    Hi Folks,

    I am totaly new in zimbra mail server. I have my Exchange Infra configured and i wanted to replace my exchange Infra with new Zimbra infra. now i wanted to install zimbra collaboration suite (open source) on my cen os server in cluster environment. I have min 300 to max 2000 users will be host on this zimbra server. I wanted to know the basic hardware & software requirement to set up ZCS on centos cluster and step by step process to install it including cluster on centos. can any one help me to configure this setup and provide me the documents for the same.

    Thank you,

    Regards,
    Mahi_nix

    Talking

    My understanding of the Zimbra versions is that for this you would have to go with either standard or pro versions. Please see attached compare document

    Also, CentOS is not an officially supported OS. Please see system requirements page 2.

    I have attached the cluster install steps for Redhat. The documentation page also has some really good info.

    hope this helps!

    I prefer Ubuntu and am interested in doing the same thing. So if I find the step by step for Ubuntu I will post it here as well for you.

    Do note that RHCS is no longer supported from ZCS 8 onwards, for further information on what is supported please read the ZCS 8 beta Release Notes.

    I have read over that and wanted to ask you, does this mean that the only way to cluster or HA will be to use vCenter and vSphere?

    No, it means that the only officially tested and supported cluster is the VMware HA cluster infrastructure. You can install ZCS on any cluster or HA service of your choice but whether it works is another matter and there is no official support from Zimbra for any other cluster configuration.
