After such an integration for which you use our app ‘Active Directory Connection’, the Active Directory (AD) continues to work as a the primary directory service, while UCS can extend the AD domain by exactly those open source software solutions that are available in the App Center.
noobslab.com recently published an article about the Ubuntu Domain Join Client for UCS which provides both a graphical interface, and also a CLI tool to automate the domain join of many Ubuntu clients.
With its many solutions, the Univention App Center offers you a multitude of choices. However, finding the perfect fit is not always taking the easiest solution.
Let me walk you through a step by step process how you can find the optimal solution for your business and which aspects of a software you should examine in particular.
iPads in schools
The digitisation in schools that are equipped with UCS@school continues to progress rapidly. Many school authorities and federal states are providing schools with mobile terminals for use in the classroom. Apple’s iPads in particular are in demand. The devices are robust, easy to use and affordable. They are also equipped with a large number of special apps for digital education.
While iPads are usually tied to a single user, there is one exception for schools with the so-called shared iPads: Students authenticate themselves with their credentials and can thus access personal data, homework, apps, books, etc. This not only saves costs but in combination with mobile device management also a lot of time, as teachers can manage the contents centrally.
The appliances for the online office solutions Collabora and ONLYOFFICE are now also available preconfigured with Nextcloud. Just like the appliances with ownCloud, the online office solutions can be used immediately after commissioning without additional configuration. Simply log on to Nextcloud, create a document and open it in your browser for editing.
For the development of the appliances, an autoconfiguration was added to the respective apps so that the corresponding plugin is activated and configured in Nextcloud with existing Collabora or ONLYOFFICE. This also benefits the usual installations of the apps directly from the App Center.
The appliances are available for download for the virtualization platforms KVM, VirtualBox and VMware.
Today we share our story about how ONLYOFFICE and Nextcloud have formed a strong duo within corporate infrastructures, and how Univention helps it become even more technically accessible to users.
Learn in this case study how the company Backwelt Pilz consolidated its outdated, heterogeneous IT environment, which was characterized by disparate services and systems. In addition to introducing a standard e-mail system via Kopano, they virtualized on KVM and established a professional business backup with SEP sesam.
The platform HowtoForge explains to you how to install ownCloud with ONLYOFFICE using the Univention App Appliance.
