    Default Question about initial setup menu

    I'm trying to install the community edition to get some experience with Zimbra and see if I want to use it for a business I support at which point we'll probably change to a licensed edition.

    I'm trying to install on a stand along Centos (really Oracle Enterprise Linux) and there's no LDAP server in the environment but it's asking for a bunch of LDAP info. What should I put for this or better yet how can I avoid it trying to access LDAP?

    thanks,
    Bill

    I'm sure you know this but Oracle Enterprise is not a supported platform and I don't know how different it is to CentOS or RHEL (Zimbra works on both of those platforms). Can I assume you installed all the Zimbra packages when you were asked during the install script? If you're behind a NAT router or firewall have you set-up a Split DNS (you should)? Do you have a valid /etc/hosts file and DNS A & MX records pointing to the Zimbra server? Just for confirmation, post the output of the following commands (run on the Zimbra server):

    Code:
    cat /etc/hosts
    cat /etc/resolv.conf
    dig yourdomain.com any
    dig yourdomain.com mx
    host `hostname`  <- use that exact command with backticks not single quotes
    Regards

    I'm currently working at Oracle (as a contractor) so was trying that to see if it would work. It's essentially a centos clone, same version numbers and such even but I'll go ahead and grab the latest CentOS 5.5 and try it with that.

    I did add everything the Zimbra install script wanted.

    For now I'm just testing internally so my internal DNS server should be all I need, not expecting the system to be available to the internet.

    Just not sure why it prompts for all of that LDAP stuff when I asked it not to install LDAP connectivity.

    I assume the Oracle will be OK but I was just clarifying that it's not supported and therefore an unknown quantity.

    That's good but you don't want to install the proxy (if you've done that) on a single server.

    You're required to install the Zimbra LDAP and you will need valid DNS records and hosts file as I mentioned above.

    Ah, I wasn't aware LDAP was required. (guess I need to read more).

    Will the installer take care of all the LDAP stuff I need since there isn't any other LDAP in the environment to connect to?

    Yes, the installer will do it all and the only thing you should need to do is set the Admin password (via the set-up menu) at the end of the process.
