    Default [SOLVED] Initializing ldap...failed. (28928)

    Trying to install ZCS 5.0.8 GA Release (open source) on an Ubuntu 6.06.2 server (running in VirtualBox). I just did a standard install for Ubuntu, installed SSH and any requirements for Zimbra and then updated the system. From there I tried to do an install from the latest file on the website (zcs-5.0.8_GA_2462.UBUNTU6.20080709173036.tgz)

    Everything seemed to be running fine and then I got the above error message. Checking log file I see this.

    Code:
    Tue Jul 22 17:11:59 2008 checking isEnabled zimbra-ldap
    Tue Jul 22 17:11:59 2008 zimbra-ldap is enabled
    Tue Jul 22 17:11:59 2008 Initializing ldap...
    Tue Jul 22 17:11:59 2008 *** Running as zimbra user: /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmldapinit
    IO::Socket::INET: connect: No route to host at /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmldapinit line 160.
    Tue Jul 22 17:12:45 2008 failed. (28928)
    Everything resolves properly (domain.name with MX record of mail.domain.name and mail.domain.name with a CNAME record pointing to host.domain.name). The only other related post said that it was a sudoers problem (it is 0440) and that restarting the network fixed it (it didn't).

    Any ideas?

    I believe that the RFC's recommend NOT using a CNAME to resolve an E-mail server. You should use an A record. I don't know if this is the answer to your specific issue but I do know some mail servers will not work when an mail server resolves to a CNAME.

    Thanks for the heads up on that. Fortunately this system isn't live, yet. Unfortunately that did not solve the ldap error.

    Please post the following so that we can verify your DNS setup
    Code:
    cat /etc/hosts
    cat /etc/resolv.conf
    dig _yourdomainname_ mx
    dig _yourdomainname_ any
    host `hostname` <- note backticks and not double quotes

    D'oh! That was the issue after all. Everything was resolving fine when I ran pings and digs because the DNS servers were right. Unfortunately I never fixed the hosts file after changing the IP address before the installation. The test system is up and running. Thanks!
