So that is where we are now. A missing package, unclear documentation and yum unable to resolve dependencies for some of the remaining packages. As the support community showed no interest in Kopano being used in production and actually got angry that we wanted to, we decided to halt here. But there is the documentation in case anyone runs into this and wants to pursue it further.
In case anyone else is wondering, you can easily schedule OS ticket to fetch emails, by setting up a cron job that "runs" the cron.php file in the OSTicket directory. Just open up /etc/crontab and enter this line:
***Assumes your php directory and OSTicket install are at the locations specified below.
This causes OSTicket to poll the mailbox that is defined in the OSTicket email setup area in the OSTicket GUI, every 5 minutes.
Did anyone ever figure out if there was a way to setup files for firewalld? Or was the XML service files the way to go?
XML I think.
That's what I was afraid of. We're using IPTables on all of our OEL7 servers right now but I think moving to the default firewalld may be a good idea. I'll have to look into the XML config and see how much more difficult, if at all, it is over the IPTables file. It's a shame we can't just copy a single file around anymore but the XML files probably won't be too much more difficult.
Ya it's not bad at all. Here's the config from my Identity Management server. It's pretty similar to /etc/sysconfig/system-config-firewall on RHEL 6, just in zone specific XML files.

Those services are predefined right? You can also build your own services via the same process.
Ya and you can define specific ports. I prob could have grabbed a better example.
No, I think I've got it just need to investigate actually setting these up.
Legacy is a fallback driver that you never want to use, it's low performance and high overhead. If you needed that for CentOS, it would make Hyper-V a silly, non-production ready platform. But Hyper-V is a good, solid performer.
Not only that, but I install all of my CentOS 7 VM's as Generation 2 when on Hyper-V they work perfectly with default settings for everything except secure boot. Uncheck secure boot. Everything else is 100% default settings.
Will there be a topic on "managing inode in linux"
Yes, but it is going to go into an "Advanced Topics" section. Just as LVM and MD will have high level "normal" admin sections and eventually delve much deeper in advanced sections. I want to cover everything in a "normal admin" capacity like you would learn from the RHCE up front. Then go back and cover the nitty gritty details that other admin books don't. So it will basically take two passes but the hope is that the first pass will take you from "starting point" to "competent Linux Admin" then the second part will go where normal admin guides don't tread.
