    Talking Several domains per server

    I want to manage more than one domain on our zimbra server so what i do is that every mail.* subdomain points to the zimbra server.

    Ex.

    mail.domain1.com
    mail.domain2.com

    points to the zimbra server.

    the zimbra hostname is "domain1.com" so i can login to mail.domain1.com with just my username but if i go to mail.domain2.com i need to full domain username.

    I found this on an old thread (KevinH):
    Not sure what you are asking here. Do you mean kevin@foo.com and kevin@bar.com? If so you just need to use the full domain to login. In the future we'll add virtual host support so going to mail.foo.com will default to @foo.com and mail.bar.com will default to @bar.com
    Is this supported on the latest zimbra opensource edition (4.0.3)?

    Thanks,
    Fernando

    I see the tab where you should be able to set this but can't figure out what it's looking for.

    Anyone know what the "Virtual Host" ( Under Domains in the admin gui ) is looking for? Keeps giving me the error: "Value did not match valid values"
    Only thing it takes is the domain itself but won't take a host.
    So, anyone know what the scoop is on this?

    Yes, I read the wiki and searched the forum but didn't see any references to anyone setting this up. Wiki says what it does, but not how to set it up.

    So, I am "Ditto-ing" _pronto_ on this, is this working yet?

    Yes, it's working. It's meant to work in these circumstances: if you have a users with several domains that he uses for his email such as fred@domain1.com (lets says this is the default domain), fred@domain2.com etc and if you want to give him a specific COS or attributes for each domain then you need to set-up a virtual host. It will ensure that when he logs in with fred@domain2.com he gets same attributes as if he were logging in as fred@domain1.com - make sense so far?

    The only thing you need to enter in the box is a domain name in the correct format: domain2.com or domain2.co.uk etc. It's working OK on my system.

    I guess, I was under the impression that I could just enter ( using your example and assuming the mail server name of 'mail ) mail.domain1.com and just type 'fred' instead of entering the whole domain string each time.
    Since I host multiple domains, it would be real nice if all of my users in each domain, only had to type in their name and not the whole thing.

    yes/no? Can't get the above assumption to work.
    Also, won't let me enter 2ndary domains, say 'fred@domain.domain1.com' so the whole domain string is 'domain.domain1.com' .
    Also gives me the "Value did not match valid values" error.
    Maybe a bug?

    Anyway, just wanted to verify that I am on the same page as you before I go any further in trying to get it to work.

    Oh, I did a restart after I added for one of the domains, still no luck.

    Yes, it sounds like a bug. I'm using 4.0.3 and it will let me enter a subdomain of domain.domain1.com - you'll need to enter it in bugzilla.

    When you entered it in, did you have both domains, domain1.com AND domain2.domain1.com ?

    I upgraded from 3.1.4 to 4.0.3 ( on a test box )

    No, I didn't have anything defined. It lets me enter anything as long as it's a valid domain name. I must admit I haven't used this feature until I checked it for your problem. I did initially suspect that it needed the domain name already defined but it doesn't, that doesn't make any difference as you'll nned a valid domain for the user to login with.

    Yeah, makes sense. I can define if the domain doesn't exist, which of course isn't going to work 'cause why would I need it for a domain that doesn't exist. ;-)

    On the first subject though, still can't login via short login string when I define a "virtual host". Re-reading your e-mail below, the "virtual host" function is only for
    if you want to give him a specific COS or attributes for each domain
    and not shortening the login string for each domain, correct assumption?
    If not, and it is in fact supposed to shortening the login string for each domain, can you try this on your server with a separate test domain? Maybe limited to an issue on my server for some reason?

    Correct, it's not for shortening the login. It is for when a user logs in with a full domain name and pick up a set of default attributes.

    Hm, like bummer man. ;-)

    How would this be different then assigning attributes for each domain via COS tab?
