    Default ldap error while restoring open zcs

    hi,

    we have been trying to restore a backup of zcs on another system( for testing) ..

    we have copied the backup files to the new system and renamed them as the new files

    after that we run the zimbra installation again

    but keep getting errors with ldap after setting defaults from the config.save file

    the screenshot and installation copies are attached

    Does the server you've restored your ZImbra to have a) valid DNS A & MX records? b) does it have the same hostname as the original server? Search the forums for details on how to restore (or move, it's the same process) your system to a new server.
    Regards

    yes ... the DNS A & MX records and the hostname are the same original server.. we have checked -- all the other settings seem to be the same as well

    From both hosts please
    Code:
    cat /etc/hosts
    cat /etc/resolv.conf
    dig yourdomain mx
    dig yourdomain any
    host `hostname` <- note backticks and not single quotes

    Hope both zimbra versions of backup and restore are same? If not try the same version of your backup to restore

    Try adding your hostname after your FQDN, for example:

    10.10.3.1 mail.domain.com mail
