    Default [SOLVED] OpenSUSE 10.3 - Multiple MX Record Issues

    Hello All,
    Am attempting to install ZCS 5.01_GA on OpenSUSE 10.3 (text mode only install) am getting LDAP Install issues (see below). Have followed bigmudcake's directions to the letter. (Thanks bunch for the directions! ). Before I get into all of the wonderful details of my multiple install and de-installs- a question. Is it even possible to install a Zimbra box in a domain that already has a production Mail server, even if I have defined the Zimbra box with a MX record above original box? Or, does the Zimbra box need to be THE ONLY mail server defined in the domain for LDAP to setup correctly? I'm thinking that may be where I am hitting a big brick wall and wanted to check that out as why the LDAP install always bombs. Also, I have disabled the SUSE Firewall and Novell App Armor with no luck. I am intending to replace our existing mail solution with Zimbra over time and keep our existing mail server in production and slowly migrate, at least that is that plan.

    Main LDAP Install Error that I constantly get-

    Code:
    zimbra-ldap is enabled
    Initializing ldap...
    *** Running as zimbra user: /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmldapinit
    IO::Socket::INET: connect: Connection refused at /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmldapinit line 160.
    failed. (28416)
    
    
    ERROR
    
    
    
    Configuration failed
    All of the gory details-
    'mail' is our production mail server and 'mail1' is the Zimbra box.

    Code:
    mail1:/ # dig r8esc.k12.in.us MX

    Hi,

    I am glad the instructions worked well.

    I have found that Zimbra is very dependant on a correctly setup DNS system, and rightly so.

    Without blowing my own trumpet too much :-) I current have both my existing sendmail/IMAP system (running on Rethat 6.2 would you believe) and a Zimbra mail server serving successfully together on the same domain. This allows me to migrate from old to new system at my own time and speed. The trick is, to have a DNS correctly setup, all your IP addresses and subnets correctly routable and in tune with what the DNS server expects.

    My old sendmail server has its own DNS server which it always refers to.

    My new server also has its own DNS server which it also refers to.

    Do not mix the two up, otherwise strange things happen.

    Anyway, on the forums here I do see alot of questions regarding DNS setup and wondering why more info is not given. Well, each OS has their own ways of setting up a DNS server, and its not the role of Zimbra to ensure a correct DNS server is setup.

    Now for setting up a DNS server on openSUSE, using YAST is your friend, it greatly automates the process. Have a look through the openSUSE website and the general linux HOWTO's on how to setup a DNS server correctly.

    But when your getting a "connection refused", it usually means that the server is setup on an IP address that is different than what the DNS is trying to direct traffic to, or the server is not running at all.

    Anyway, I am sorry I dont have more time to explain now, I will eventually document and publish my multiple migration system setup here soon.

    Cheers

    You are absolutely right that DNS is indispensable to a properly working Zimbra server. I'm a little puzzled by your comment that more info isn't available. Here are several articles that may help:

    DNS - Zimbra :: Wiki
    Split DNS - Zimbra :: Wiki
    http://www.zimbra.com/blog/archives/...ogether_1.html
    Ubuntu 6.06 Server (Dapper Drake) Beginner's Install Guide - Zimbra :: Wiki

    While this last one is about Ubuntu installation it's one of the few places bind9 is discussed instead of regular bind.

    In addition, there is a ton of stuff in forum threads that may also help you out. Just use the search term "DNS" in the Zimbra Forums search window and you will get lots of hits, some of which may be relevant to you.

    Welcome to the Zimbra world!
