    Default Install fails on zimbra-spell

    Hi,

    I am installing Zimbra 4.5.6 on CentOS 5 on a Dual-Core Xeon.

    I have worked around a couple glitches thanks to other threads on this forum but am now stuck as the install fails on the zimbra-spell line:
    Code:
    zimbra-spell......zimbra-spell-4.5.6_GA_1044.RHEL5_64-20070712095019.x86_61.rpm...FAILED
    ###ERROR###
    Then it just says that this rpm failed and installation cancelled.

    Would appreciate any help. It if matters, my hosts file is
    Code:
    127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
    TIA,
    Caleb

    Your hosts file is incorrect, please check the Quick Start Installation Guide for details of the format. You will also need correct DNS A & MX records set for you server.

    Thanks, that was exactly the problem.

    I am having trouble defining a route to take to test the Zimbra server on a few people without a major commitment to it.

    Also I am wondering how to keep a live secondary system in place so that we have something to fall back on if the in-house Zimbra server goes down. Part of this is that we have a dual-WAN router and would lose the main static IP if the primary line went down. I'm not sure how we could continue to receive mail somewhere in this case. Any suggestions?

    Thanks,
    Caleb

    If you want to run Zimbra in conjunction with an already installed system then a Split Domain set-up might be what you need. Check the article and see if it does what you need.
