    Default Network edition on openSuse 10.1

    ...The OS's we currently support are:

    Mac OSX (.dmg) PPC

    Mac OSX (.dmg) INTEL

    Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 (.tgz) 32 Bit

    Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 (.tgz) 64 Bit

    openSUSE 10 (.tgz)

    SUSE ES9 (.tgz)
    Okay, silly question time. openSUSE 10 is supported for the network edition. Will this work for openSUSE 10.1? I have spent the weekend (so far) trying to install the network edition on openSUSE 10.1 without success. It seemed resonable that 10 -> 10.1 would be likely to work since it is only a very small incremental change.

    During install, zimbra says the platform is UNKNOWN.... Hmmm...first clue! I proceeded anyway, fixed the /etc/sudoers permission problem but still the install fails. Install fails while trying to (re)build the crontab. "no crontab for zimbra Rebuilding backup cron" and then "ERROR Schedule specification required".

    So, do I need to download openSUSE 10.0 instead of 10.1?

    unfortunately despite the minor point bump 10.0->10.1 was a major change, and 10.1 has only recently become stable and viable with the remastered release. particularly for the network edition, use *exactly* the version it says on the tin.

    You should also be aware that when the SLES 10 version of Zimbra is released it's likely that support for openSuSE will stop. If you're just testing then openSuse 10 should be fine.

    Yes, I am just testing... BUT...
    Right now, we are using Zimbra Open Source Edition on Ubuntu Dapper. I want to try the Zimbra Network Edition. Since this is not available on a Debian based system (what a shame!), I am trying it on Opensuse 10.0.

    I could go purchase RH4, however, this is merely a test. Also, I do not care for RH. I have used it in the past.. and I have only one server with RH still installed. After it is taken out of service, all of our servers will be Debian based.

    If this test is successful, I intended to recommend to my company that we go with the Network edition.

    It would be very unfortunate if, after I get this Network version working using openSuse that I would be unable to upgrade it in the future. That makes me pause in considering the Network Edition at all.

    Well, what can I say?

    In my opinion, it's 'tools for the job' and if Zimbra suits your purpose and it's supported on RHEL then why not use that? RHEL seems to be a fairly popular one in my limited experience and you could, at a push, probably get away with using CentOS if the subscription for RHEL bothers you. The final choice is always up to you, of course.
