    Question Zimbra Multiple Server Installations

    Hello,
    I just a bit confused :confused : , I played this zimbra with my spare machine and it was great and awesome. My question is.. example since i have my mail1 zimbra mail server and i want to make multiple server from zimbra and my second mail server will be named mail2. Is Zimbra mail1 since this is the primary mail server will receive all mails, correct me if im wrong, since i have mail2 and the installation process is multiple server, does this two machine will sync the whole email content from mail1 going to mail2? like all inbox, sent items, calendars, address book, Tags, and the briefcase.

    Can someone give me a brief explanations and what is the advantage if im going to make multiple server on zimbra?

    What I'm looking for is that when my mail1 got problems with hardwares or harddisk failures, I just want to minimize my downtime period just up the backup mail server mail2.


    Thanks,
    Philip

    Welcome to the forums

    You would need the Network Edition to perform clustering and high availability.

    If you want another server to become active when your main server goes down you need a cluster set-up - the only supported cluster at the moment is RHEL4 Cluster. If you want your load (depending on the number of users) spread over other servers then you use the multi-server set-up.

    Default Zimbra Multiple Server Installations

    Thanks phoenix for the reply, but RHEL4 cluster is for free? Right now im just building up the machine as a demo unit first and show it to the management.. I was hoping that by doing the multiple zimbra server installations can also sync the two mail zimbra servers like a script that will run. I agree to what you had said that cluster from RHEL4 will do the work but I was hoping that there will be another way for now.

    Do you have any URL's or a manual maybe for the RHEL4 clustering?

    Thank you,
    Philip
