    Default MTA Multi-Server Install

    I installed a virtual ZCS Network Edition 4.5.10 server with all the Zimbra compnents in a Xen Virtual Environmet on my LAN using CentOS 5.1. In my DMZ I built ZCS Network Edition 4.5.10 server with just MTA and SNMP also on CentOS 5.1 on a physical server. The reason for an MTA Relay in our DMZ is for our external users to use this server instead of the LAN server to relay mail.

    I am new to Zimbra and I used the Multi-Server installation document to perform the install. First off I can not get to the Admin console of the DMZ MTA server but I can communicate completely between the 2 servers; meaning ping, telnet to ports 25, 110, 389; but not 7071 except on the LAN Virtual Server. On the LAN Zimbra Server Web Admin console I do not see this new server under the Servers tab and do not see where I can add it.

    On the DMZ MTA server when I run /opt/zimbra/./zmsetup.pl it returns:

    Operations logged to /tmp/zmsetup.log.3180
    Setting defaults... MX: franklin.scgus.net (192.168.113.68)

    Interface: 192.168.113.68
    Interface: 127.0.0.1
    192.168.113.68
    Done
    Checking for port conflicts

    Main menu

    1) Hostname: franklin.scgus.net
    ** 2) Ldap master host: UNSET
    3) Ldap port: 389
    ** 4) Ldap password: UNSET
    ** 5) TimeZone: UNSET
    6) zimbra-mta: Enabled
    ******* +MTA Auth host: UNSET
    +Enable Spamassassin: yes
    +Enable Clam AV: yes
    +Notification address for AV alerts: admin@franklin.scgus.net

    7) zimbra-snmp: Enabled
    8) Enable default backup schedule: yes
    r) Start servers after configuration yes
    s) Save config to file
    x) Expand menu
    q) Quit

    Address unconfigured (**) items or correct ldap configuration (? - help)


    I go ahead and enter the unconfigured items, pointing to the LAN Zimbra Server as the LDAP master host and MTA Auth Host. I hit 'S' to save and 'Q' to quit, 'Q' asks me "Quit without applying changes? [No]" I type Y since I had already saved hit 'S' to save the config.

    On the LAN Zimbra Server I am using on External Active Directory as an authentication service. I have pointed the LDAP Master Host to the AD Domain credentials as well with no luck.

    I am new to Zimbra and appreciate any help...thanks

    Just a caveat...NE is not supported under CentOS.

    On the MTA machine, how did you configure it when you installed the packages? I assume you did a ./install.sh?

    Yes.

    Also, I changed /etc/redhat-release to read:

    Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5 (Tikanga)

    and Zimbra installed fine...

    You will not receive support for NE if it's installed on CentOS, that is an unsupported Operating System. To receive full support for Zimbra you are required to install on a supported o/s.

    You need to hit "a" to apply the config. Saving the config saves it to a separate file, but it does not apply it to the zimbra config. After you apply the config, you should be able to access the admin console.

    The ldap master must be a zimbra LDAP Server, not AD.
