Why I made a tutorial instead use the one provided by OpenChange team :
  • I'm don't very like to use compiled source, I prefer system will packaged software.
  • I'm don't want to have two directory (Samba4 and OpenChange in the provided tutorial).
  • I want to use full Samba4 features, not only MAPI layer.
  • I want store mails into user home directory, not in a virtual folder.
  • I want to use local ID for users available in Samba4 to make chmod, chown, etc..
  • And may be more.
Thanks :D

No better, but not worth, I got a different message now (see the attached file for the log), but Samba4 stills a little bit unstable.

Aditionnaly, each time I open Outlook, it create multiple time the same folder.

Thanks for you answer,

I will try PostGreSQL instead Mysql and come to you once tested. If it's better, I will  update my tutorial.

Best regards.

Hi all,

I just finished to write a tutorial in order to install Samba4/OpenChange/Sogo on Ubuntu/Debian, available at

(only available in french yet).

Basically, you can build your self a ZEG machine, but with Share/Domain Controller working, withtout OpenLDAP (only one directory on Samba4), and simplified way to create users. Also I only use packages provided by to install the softwares.

I'll very happy if you can test and let comments.

Best regards.

Excellent work Olivier, I am going to build one today and get back to the list with the results. Microsoft Babel Fish seems to make a good job of converting your French into English but it's easy enough to follow anyway.

Boys, why don't you use official openchange installation method

It covers samba4, openchange, sogo and all the other relevant soft installation from source which is the recommended way to go :)

Nice and easy tutorial.
