    Default Zimbra DNS Resolvation error

    Dear all,

    I am trying to install ZCS 7.1.0 RHEL5_64 in my CentOS 5.5 64bit with the --platform-override. Everything goes fine until my DNS resolvation.

    My hostname is mail.myfriend.co.in and my DNS records are managed by my domain registrar. The A record points to my public IP. and the MX record mail.myfriend.co.in also points to my public IP. I have done port forwarding of port numbers 22, 25, 80, 443, 143, 993, 110, 995, 389, 7025, 194 to my local IP 192.168.2.25.

    Here i have attached my installation procedure and the error msg. as a text file (dns-resolvation). and also i here are the entries in my /etc/hosts file and the /etc/resolv.conf file.

    cat /etc/hosts

    127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost

    123.76.231.54 mail.myfriend.co.in mail

    cat /etc/resolv.conf

    search myfriend.co.in

    nameserver 8.8.8.8

    nameserver 8.8.4.4

    please look for the error in the attachment and guide me. what is the additional configuration has to be done.

    The answer to this question is all over the forums and the wiki, go to the Split DNS article and follow the instructions there.

    Default DNS resolvation

    Dear phoenix,

    But all my DNS related stuffs are managed by domain provider where i have registered myfriend.co.in.

    there i have pointed my A record and MX record to my public IP.

    A records:

    myfriend.co.in -> public IP
    mail.myfriend.co.in -> public IP

    MX record

    mail.myfriend.co.in -> public IP

    Go to the article and read the details on why you need it (you're behind a NAT router) then follow those instructions.

    Default Zimbra DNS Resolvation error

    Is it must to configure the DNS with public IP in my local system where I am Installing zimbra ?
    Because the DNS management is done by my domain registrar and so that only i have just entered the mx record and my public IP in my /etc/hosts.

    No, you don't do that. Go to the wiki article and follow the instructions there, how many times do you want me to tell you the same thing - according to your first post you're behind a NAT router and you will need a Split DNS set-up.

    Please apologise me, I am little confused about the above said wiki article, please please explain me how to setup split DNS in ubuntu 10.04. Now I am trying it in ubuntu 10.04 64bit.

    Because there is not only one named.conf file in my system. It has named.conf, named.conf.local, named.conf.orig etc. please guide me configuring the split DNS in ubuntu 10.04 server.

    I found these messages in zimbra log.

    May 13 07:10:58 mail postfix/qmgr[3482]: 29E1D3087AD: from=, size=1047, nrcpt=1 (queue active)

    This is because I am unable to send and receive mails from other domains such as gmail, yahoo, my another domain etc.,
