Zimbra™ Collaboration Suite Single Server Installation - Open Source : Final Set-Up

Final Set-Up
After the Zimbra servers are configured, the following functions must be configured:
If logger is installed, set up the syslog configuration files to enable server statistics to display on the administration console, and enable the logger monitor host. The server statistics includes information about the message count, message volume, and anti-spam and anti-virus activity.
ZCS ships a default zimbra user with a disabled password. ZCS requires access to this account via ssh public key authentication. On most operating systems this combination is okay, but if you have modified pam rules to disallow any ssh access to disabled accounts then you must define a password for the zimbra UNIX account. This will allow ssh key authentication for checking remote queues. See the Zimbra wiki article, Mail Queue Monitoring.
Set up the ssh keys.
To populate the ssh keys, as Zimbra user (su-zimbra). Type zmupdateauthkeys and press Enter. The key is updated on
/opt/zimbra/.ssh/authorized_keys.
