With this virtual machine based at SUSE SLES 11 SP3 we give you the chance to test Zarafa in a preconfigured environment. The VM include the latest version from Zarafa and Z-Push. Also is an OpenLDAP server with demo users and a demo group and a webbased (phpLDAPadmin) frontend included. The phpLDAPadmin have as bonus fitted Zarafa templates for easy administration.

The appliance is for Virtualbox useage optimized, an import in VMware player or ESX is also possible.

For this VM there is a costless technical onlinetraining. At this moment only available in german language - but we work on a translation. The link for the german training is http://mwelter.github.io/zarafa-quickstart-sles-DE/ [1]

The VM can be downloaded at this link: http://download.zarafa.com [2] or directly in SuSE Studio https://susestudio.com/a/uxnmAM/official-zarafa-collaboration-plattform-vm [3]
