    Lightbulb Zimbra on FC5

    Hello,

    I have just one question:

    I have registred domain name: mydomain.com
    I opened subdomain webmail.mysdomain.com that points to hosting machine
    with webserver (Apache, Mysql, PHP, ISP config). This hosting machine is
    not shared (it is my hosting machine).

    What do I have to put for hostname (and after Zimbra checks DNS MX
    records) when Zimbra asks me?

    Do I have to put webmail.mydomain.com?

    I do not understand this part of instalation?


    Thanks
    Nikola

    What is the FQDN of the server you're installing Zimbra on? Are you sure you want a subdomain called 'webmail.mydomain.com', what's it for?

    When I come to domainname I got this:
    No DNS MX records point to this machine.

    I make test.teamnet.co.yu and it points to 82.208.195.21 machine where I want to run zimbra.

    Do I have to install DNS server on this machine or not?
    I am doing this for the first time.

    If you are running this machine behind a firewall then you probably need a split DNS set-up on your LAN, have a look at these instructions.

    phoenix can I give you SSH acces with root username and password to try to install Zimbra?

    I am not sure that I am doing things right.

    It is fairly easy to set-up a DNS server, I'm a linux novice and I did it.

    If the FQDN of your server is test.teamnet.co.yu and it's on a LAN IP of 192.168.1.10 then you'd need the following information in the zone file

    Code:
    ;
    ;       Addresses and other host information.
    ;
    teamnet.co.yu       IN      SOA     test.teamnet.co.yu. root.teamnet.co.yu. (
                                   10118      ; Serial
                                   43200      ; Refresh
                                   3600       ; Retry
                                   3600000    ; Expire
                                   2592000 )  ; Minimum
    ;       Define the nameservers and the mail servers
    @          IN      NS         test.teamnet.co.yu.
    @          IN      MX        10 test.teamnet.co.yu.
    @	   IN	   A	       192.168.1.10
    test        IN      A   192.168.1.10
    mail1     IN      CNAME  test
    mail2     IN      CNAME  test
    There also a thread here that should help.
    Regards
