    Default errorno=99

    Hello all i have read many post about this error and the fact that it is useally caused by incorrect host file i believe mine to be correct see below.

    initializing ldap...Failed to start slapd. Attempting debug start to determine error.
    daemon: bind(7) failed errno=99 (Cannot assign requested address)
    slap_open_listener: failed on ldap://mx1.canmail.org:389

    FAILED (1)


    ERROR

    Configuration failed

    127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
    xxx.xxx.xxx.out domain.com domain
    xxx.xxx.xxx.out mx1.domain.com mx1
    xxx.xxx.xxx.in domain.com domain
    xxx..xxx.xxx.in mx1.domain.com mx1

    i have added the xxx.xxx.xxx.in because the ip of the zimbra machine is xxx.xxx.xxx.in and is DMZ behind a router that is xxx.xxx.xxx.out

    also dns is working i think

    [c0mputerking@pcbsd /usr/home/c0mputerking]$ nslookup canmail.org

    Hi-
    An error 99 usually indicates that although you have your hosts file correct, the IP on the interface is not the one in the hosts file.

    Can you verify that?

    Thanks

    You need two entries in you hosts file and they are:

    Code:
    127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
    192..168.1.10 mx1.canmail.com mx1
    and that's all you need. I'm assuming you are behind a router or firewall because you have your DNS server on 127.0.0.1 (and you've already said so ). The external DNS indicates that you don't have any records set-up at all as per this report.

    From the zimbra server you can perform an initial test of the settings with the following:

    Code:
    host `hostname`  <-- backticks not single quotes
    dig computerking.ca mx
    dig computerking.ca any
    From what you've posted you appear to be trying to use the public to resolve your server address, that's incorrect for your set-up. You need two different sets of DNS records. You need records in a public DNS server that point to your public IP address and you need records on your local DNS server that point to your LAN ip address. Please review the Split DNS set-up in the wiki.

    No I do not have a local dns server I could set one up if needed but i already have a couple. I thought that 127.0.0.1 was because zimbra needed to pass a bunch of stuff to itself
