    Default SuSE 10 Install - Cannot Determine Services

    I am installing m4 update2 on to a SUSE10 machine. the install was going ok until i got:

    ERROR: service.Failure (system failure: getDirectContext) (cause: javax.naming.CommunicationException quirkservice.com:389)

    I also got an error saying that there was a port conflict. (from postfix)

    the install seemed to finish ok, and the services appeared to be started, however, when i ran zmcontrol status, i received the error:

    Cannot Determine Services - exiting

    I have looked around the forums, and have seen other posts mentioning some of these errors, but the solutions usually do not apply (e.g. the other person was running a mac).
    I have disabled postfix, but i am not sure if i am running selinux.
    i ran
    Code:
    set selinux=0
    but i don't know if that did anything. i checked the boot log and selinux=0.


    thanks for all your help.

    Looks like LDAP never got up. After fixing your port conflicts you should reinstall to make sure everything is init'd.

    Default

    before i re-ran the install.sh, i made sure postfix wasn't running (chkconfig --del postfix, /etc/init.d/postfix stop), and i didn't get port conflict warnings.

    i installed java 1.5, but it didn't seem to do anything. i am now uninstalling java 1.4 and trying again, since i think it was still using 1.4

    Default suse problem

    We install java for you on SuSE, so don't bother reinstalling your version.

    Search the forums for errors in resolving 'localhost' and firewall stuff. Also, make sure that everything is really stopped before you reinstall.

    im not sure what you mean by "localhost stuff", but im searching the forums now...

    the firewall is disabled. postfix is disabled. i uninstalled java 1.4 using Yast before your post, marcmac.

    there are no port conflicts anymore.

    now when i run install.sh, i get all the way to

    Code:
    initializing LDAP...FAILED (512)
    
    
    ERROR
    
    Configuration Failed

    Default ldap

    You're either not connecting to ldap, or it's not starting - most have been covered in the forums.

    /tmp/intall.log. will have the full error.

    i figured i'd post the full error while i was looking for the answer in case it was something obvious.

    that is the only part with any errors. everything else appears to be going fine.

    Default missing war files

    That error (while annoying) isn't fatal - and it's not causing the ldap problem.

    You need to figure out why zmldapinit is failing.

    i reinstalled again, and this time left the hostname and ldap server as the default. when i was installing earlier versions of zimbra, i usually changed these values with out incident. (the hostname of the server is mail.quirkservice.com, but i want just quirkservice.com as the default domain)

    when i left these as the default values, the install went without a hitch.

    once it installed correctly, i set up a domain quirkservice.com and and a username drogers. this account and can send mail just fine, but not receive it. i sent a message to admin@mail.quirkservice.com and it also cannot receive any mail.

    i had this same machine with the same ip running zimbra before with a different operation system, so i figure the dns records and mx records are set up correctly.

    does there need to be something else in my /etc/hosts file other than the default stuff:
    127.0.0.1 localhost


    I can however, send an email from test@quirkservice.com to drogers@quirkservice.com successfully.

    Default sending mail

    This has been covered before - can't receive mail on the local box. It's DNS, relay_host and MX record problems.
