    Default Best way to setup domains

    I'm not quite sure how to explain what I'm wanting to do but here it goes. I want to create a domain abc.com. I want webmail accessible via internet over SSL at https://webmail.abc.com. However, I want people's email address to read bob@abc.com not bob@mail.abc.com. Let me know what you think. I've already have this installed, just looking for advice.

    Should be easy. Just set up DNS so webmail.abc.com and abc.com point at the Zimbra server. Also make sure you have a Mx record for abc.com pointing to the Zimbra IP. When you install create the mail domain of abc.com

    I figured as much, but being new to setting up a mail server I figured I'd ask people who know more about it. Again, thanks for such prompt responses.

    What about that bug regarding setting up abc.com when subdomain.abc.com is already set up...did anyone work around that yet?

    You need to delete subdomain.abc.com first. If you need to move users then you'll need to create a new dummy domain like foo.com and move the user's there, then delete subdomain.abc.com and finally create abc.com

    It is also possible to create the middle domain via LDAP commands only. Something like the following should work:

    modify this entry:

    Code:
    dn: dc=abc,dc=com
    objectClass: zimbraDomain
    zimbraId: 98c40334-952f-49e2-b54a-cf81811e1ac6
    zimbraDomainName: abc.com
    zimbraDomainType: local
    zimbraMailStatus: enabled
    The zimbraId should be globally unique. Using the above should be fine.

    create this entry:

    Code:
    dn: ou=people,dc=abc,dc=com
    objectclass: organizationalRole
    ou: people
    That is all that is needed to turn the existing "dc=abc,dc=com" entry into a recognized Zimbra domain. You'll probably need to restart tomcat as well.

    The bug is fixed in the next release.

    ok. i just made a temp domain, and then i went to delete the admin@curley.quirkservice.com user, and now i can't log in to the control panel. i didn't see a place to make admin@foo.com (the temp domain) an admin, so i figured it was an admin by default. guess not.

    any ideas? is there a command line method to add an admin?

    This should do it:

    Code:
    zmprov ma admin@foo.com zimbraIsAdminAccount TRUE
    You might need to restart tomcat for that to take effect...
