ClearOS networking problems

Recommended Posts

Patient Steve

Guys, I have been struggling with clearOS 7.4 on my new Microserver Gen10 (base model, 16 GB RAM, 250 GB SDD in optical drive slot, nice piece of kit).  Most perplexing problem is that when I do an install and first reboot, Windows Networking (Samba) application works fine, but if I then simply reboot it will not start.

 

The guys on the clearOS forums have been spectacularly helpful but even they are running out of ideas.

 

A probably unrelated issue is that I don't seem to be able to connect via ftp - I keep getting 530 login incorrect messages.

 

Anyone come across anything similar?  Any thoughts?

I am just starting to play with ClearOS. Have you tried escalating this with HPE? I seem to have fairly good luck using their chat system in support.

Why HPE must help users to configure OS? ClearOS=RedHat=CentOS , so google,com can help ;) 

RedHat services must be configured to run on boot over systemctl enable <service> , ftp access restricted by default and must be configured.

The guys from clearOS (and one particular guy on their forum) were very helpful.  I had to give the dev guys access to my server and it turned out to be an obscure problem way beyond my knowledge.  To quote the clearOS guys:

 

'Have not seen it on any other server, but for whatever reason, even with systemd's start up order settings, the parallel boot up of systemd on your box gets nslcd in a knot it cannot recover from on boot until you restart it.

 

Samba, cannot start with nslcd...it's a symptom of the real problem.'

 

They gave me some short instructions to create a small file and change its attributes and it worked fine.

 

Sadly I have been too busy to explore clearOS any further but my Samba problem has been solved.  clearOS support guys very helpful

It was a bit more fundamental than a configuration issue and I have not seen it reported on an hpe Microserver Gen10 anywhere else.  Certainly, if the clearOS team had been unable to solve it I would have been back to hpe asking for my money back since they are pushing the box specifically as a clearOS machine.

Hmm.. very strange , in ClearOS samba use local LDAP by default?

 

P.S. Try CentOS , i not have any issues with samba or sftp/ftp, its work very smooth and stable.

      Hi All,
       
      I am setting up a MicroServer with Windows Home Server 2011 running as a file server at my home (local area network).
       
      On my old file server, I was able to scan documents at my Brother MFC and send them directly to a the user's folder on the file-server via FTP.
       
      WHS 2011 is proving a little more challenging to setup.  Could someone please help with how to configure WHS2011?
       
      I've seen the youtube video by Mike on setting up WHS 2011 and FTP, but it only enables one central storage folder, rather than sending scanned documents to a user's individual folder.
       
      any help much appreciated.
       
      Thanks

      I'm trying to set up FTP on my WHS 2011 box. Actually, I tried FileZilla Server but I just could not get it to work. So I enabled FTP through IIS in WHS and it is working, I'm able to access it via a browser, FileZilla client, and from my scanner.
       
      The questions I have are these:
       
      Can I have several directories or folders on one FTP server? In other words, lets say I want to have folders for receipts, auto service records, etc, is that possible? Would I create additional folders in the root FTP folder?
       
      Perhaps to better understand, here is what I want to do and I want to know if a) can it be done and how so?
       
      I have a networked Brother MFC. It is located in an out of the way area and whenever I want to scan something, I have to walk to the MFC, insert the documents in the machine, walk back to my computer then scan the documents. Now if I want to scan a lot of documents, this gets tiring. My Brother MFC can scan to FTP so ideally I'd go to the machine with my various documents and scan them all to my WHS via FTP using the Brother's control panel to route them to the appropriate folders or shares. Right now I've got the Brother configured to scan to FTP to my WHS but everything ends up in one folder.
       
      Does that make sense or is there a stupidly simple and better way to accomplish what I want? I'm open to suggestions to something other than FTP. I know some of you use something else for document management but I can't remember what it is.
