    Default ZCS on no-ip ... single server setup on RH5.8?

    All,

    New here but not afraid to ask questions.

    I am in the middle of some evals for a client who has asked to do some proof of concept work with Zimbra (they have had it with their Microsoft rep and are doing everything they can to reduce their annual maint with M$).

    They have about 5 users they want to setup in a parallel domain but have asked if I can help them setup a "remote" test.

    I've read the instructions about ZCS 5 and dynamic dns.
    Setting up Zimbra using a dynamic IP - Zimbra :: Wiki

    But what I am wondering about is if I can use a single server for everything.

    I am assuming I setup my MX records like this: (single host for all services at blahblah.no-ip.com as an example)

    CNAME = blahblah.no-ip.com


    But for the MX record, I don't want to use my CNAME, correct?

    Is there a more recent wiki or walk through that shows how this can be done? Not looking to setup a corporate website out there, just need to get a "quick and dirty" type of POC accomplished.

    What do you mean by 'parallel domain'? If it's another server in the same domain as their current server then you'd nee a Split Domain, if a different domain then just configure the DNS as you would for any mail server.

    I don't understand what you mean by this statement. If you mean one server for all of the Zimbra components then the answer is yes (probably). If the server meets the minimum specifications and specifically the amount of RAM, the more RAM the better.

    You shouldn't need a CNAME record for anything.

    Correct, it's never a good idea to use a CNAME to point to a mail server.

    The details in the article you've mentioned should be enough for your needs. Why are you actually using no-ip? You will need a Split DNS if the server is behind a NAT router but that's also mentioned in the article (and a separate Split DNS article in the wiki).
    Regards
