    Question problem: Initializing ldap...failed. (28928)

    I'm trying to install ZCS 6.0.9 GA Release on CentOS 5 server.

    When running the /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmsetup.pl script, it says
    Initializing ldap...failed. (28928)
    And I check the log file, the problem is:
    Mon Nov 22 13:56:17 2010 *** Running as zimbra user: /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmldapinit
    IO::Socket::INET: connect: No route to host at /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmldapinit line 136.
    Mon Nov 22 13:56:59 2010 failed. (28928)
    I searched the forum and found it seems to be a DNS problem, but I can't find out what the exact problem is.

    Some detailed configuration of my server is:

    cat /etc/hosts
    # Do not remove the following line, or various programs
    # that require network functionality will fail.
    127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
    ::1 localhost6.localdomain6 localhost6
    127.0.0.1 ud60120
    112.125.36.68 cloudapply.org cloudapply
    cat /etc/resolv.conf

    nameserver 10.247.10.2

    The 'exact' problem is that you do not have a valid /etc/hosts file and you have no valid DNS A & MX records. Go to the Split DNS article and follow the set-up from that, you can check if the set-up is correct by running the commands in the 'Verify...' section of that article when you made the necessary changes.
