    Default [SOLVED] Installing on Ubuntu 8.04

    error inializing ldap...failed (29440)

    I am confused I guess...need slapd? I keep getting errors on startup about hostname on DNS, however I am using DNS through a westell DSL modem at this time. I have the zimbrabox added (zimbrabox.prockop.local) but keep getting failed ldap. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi Wired4fx, welcome to the forums.

    You mention that your system uses DNS through a DSL modem. Is your server behind a NAT? If so, you'll need an internal DNS server or separate view on your DNS server so your server can resolve itself to its internal IP address as well as the MX for your domain. Zimbra is very dependent upon DNS, especially the MTA (postfix) and LDAP. Here's the Zimbra wiki article on using a "split DNS" setup using Red Hat: Split DNS - Zimbra :: Wiki Of course it's slightly different in Ubuntu, but the concept will be the same.

    Ok...I did that and NS lookup verifies, but I am still getting:

    DNS ERROR resolving MX for zimbrabox.prockop.local

    Ok, you set an MX record for your domain in your internal DNS server? It should point at your zimbrabox.prockop.local hostname.

    You're still in the midst of your installation, correct?

    I also found this thread about using .local in your hostname. You really should make the hostname what the public name will be so SSL certs match, etc.: http://www.zimbra.com/forums/install...ving-mail.html

    Are you installing on Ubuntu 8.04 server? Sounds like a DNS server issue. check here Making Zimbra & BIND Work Together » Zimbra :: Blog
