    Unhappy Zimbra 4, OS 10.4.7 and NAT Howto?

    Is there a howto for setting up Zimbra 4 on OS 10.4.7 that is running on an internal net (10.0.0.*)? I ran the .pkg and that installed with no issues. Ran zmsetup.pl and that had all kinds of errors. Refused to correctly lookup MX. Then errors galore of the type, "ERROR: service.FAILURE (system failure: getDirectContext) (cause: javax.naming.CommunicationException cavern-one.myfamily.private:389)"

    The domain (cavern-one.myfamily.private)listed above is the correct domain and is resolvable via the internal DNS server as shown:

    cavern-one:~ me$ host -t mx myfamily.private
    myfamily.private mail is handled by 10 cavern-one.myfamily.private.
    cavern-one:~ me$ host cavern-one.myfamily.private
    cavern-one.myfamily.private has address 10.0.0.50
    cavern-one:~ mark$ host 10.0.0.50
    50.0.0.10.in-addr.arpa domain name pointer cavern-one.myfamily.private.

    Setup:
    DLINK Router - Provides only NAT (Not wanting this accessible from outside)
    Xserve - Provides DNS, LDAP and DHCP to the clients.
    DHCP - Configured with the Xserver as the primary DNS server.
    Clients - Configured via DHCP from Xserve
    Xserve is OS 10.4.7 server. 512MB ram. G4
    Cavern-one is OS 10.4.7 client. 2.5GB ram G5

    Currently, I have no interest to have this accessible from the outside world.
    Any help would be apreciated.

    What does cavern-one think its hostname is via the 'hostname' command? Is there an entry in /etc/hosts in the form
    10.0.0.50 cavern-one.myfamily.private cavern-one
    Is myfamily.private listed as the domain or in the search path in /etc/resolv.conf? Once you resolve the detection of DNS issues you'll have a better chance of ldap starting and getting the install to properly complete.

    You got an ldap server already runnning? Turn it off.

    You got a firewall running? Turn it off.

    Output from hostname is:
    cavern-one:~ mark$ hostname
    cavern-one.myfamily.private

    cavern-one:~ mark$ cat /etc/resolv.conf
    domain local
    nameserver 10.0.0.2

    There is not an ldap server running on the machine I wish to run Zimbra on. There is an Open Directory (ldap) running on an xserve which handles authentication and other Apple stuff for all of the other computers on the network.

    The firewall was not turned on.
