    Hallo,

    but toward the end it gets stuck and gives me this error message.

    done.

    I'd suggest you remove the current installation with the following command:
    Code:
    ./install.sh -u
    That will remove everything from the system (according to your output above the install has been run multiple times, not a good idea).

    When you've done that I'd suggest your read the Quick Start Installation Guide and make sure your /etc/hosts file is set correctly. After that, make sure you have valid DNS A & MX records set by following the Split DNS set-up. You should also search the forums for details on how to check the configuration is correct (this has been covered and answered many times), if everything is OK then try the install again. If you still have problem then post some details of what you've done and the required information from your DNS records and hosts file and any errors in the install log or the Zimbra log files.
    Regards

    Instead of adding a 'me too' post to an old thread - your not likely to get much of an answer as the original poster only posted that one message and never replied. Did you also read my reply to the original post and follow the instructions in there?

    How about describing your exact problem and when it happens, include exact steps to reproduce the problem.

    You should also update your forum profile with the output of the following command (do not post the output in this thread):

    Code:
    zmcontrol -v
