I think the problem I'm having is related. (ClearOS Pro, 64-bit, recent fresh first-time install, updated)
I don't recall if the initial configuration hung up, but I did have a problem trying to create groups and accounts. That was over a month ago, and gateway functions were ok, so I didn't pursue.
Now however I would like to run openvpn server. All related apps (certificates manager, groups, users) are inactive; message is "Before configuring user and group accounts" I have to set up Account Synchronization. I thought I had specified that during the boot install. Setting in the web ui fails (trying to set Standalone, other modes fail the same way) with the message
str2entry: invalid value for attributeType objectClass #0 (syntax 184.108.40.206.4.1.14220.127.116.11.38)
which seems to be related to openldap, which is installed and up to date per yum update openldap.
I'm tempted to do a fresh install, but I don't know how much time it will take to get the gateway working again.
Can I buy a clue? Just kidding, I already made the mistake of opening a ticket, the support group replied with an irrelevant suggestion and cited $250 per incident cost. Now I have no idea why I bought Pro
