    Welcome to the forums

    Are you receiving this error when you attempt to install Zimbra Server ? If that is correct and your server is behind a firewall on a private IP address you will need to setup a Wiki :: Split DNS Architecture.

    My named.conf file appears to have no entries. should i go ahead and copy whats in the wiki and replace domain names where necessary?

    Code:
    su - zimbra
    zmcontrol -v
    so we can see which O/S you are running on.

    Are you able to ping other domains like google.com or yahoo.com within the server? If not, you may have to check the /etc/resolv.conf file

    If you don't have /etc/named.conf are you sure you have BIND installed? Also I have seen some OS's put it in some crazy places... you might want to check the file list for the package you installed in your OS's package manger.

    Why does it fail to install? There's no reason why you should have problems installing BIND but if you are then I'd suggest you ask on the CentOS forums for some help.
