My past posts were prepping me for going live with network edition of 5.0.6. So this past Friday, I finally was able to install 5.0.6 network on RHEL 5.2x64. Yes I made it after adding a few rpms, but the install is of the subdomain, and not the domain that I wanted. I of course scoured the lists and saw many similar posts, but am asking for expert guidance to fix what I have, or reinstall.
Hosts file is correct: 127.0.0.1 local.... then below it, 10.1.x.x java.domain.org (java is my my server's host name). No problem there. But the install script could not find an MX record.
I created one, as the internal server points to our AD DNS. The record is (10) 10.1.x.x java.domain.org. Our existing mailserver is (0) 10.1.x.x mail.domain.org. So is it possible that on install, the script did the NS lookup and found the (0) record, saw that it was not the right IP, and then did not query further? If id did query further, surely it would have found the (10) 10.1.x.x java.domain.org record.
I want my server to operate under 1 domain, the domain.org domain. Should I have set it in DNS to (0) for the install and then later back to (10)? Once Zimbra is live, we will accordingly kill the other server and replace the MX for 'java' to (0).
In the admin console, on server status (of which I have to login as email@example.com (when I planned to have firstname.lastname@example.org), I have a Red X on the MTA. Would this be tied to all of this?
So I am prepared to do the install -u option, if that is the best and change (for the purpose of the install) the MX to (0), but I thought maybe the esperts have seen this about a few hundred times and point me in the correct direction??
I did add a second domain, to be domain.org, but the Certs, postmaster, reports, spam/ham accts., etc..... all are pointing to the subdomain (of the hostname), so this worries me. I have to start right, not start with fixes. I am very excited to go live for our staff, but need the 'java.domain.org' instance to be for 'domain.org'.
I hope I gave all the details. If something is missing, please let me know. I will post back.
Thank you for all your help. Looking forward to the new install!!!!
