Multiple-Server Installation > Installing Zimbra Mailbox Server

Installing Zimbra Mailbox Server
The zimbra-store package can be installed with the LDAP server, the MTA server, or as a separate mailbox server. You can have more than one mailbox server and new mailbox servers can be added at any time.
The Zimbra license file can be installed on one of the mailbox servers during the installation. If you do not have a license file, you can install it from the administration console when the ZCS install is complete. See Zimbra License Requirements for ZCS Network Edition.
Note:
1.
Follow steps 1 through 4 in Starting the Installation Process to log on to the server as root and unpack the Zimbra software.
2.
Type Y and press Enter to install the zimbra-logger (optional and only on one mailbox server), zimbra-store, and zimbra-spell (optional) packages. When zimbra-spell is installed, the zimbra-apache package also gets installed. In the following screen shot example, the packages to be installed are emphasized.

Type 4 and set the password for the administrator account. The password is case sensitive and must be a minimum of six characters. During the install process, the admin account is provisioned on the mailbox store server. You log on to the administration console with this password.
Note:
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 a HTTPS connection.
All modes use SSL encryption for back-end administrative traffic.
Enable version update checks and Enable version update notifications are set to TRUE. ZCS automatically checks for the latest ZCS software updates and notifies the account that is configured in Version update notification email. You can modify this later from the administration console.
Set either or both of these to TRUE if you are going to set up zimbra-proxy. The zimbra-proxy ports display in the menu when these are set to TRUE.

Review the Default Class of Service Configuration settings. If you want to change the COS default configuration of these features, type the number (6) for the Default Class of Service Configuration. Then type the corresponding number for the feature to be enabled or disabled. The default COS settings are adjusted to match.
10.
When the mailbox server is configured, return to the Main menu and type a to apply the configuration changes. Press Enter to save the configuration data.
11.
When Save Configuration data to a file appears, press Enter.

The installation of the mailbox server is complete.
