    Default Zimbra an Centos 4.2 fail to start

    Hi, I installed zimbra on a centos 4.2 with 756 mb ram and 80 gig disk VM.

    When the centos boots, it fails to start zimbra and this is the only thing reflected on the system.

    zmcontrol status: cannot determine services

    and ps ax reveals that only slapd is running.

    what other info can I post here?

    Thanks,

    Default Utf8

    Search the forums for "utf8" and i18n to find the change to /etc/sysconfig/i18n.

    That solved the problem.
    The lines that start with # are the original ones.
    BTW, given the fact that I didnt find an explanation, what does this change mean?

    LANG="en_US"
    #LANG="en_US.UTF-8"
    SUPPORTED="en_US:en:es_MX:es:es_PA:es:es_ES:es"
    #SUPPORTED="en_US.UTF-8:en_US:en:es_MX.UTF-8:es_MX:es:es_PA.UTF-8:es_PA:es:es_ES.UTF-8:es_ES:es"
    SYSFONT="latarcyrheb-sun16"

    thanks,

    What does it mean? I don't know, actually (other than, zimbra on a VM works)

    Any explanation for what? It's seems less connected to OS than to running on a virtual machine (vmware is where I've seen it).

    Default UTF8 problem not just limited to VM

    FYI...the UTF8 problem is not just limited to virtual machines. The problem can be duplicated on real hardware (no VM) with Fedora Core 4 or CentOS 4.2 if you choose a Minimal OS installation (no GUI). I'm not sure what the difference is in the minimal OS installation that creates the UTF8 problem. In any case, the fix listed above resolves the issue.

    Yup, taking out UTF8 on i18n does fix the problem.
