Description Sönke Schwardt-Krummrich univentionstaff 2019-04-09 20:34:47 CEST
When installing a domaincontroller slave the customers are not aware of the fact that for school servers the school has to be created on the domaincontroller master and the computer name of the school server has to be specified beforehand. Currently, more and more slaves are being unintentionally installed as central slaves, which means that the domaincontroller slave systems have to be completely reinstalled (among other manual steps).

If the credentials for joining have been specified in the installer (system setup), the credentials should be used to check whether the master is a UCS@school domain. If this is the case, an additional page in system setup is displayed to the customer asking whether the slave should become a central slave or a school server. If the selection of the customer *does not* match the LDAP settings (e.g. school is missing), a warning with instructions is displayed.

If no join credentials are specified by the customer because the join is to take place later, the installer could try to determine whether the master recognized in the DNS is a UCS@school system and then point out again that a school must be created BEFORE for school servers (concrete instructions should be included).

Comited to branch:

Please reopen for build etc

I did not added any DNS entry for now. I think we should track/discuse that in a separate bug. (Also the time got away from me)

An additional page has been added to the system setup wizard, which is only displayed if
- the role "Domaincontroller Slave" was selected during the installation AND
- Join credentials were specified for the DC master AND
- the DC Master is a UCS@school *MULTI* server environment.

On this page the user can tell the installer what she/he wants to use this system for (edu slave, administration slave, central slave).
When clicking Next, system setup checks whether the LDAP configuration matches the user's selection. If there are differences, the the user is notified of this with a popup. There is always a choice for the user to continue with the installation process if necessary. However, in this case UCS@school will not be installed/wrongly, which then requires a reinstallation of the system to get the correct installation.

I fixed the CSS style and adapted the texts and translations (see attached video).
