Phone Home

During the first configuration wizard, you can opt-out from contributing to usage statistics. Phone home is used to track all NethServer's installations around the world. Each time a new NethServer is installed, this tool sends some installation details to a central server. The information is stored in a database and used to display nice markers in a Google Map view with number of installation grouped by country and release.


The tool is enabled by default.

To disable it at a later time, run: config setprop phone-home status disabled

If phone home is enabled the details sent are:
  • UUID: stored in /var/lib/yum/uuid
  • RELEASE: from /sbin/e-smith/config getprop sysconfig Version

All the data is used to populate the map.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
