    My recommendation would be CentOS 5.x for a stable, long term supported o/s.
    Regards

    Is CentOS actually supported now. I thought it was one of the OS's that had Non-Official support. RHEL 4/5, SLES 10, Mac OSX, and Ubuntu 6.06 LTS are still the only one's listsed in the docs. At least that is what is listed for the supported Network Edition and what I gather he wants from "Complete version".

    If you want the Free Open Source, there is a community build that gets updated frequently for 8.04 that dijichi2 normally assembles.

    Indeed. At the beginning of the year, Zimbra says CentOS is NOT supported: CentOS is NOT supported

    Personally I would use Ubuntu LTS. It's fast, has great software repositories, commercially supported by Ubuntu/Canonical, and supported by Zimbra.

    CentOS is not supported (officially or un-officially) for Network Edition but it's a binary compatible build of RHEL4 or RHEL5 and will run those versions of Zimbra perfectly well. I'm assuming the o/p was intending to use the OSS build and for that, my advice, would be CentOS5.

    The reason for that post was a mistaken belief that CentOS had a problem with Scalar::Util on 5.0-, this was incorrect and was a problem with perl. This post clarifies the matter, to quote from that post:

    We apologize for initially declaring that CentOS was the root of the issue. The issue is NOT CentOS, but rather Perl. We were incorrect to jump to the conclusion quickly.
    If CentOS is installed with the standard repositories then there's no difference in running Zimbra on that as opposed to RHEL.
