With Univention Corporate Server (UCS) 3.1 the installation of Zarafa becomes easier than before. The latest release of UCS provides Univention App Center, an easy, secure and uniform way to install software solutions on this enterprise Linux distribution with its sophisticated webbased management system for identity and infrastructure management and its Active Directory compatible functionanilty through Samba 4.

Users still running Zarafa on UCS 3.0 can upgrade to UCS 3.1 by following the steps outlined in the Zarafa4UCS Upgrade Guide to UCS 3.1 with Univention App Center. Afterwards, Zarafa can be updated to the latest version available in Univention App Center.

No installation howto is needed anymore to install Zarafa on UCS. Just open the "App Center" module in the management system and select Zarafa. The App Center will install the Zarafa packages and the UCS integration package Zarafa4UCS and the result will be a pre-configured out-of-the-box working Zarafa installation.

Univention App Center is part of Univention Corporate server. Besides Zarafa, it offers other software solutions, e.g. for document management. A first glance is given in the online demo.
