    Default going crazy....

    Hello.

    I was installing zimbra for the first time, and noticed that the domain on the hostname was wrong. Aborted instalation, changed hostname in /etc/sysconfig/network (i'm in CentOS) and didn't had nothing in /etc/hosts.
    Rebooted.

    When i try to install, i get this error:
    Code:
    Press Return to continue
    
    
            ERROR: Installation can not proceeed.  Please fix your /etc/hosts file
            to contain:
    
            127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
    
            Zimbra install grants mysql permissions only to localhost and
            localhost.localdomain users.  But Fedora/RH installs leave lines such
            as these in /etc/hosts:
    
            127.0.0.1     myhost.mydomain.com myhost localhost.localdomain localhost
    
            This causes MySQL to reject users coming from 127.0.0.1 as users from
            myhost.mydomain.com.  You can read more details at:
    
            http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=11822
    That's ok, but if i do this, the instalation will configure all servers with this domain, (localhost.localdomain) and the servers wont start.

    if i leave it empty, i've got an java error:
    Code:
     
    
    Setting defaults...hostname: Unknown host
    java.net.UnknownHostException: punk.netgraf.pt: punk.netgraf.pt

            at com.zimbra.cs.localconfig.Main.main(Main.java:116)
    Tryed to install dozens of times, erased all files from zimbra install...


    Is there an uninstall?
    Is there a way to solve this?

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes, there is an uninstall you just run the install script again with '-u' (no quotes) and it'll completely remove the Zimbra installation. If you've had install problems I suggest you do an uninstall before trying another install.

    You also need a hosts file in the format:

    127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
    a.b.c.d host.domain.com host

    with a.b.c.d set as the fixed IP address of your Zimbra server, that should solve your problem. I also use CentOS and that works fine for me.
