    Wink Install ZCS 6.03 on OpenSUSE 11.2 x64

    Install ZCS 6.0.x SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 64bit x86 on OpenSUSE 11.2


    Document revised from bigmudcake document. Installing ZCS 5.0.x on openSUSE 10.3 a complete guide.

    Note: I am still working on getting the status on the admin page to display correct information. Logs are not displaying any graphs

    1. Make sure the following packages are installed including associated dependencies otherwise the install will probably fail.
    (Note: no need to install compat-openssl097g)
    sysstat, fetchmail syslog-ng, syslogd and GMP

    2. Go to Software.openSUSE.org and search for gmp under the listed os OpenSUSE 11.1 look for x86_64 gmp-4.2.3-10.3.x86_64.rpm and install using the 1 Click install downgrade any other versions on OpenSUSE 11.2


    ITS REALLY IMPORTANT ALL PACKAGES MENTIONED ARE INSTALLED
    3. Run the following commands as root
    cp /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6 /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.5

    4. Remove any packages you do not need to run on your server, this makes your server simpler, faster and less likely to conflict with Zimbra.
    Unless your a Linux Expert, remove AppArmor, Apache, MySQL, OpenLDAP, Amavis, Spamassassin, but make sure Postfix is installed.

    5. Make sure your DNS server is setup correctly with the hostname having A and MX records.
    Also check the /etc/resolv.conf, /etc/host.conf, and /etc/nsswitch.conf files to make sure your DNS server is being accessed correctly.

    6. Make sure the hostname you wish to use is located in /etc/hosts file as a Fully Qualified Name (FQN).
    ex.: edit /etc/hosts file and make sure you have following
    127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
    10.1.1.3 mail2.server.com mail2

    7. Download the SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 64bit x86 Zimbra package and unpack using tar xzvf zimbra_package.tgz

    8. Turn off any conflicting services you may be running.
    i.e. for Postfix use the following commands:
    service postfix stop
    chkconfig postfix off
    It is recommended you turn off AppArmor and Firewall unless your a Linux expert.

    9. Start the installation process for Zimbra by running the following command from the zcs folder.
    ./install.sh --platform-override

    10. When the installation process stops at "This platform is UNKNOWN, Install anyway? [N]," press Y and Enter to continue.

    11. When the installation install zimbra-core open YAST2 Go to Users and Groups Administrator open zimbra user and un check disable user login.
    Note if password fail at anytime in the installation. Re run the installation.

    12. Run the following commands to restart the zimbra server so post-installation changes can take effect.
    su - zimbra
    zmcontrol stop
    zmcontrol start
    exit


    If anyone can help resolve getting the status on the admin page to display correct information. Logs displaying on graph

    Thanks

    at first: Thank you! THANK YOU!!!
    Really nice instructions for a Zimbra novice just like me.

    I managed to install ZCS on my OpenSUSE 11.2

    I had little trouble to find libgmp3 required for GMP version that you mentioned, but finally I forced installation of GMP and then install.sh worked OK.

    I will try to have a look at problems mentioned when I finalize the setup of the server.

    Again THANK YOU!

    Haven't yet fixed the problem with monitoring. However, I had a quick look into the sources... and if I'm not mistaken monitoring tools trying to read from zimbra-stats.log, which is completely empty for me.

    At same time zimbramon is dumping a LOT of info (not really readable) into the main log /var/log/messages. I think there is a problem with syslog config. I bet it's outputing info into the wrong log where admin panel doesn't find it.

    Hi,

    I do not remember now, but I think I found these packages in other repositories (not 11.0 or 11.1, but smth else)

    In any case I gave up on Zimbra for performance problems. It would be great if it would be possible to install Zimbra Web GUI on existing IMAP/SMTP server, but I do not think it's possible today.

    You'd be far better installing ZImbra on a supported platform, you won't have problem such as the one you're encountering here.

    Thank you Bill,

    Could you please advise me one that you have test it?

    Taking in account that zimbra will run on a dedicated Xen virtual machine.

    The host runs on Opensuse 11.2 Dom0

    Thanks in advance

    As this is running on xen then the only current version support is xen 64bit. Having said that, my recommendation would be to use CentOS as it's a binary compatible to RHEL and is one of the NE supported platforms.
