    Default [SOLVED] New Zimbra Setup - newbie help

    Hi,

    I'm trying to install Zimbra OS edition on Centos5. But I'm having DNS issues resolving the address during installation.

    DNS ERROR resolving MX for mail.mydomain.com
    It is suggested that the domain name have an MX record configured in DNS
    Change domain name? [Yes] Create Domain: [mail.mydomain.com]
    I'm using a sonicwall router to setup a one to one nat between the public ip and the private ip of my server.

    My public ip points to the A Record mail.mydomain.com
    and my MX record for mydomain.com shows: IN 10 mail.mydomain.com

    My /etc/hosts file looks like this
    Code:
    127.0.0.1       localhost.localdomain localhost
    ::1             localhost6.localdomain6 localhost6
    192.168.26.39   mail.mydomain.com mail

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Best,
    Leo

    Welcome to the forums.

    You'll need to add a local DNS server to your set-up behind the router, that will allow your server to resolve it's local IP address. Check this article in the wiki. You should also disable ipv6 on your server.

    Default setup of bind DNS

    I've done everything as directed in the Bind DNS setup from the wiki ( Split DNS - ZimbraWiki )
    but I can't get bind to run.

    I get the following error:

    Starting named:
    Error in named configuration:
    zone mail.mydomain.com/IN: loading master file db.mail.mydomain.com: file not found
    _default/mail.mydomain.com/IN: file not found
    [FAILED]
    Based on the instructions, I setup my /etc/named.conf file with:
    Code:
    // Default named.conf generated by install of bind-9.2.4-2
    options {
           directory "/var/named";
           dump-file "/var/named/data/cache_dump.db";
           statistics-file "/var/named/data/named_stats.txt";
    forwarders { 
    ; }; }; include "/etc/rndc.key"; // We are the master server for mail.mydomain.com zone "mail.mydomain.com" { type master; file "db.mail.mydomain.com"; };
    and I created the db.mail.mydomain.com file with:

    Code:
    ;
    ;       Addresses and other host information.
    ;
    @       IN      SOA     mail.mydomain.com. hostmaster.mail.mydomain.com. (
                                   10118      ; Serial
                                   43200      ; Refresh
                                   3600       ; Retry
                                   3600000    ; Expire
                                   2592000 )  ; Minimum
    ;       Define the nameservers and the mail servers
                   IN      NS      192.168.26.39
                   IN      A        192.168.26.39
                   IN      MX      10 mail.mydomain.com

    I also created all symlinks into the chroot folders.

    I am stuck with:

    Starting named:
    Error in named configuration:
    zone mail.mydomain.com/IN: loading master file db.mail.mydomain.com: file not found
    _default/mail.mydomain.com/IN: file not found
    [FAILED]

    I don't know if you can help me with the bind problem. I'd appreciate any input. Thanks!

    Default additional error

    I am not sure if this is related to it, but when I click on the mail queue icon, I get the following error message

    Message: system failure: exception during auth {RemoteManager: mail.mydomain.com->zimbra@mail.mydomain.com:22}
    Error code: service.FAILURE
    Method: ZmCsfeCommand.prototype.invoke
    Details:soap:Receiver
    I've followed the instructions from here Mail Queue Monitoring - ZimbraWiki with no resolution.
