    Default Two problems with 3.0.1 release

    I've done an upgrade to the latest release, as usual it went smoothly. However there are two minor problems. During the install I got a message about there being no MX records for my system, I run a local BIND and there is an MX in BIND for my server and dig returns the correct information. I ignored the warning and continued to run the upgrade without problems. Is this a problem with the install script?

    To troubleshoot the above MX record problem I ran zmprov to check the domain was already in existence and it is but zmprov gives the following message when run:
    Code:
    zmprov gad -v
    java.net.UnknownHostException: A: A
            at java.net.InetAddress.getLocalHost(InetAddress.java:1308)
            at com.zimbra.cs.localconfig.LC.<clinit>(LC.java:160)
            at com.zimbra.cs.localconfig.KnownKey.<clinit>(KnownKey.java:39)
            at com.zimbra.cs.localconfig.LocalConfig.verify(LocalConfig.java:337)
            at com.zimbra.cs.localconfig.LocalConfig.<init>(LocalConfig.java:185)
            at com.zimbra.cs.localconfig.LocalConfig.readConfig(LocalConfig.java:360)
            at com.zimbra.cs.localconfig.LocalConfig.<clinit>(LocalConfig.java:365)
            at com.zimbra.cs.localconfig.Main.main(Main.java:116)
    java.net.UnknownHostException: A: A
            at java.net.InetAddress.getLocalHost(InetAddress.java:1308)
            at com.zimbra.cs.localconfig.LC.<clinit>(LC.java:160)
            at com.zimbra.cs.util.Zimbra.toolSetup(Zimbra.java:186)
            at com.zimbra.cs.util.Zimbra.toolSetup(Zimbra.java:181)
            at com.zimbra.cs.util.Zimbra.toolSetup(Zimbra.java:177)
            at com.zimbra.cs.account.ProvUtil.main(ProvUtil.java:1409)
    It then goes on to display the domains on this server. I also checked with 'zmprov gas -v' and that also displays the server correctly. In fact, zmprov seems to give this message for every command I tried.

    Looks like it can't resolve the localhost's name or address. /etc/hosts problem?

    I don't think so, I've had my host file set correctly since I first installed Zimbra:

    Code:
    127.0.0.1	localhost.localdomain	localhost
    fixedIP          FQDN hostname
    I've also tried 'host hostname' and that returns the correct IP address. I've setup BIND as per these instructions and it's been working fine. Zimbra is working but it was just the initial warning that threw me. BIND also seems to be working OK as my DNS server, not being an expert I can't see anything obviously wrong with my setup.

    What hosts do you have configured? Could be it's got one listed it can't get details on. What do you get from just zmprov gas?

    Default The inevitable reboot fixed it!

    Something odd seems to have happened to my system and I'm not sure what. If I do 'zmprov gas' it returns the error & the correct hostname, in fact every command seems to produce the correct results except the hostname command, that just returns a value of 'A'. I'll do some more digging and see if I can find out what's happening, I'll post back to this thread if I find the answer or (more likely) i need some more help.

    Just as an idle thought, I don't suppose the fact I ignored the zimbra warning about there being no MX record would have made the install do anything odd to my system?

    [edit]
    As per the title, al the config files were correct and a restart of BIND did nothing so a rebbot was in order and voila - everything's back to normal. Now I suppose it's a chicken and egg question, did the problem happen after this mornings power-on and cause the zimbra install to not find the MX record or did the install routine change something it shouldn't have and cause the subsequent 'missing' hostname?
