Zimbra™ Collaboration Suite Single Server Installation Network Edition : Overview of Installation Process

Overview of Installation Process
When you run the install script, the Zimbra install verifies that the correct prerequisite packages are available to be installed.
Zimbra Core installs the libraries, utilities, and monitoring tools.
Zimbra LDAP installs the OpenLDAP software, which provides open source LDAP directory services.
Zimbra MTA installs the Postfix open source MTA, the Clam AntiVirus antivirus engine, the SpamAssassin junk mail filter, and the Amavisd-New content filter.
Zimbra Store installs the mailbox server, including Jetty, the servlet container for the Zimbra server.
Zimbra Spell installs the Aspell open source spelling checker.
Zimbra Apache is installed automatically when Zimbra Spell or Zimbra Convertd is installed.
zimbra-convertd.   The default is to install one zimbra-convertd on each zimbra-store server.  But only one zimbra-convertd needs to be present in a deployment depending on size of ZCS environment.
Zimbra SNMP installs the SNMP package for monitoring. This package is optional.
Zimbra Logger installs tools for syslog aggregation and reporting. If you do not install Logger the server statistics are not captures, and the server statistics section of the administration console does not display.
zimbra-memcached.Memcached is automatically selected when the zimbra-proxy is installed. At least one server must run zimbra-memcached when the proxy is in use. All installed zimbra-proxies can use a single memcached server.
Zimbra Proxy installs the proxy feature which can be configured for POP and IMAP proxy and for reverse proxy HTTP requests.
Zimbra Archiving installs the Zimbra Archiving and Discovery feature. This is an optional feature for ZCS Network Edition that offers the ability to store and search all messages that were delivered to or sent by ZCS. When this package is installed on the mail server, the cross mailbox search function is enabled. Using the Archiving and Discovery feature can trigger additional mailbox license usage. To find out more about Zimbra Archiving and Discovery, contact Zimbra sales.
The Zimbra server configuration is menu driven. The installation menu shows you the default configuration values. The menu displays the logical host name and email domain name [mailhost.example.com] as configured on the computer. You can change any of the values. For single server installs, you must define the administrator’s password, which you use to log on to the administration console, and you specify the location of the Zimbra license xml file.
