    Default install stuck on initializing documents

    hi all
    i've been trying to install zcs on ubuntu 8.04LTS following the howtoforge guide for the last 24 hours. Every time I install it, it gets through the entire install with no issues (as far as I can tell) but then when trying to start services, it simply hangs on Initializing documents. At first I thought it may be a DNS issue as that is what a lot of people on these forums seem to have issues with, but I'm pretty sure I've got it all setup right...

    this is from the machine i'm trying to install zimbra on...

    root@zimbra:/tmp# cat /etc/hosts
    127.0.0.1 localhost
    127.0.1.1 zimbra.renegatus.net.au zimbra.renegatus .net.au
    10.0.0.5 zimbra.renegatus.net.au zimbra.renegatus .net.au
    60.241.98.81 zimbra.renegatus.net.au zimbra.renegatus

    root@zimbra:/tmp# cat /etc/hostname
    zimbra.renegatus.net.au

    root@zimbra:/tmp# cat /etc/resolv.conf
    search renegatus.local
    nameserver 10.0.0.3


    root@zimbra:/tmp# dig mx zimbra.renegatus.net.au

    ; <<>> DiG 9.4.2-P2 <<>> mx zimbra.renegatus.net.au

    I run a .local windows 2003 domain. I have setup a dns zone for renegatus.net.au and put in both an A and MX record for zimbra.renegatus.net.au...despite this, whenever I start the install, it always complains about not being able to resolve my dns...even though my internal windows dns is setup correctly and my external mx records are also pointing to the right direction.

    This is the output for the zimbra install log...notice initilising documents doesn't fail, it just sits there...I did an install a couple of days ago and left it overnight and the next morning it was still just sitting there...

    Tue Mar 10 16:58:31 2009 Finished installing common zimlets.
    Tue Mar 10 16:58:31 2009 checking isEnabled zimbra-store

    Tue Mar 10 16:58:38 2009 *** Running as zimbra user: /opt/zimbra/bin/zmprov mc default zimbraFeatureNotebookEnabled TRUE

    If anyone could be of any help I really would appriciate it. I'm looking to replace exchange 2007 with zimbra but obviously I need to at least get it running first! ;-)

    Thanks in advance!

    Your hosts file is incorrect, it should look like this (as per the Quick Start Installation Guide):

    Code:
    127.0.1.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
    10.0.0.5 zimbra.renegatus.net.au zimbra
    The correct commands to use for a dig would therefore be:

    Code:
    dig renegatus.net.au mx
    dig renegatus.net.au any
    and you should also try this:

    Code:
    host `hostname`  <--type that exactly and use backticks not single quotes
    Those commands should all be run on the Zimbra server.
    Regards

    It's called a Split DNS and is covered in this wiki article.

    The only entries required in the resolv.conf is the one that points to your LAN DNS server not any external server and the 'search statement, see the Split DNS article.

    When you do a dig command you sue the domain name not the FQDN of your server. In your example it should be 'dig xxxxx.xxx mx'

    That response would be because you don't have a Split DNS and are using an external DNS server. The steps to fix and diagnose this type of problem have been covered ad infinitum in the forums.

    I think this correct, please confirm...

    Please post the output of the following:

    Code:
    cat /etc/hosts
    host `hostname`  <-- type that exactly and use backticks not single quotes.
    If they give the correct answer then you should remove any current (this is a test install isn't it?) install with './install.sh -u' (that will remove everything) then reinstall.
    Regards
