Multiple-Server Installation : Starting the Installation Process on the Mac Server

Starting the Installation Process on the Mac Server
Note: Mac OS X 10.4.x. is supported in ZCS 6.0.x, but Mac OS X 10.5 and Mac OS X 10.6 are not supported.
The following steps are performed on each Mac server to be installed.
1.
Click on the dmg file to open the file and click ZCS.mpkg to open the Zimbra install package. The Apple installer opens and verifies that the server is ready to install the Zimbra Collaboration Suite. Click Continue.
2.
3.
The Zimbra Software License Agreement is displayed. Read the agreement and click Continue. A popup screen appears asking you to accept the terms of the license agreement to continue. Click Agree.
4.
5.
The Easy Install ... dialog displays. Select the services to be installed on this server.
To select which services to install, click Customize. Deselect those packages you do not want installed. See Planning for the Installation for information about the packages. Click Install to proceed.
A progress bar shows the Zimbra packages being installed. When The software was successfully installed dialog displays, click Close.
6.
Open the Apple Terminal and log in as root. Type sudo /bin/bash. Enter your root password, if asked.
7.
Type cd /opt/zimbra/libexec.
8.
Type ls to see the packages in the directory.
9.
Type ./zmsetup.pl. This starts the ZCS configuration. A temporary log file is created and the server port configurations are checked for conflicts. 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 Zimbra Collaboration Suite to start correctly.
10.
If no conflicts are found, the Main menu displays the default entries for the Zimbra component you are installing. To expand the menu to see the configuration values, type X and press Enter. The main menu expands to display configuration details for the package being installed. Values that require further configuration are marked with asterisks (*).
