    Default Installing a second Zimbra server

    I have Zimbra m2 running fine, and want to install a second server using the same LDAP, but when I don't install LDAP, I don't get the 'a' apply option with install.sh? Am I missing something?

    Thanks

    Default second server

    When you install a second server, you have to point the ldap host (option 1) at it, and set the password correctly (option 3). You can get the password from the first server, with:

    zmlocalconfig -s zimbra_ldap_password

    After that, you'll get the 'a' apply option (note that the line now says, correct ldap or select menu item.)

    Actually, I edited both the server name (option 2 - LDAP master host) and option 4 (LDAP Password), but that sets my local name to the same as my LDAP host, weird, or am i missing something?

    Do you know if the LDAP server has to be a name or is an IP good enough?

    Thanks

    Default ldap host

    Did you install the ldap server on the second host? If you did, make sure it's disabled. (Ldap menu, first option)

    The ldap host should be the hostname, not the IP - and if it's not on the local host, it should be different from the local host.

    Still not having any luck here, sorry.

    So, here's the scenario:

    - First server (zimbra.compunique.com) is installed with everything and running great!
    - Second server (mail2.compunique.com) is fully uninstalled (install.sh -u) and going to be installed w/o zimbra ldap.

    When I get to the install menu I have :
    1. hostname: localhost.localdomain
    ** 2. ldap master host: localhost.localdomain
    3. ldap port 389
    ** 4. ldap password: noset

    So I set the option 2 to zimbra.compunique.com, and the password accordingly.

    I still don't get the 'a' apply option, unless I set the option 1 hostname to the same as the ldap server,is that correct? If it is, thats confusing!

    Any help would be appreciated.

    John

    AH HA!!!! Now I see the problem! (note to self, turn off all firewalls and listen to forum suggestions )

    OK, so the problem is two fold: 1. the firewall was limiting port 389 from connecting, fixed that. 2. The password was differnet than what I had initially set on server 1, which thankfully you told me how to get!

    so after all that was fixed, it worked great!

    BTW, I love the logging you guys do during setup, after hunting around in the scripts for a bit, I found what you were doing and saw them in the log :

    /tmp/zmsetup.ldap.out

    Very cool product!

    Thanks for all the help

    Default What did you install?

    When you ran install.sh, which options did you select BEFORE the menu? Did you tell it to install zimbra-ldap? If so, you need to disable that in the menu. (Select the ldap sub-menu, and the first option should be to disable ldap).

    With ldap disabled (or not installed) you should see the ldap host as UNSET.

    I didn't install LDAP, and finally figured it out, the pasword was the big one, but the LDAP check in the install script helped me troubleshoot my issue.

    Thanks again

    You can do that by highlighting a bunch of text and then click on the 'Wrap QUOTE tags....' button just above the box where you type. It's the one on the right that looks more like a speech bubble (well, it does to me ).
