Univention Corporate Server review by David M.

"Reliable, extensible, fast"

What do you like best?

It just works. It stays up, it's fast & lean.

Built on solid Samba foundations for dependable SMB services to Windows clients.

Strong on configuration visibility

What do you dislike?

Not yet an integrated tool to manage file or folder level permissions.

No dashboard to view overall health or highlight errors occurring in the file servers. Samba logs and logging options can be complex. Univention could add some value to this by consolidating and filtering logs to show the key performance indicators.

When a needed samba or other /etc option is not in the gui, the flow from setting the option in the univention registry through to the generated conf file is not easy to follow.
