    Default [SOLVED] Fresh installation, cannot su - zimbra

    The wiki recommends that the final part of the installation on Ubuntu 8.04 LTS is to do

    Code:
    su - zimbra
    zmtlsctl https
    However, the su part prompts for a password, I type in the admin password that I set during configuration, but I get

    Code:
    su: Authentication failure
    The root password gives the same problem. Normal sudo works with the root password.

    Going to web-page https://192.168.0.36:7071/zimbraAdmin/ and logging in as admin and the config password works.

    Any ideas?

    Hi Des,
    You need root or sudo access inorder to sudo.

    So, sudo su - zimbra or su - root; su - zimbra

    Good luck

    prompted for the root account and then dropped into a shell on user zimbra.

    Thanks for the help
