Performing a ZCS Single Server Installation > Installing Zimbra Software

Installing Zimbra Software
 
Open an SSH session to the Zimbra server and follow the steps below.
1.
Log in as root to the Zimbra server and cd to the directory where the ZCS archive tar file is saved (cd /var/<tmp>). Type the following commands:
tar xzvf [zcsfullfilename.tgz], to unpack the file.
cd [zcsfullfilename] to change to the correct directory.
./install.sh to begin the installation.
The install.sh script reviews the installation software to verify that the Zimbra packages are available.
 
[root@mailhost tmp]# tar xzvf zcs.tgz
[root@mailhost tmp]# cd zcs-NETWORK-8.0.0_GA_3107.UBUNTU10_64.20101015012627
[root@mailhost tmp/zcs-NETWORK-8.0.0_GA_3107.UBUNTU10_64.20101015012627# ./install.sh
    zimbra-convertd...NOT FOUND
    zimbra-memcached...NOT FOUND
zimbra-proxy...NOT FOUND
zimbra-archiving...NOT FOUND
    zimbra-cluster...NOT FOUND
    zimbra-core...NOT FOUND
Screenshots in this guide are examples of the Zimbra installation script. The actual script may be different.
2.
The installation process checks to see if Sendmail, Postfix, and MySQL software are running. If any of these applications are running, you are asked to disable them. Disabling MySQL is optional but highly recommended. Sendmail and Postfix must be disabled for the ZCS to start correctly.
3.
The Zimbra software agreement displays. Read the agreement and when Do you agree with the terms of the software license agreement? [N] displays, enter Y to continue.
Important: The license agreement displays in three sections, and you must accept each section of the license agreement.
 
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.
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.
4.
Next, the installer checks to see that the prerequisite software is installed. If the prerequisite software packages are not installed, the installation process stops. You must fix the problem and start the installation over. See Other Dependencies in System Requirements for VMware Zimbra Collaboration Server 8.0.

5.
Select the services to be installed on this server. To install ZCS on a single server, enter Y for the ldap, logger, mta, snmp, store, and spell packages. If you use IMAP/POP Proxy, enter Y for the Zimbra proxy package.
Note:
For the cross mailbox search feature, install the Zimbra Archive package. To use the archiving and discovery feature, contact Zimbra sales.
The installer verifies that there is enough room to install ZCS. If there is not, the installation stops.
 
6.
Next, type Y and press Enter to modify the system.
Checks to see if MX record is configured in DNS. The installer checks to see if the hostname is resolvable via DNS. If there is an error, the installer asks if you would like to change the hostname. We recommend that the domain name have an MX record configured in DNS.
