    Question SUSE 10 vs SUSE ES 9

    I noticed that they are both released around the same time. Will the SUSE ES 9 work with Novell SLES 10? or is the SUSE 10 package more suited for Novell? Has anyone tried it out?

    We don't have SLES10 yet. SuSE 10 is for openSuse, not tested on SLES10.

    I suspect that they should be able to work though shouldn't they? How about the SUSE ES 9, which one is that for? Thx.

    Should and will are two different things. It seems more sensible (to me, at least) to run the operating system that zimbra requires rather than trying to make it fit on another distribution. It is your choice though.

    I don't really understand the question, it's meant for SuSE Enterprise Server 9 - doesn't that answer the question or is there something I'm missing?

    To get Zimbra to run on SLES10/SUSE10.1 requires some hacking of libraries - gmsmith has done it on SUSE10.1, SUSES ES9 is for SLES9 and SUSE9.1. They are very different to SLES10/SUSE10.1

    I'm sure the Zimbra team will have a SLES10 release soon now that it is out in the wild (I hope).

    I installed ZCS 4.0.0 under SUSE Linux 10.1 today

    http://kontrawize.blogs.com/kontrawi..._400_suse.html

    and didn't have any great issues, just needed to install the packages that Zimbra needs. The installation stops due to a permissions issue with "/etc/sudoers", but it tells you what to fix and how to restart the installation.

    I haven't been able to test the setup, as haven't been able to log in to the admin console yet (but perhaps that is because the VMware virtual server isn't yet on the production server with the appropriate mail server DNS setup). I'm still investigating the forum posts for ideas about that.

    Cheers, Tony.

    Ah, I find now that there are some issues, but they don't show up during the install. After installing, it helps to "su zimbra" and then do "zmcontrol stop" and "zmcontrol start".

    In my case, that showed up that Zimbra was looking for versions of "libexpat" and "libcurl" that didn't exist (and require symbolic links to fix).

    Cheers, Tony.

    Default /etc/sudoers too...

    And the permissions on /etc/sudoers will revert to the SuSE default after every reboot as well. We never got the logging functionality working either, so we just gave up trying to hack it for 32-bit SLES10 and installed ZCS on 32-bit OpenSuSE 10.0.

    Waiting patiently for 64-bit SLES 10 support...

    YMMV,
    Mark
