    Default Screen Lock Issues

    I have just installed Zimbra 7.1.3 GA Release Open Source on a Ubuntu Desktop 10.04 LTS Box. Everything works fine except for when the screen locks. Once the screen locks I cannot get back into the machine because the login box won't even show. If you move the mouse or touch the keyboard you see the cursor for just a moment. I tried another box and the same thing happens once I install Zimbra (I think I even tried Zimbra 6.0.14 on that box). I can still access the services from other machines. Any help would be appreciated

    hi, drabell13.

    Are you using Ubuntu Desktop 10.04 LTS, the documentation mentions about install ZCS in Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Server as a supported platform.

    Regards.

    I have the same problem btw, you are not alone.

    I now only use the console from a remote computer. Damn annoying.

    Yes I am using Desktop. I have used the desktop edition for many other types of servers and never had issues before. Right now I have just disabled the screen lock function until I can resolve the issue.

    Question

    Curious...why use the desktop version instead of the server? Is it for the built-in GUI? A GUI can be installed (and later removed) on a server.

    Type su - zimbra -c "zmcontrol -v" to get your version and copy that into your profile (more info here)

    A word of caution.

    Result of uname -a in my Ubuntu 10.04.3 LTS

    Linux mail.domain.com 2.6.32-34-server #77-Ubuntu SMP Tue Sep 13 20:54:38 UTC 2011 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    Note that it's a Linux Kernel with "server" included, it's means differences between Desktop and Server Editions, not just a GUI.

    So, for a production system, use the server edition.

    Take a look http://www.serverwatch.com/tutorials...iderations.htm

    Regards.
