    Default [SOLVED] 2 NIC's in VMWare, how do I configure them for Zimbra?

    Hi!


    I'm new to both Zimbra and VMWare. I have done a successful installation of Zimbra using Ubuntu 8.04 LTS. I have also set up several server VM's in VMWare, but I can't get the networking configured for Zimbra. I'm going to start from scratch tomorrow on a new disk array.

    I'm going to use Ubuntu 8.04 LTS a VM. Can anyone help me? I can provide print screens tomorrow!


    Best regards
    Knut Nordvik

    How is VMWare network configured? What virtual network mode do you use?

    Why have you defined two NICs ? Also, by the looks of things you are using a very old version of ZCS. Why not install 5.0.11 within Ubuntu ?

    I have defined on NIC to management of the ESXi 3.5 server on our LAN. The other NIC is attached to the WWW. I have set the NIC's address from within Zimbra to our static IP address. I can reach https://domainname:8003 from the outside, but nothing moore.

    I imported the Zimbra from the Virtual Market Place from within ESXi. I first thought it had to be the latest version, but I was wrong.

    I have now deleted this installation and installed Ubuntu 8.04 LTS 32bit and are in the process of burning the latest Zimbra to a CD. I'm going to mount this to my client CD-ROM and try to reach it from within the Ubuntu VM. Any guidelines appreciated!

    As long as your hosts and DNS is setup correctly then you should have no problems. If that server is behind a firewall and you do use private IPs then you will need to setup a Split DNS - Zimbra :: Wiki architecture.

    The "red" NIC is connected to a switch that is connected directly to a modem. It is good to hear that I'm on the right track!

    Can I use wget to fetch the newest version of Zimbra?
