New: UCS Dashboard Facilitates Administrator Monitoring

In the UCS Dashboard app, we now have the first (beta) version of a new dashboard based on the Open Source solutions Grafana and Prometheus. The app allows administrators to check the status of domains and individual servers on different dashboards quickly and simply. The dashboards can be accessed simply via a web browser, access a database in the background, and deliver updated reports on certain aspects of the domain or servers continually.

Ready to use: Nextcloud, ownCloud, Kopano, OpenProject or Mattermost App Appliances

Appliances are available for a number of apps from the Univention App Center for fast and easy deployment to different virtualization platforms. In the appliances UCS is already pre-installed. The setup of appliances is for the systems simple and always the same: the user runs through a system setup wizard, in which the settings required for operation are made.

The well-known open source client management system opsi can not only deal with Microsoft Windows clients but also with Linux. As Univention announced the discontinuation of Univention Corporate Client (UCC), I want to present you opsi as an alternative for the fully automated installation, maintenance and inventory of Linux desktop clients in your domain. In addition, opsi can also do the same for complete Linux and UCS systems.

MediaWiki – a Culture of Sharing Your Knowledge

Bild von alten Büchern

Enterprise wikis are about technology and features – but also about the main principle of sharing.

Wikis were a small cultural revolution. The idea behind it: Different people join online to collaboratively write texts, review them, discuss changes, improve, supplement, link and categorize them. And through this work and combined knowledge of many people a powerful central knowledge base is created in which you almost always find what you need to know.

Wikipedia has consistently thought through the model of openly exchanging knowledge and made it popular. For 17 years Wikipedia has been the place to go for knowledge on the Web while the use of wikis has been spreading in companies, too. The open source software TWiki (1998) or the proprietary Confluence (2004) paved the way for the triumphant march of wiki technology in companies. Of course, the Wikipedia software MediaWiki (2002) also plays a part in the story about wikis in companies. But more on that in a moment.

Guide to Your Private UCS Server with ownCloud, Kopano & Let’s Encrypt

Have you ever thought?: “It’s enough! I finally want to set up my own robust, powerful server at home to put an end to the permanent threat that someone might hack my precious data.”

I did! And today, I’d like to share with you here all the necessary steps that are required for this. In addition to UCS, my home server scenario also includes a software bundle made up of groupware, mail, and file exchange software, i.e. ownCloud and the Kopano apps. This bundle make proprietary mail and groupware solutions redundant if you like. In addition, I also show you how to install Let’s Encrypt so that the connections to your UCS server will be well protected, too.
