    Welcome to the forums.

    What errors did you get in the log that's mentioned in your post? Do you have a correct /etc/hosts file and correct DNS A & MX records installed? If you are behind a NAT router you'll need a Split DNS set-up, do you have one?

    Default concerning the error ...

    on the reply ...

    it didn't say waht the answer was. I think that the hosts file is set up fine but I'm not sure exactly waht is meant by DNS A & MX records 'installed'. Does that mean settings on the DNS server or some file on the Zimbra server?

    Who are you asking and do you have a problem? You need DNS A & MX records pointing to the Zimbra server for correct mail delivery and if you're behind a NAT router then you need a Split DNS set-up. Post the details of your /etc/hosts file.

    i just reinstalled rhel because i couldn't get bind to start. i have it running now, but i'm getting this exact same ldap error mentioned in this post which i didn't get in the earlier install.

    i am using split dns and successfully configured it on another box on the same LAN so i think it's working.

    one thing that is different is that the box i'm setting up now is a replacement for an existing exchange server. the exchange server has a static route on my firewall that ties it's lan address to it's mx record address.

    when installing zimbra, is ldap failing because my new box is not using that mx record address? like i said, it installed fine before but bind didn't work. now bind works but ldap fails!

    anyway, should i temporarily create a static on my firewall that ties the new box's lan ip to the mx record ip?

    By split DNS, what are you referring to? Are you referring to the fact that you'll need a separate record pointing to the machine on it's dNAT'ed address, and another one for how the machine would be referred to on the internal (DMZ) network?

    I'm running into the same problem on my end. Any installation I do comes up with that error. What does it mean?

    By the way, I'm trying to install ZCS 5 OSE on Fedora 7, virtualized with Qemu. 4.5 OSE works great, but haven't gotten any 5.0 versions to start yet.

    Sorry for the duplicate posts. Here's the error that it spat out into the /tmp/ directory -- note the address in bold near the bottom -- I edited the perl file that does the LDAP setup (the one that it's erroring on line 160 of) and had it print out the hostname that it's using. That hostname is good and resolves on the local network that this machine is on. What is it looking for? Is it just failing to fire up the LDAP server, or is it trying to do something else at this stage?

    Saving config in /opt/zimbra/config.11049...
    done.
