after attempting 3 installs of ZCS (one of the network trial, and twice with the open source), I'm pretty sure I've got all the install wrinkles ironed out. Notably Ubuntu 8.04 LTS Server (Hardy Heron) Install Guide - Zimbra :: Wiki and
ATTN: Ubuntu 8.04 Users
I suspect, after reading the zimbra.log files, and googling for the key words, that these two bugs might be related to my problem:
Bug 33221 – Need clarity on supporting nfs mounted zimbra directories - report error/msg if nfs mount is present
Bug 15217 – disk space check does not account for multiple mounts on /opt/zimbra
I have /opt mounted on an NFS share on my NAS server. Since Zimbra is running in a VM on a host optimized for VMs (and not disk storage, nor backup) can anyone please confirm or deny that the current version(*) of ZCS DOES NOT WORK WITH /opt mounted on an NFS export/share?
And if it does work, can someone please inform me of the best way to get help understanding the various errors in zimbra.log?
Thanks in advance!
here's the reason I suspect NFS from the logs:
The zimbra user can operate on /opt/zimbra, and there is lots of space. Here's the real situation:
Apr 14 13:27:54 zimhost zimbramon: 5311:info: Availble disk space on /opt/zimbra is below threshold of 100. Mbytes available.
The ownership of directories and files within /opt/zimbra is a mix of root and zimbra. This is 'as-installed'.
