directory (Beta), Samba Directory is not working. After I installed Samba Directory and going to System/Account/Users, it gives this error message and this has been earlier reported to ClearOS.
Or this error message:
Even though Samba Directory is running:
I usually give step-by-step what I used to installing and configure, but both ClearOS and Samba Directory is a mess. That’s the only polite way to say it, I guess.
I used a complex password for both ClearOS and Samba Directory, using upper and letter case, numbers and a special symbol – but accessing Users it still gives the same error message.
I first tried a simple password for ClearOS. It took the password but when I try to change it in the Dashboard, the first time it only said “Failure to Update”. I updated the password by using ssh.
When I use one DNS server, it seems to configure ClearOS and Samba Directory. But when adding two DNS servers, the first one is my ClearOS IP, I keep getting error messages about can’t reach clearos for updates and error message about registering:
Even though it said ‘DNS lookup succeeded’:
This is my Samba Directory configuration page. This time it said it is Running, but sometimes it says it has Stopped:
and a couple of time it is said it’s Dead.
I go on and on about the error messages for ClearOS or Samba Directory (Beta), but why? I read the User Manual and did what it said, even though it only half matched what I saw configuring and what it said in the User Manual. I would not use for production server, and maybe not a test server, until they resolve some of numerous error messages and fix the User Manual.
