    Default Zcs6 Dns Drama

    I'm trying to install zimbra on fedora 11. I've spent hours searching forums and trying stuff. I'm still off somehow. Any help would be much appreciated. Below is the output of the usually requested info commands.

    running zmsetup.pl

    Default

    Your DNS returns no information for the MX record for your domain pydoh.com, your hosts file is also incorrect and should contain only the following:

    Code:
    127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.localdomain
    173.203.127.229 mail.pydoh.com mail
    That assumes that your IP address is correct and that's the FQDN of your ZImbra server. Is this server behind a NAT router or firewall? If it is you'll need a Split DNS set-up. So, you need to fix the hosts file and add the MX record for your domain and also the SPlit DNS (if necessary).

    When you've done that you should try the dig commands (and the host `hostname`) again and see if you get the correct output. Post again if you're still having problems or questions.
    Regards
