    Default [SOLVED] Initializing ldap...failed. (29440)

    Hey!

    Just installed 5.0.16 but during Installation I got an error:

    Code:
    Initializing ldap...failed. (29440)
    
    ERROR
    
    Configuration failed
    
    Please address the error and re-run /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmsetup.pl to
    complete the configuration.
    
    Errors have been logged to /tmp/zmsetup.05132009-094852.log
    I looked at the log file and there was:

    Code:

    I tried to stop all zimbra services then i killed all services that were still running.
    After that I uninstalled zimbra by using ./install.sh -u

    Does any one have any items as to how to over come this problem ?

    Thx zeus

    This problem has been asked and answered many times in the forums, please search. The problem is likely to the fact you don't have valid DNS A & MX records, you'll need a split DNS set-up.

    I know that may people had such a problem but my Server is on a public IP not in a NAT Network. So I can't believe that I need a split DNS set-up.

    I have a static Public IP and a Dyndns Domain Name.

    In that case, I guess you have a firewall? If so, you still need a split DNS. Do give full information about your configuration when posting in the forums.

    Sorry!

    My Configuration:

    Debian 4r7 with exim4 removed
    Zimbra 5.0.16
    Dyndns Domain xxx.selfip.com
    static IP
    iptables:
    Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)
    target prot opt source destination
    ACCEPT tcp -- anywhere anywhere tcp dpt:ssh
    DROP tcp -- anywhere anywhere
    DROP icmp -- anywhere anywhere

    Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT)
    target prot opt source destination

    Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT)
    target prot opt source destination



    Edit:
    The Problem is DynDns.org
    This service does not support an MX entry to the same Domain Name
    abc.selfip.com with MX to abc.selfip.com does not work
    you have to add another DNS for MX entry

    abc.selfip.com with MX to 123.selfip.com works
