ZCS Single Server Installation > Basic Configuration

Basic Configuration
The default configuration installs the Zimbra-LDAP, the Zimbra-MTA with anti-virus and anti-spam protection, the Zimbra mailbox server, the SNMP monitoring tools (optional), Zimbra-spell (optional), the logger tool (optional), on one server.
The menu driven installation displays the components and their existing default values. You can modify the information during the installation process.
The table below describes the menu options
1) Common Configuration - These are common settings for all servers
The LDAP host name. On a single server installation, this name is the same as the hostname.
LDAP Admin password
Secure interprocess communications
The default is YES. Secure interprocess communications requires that connections between the mail store, and other processes that use Java, use secure communications. It also specifies whether secure communications should be used between the master LDAP server and the replica LDAP servers for replication.
Select the time zone to apply to the default COS. The time zone that should be entered is the time zone that the majority of users in the COS will be located in. The default time zone is PST (Pacific Time).
The default is Enabled. For replica LDAP servers, the status can be changed to Disabled if the database is manually loaded after installation completes.
You can create one domain during installation. Additional domains can be created from the administration console.
The default domain is the fully qualified hostname of the server. If you created a valid mail domain on your DNS server, enter it now. In most cases, you will accept the default.
LDAP Root password
This is the password used by the LDAP replication user to identify itself to the LDAP master and must be the same as the password on the LDAP master server.
This is the password used by the postfix user to identify itself to the LDAP server and must be configured on the MTA server to be the same as the password on the LDAP master server.
LDAP Amavis password
This is the password used by the amavis user to identify itself to the LDAP server and must be configured on the MTA server to be the same as the password on the LDAP server.
The administrator account is created during installation. This account is the first account provisioned on the Zimbra server and allows you to log on to the administration console.
You must set the admin account password. The password is case sensitive and must be a minimum of six characters. The administrator name, mail address, and password are required to log in to the administration console.
Anti-virus quarantine user
A virus quarantine account is automatically created during installation. When AmivisD identifies an email message with a virus, the email is automatically sent to this mailbox. The virus quarantine mailbox is configured to delete messages older than 7 days.
Enable automated spam training
By default, the automated spam training filter is enabled and two mail accounts are created.
1. Spam Training User to receive mail notification about mail that was not marked as junk, but should have been.
2. Non-spam (HAM) Training User to receive mail notification about mail that was marked as junk, but should not have been.
These addresses are automatically configured to work with the spam training filter. The accounts created have a randomly selected name. To recognize what the account is used for, you may want to change this name.
The default port configurations are shown
Web server mode — Can be HTTP, HTTPS, Mixed, Both or Redirect.
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 an HTTPS connection.
Use spell checker server, default Yes (if installed)
Spell server URL: http://<example.com>:7780/aspell.php
Enable version update checks. ZCS automatically checks to see if a new ZCS update is available. The default is TRUE.

Enable Spamassassin — Default is enabled.
Enable ClamAV — Default is enabled.
Notification address for AV alerts — Sets the notification address for AV alerts. You can either accept the default or create a new address. If you create a new address, remember to provision this address from the admin console.
Note:
If the virus notification address does not exist and your host name is the same as the domain name on the Zimbra server, the virus notifications queue in the Zimbra MTA server cannot be delivered.
Bind password for Postfix LDAP user. Automatically set.This is the password used by the postfix user to identify itself to the LDAP server and must be configured on the MTA server to be the same as the password on the LDAP master server.
