    Default Zimbra installation CentOS 5 using Windows dns server

    Hi,

    thanks for offering a community edition. I was trying to install Zimbra for the past 3 months but no success. I'm using windows server dns.

    when I connect to the administration console it keep saying "connecting..."
    here is my logs. I've already 23 tab opened in my browser in Zimbra forums but I couldn't find much help in them nor in #zimbra@freenode

    cat /etc/hosts
    Code:
    # Do not remove the following line, or various programs
    # that require network functionality will fail.

    The simple answer is you have no DNS A or MX records for pointing to your Zimbra server LAN IP for the domain alsayedlinux.com (it doesn't matter whether you have Windows or Linux DNS server) and you can see that from the results of your dig commands, this has been covered many times in the forums.

    I've searched the forum for setting dns in windows for zimbra but I couldn't find any guide. could some one help please.

    we have M$ exchange and we want to replace it with an open source mail system.

    You need to create A & MX records in your DNS server that point to the LAN IP of your Zimbra server. If you don't know how to do that you should ask whoever administers your DNS server to do it for you.

    The alternative would be to install a Split DNS using something like BIND on your Zimbra server. I've already said there are plenty of threads in the forums that describe what's necessary and how to test the DNS configuration once you've set-up your DNS server.
