    The problem with your hosts file is this:

    Code:
    192.168.2.5	server1.medalist.com.au	server1
    192.168.2.5	mail.medalist.com.au server1
    and it should contain only this:

    Code:
    127.0.0.1	localhost.localdomain	localhost
    192.168.2.5	mail.medalist.com.au mail
    as per the documentation (plus dozens of posts in the forums).
    Regards

    Bill,

    The server name and the zimbra installation is called server1.medalist.com.au

    The reason I have mail.medalist.com.au is that the mx record for the externally hosted dns is mail.medalist.com.au as is the web address on our ssl certificate.

    On the internal DNS (hosted on the server) and in the hosts file, should I use server1.medalist.com.au or mail.medalist.com.au, assuming that I can only use 1?

    Th reason I used "mail.medalist.com.au" in my reply was because the MX records also has that name in it, if you want to use the FQDN of the server then change the hosts file and your DNS records to reflect the correct FQDN of the server. It shouldn't make any difference what your local DNS records look like as long as they reflect the FQDN.

    If you use "mail.medalist.com.au" internally as the url to the server then you could do this:

    Code:
    192.168.2.5	server1.medalist.com.au server1 mail
    with an additional A record for 'mail'. This should work:

    Code:
    server1.medalist.com.au.     604800	 IN	A	192.168.2.5
    mail.medalist.com.au.        604800	IN	A	192.168.2.5
    Regards

    I guess this resolution also fixes the problem in this thread? Could you put a solved status on that and reference the solution here, please.
    Regards

    Still not working I'm afraid.

    /etc/hosts:

    host `hostname`
    Code:
    server1.medalist.com.au has address 192.168.2.5
    I put my.cnf and my.logger.cnf back to localhost and zmlocalconfig bind_address (both) to localhost and the mysql and logger would not start. Putting them back to 192.168.2.5 does allow it to start with the changes to the hosts file and the bind9 db file, but the problem still remains with slapd not starting from user zimbra.

    Thanks for the help, I'm sure it's getting closer.

    Maybe the problem is in my bind setup

    db.medalist.com.au:

    Code:
    db.medalist.com.au
    ;
    ; BIND data file for local loopback interface
    ;
    $TTL	604800
    @	IN	SOA	server1.medalist.com.au. server.medalist.com.au. (
    			      3		; Serial
    			 604800		; Refresh
    			  86400		; Retry
    			2419200		; Expire
    			 604800 )	; Negative Cache TTL
    ;
    @	IN	NS	192.168.2.5
    @	IN	A	192.168.2.5
    server1 IN	A	192.168.2.5
    mail	IN	A	192.168.2.5
    www	IN	CNAME	server1
    ftp	IN	CNAME	server1
    
    @	IN	MX	10 mail
    @	IN	AAAA	::1
    I've seen other setup us A records for www and ftp instead of CNAME, but I didn't think that would make any difference in this instance.

    Your MX record should have the FQDN of the server, have a look at this post for the formats. Once you've made the changes you can check the configuration with the dig & host commands from the earlier post by Uxbod. If they look OK then try a restart of Zimbra and see what errors you get in the logs (if any of the services fail).
    Regards
