    Okay, done.

    still failed.

    now, you keep saying 'domain.com' which is a wonderful generic.
    I keep reading to use the fqdn, so I am actually using
    host.domain.tld, but this is also a red herring like the trial_exp
    stated above.

    Now, I ran this last bit, with the ?debug=2 flag, and it showed the query
    being exactly what I typed in the zmprov ca argument you showed.
    And the response came back the same,
    a n="zimbraIsDomainAdminAccount"
    false

    BUT,
    I'm not seeing the failure in the logs.

    Default username

    I use domain.com as a placeholder.

    When you installed, you selected a HOSTNAME for the server, which defaults to the servers fqdn. You also selected a DOMAINNAME to create, which defaults to the HOSTNAME.

    If you changed the DOMAINNAME under which you create users, then you should use that DOMAINNAME in the login screen - not the HOSTNAME.

    So - zmprov gaa will return a list of accounts, with DOMAINNAME - use that to log into the admin console.

    I don't want to chase red herrings,
    However, the installation was completely happy with the machine
    as it was built. The ONLY setting I had to input was the admin password.
    I did NOT have to set the hostname.

    Aside from your directions. I haven't changed a thing.

    zmprov gaa returns the following list;
    (for purpose of clarity, host.domain.tld = the fqdn of the server)
    $ zmprov gaa
    admin@host.domain.tld
    jwnpsbqda@host.domain.tld
    testadmin@host.domain.tld
    umfmb6nl3@host.domain.tld

    The pseudo-random usernames being the spam stuff of course.

    For further purpose of clarity,
    I can log in to the 'regular' non-admin, email or whatever the heck you call it,
    as admin@host.domain.tld, and testadmin@host.domain.tld without issue.

    Any chance it's FireFox on Linux that is at issue here? It's the only platform I have in front of me. Konqueror doesn't seem to work at all. Just get a grey screen.

    Just as a side note, and a way of illustrating my ignorance of all things ldap (atldap)
    the debug screen returns xml value for a n="zimbraIsDomainAdminAccount"
    that value being false;

    And it's correct; because when I ask for the value zimbraIsDomainAdminAccount
    zmprov ga admin@host.domain.tld | grep zimbraIsDomainAdminAccount
    (or testadmin) I get no output. If I ask admin@host.domain.tld | grep zimbraIsAdminAccount I get proper output.

    Is zimbraIsDomainAdminAccount=zimbraIsAdminAccount ?

    Default should have tried this

    I can reproduce this with the 277 build on FC3, but it seems to work fine with 299 - try upgrading to that version (or an even newer version...):

    'K

    Is there a simple way, aside from rip-and-rebuild, to rip zimbra out and start afresh?

    Yes, yes, that works much better, thank you.

    This is not an issue.
