    Default Very confusing problem

    Hi could anyone please tell me what needs to go in /etc/hosts file , if i am testing zimbra on my local machine only.

    I have zcs 7.1.2 . But before we make it live we are going to test on my machine . It is a
    centos 5.3.
    the hostname is august
    it will be installed on localhost .

    so what needs to be in hosts and resolve.conf file ?

    because the installer gets stuck in DNS ERROR.

    Basically it cant resolve my hosts file.

    Help needed.
    Cheers

    I thought we'd covered this with you in previous threads? The answer to this is all over the forums and in the Split DNS article, read that article for the details of what's needed and how to check the configuration before you install Zimbra.

    Well, if you would look into my previous threads then you will see that I never had this problem before.

    p.s i am trying to install this on my localhost . it wont be required by anyone else so do i still need to do dns split thingy?

    I've no intention of searching through all of your previous thread, hence the reason I asked the question.

    Of course you do, this also can't be installed on 'localhost' and you need to install it correctly as described in the instructions.

    Did you read my previous comment about installing this on 'localhost'? If that wasn't clear then I'll restate it, you need to install this on a machine that has an FQDN and the correct Split DNS records (and hosts file) need to reference the IP of that machine using those DNS records, you can use all the commands in the 'Verify...' section of that article to confirm the correct settings.
    Regards

    Dude. I had 6.02 on my machine before this and it worked fine . We have 6.02 on our server machine which is used by everyone in company. But i have a same version installed on mine to check stuff before making it live.
    So it does work fine , as far as 6.02 was concerned. Now to test 7.1.2 i need to install on my machine first . which i have done and now i can log in admin console but normal user console is not accessible .

    I dont understand your comment " you need to install this on a machine that has an FQDN and the correct Split DNS records "

    Then you need to look in the log files for any errors.

    It means exactly what it says, you need valid DNS records and correct hosts file - you can read the requirements and how to confirm the setting in the Split DNS article.

    Phoenix , Thank you for your replies . But like always you never seem to help in anyway or form . You simple state the obvious . Its just a feedback and not anything else so dont go banning me.

    For those who want a solution to problem like the above :

    The solution was to use 7072 port for normal web interface and 7071 for admin console.

    In future I'll leave you to it.

    I may state the obvious but you never seem to follow any advice nor do you bother to provide information that you're asked for about your problem.

    That's rather a puerile comment, why would you be banned from the forums for stating the obvious?

    I'm afraid that isn't the solution, the correct port for the Web UI is port 80 or 443 (if you're using SSL) unless there's something else you're failing to tell us?
