    Additionally....

    Since the clean install works, but I get that ldap error with the restored version, I would think it's a ldap setting that needs to be corrected....?
    What in the zimbra ldap could cause this error...?

    Thanks.

    Default No.

    I'm saying zimbra tries to use mail.domain.com as the domain instead of domain.com. And that it appears that your original dig response shows you have a domain called mail.domain.com instead of domain.com.

    So it looks like your local DNS has a domain called mail.domain.com. Of course this is the servers FQDN and not the domain name. I think this is where all your problems are. That is why when you dig domain.com any it gives you a response from your external DNS server but when you dig mail.domain.com any you get a response from your local DNS server.

    Double check the local dns zone file and see if it is for domain domain.com or mail.domain.com.

    Default My last take.

    IMHO. I think you have a DNS problem and not an LDAP problem. I have tried my best to explain my take on the issue and I'm sorry that we aren't understanding one another. But I'm 99.9% sure it is in your DNS. But I could be wrong.

    So you're saying the issue is in my primary DNS server...? ...Is that what you're calling the "local DNS"...? Or is the "local DNS" referring to the test zimbra server...?

    This is the record file from the primary DNS server:

    $ttl 120
    ; domain.com
    @ IN SOA domain.com. admin.domain.com. (
    2008063074
    120
    120
    604800
    3600 )

    wXw.domain.com. IN A 71.X.XX.180
    mail.domain.com. IN A 71.X.XX.182
    ns1.domain.com. IN A 71.X.XX.180

    XX.X.71.in-addr.arpa. IN NS ns2.domain.com.
    180 IN PTR domain.com.
    182 IN PTR mail.domain.com.
    And the dig from the test zimbra server:
    dig domain.com any

    Default Originally...

    the first time you ran - dig mail.domain.com any instead of dig domain.com any.

    This responded as though you have a zone file somewhere that has a domain called mail.domain.com. Of course your domain is domain.com. I don't know what DNS server has this but it would be the DNS server that is being used as a resolver for the machine from where you ran the command.

    Do you have a zone file other than the one you just posted somewhere?

    mail.domain.com. IN MX 10 mail.domain.com.
    Those are the only zone files on the network...
    As stated the original dig was corrected...but the issue still persists...

    There are only two possible DNS issue that I see. One is that your name servers are listed with public IP addresses, if they are on the local network you should change the result returned to LAN clients to show the internal address (this can be ignored however if your NAT device supports NAT Reflection).
    You can have your name servers return one set of results to public clients, and another set to LAN clients by using views in BIND, I am not sure if/how other DNS servers would do this.

    The other issue is only a possibility that the PTR record for 192.168.1.176 doesn't point to mail.domain.com. But that issue is not going to cause the problem you are having.

    I doubt that your problem is DNS as it looks like everything is returning results that should work.

    I just did some digging into the startup script to see exactly where it is failing for you and here is what I have found:
    The stage that is failing is when it calls the equivalent of
    Code:
    /opt/zimbra/bin/zmprov -l gs $localHostName | grep "zimbraServiceEnabled"
    . "$localHostName" is defined by a function that parses the output of the equivalent of
    Code:
    /opt/zimbra/bin/zmlocalconfig -x -s -q -m shell | grep "zimbra_server_hostname"
    So..... the question that I have for you is what do you get from the output of the following command?
    Code:
    zmprov -l gs `zmhostname` | grep "zimbraServiceEnabled"
    If that fails try typing in the hostname manually.

    Default The last two...

    zone files show you have a domain called mail.domain.com. It appears to me that your domain is actually domain.com. But if you did not change your zimbra install it probably set up a domain called mail.domain.com. Did zimbra create a domain called mail.domain.com in the mail server? Is it listed in the admin GUI?

    ERROR: service.FAILURE (system failure: unable to get config) (cause: javax.naming.NamingException [LDAP: error code 80 - internal error])
    How do I type the hostname manually?

    When I do a zmhostname it shows: mail.domain.com

    Yes Bill, the domain mail.domain.com was automatically created in the new install...the same domain name as the restored version...
