    Question Dns Error

    I am trying to install 6.06 onto an Centos 5.4 x64 vmware client for testing. OS is all patched to latest goodies.

    Problem is that I keep getting "DNS ERROR resolving ..." error during the install. The name resolves (via ping) both on the local vmclient and within the lab LAN. If I leave it alone, I get an fatal LDAP error in the logs.

    The DNS server is an Untangle box. Can't find where to enter any needed MX records in it (another issue there). Can this be an issue?

    Any guidance would be greatly appreciated. I have a customer that wants an overview of the Zimbra project Monday morning and all I have is multiple install issues.

    Search the wiki and the forums for 'split dns', you should also read the Quick Start Installation Guide (and the forums) on what's required for RAM and the /etc/hosts file.

    This is way beyond the quick start guide.

    I think I will peel off one of my unused domains from the redirect, fire up a Rackspace server and see if it will make a better test platform. I have three clients interested now, so it may be a better demo for them.

    THanks for the prompt reply.

    If your server is behind a NAT router you'll need a Split DNS set-up (do you have one?) and a valid /etc/hosts file (do you) the details of which are in the quick start guide. If you're getting DNS errors then I'd suggest your records are incorrect and possibly your hosts file.

    Hello

    The problem is that when you try to resolve the domain which will be tied to the mail service, can not find it verifies that the domain name is pointed to the corresponding ip and also have it declared locally (hosts file)
