    Default error Resolving MX record

    hi ..........
    this is debasmita and am installing zcs 6.0 on linux platform.

    dns server and Zimbra are installed in the same system itself with IP and FQDN

    configuration of /etc/hosts
    # Do not remove the following line, or various programs
    # that require network functionality will fail.       localhost.localdomain   localhost       mailadmin
    #vi /etc/resolve.conf

    I have set up the same system as DNS server as well as Zimbra admin server....
    configuration of /etc/named.conf
    zone "" IN {
            type master;
            file "";
            allow-update { none; };
    zone "" IN {
            type master;
            file "";
            allow-update { none; };
    configuration of forward and reverse zone files:
    #cd /var/named/chroot/var/named
    # vi
    $TTL    86400
    @               IN SOA (
                                            42              ; serial (d. adams)
                                            3H              ; refresh
                                            15M             ; retry
                                            1W              ; expiry
                                            1D )            ; minimum
                            IN              NS
                            IN              MX  10
    mailadmin               IN A  
    # vi
    $TTL    86400
    @       IN      SOA  (
                                          1997022700 ; Serial
                                          28800      ; Refresh
                                          14400      ; Retry
                                          3600000    ; Expire
                                          86400 )    ; Minimum
                  IN      NS
    2             IN      PTR
    # service named restart
    now the comaands
    dig any
    dig mx
    are also giving the desired o/p.

    but while installing zcs 6.0 it is giving the error as

    its getting installed and mails are getting delivered in lan within two different domains but its not getting delivered to gmail or yahoomail. Moreover while am checking the MX record from within the Zimbra Admin console ... its showing
    Failed to retrieve MX records for domain

    Please provide a solution.

    THANKS in Advance

    debasmita you have setup MX records for not which it looks like is what you have configured as the domain in Zimbra. You might want to try setting up your zimbra server to have as the domain (unless you specifically want to be the domain in which case your DNS is totally wrong...
