    Default Fqdn

    Hey All,

    Bear with me, because i'm a noob to both Linux AND zimbra. I'm trying to install zimbra on Ubuntu 8.04, and I know it's not supported on that, but I understand that many people can get it to work with some modifications.

    In any case, the part i'm hazy on is the hosts file.

    i want it to look like this

    127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
    x.x.x.x (myservername).(randomdomain.gov/com/edu/etc.) (myservername)
    x.x.x.x (same as above) (newname.ourexternaldomain.gov/com/edu/etc.)

    I know that might be hard to follow, but basically, i want to just enter in servername.random domain name (since it's not really on a domain) for the server name, and then on the third name enter in the same internal ip again but this time with the external fully qualified domain name, which would be configured on our dns. does that make sense?

    Sorry for the confusion!

    Thanks

    Sorry, but no, it doesn't make sense, at least not to me. Can you explain a little more about what you are trying to do? You wouldn't want to put the same IP address on multiple lines in the /etc/hosts file.

    i know, i'm sorry. let me see if i can clarify this

    127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
    172.30.20.15 myservername.mymadeupdomain.local localhost
    172.30.20.15 dnsregisteredhostname.externaldomain.com dnsregisteredhostname

    basically, i want my server name to be different the domain name of my mail server. so i want my server to be serverx.localdomain with an ip of x.x.x.x, but i want the external world to see something else (i.e, dnsregisteredhostname.externaldomain).

    that probably didn't help any, did it?
