Dear Experts:

I have purchased a ubuntu certified hardware (ibm x3400 m3), i have been asked to install and configure the following:
samba domain controller (pdc),dhcp,dns,ftp and squid and also install windows 2003/2008 as a guest OS due to this i think installing zentyal on a new machine is not possible because i have to run atleast two guests on this server (windows and centos) hence planning to install the ubuntu server edtion 10.4 LTS and then install the zentyal please provide me the how to docs or step by step guide , Iam looking for the how to doc or step by step guide for installing the zentyal on an existing Ubuntu Server Edition( ubuntu server is already installed ). Please help me in this

Why do you want to install zentyal as guest? why don't you configure Ubuntu itself for samba domain controller (pdc),dhcp,dns,ftp, squid etc and also install windows 2003/2008 as a guest OS...Please read the review of Zentyal http://www.theregister.co.uk/2010/11/18/zentyal_review/page3.html

Cheers...

What I meant in my earlier post was I don't recommend Zentyal as guest on Ubuntu. Ubuntu itself can be configured for Samba, dhcp, dns, ftp, Squid etc..

Cheers..
