    Default Zimbra server in https mode

    Hello,
    After install of zimbra OS 5.0.11GA on Ubuntu Server, I followed this wiki Ubuntu 8.04 LTS Server (Hardy Heron) Install Guide - Zimbra :: Wiki
    and set up https mail mode.

    Everything works, except, when user is creating share on object, system generates http:// url instead of https:// url. My zimbra server is behind Apache2 Reverse proxy and all mail.domain.com requests on http ar redirected to https. Shares could be opened with https.

    Should I bother on this, or I can leave it as is?

    Make sure you set zimbraPublicServiceHostname, zimbraPublicServiceProtocol and zimbraPublicServicePort when using a reverse proxy. That will allow public REST URL's to be generated properly.

    Thanks, brian, for tips. Relying on docs, I understood, that making configuration changes it is preferred to be done by executing zimbra cli commands, and then needed setup is provided. Checking zmprov gs zimbraserver, I could not find such keys in a list. Is it ok to add them manually by zpmrov ms? I expected, that changing to https mail mode it should be done by script.

    And

    In multi server installation, should it be done on Zimbra proxy as well? When I make changes to any zimbra multi-server locally by zmprov command, I change settings on that server. There is another group - zmlocalconfig. And the third possibility is to do changes on Admin GUI. So in my case I assume, that changes with zmprov gs are something similar to changes made in admin gui on specific server properties. Ho such changes should be made by cli for Global settings?

    All three attributes are availble on a domain or in globalconfig, they are not server attributes. zimbraPublicServiceName is currently exposed in the Admin console but the other 2 would need to be set via the zmprov cli.

    hope this helps.

    From that I understood, that it is enough to set such attributes from mailbox server CLI, even if they are not present in zpmrov key lists (to be added by CLI), and no other servers should be touched with zmprov command.

    Other part of Q - if I change anything in Global Settings form Admin GUI, where does these changes are saved? For example publicServiceHostname. Are these settings replicated to all servers in a stack?

    essentially it's stored on the Zimbra LDAP Server, and in the case of publicServiceHostname, it's set in the domain dn. All Zimbra servers within your LDAP namespace have access to the changed data.

    global attributes are stored in ldap, if you set publicServiceHostname as a global attribute each domain within your install will inherit this attribute unless it specifically set to something else on the domain object. just to be clear publicService* attributes are applicable only to the global and domain configs, they are not available and do not make sense on server objects.

    You can always refer to /opt/zimbra/conf/attrs/zimbra-attrs.xml for a list of attributes and on which config sections they can be applied.
