Multiple-Server Installation : Starting the Installation Process

Starting the Installation Process
For the latest Zimbra software download, go to www.zimbra.com. Save the Zimbra Collaboration Suite tar file to the computer from which you are installing the software.
For servers other than Mac servers, step 1 through step 4 are performed for each server to be installed.
For Mac servers, see Starting the Installation Process on the Mac Server.
1.
Log in as root to the Zimbra server and cd to the directory where the Zimbra Collaboration Suite archive file is saved (cd /var/<tmp>/var). Type the following commands.
tar xzvf [zcs.tgz] to unpack the file
cd [zcs filename] to change to the correct directory. The file name includes the release and build date.
./install.sh to begin the installation.
Note: When installing ZCS, you can also install the Zimbra license file. Copy the file to the mail server and to begin the installation, type ./install.sh -l (/path/ZCSLicense.xml)
Note: As the installation proceeds, press Enter to accept the defaults that are shown in brackets [ ] or enter the appropriate answer for your configuration.
The screen shots are examples of the Zimbra installation script.

2.
The installation process checks to see if Sendmail, Postfix, and MySQL software are running. If any application is running, you are asked to disable it. The default is Yes to disable the applications. Disabling MySQL is optional, but highly recommended. Sendmail and Postfix must be disabled for the Zimbra Collaboration Suite to start correctly.
3.
The Zimbra software agreement is displayed and includes a link to the license terms for the Zimbra Collaboration Suite. Read the agreement and when Do you agree with the terms of the software license agreement? [N] displays, enter Y to continue.
 
IMPORTANT-READ CAREFULLY: BY DOWNLOADING, INSTALLING, OR USING THE SOFTWARE, YOU (THE INDIVIDUAL OR LEGAL ENTITY) AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS OF THIS END USER LICENSE AGREEMENT (EULA). IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THE TERMS OF THIS EULA, YOU MUST NOT DOWNLOAD, INSTALL, OR USE THE SOFTWARE, AND YOU MUST DELETE OR RETURN THE UNUSED SOFTWARE TO THE VENDOR FROM WHICH YOU ACQUIRED IT WITHIN THIRTY (30) DAYS AND REQUEST A REFUND OF THE LICENSE FEE, IF ANY, THAT YOU PAID FOR THE SOFTWARE.
EVALUATION LICENSE. If You are licensing the Software for evaluation purposes, your use of the Software is only permitted in a non production environment and for the period limited by the Software License Key. Notwithstanding any other provision in this EULA, an Evaluation License of the Software is provided AS-IS without support or warranty of any kind, expressed or implied.

Upon expiration or termination of a Subscription, You shall promptly cease use of the Software and product documentation and destroy (and certify to VMware in writing the fact of such destruction), or return to VMware all copies of the Software and product documentation then in Your possession or control.
4.
Next, the installer checks to see that the prerequisite software is installed. If NPTL, sudo, libidn, cURL, fetchmail, GMP or compat-libstdc++- are not installed, the install process quits. You must fix the problem and start the installation again.
Note: Before the Main menu is displayed, the installer checks to see if the hostname is resolvable via DNS and if there is an error asks you if would like to change the hostname. The domain name should have an MX record configured in DNS.
