Xandros Server: Pre-Packaged Power, Centralized - page 5
YALS--Yet Another Linux Server?
Many of the servers in xMC provide wizards to simplify initial setup. For example, configuring a DNS server in xMC provides helpful wizards for creating forward and reverse lookup zones, handy dialogs for populating those zones, and so on. Figure 4 shows the first dialog in the wizard for creating a Forward zone.
After you've modified any server, clicking the main entry for that server in the left pane displays a dialog that enables you to start, stop, or restart that server manually. A convenient selector also lets you change each server from being started manually to starting automatically at boot time. As you'd expect, this creates the right symlinks in the /etc/rc2.d directory (the default run level for most Debian-based distributions).
Though I understand that Xandros has partnered with Scalix to give
users a powerful collaborative environment required by most
businesses, I was surprised to note that xMC doesn't provide a default
tool for configuring Sendmail, their default Mail Transfer
Agent. Other than that, xMC provides a complete and usable solution
for server, setup, configuration, and general system monitoring.
