    Default [SOLVED] Hosts Issue ?

    Hello its my first post, so i'm sorry if I do anything wrong.

    I'm having the exact same problem here...

    During the installation i receive the msg:

    --
    DNS ERROR resolving debian.IMAGINE.corp
    It is suggested that the hostname be resolveable via DNS
    Re-Enter hostname [Yes]
    --

    I'm on an educational institution which Internet domain(for the emails) is EXAMPLE.edu.br(like, the website should be www.example.edu.br) and my Active Directory is using IMAGINE.corp as the local network domain.

    Since this webmail will have external access(Internet), I'd like to know what to do.

    In my /etc/hosts file, it has:

    XXX.YYY.QQQ.EEE debian.EXAMPLE.corp debian
    127.0.0.1 localhost

    So, in AD I tried and created an MX record in the DNS zones called debian.example.corp, returned to the installation and tried again... Didn't work...

    It keeps asking me to "Re-Enter hostname"...


    Please help...

    Welcome to the forums

    First of all your /etc/hosts file is incorrect as it should look like
    Code:
    127.0.0.1           localhost.localdomain localhost
    your.ip.address         FQDN yourhostname
    And please post the following so we can check everything
    Code:
    cat /etc/hosts
    cat /etc/resolv.conf
    dig example.corp mx
    dig example.corp any
    host `hostname` <- note backticks and not single quotes

    As your server FQDN contains imagine.corp that needs to be a MX record that is resolvable to your Zimbra server.
