Zimbra™ Collaboration Suite Single Server Installation Network Edition : Basic Configuration

Basic Configuration
The default configuration installs the Zimbra-LDAP, the Zimbra-MTA with anti-virus and anti-spam protection, the Zimbra mailbox server, the SNMP monitoring tools (optional), Zimbra-spell (optional), the logger tool (optional), and the Zimbra proxy (optional) on one server.
The menu driven installation displays the components and their existing default values. You can modify the information during the installation process.
The table below describes the menu options
1) Common Configuration - These are common settings for all servers
The LDAP host name. On a single server installation, this name is the same as the hostname.
LDAP Admin password
Require secure interprocess communications
By default, startTLS is YES. When startTLS is enabled, there is a secure communication between amavis and postfix and the LDAP server.
If this is disabled, ZCS disables the use of startTLS with the LDAP server.
Select the time zone to apply to the default COS. The time zone that should be entered is the time zone that the majority of users in the COS will be located in. The default time zone is PST (Pacific Time).
You can create one domain during installation and additional domains can be created from the administration console.
The default domain is the fully qualified hostname of the server. If you created a valid mail domain on your DNS server, enter it now. In most cases, you will accept the default.
LDAP Root password
This is the password used by the LDAP replication user to identify itself to the LDAP master and must be the same as the password on the LDAP master server.
This is the password used by the postfix user to identify itself to the LDAP server and must be configured on the MTA server to be the same as the password on the LDAP master server.
LDAP Amavis password
This is the password used by the amavis user to identify itself to the LDAP server and must be configured on the MTA server to be the same as the password on the LDAP server.
LDAP Nginx password
This is the password used by the nginx user to identify itself to the LDAP server and must be configured on the MTA server to be the same as the password on the LDAP server.
The administrator account is created during installation. This account is the first account provisioned on the Zimbra server and allows you to log on to the administration console.
You must set the admin account password. The password is case sensitive and must be a minimum of six characters. The administrator name, mail address, and password are required to log in to the administration console.
Enable automated spam training
By default, the automated spam training filter is enabled and two mail accounts are created.
1. Spam Training User to receive mail notification about mail that was not marked as junk, but should have been.
2. Non-spam (HAM) Training User to receive mail notification about mail that was marked as junk, but should not have been.
These addresses are automatically configured to work with the spam training filter. The accounts created have a randomly selected name. To recognize what the account is used for, you may want to change this name.
The Global Documents account is automatically created when ZCS is installed. The Global Documents account holds the templates and the default Documents Notebook. The Documents feature is enabled for the COS or for individual accounts
The default port configurations are shown
Web server mode — Can be HTTP, HTTPS, Mixed, Both or Redirect.
Mixed mode uses HTTPS for logging in and HTTP for normal session traffic
Both mode means that an HTTP session stays HTTP, including during the login phase, and an HTTPS session remains HTTPS throughout, including the login phase.
Redirect mode redirects any users connecting via HTTP to an HTTPS connection.
Use spell checker server, default Yes (if installed)
Spell server URL: http://<example.com>:7780/aspell.php
Unset (Network Edition). The license file must be saved to the server in order to add it to ZCS during the install process. Enter the name and location for the Zimbra license file to have the license installed as part of the installation.
Enable version update checks. ZCS automatically checks to see if a new ZCS update is available. The default is TRUE.
Enable version update notifications. This enables automatic notification when updates are available when this is set to TRUE.
Version update notification email. This is the email address of the account to be notified when updates are available. The default is to send the notification to the admin’s account.
Version update source email. This is the email address of the account that sends the email notification. The default is the admin’s account.
Note: The software update information can be viewed from the Administration Console Tools Overview pane.
MTA Auth host — This is configured automatically if the MTA authentication server host is on the same server, but must be configured if the authentication server is not on the MTA.
Enable Spamassassin — Default is enabled.
Enable ClamAV — Default is enabled.
Notification address for AV alerts — Sets the notification address for AV alerts. You can either accept the default or create a new address. If you create a new address, remember to provision this address from the admin console.
Note: If the virus notification address does not exist and your host name is the same as the domain name on the Zimbra server, the virus notifications queue in the Zimbra MTA server cannot be delivered.
Bind password for Postfix LDAP user. Automatically set.This is the password used by the postfix user to identify itself to the LDAP server and must be configured on the MTA server to be the same as the password on the LDAP master server.
Bind password for Amavis LDAP user. Automatically set. This is the password used by the amavis user to identify itself to the LDAP server and must be configured on the MTA server to be the same as the password on the LDAP server.
5) zimbra-snmp (optional)
Enable SNMP notifications — The default is Yes.
Enable SMTP notification — The default is Yes.
When installed, it is automatically enabled. Logs from the hosts are sent to the mailbox server where zimbra-logger is installed and the information is used to generate the statistics graphs and for message tracing.
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.
This menu section lists major new features for the ZCS release and whether the feature is enabled or not. When you change the feature setting during ZCS installation, you change the default COS settings Having this control, lets you decide when to introduce new features to your users.
10) Enable default backup schedule
For Network Edition only, sets the schedule for Backup session to run as a full backup every Sunday at 1 a.m. and as incremental on the other days at 1 a.m.
When the installation and configuration is complete, if this is set to Yes, the Zimbra server is automatically started.
