Ubuntu small business server easy configure packages

Registered by Anders Wallenquist on 2007-11-30

Packages and tools to make configuring of a Small Business Server for Ubuntu as easy as possible. Packages for easy configuration of a directory server (OpenLDAP) and a file server and packages for joining clients (configure pam, change numeric userid etc).

Some goals:

* Files server protocol includes nfs, openafs, sshfs and other (not necessary Samba)
* Configuring in Gnome environment (LAT for LDAP)
* Easy configuration of a Xen-server with shorewall/LDAP/DHCP/DNS in Dom0 and DomU Fileserver, Internal/external web, e-mail, LTSP etc
* Easy configuration of clients and lap-top
* Strategies for backup and redundancy
* Strategies for security and maintenance (pamusb seems to be very interesting for authentication)
