    Default Setting up https

    I have just built a new OpenSuse10.2 server with Zimbra. Must say, has been a much nicer experience than what I dealt with using either Scalix or Citidel.

    I do have a "newbie" question. How do I setup Zimbra to use https vs http? and/or does the advanced client send passwords in clear text when using straight http?

    Thanks for your help and I look forward to learning all that Zimbra has to offer.

    In the config when you were doing the setup, did you turn on the option for https? If so, then you should be able to just point your browser at the https://mail.fqdn and you should be all set.

    If you didnt, you can re-run /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmsetup.pl I think and turn it on, just be sure to shut down ZCS first.

    It only takes a few flakes working together to unleash an avalanche of destruction.

    A easier/better way is to use zmtlsctl, search the wiki and forum about this.

    Default zmtlsctl ldap error

    When I try to use zmtlsctl I get this message...

    ./zmtlsctl https
    ERROR: problem reading config from ldap. Make sure ldap is running.

    Everything else appears to be working normally, except logging into the mail server via https. I am able to connect to the admin using https, although I know it is using a different port.

    Thanks for your help,
    Patrick

    I have the same problem ... I just updated to the latest version to see if that would fix anything. I get the same error if I try to restart tomcat.

    Default ldap error

    Look in /opt/zimbra/bin/zmtlsctl the code does this:
    Code:
    h=`/opt/zimbra/bin/zmhostname`
    zmprov -l gs $h
    What do you get when you run 'zmhostname'?
    What do you get when you run 'nslookup `zmhostname`'?
    What do you get when you run 'zmcontrol status |grep ldap'?

    This step gives the clue:

    "Run as the zimbra user"

    The documentation lacks that crucial piece of information. Running zmtlsctl as the zimbra user allows it to work. Shoulda thought of that.

    Thanks for your help.

    Actually all of the zmxxxxxxxx tools should be run under zimbra user.
