    Default Is the zimbra.domain.com same with mail.example.com?

    May I know Is the zimbra.domain.com can be same with mail.example.com?

    I a bit confuse...

    MTA - Zimbra :: Wiki

    My PC ip is 3.244.4.19, the zimbra will install and will start at this pc.

    The external ip of 3.244.4.19 which bond to mx record mail.myExample.com.my

    Is it the
    mail.myExample.com.my = zimbra.domain.com
    or
    mail.myExample.com.my = mail.example.com?

    During the installation, we should input the domain name right...
    ================================================== =
    2) zimbra-ldap: Enabled
    +Create Domain: yes
    +Domain to create: mail.um.edu.my
    +Ldap Root password: set
    +Ldap Replication password: set
    +Ldap Postfix password: set
    +Ldap Amavis password: set
    ================================================== ==

    The domain is what domain.... is it the mail.example.com domain or zimbra.domain.com domain (new domain create)?

    It a bit confusing... I not really know about the DNS stuff...

    Thank

    Default

    The easiest setup, if your server is on a public IP, would be to set the FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Name) of the machine to something like zimbra.yourdomain.com. You would then add A record for the servers IP to DNS plus a MX record for your domain which points at zimbra.yourdomain.com. Then install ZCS and when it asks for the FQDN use zimbra.yourdomain.com.

    Default

    Actually why TinyDNS has Master and slave ?

    Why not only one DNS? Then every pc go to resolve the unknow address from the DNS...

    I just configure locally on my another pc ip is 192.168.1.102 as testing

    It a bit different from the link that given here
    How to Host Your Own Domain with Bind9 on Ubuntu - Set-up A DNS server to host your domain or provide a DNS server to your LAN. - Softpedia

    The configuration as below...
    /etc/bind/zones/linux.lan.db
    linux.lan. IN SOA ns1.linux.lan. admin.linux.lan. (

    2006081401
    28800
    3600
    604800
    38400 )

    linux.lan. IN NS ns1.linux.lan.
    IN A 192.168.1.102
    mail.linux.lan. IN MX 10 mail.linux.lan.
    linux.lan. IN MX 10 mail.linux.lan.

    www IN A 192.168.1.102
    mail IN A 192.168.1.102
    ns1 IN A 192.168.1.102
    /etc/bind/zones/rev.0.10.10.in-addr.arpa
    @ IN SOA linux.lan. admin.linux.lan. (
    2006081401;
    28800;
    604800;
    604800;
    86400 );

    IN NS ns1.linux.lan.
    102 IN PTR linux.lan.
    /etc/resolv.conf
    nameserver 202.188.0.133
    nameserver 202.188.1.5
    search linux.lan
    nameserver 192.168.1.102

    fsloke@fsloke-desktop:/etc/bind/zones$ host linux.lan 127.0.0.1

    Aliases:

    linux.lan mail is handled by 10 mail.linux.lan.

    The problem now is where should I install the slave? Is it every pc in one domain?

    Thank...
