    Default LDAP problem installaing 4.0.1 on CentOS 4.4

    I'm trying to install zcs-4.0.1_GA_324.RHEL4.tgz on new installed Centos 4.4 i386
    All is fine until..
    --------------------------------------------------
    Write out database with 1 new entries
    Data Base Updated
    unable to write 'random state'
    Signature ok
    subject=/C=US/ST=NA/L=NA/O=Zimbra/OU=Zimbra/CN=mail1.datalinesweden.se
    Getting CA Private Key
    unable to write 'random state'
    chmod: cannot access `/jre/lib/security/cacerts': No such file or directory
    Done

    Initializing ldap...
    *** Running as zimbra user: /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmldapinit

    ERROR - failed to start slapd

    FAILED (256)
    ----------------------------------------

    I've tried symbolic link advice for libssl.so.5 and libcrypt.so.5 and also to remove UTF-8 stuff from I8n, no success.
    The path '/jre/lib/security/cacerts' in the failing chmod commad seems strange? has th install script chrooted or should the path be relative to /opt/zimbra...

    Anyone having any clues?

    What is in the logs about the ldap failure? You could also have a look at the wiki details for troubleshooting.

    Default I suppose it's a LDAP problem..

    As the log says..

    Initializing ldap...
    *** Running as zimbra user: /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmldapinit

    ERROR - failed to start slapd

    And the error before it was a problem with chmod an cacerts.

    I'm now trying to set up 4.0.1 with suse 10.0 to be certain that zimbra works in my environment. I had a working test setup vith suse earlier.

    I'd like to use suse 10.1 instead of 10.0 due to install problems with 10.0 and software raid. So to be able to use a installed zimbra server with all partitions as raid volumes i tried 10.1 with zimbra, no go. After that Centos 4.4...

    I didnt spend to much time to get each setup to work, I'm searching for a test setup that works with a clean installed OS and zimbra. My only requirment is a relatively new distro that will work with security updates for at least 2 years and being able to have swap, (boot) and root as software raid. And the setup should allow a kernel update without any driver issues..

    My goal is to get zimbra up and running and if stable for a few weeks convert to the network version..

    Any suggestions for a good distro/zimbra combination?

    CentOS + Zimbra is very stable...
    Fresh setup of CentOS, obviously.

    Yes, CentOS & Zimbra 4.0.1 - it's what I'm using.

    One other thing, did you disable SElinux & the firewall on CentOS when you installed Zimbra?

    If you're going to go to the Network Edition of Zimbra you do realise that it's only Supported on RHEL, SuSE ES 9, SuSE 10 (this will stop in the not too distant future) & MAC OSX don't you?

    Default Yes..

    CentOS looks really good, not as much config as in SuSE/Yast, but Gnome seems faster.. I used SuSE, but CentOS looks really good... I'm missing XFS file system which handles large volumes of small files good. Ext3 will do if I manage to get CentOS/Zimbra working.

    I really liked the test setup with SuSE 10.0 (w/o raid...) and Zimbra. My impression was: The best product/product install I ever testes for Linux. So I'm really keen on getting it to work.

    My failing test setup was a fresh installed Centos 4.4 and Zimbra RHEL 4.0.1. Zimbra install.sh didnt complain about anything until the chmod/sladp problem.

    Default Re: Phoenix/Yes, CentOS & Zimbra 4.0.1...

    Yes.. I'm almost sure that SELinux and firewall was disabled. (I can remember being wrong about things..) But I will give it another go..

    I suppose that you or anyone can confirm what steps is needed to do to get the CentOS/Zimbra combination to install..

    BTW, you didn't do a minimal or full install of CentOS did you? Which options did you choose when you did the install?

    Default CentOS installation..

    I did a ''minimal'' custom config, with gnome, fetchmail, mc and install.sh seemed pleased with it.. I was somewhat confused with the Centos setup, I was not able to search for packages. I had to open up each item and look throu each list.. Did I miss a menu?

    I was looking for info about what setup model to use. Found nothing.
    Do you have any advice regarding the setup?

    I will have another go at it during the evening..

    Thank you for your support!
    Henrik
