    Default Ubuntu 8.04 LTS 3GB RAM 64-bit

    I've installed ZIMBRA NE 5.0.18 on my server. I've read the split DNS installation guide, but my server is not in a DMZ. I can get everything to install, but cannot get mailboxd to run. I keep getting errors regarding the system being unable to create the java vm. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    A Split DNS is for any server running behind a Firewall or NAT router, is that a description of your set-up? Your hosts file is incorrect, it should be like this:

    Code:
    69.162.88.173 sofia.gregsphar.com sofia
    According to the output you've posted above you do not have valid DNS records for your Zimbra server in your DNS servers.

    Isn't there some issue with the JRE on Ubuntu-bit? Something like a conflict between the OS-installed JRE and the Zimbra-installed one? I'm running 32-bit now, but I seem to recall similar problems.

    Not much help, I know!!!

    In addition, there's no point in running a 64bit o/s on a 3GB machine.

    I can switch it over to 32-bit, it doesn't really matter to me, I just want to make it work.

    Do you also have a valid A record? You initial dig command in post #2 shows no valid DNS records. Were these commands run on the Zimbra server? Post the output of the following run on your Zimbra server:

    Code:
    cat /etc/hosts
    cat /etc/resolv.conf
    dig gregsphar.com any
    dig gregsphar.com nx
    host `hostname`  <-- use that exact command with backticks not singkle wuotes
    Just as a matter of interest, do both of the DNS servers listed in your resolv.conf contain identical entries for your domain info?

    You actually have an internet facing server with no firewall, no NAT, not in a DMZ and on a Public IP address - is that what you're saying?
