I really hope someone can help me out with this one, as it would an amazing compilation of software. The new SME server is almost released. It's at rc1 and seems very stable. Plus it's also based on CentOS 4 which I know that scalix works well on. I have followed a howto http://contribs.org/modules/pbboard/viewtopic.php?t=23069&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0
from the contribs forum but the howto is not complete and only gets scalix installed and semi working. i am still posting at that same site but I thought maybe a post on here can give some insight
The problems arise with ldap. both sme and scalix runs on an ldap server on port 389. and once you reboot the server i think the sme ldap takes over and scalix sac and webmail does not allow login. stating that the server is not responding. but also saying that the account name is incorrect. i have tried getting the sme ldap stopped and scalix back up but it doesn't work
i tried changing the scalix ldap. changed it in
restarted ldap with omoff and omon
when i try to log in with webmail, firefox keeps telling me that a pop-up is being blocked even though blocking is off. couldn't get any further. btw when i did a netstat i could see both sme ldap on port 389 and scalix ldap on 390
changed it all back, stopped sme ldap and it worked again
then i changed sme ldap port in /etc/openldap/ldap.conf to 390 and started /etc/rc.d/init.d/ldap and here i am dumbfounded. even though the conf file says 390 ldap keeps starting up on 389 according to netstat. i am hoping someone on the sme forum can help with that one.
what I am hoping on this forum is if someone could help me setup scalix to run ldap on another port and have everything connect to that port. using the same ldap server would be the ultimate but right now i don't really care if I have to create users twice. I just want scalix functioning with sme on the same server. I hope there is anyone who could help. My time is running out to get this working.
If this helps at all, Florian, I was the one to convice wings to migrate 200 users, with the help of Synaq, to scalix from exchange. I am now at systeque and as I understand they are also becoming scalix partners, so I will hopefully doing a lot more scalix converts soon.
