eBox 1.3 Development Series
Hi again fellow eBox users!
Just one day after officially releasing eBox 1.2 we are happy to have exciting news for you once again!
eBox 1.3 series are the same as 1.2 but with a new great feature. eBox has gained the ability to be set up in a master-slave architecture, allowing several slave eBoxes to use a master eBox's LDAP to keep their users.
This way you can set up a master eBox to hold all your users and groups and then have a few slave eBoxes with different services such as Samba, Asterisk, Jabber or Mail using these users that are available in the master one. Each of these services is configured individually and just will share the users.
It also manages the LDAP directory in more nice way. It does not wipe it out when the module is installed for first time and will use your current configuration.
These are the modules that are considered stable:
If you need to use other modules for production do it at your own risk. We will try our best to fix any problems that appear as soon as possible though.
Upgrading from 1.2 to 1.3 is not supported. We recommend to install 1.3 from scratch in a new machine for testing purposes.
You can read detailed information about how to set up eBox to work in the master/slave mode here?.
