    Post [SOLVED] DNS Error Resolving MX

    Hello Zimbra community,

    The Error

    DNS ERROR resolving MX for zimbra.local-dns.com
    It is suggested that the domain name have an MX record configured in DNS
    Change domain name? [Yes]

    I've read plenty of threads about this issue. The host name works with my DNS, but it looks like the mail exchanger is not configured correctly. See my network information below.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    cat /etc/hosts

    127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
    **.**.205.36 zimbra.local-dns.com zimbra

    cat /etc/resolv.conf
    search localdomain
    nameserver **.**.204.122
    nameserver **.**.205.183

    dig local-dns.com mx

    ; <<>> DiG 9.3.4-P1 <<>> local-dns.com mx
    ;; global options: printcmd

    The correct answer to give at this point of the install is 'Y' and change the domain name to "local-dns.com" then continue with the installer.
