    Default Cannot start zimbra (fresh ubuntu 8.04 installation)

    Hello,
    read through the thread, similar threads did not solve my issue:

    I get:
    Host localhost
    Unable to determine enabled services from ldap.
    Unable to determine enabled services. Cache is out of date or doesn't exist.


    >dig mail.server.com mx
    does not have an answer section, even though the ISP claims its set properly,

    >dig mail.server.com any has a proper answer section with the ip address.

    I couldnt figure out the fqdn dig? How should my hosts file look like? resolv.conf is correct: it points to the two DNS name servers

    Can you please help a novice getting booted?

    Welcome to the forums

    If you server is on a private IP behind a firewall/router you will need to setup a Wiki :: Split DNS architecture. If you would post the following aswell we shall be able to help better
    Code:
    cat /etc/hosts
    cat /etc/resolv.conf
    dig yourdomain mx
    dig yourdomain any
    host `hostname` <- note backticks and not single quotes (type exactly)

    Code:
    host `hostname`
    do not replace hostname with your servername! Let the command work it out instead.

    host `hostname` yields:
    Host SJPbuntu not found 3(NXDOMAIN)

    Your hostname does not match what you have defined in /etc/hosts ! You need to resolve that first so check /etc/hostname.

    Apologies for thread jacking here... does the split DNS still apply if the firewall does DNS doctoring? IE: on a Cisco PIX a static translation would look like
    Code:
    static (dmz,outside) 172.20.1.10 10.10.10.10 netmask 255.255.255.255 dns
    providing the proper DNS lookup depending whether you are on the outside or inside.
