Managing ZCS Configuration > General Information

General Information
In this tab you configure the following:
*
The default time zone for the domain. If a time zone is configured in a COS or for an account, the domain time zone setting is ignored.
*
*
Inbound SMTP host name. If your MX records point to a spam-relay or any other external non-zimbra server, enter the name of the server here.
*
Default Class of Service (COS) for the domain. This COS is automatically assigned to accounts created on the domain if another COS is not set.
*
Domain status. The domain status is active in the normal state. Users can log in and mail is delivered. Changing the status can affect the status for accounts on the domain also. The domain status is displayed on the Domain General tab. Domain status can be set as follows :
Active. Active is the normal status for domains. Accounts can be created and mail can be delivered. Note: If an account has a different status setting than the domain setting, the account status overrides the domain status.
Closed. When a domain status is marked as closed, Login for accounts on the domain is disabled and messages are bounced. The closed status overrides an individual account’s status setting.
Locked. When a domain status is marked as locked, users cannot log in to check their email, but email is still delivered to the accounts. If an account’s status setting is marked as maintenance or closed, the account’s status overrides the domain status setting.
Maintenance. When the domain status is marked as maintenance, users cannot log in and their email is queued at the MTA. If an account’ status setting is marked as closed, the account’s status overrides the domain status setting.
Suspended. When the domain status is marked as suspended, users cannot log in, their email is queued at the MTA, and accounts and distribution lists cannot be created, deleted, or modified. If an account’s status setting is marked as closed, the account’s status overrides the domain status setting.
Shutdown. When the domain status is changed to Shutdown, the server is doing major and lengthy maintenance work on the domain. For example, renaming the domain or moving LDAP entries. Modification and deletion of the domain can only be done internally by the server when it is safe to release the domain, they cannot be done in the admin console or using zmprov.
Setting up a Public Service Host Name
You can configure each domain with the public service host name to be used for REST URLs. This is the URL that is used when sharing email folders and Briefcase folders, as well as sharing task lists, address books, and calendars.
When users share a ZCS folder, the default is to create the URL with the Zimbra server hostname and the Zimbra service host name. This is displayed as http://server.domain.com/service/home/username/sharedfolder. The attributes are generated as follows:
*
*
*
When you configure a public service host name, this name is used instead of the server/service name, as http://publicservicename.domain.com/home/username/sharedfolder. The attributes to be used are:
*

You can use another FQDN as long as the name has a proper DNS entry to point at ‘server’ both internally and externally.
