AVA-SBS

AVA SBS is an easy to use installer for SAMBA, Open-Xchange and other freely available open source tools, to create a easy to use MS SBS replacement. Included is AVA-ADM a the web based administration tool.

  • AVA-SBS is a simple easy to use installer / admin tool for a couple of popular open source projects that are very difficult to set up. Here is a list of what you get when you install AVA-SBS


  • 1. SAMBA PDC
  • 2. OpenLDAP
  • 3. Open-Xchange
  • 4. Postfix
  • 5. Cyrus IMAP
  • 6. Spam Assassin
  • 7. ClamAV
  • 8. Webmin
  • 9. Bind
  • 10. AVA-ADM

here is a brief description of what each one is.

SAMBA PDC – As most of you know when configured as a PDC Samba basically becomes a Primary NT Domain Controller. When authenticated to a directory service such OpenLDAP It becomes something the very much resembles Active Directory. Samba setup with ldap is an advanced project that is difficult to do.

OpenLDAP – OpenLDAP is the standard open source LDAP directory server installed with most distribution's.

Open-Xchange – Open-Xchange formally known as SUSE Openexchange or SLOX is a MS exchange replacement that offers shared calendaring contacts and tasks. Open-Xchange also uses OpenLdAP as its back end directory server. Open-Xchange also come with a very nice web based client. For an extra $20 you can also pick up Oxlook an un open software addon that allows Outlook 2000 and up to connect to Open-Xchange.

  • Postfix is an email server
  • Cyrus IMAP allow imap services though Posfix
  • Spam Assassin is a highly excepted standared when it comes to spam protection.
  • ClamAV is email server win32 antivirus protection solution
  • Webmin is a web-based system administration tool.
  • Bind = A DNS Server
  • AVA-ADM – My Administration tool developed in PHP.

AVA-SBS installs an configures everything with only the need of answering around 10 questions ( most of which are already answered for you ).
