Subject: citserver insists using UTC-4:00 America/Caracas, correct is UTC-4:30

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Hello Citadel team

Time ago (using version 7.86, 8.04, and 8.14) i was setting a citadel suit for Venezuelan customers and i found citserver insists on using UTC-4:00 for America/Caracas but correct value is UTC-4:30

I did a workaround changing line 60 of genstamp.c:

Original: 

offset = ( (offset / 3600) * 100 ) + ( offset % 60 )

Modified:

offset = ( (offset / 3600) * 100 ) + ( offset % 60 ) + 30;

then problem go away.

However, i'm running 8:24 in two servers, one citadel compiled by myself without workaround and another server using citadel ubuntu package and problem is there in both servers.

Linux have timezone for Venezuela working correctly but apparently citserver insists on using old offset (-4:00) over new offset (-4:30)

I can work using workaround but i think is important fix this issue.

Eduardo

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Don't know wether still is still of any interest, but I wanted to note this down anyway. Still to busy (read: lazy) to write it into the citadel.org wiki as documentation:

I use postfix configured as MTA like this:

main.cf:

#modifications for citadel

transport_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/transport

mailbox_transport = lmtp

relay_domains = mydomain.tld

master.cf:

lmtp      unix  -       -       n       -       -       lmtp

 

/etc/postfix/transport:

mydomain.tld      lmtp:unix:/var/run/citadel/lmtp.socket

 

This has the benefit that I could use more than one lmtp transport, for another citadel (installed into another directory of course) and another domain.

So your problem might be that you are either not disabling the chroot for lmtp in master.cf (the third place, "- - n - -" it is), but I guess you must use "lmtp.socket" instead of the "citadel.socket" file.

Hi jame and dothebart,

thanks for your help.

I could take a little step forward.

I set lmtp of private = n in the master.cf

Now syslog tells the following, after I send a mail to the local user "alex":

Mar 10 11:07:34 8punkt2server postfix/error[31964]: DD087C04F9: to=<alex@8punkt2server.arbeit.de>, relay=none, delay=0.02, delays=0.01/0/0/0.01, dsn=4.3.0, status=deferred (mail transport unavailable)

Hmm, does that mean I should go deeper into postfix?

I attached the output of postconf -n....

Thu Apr 10 2014 03:27:33 EDT from vjarjadian @ Uncensored Subject: AD Auth not working

Hello,

I am trying to setup Citadel to auth to an Active Directory.

I have previously had it working from a samba 4 AD DC but it doesn't seem to be working now.

I have tried debian, but every time it finishes the install the administrator has a blank password and none of the AD info is in the directory page.

Which versions of Citadel? There was a bug in 7.83 or so, one of the first versions where the AD/LDAP support was used. Administrator password in Citadel setup can be neglected, important is the user you chose from AD/LDAP as admin. His password from the directory will be used.

Also I just installed the latest packages on Centos and it works flawless agains Samba 4.0.1.

Thanks the_mgt,

 

this ist exactly the solutiuon:

change chroot fo "n" in main.cfg

I found it out for myself (post on the 30th of March) but I appreciate your help.

The transport_maps are an interesting thing, I will test it soon.

Nope, it was not related to that.  The error essentially said cache buffer is out of space, shutting Citadel down to avoid data loss.

I believe I may have fixed it...

I created a DB_CONFIG file where the default database resides and added "set_cachesize 0 536870912 1" to increase cache buffer to 512 MB contiguous.  My server has 32 GB of memory... so that wasn't much of a stretch.  Usage went from 950 MB up to 1.6 GB with this change.  Citadel is snappier... and hopefully it will not throw that error again.

Hm, no not yet seen...

can you have a look at lsof which are those files?

potentially it could be a spam attack; adding a rate limit for conections in iptables.

which citadel version are you running?
