Recommend minimum - 4 GB RAM
10 GB free disk space for software and logs (SATA or SCSI for performance, and RAID/Mirroring for redundancy)

*There are known issues using ZCS on Macs with the Intel Core Duo. See the Release Note.
Note: We expect that the 6.0.x series of ZCS will be the last release supported on RHEL4. Based on this expectation, we suggest that new RHEL systems use RHEL5.
Note: Mac OS X 10.5 and 10.6 are not supported. Also, we expect that the 6.0.x series of ZCS will be the last release supported with Mac OS X 10.4.x.
Note: We expect that the 6.0.x series of ZCS will be the last release supported with Ubuntu 6.0.6.1 LTS.
In addition to supporting the operating systems listed above for the Network Edition, other OS versions are available for the Open Source Edition. Check the Zimbra Open Source Downloads page on www.zimbra.com.
