    Default Asking for advice-Zimbra Desktop Mac installation.

    Dear Zimbra guys,

    may I kindly ask you for your
    technical advice to Mac user ?

    What password do I have to
    type when starting my Zimbra
    Desktop ver. 0.90 build 1249
    installation on my Intel iMac
    2.4 GHz with Mac OS X Ė 10.5.4
    Leopard ?

    Do I have to enter my administrator
    account password or another one ?

    By the way, I use a blank password
    (none) as my administrator password.

    What does it mean as below ?

    ďYou must be a member of the
    Administrator groupĒ

    For your information :

    1. Iíve been a registered member
    of Zimbra Forum since today.
    2. I havenít been a support user
    yet.
    3. Iím the only administrator user
    of my iMac computer (single user
    with administratorís privileges).
    4. Iíve got a Yahoo membership
    and e-mail free account.

    What do you recommend me to
    manage my Zimbra installation ?
    Any additional installations e.g.?

    Many thanks in advance for your
    kind advice. Have a nice weekend !

    Cheerio Joe

    It's asking you for the password for the account you are running the installer as. The account that you are running this as needs to have administrative rights. Also: make sure you run the installer as the user you plan to use Zimbra Desktop with. It installs to data to your home directory.

    And welcome to the forums

    Default Mac User w/o admin priviledges

    Hi,

    I'm evaluating zimbra & z desktop for a deployment on macs at work. I followed advice from various people suggesting to use an non-admin user for your everyday work, instead of a full admin user. So far I had no problems with this setup because for installations software would simply ask for authentication.

    With the desktop solution that doesnt work. Any plans to amend/change that? It would seem like good housekeeping to allow for it.

    Thanks for info

    yes, we have an enhancement bug opened for this:
    Bug 35087 – support installing/running ZD as non-privileged user

    you can also set your account to be admin user temporarily. after installing ZD, you can change the account type back.

    ah, thanks for the tip. Temporarily turning it on would be no problem.
