PostPosted: Mon Dec 05, 2011 5:43 pm    Post subject: SMS Config GUI tools Reply with quote

As you may notice, from December 3rd, SMS now have some GUI tools to make configuration easier for novice users.
Those tools are Kommander scripts (kmdr) and require x-kde-addon.
Scripts are placed in /usr/share/applications and they are part of sms-scripts package.
Kmdr-executor and libs are part of x-kde-addon package.
If you wanna try scripts to an existing system, without upgrade x-kde-addon,
download kmdr libs and kmdr-executor for x86 and for x86_64

By default when you make a full install of SMS and login to KDE, you will find a desktop shortcut called sms_config.

SMS_Config



Services

First button will open services dialog where you can see which services are enable or not and if they are running.
You can also stop or start a service and edit configuration files of each service with kwrite.



NetConfig

The second button will open the netconfig dialog, which is pretty much the same as if you were running /sbin/netconfig or /sbin/netconfig-lcd, but with some extras.
Choose your hostname.domain and for which services, add your network preferences for each interface including your DNS settings and add a router configuration.
If you don't want to set all options, just uncheck what yo don't want.



Raid Recovery

Raid recovery, is a safe GUI tool for Scan, asseble, stop, or view details about a RAID array.
Don't have any advanced options deliberately, for not damaging a RAID array, by accident.



SMS Tools

Finally there is SMS Tools which provide an easy way to reset MySQL root password, or Webmin administrators password.
Also can migrate db44 to db46 like sms-migrate.sh and finally can change/reset OpenLDAP password.
The GUI ask you for the old password to change cn=Manager,dc=hostname,dc=domain,
but even if you don't provide one, password will be changed whatever, since it will alter /etc/openldap/slapd.conf.



More tools will come, if you have an idea, just contact me.
