    Default Network Edition Release for openSUSE 10

    i just noticed there is a NETWORK release for openSUSE 10 under http://downloads.zimbra.com/index.html . but there is only SUSE ES 9 (besides RHEL4 and OSX) mentioned in the requirements section on your website. can you recommend this setup for production use or is this just a download for testing.

    I'd recommend using one of the Enterprise operating systems, the SuSE 10 will not be supported for much longer (I can't remember off-hand what the timescale is). There will be a SuSE ES 10 in the not too distant future, I think that's when the SuSE 10 will go - but don't hold me to that.

    Default RHEL4 remote deploy

    i had exact the same feeling about this. and i really like to use a enterprise linux. but we like run the network edition on a dedicated server at www.strato.de (the second biggest hoster in europe). i can only chose between debian 3.1, openSUSE 10 and SUSE Professional 9 and fedora 3.
    the problem is that they do not offer remote hands, and even if they had i think their machines don't have any cd-rom drives where you could insert the RHEL4 installation cds. but i have a serial console and a recovery console at last. so if anybody have some ideas how to install RHEL4 (or SUSE ES) on a remote machine without cd-rom please post some hints.

    My suggestion would be to find another hosting provider, I'm sure there must be some around the world that provide the service you need. There should be no reason you're restricted to German suppliers unless there's something I can't think of.

    the company i work for is sposored by this provider. so they don't have to pay for a 109€/month server. otherwise i would choose another one.
    and i think there must be some way to hands-off deploy RHEL4.

    Ahhh, that's the thing I didn't think of.

    I'm afraid that installing RHEL remotely in this environment isn't my field of experience. I'm sure someone in the forums will be able to give you a more useful answer.
