Fix to share: ZCS 7.1.1 on Ubuntu 10.04.1 64bit
It's same here when I install a clean copy of ZCS 7.1.1 64 bit on the new installed Ubuntu Server 10.04.1 64 bit OS. I checked the threads in forum for the solution of "zmconfigd is not running." , and finally got the light to go my way!
Even it's not so smooth like others, but the server is working now~ (at least without any error and all zimbra services are running properly) I will go to configure it and creating the a/c by script.
Before that, I would like to share my experience for those who are installing ZCS 7.1.1 64bit on Ubuntu Server 10.04.1 64bit, as there is a slight thing need to note.
Yes, even don't know WHY the netcat is required by ZCS to make the zmconfigd working properly, but we have to follow this *undocumented* rule~ (I agree with someone that, the guys from vmware/zimbra seems didn't fully tested the latest 7.1.1 on Ubuntu 10.04.1, well-document or note/tips can decrease many threads here the people asking why getting the zmconfigd issue!)
OK, let's focus on the right track~ Because of Ubuntu 10.04.1 has a pre-installed version of netcat, in which it's NOT the traditional one netcat, it's the "netcat-openbsd" version~ So you have to uninstall it first, and then install the traditonal netcat:
apt-get remove netcat-openbsd
apt-get install netcat
Remark: As the default 'netcat' is the traditional one, so just type 'netcat' is OK, and the 'netcat-traditional' will be installed as well~
I tried to start-up the Zimbra t this moment, but it's worst than before... many services can't start-up... so you should uninstall the zimbra, and then re-install it once again, this time all of the services should be able to start up successfully!
This is my real case and it may not the only way to do so, if you have other way can make it working, please share the procedure here~
BTW, the new version has the vmware logo... it's good to represent the ownership of ZCS... but the interface for admin and webmail on black.... oh, really ugly!!!!!
