    Default internal Zimbra installation w/o DNS-server

    Hello,

    is it possible to setup/install an (internal) Zimbra mailserver without running DNS server (for testing and evaluation purposes) ?


    Thank's a lot!


    John


    PS
    We do know that for our environment a Split-DNS setup would be required..

    You will require a DNS setup as Zimbra needs to be able to resolve the MX records for your domain(s).

    Thank's uxbod for the feedback. Do you know if a DNS server can be setup for meeting the Zimbra-requirements without connection to the ISP/internet?

    Yes you can install a Split DNS - Zimbra :: Wiki architecture which is local to your ZCS server, and as indicated in the Wiki should only be used by ZCS and not other hosts.

    Hello,


    thank's a lot for the helpful informations: I forgot to mention that it should
    be possible to to have external users (from the internet) accessed our
    Zimbra-server by typing www.ourcompany.com/mail (www.ourcompany.com is hosted extenally)

    As I understand to achive that it's required to add a DNS entry for mail.ourcompany.com
    and point the www records at the host and the mail record at your zimbra server.


    Does the suggested Split-DNS setup allow this?



    Thank's a lot for any feedback!

    John
