Managing Server Settings
A server is a machine that has one or more of the Zimbra service packages installed. During the installation, the Zimbra server is automatically registered on the LDAP server.
In the administration console, you can view the current status of all the servers that are configured with Zimbra software, and you can edit or delete existing server records. You cannot add servers directly to LDAP. The ZCS Installation program must be used to add new servers because the installer packages are designed to register the new host at the time of installation.
The server settings that can be viewed from the admin console, Configure Servers link for a specific server include:
*
General information about the service host name, and LMTP advertised name and bind address, and the number of threads that can simultaneously process data source imports.
*
*
Authentication types enabled for the server, setting a Web mail MTA hostname different from global. Setting relay MTA for external delivery, and enabling DNS lookup if required. Enable the Milter Server and set the bind address.
*
Enabling POP and IMAP and setting the port numbers for a server. If IMAP/POP proxy is set up, making sure that the port numbers are configured correctly.
*
*
IP Address Bindings. If the server has multiple IP addresses, IP Address binding allows you to specify which interface to bind to.
*
*
Backup and Restore configuration for the server. When backup and restore is configured for the server, this overrides the global backup and restore setting.
Servers inherit global settings if those values are not set in the server configuration. Settings that can be inherited from the Global configuration include MTA, SMTP, IMAP, POP, anti-virus, and anti-spam configurations.
