    Post Zimbra password issue

    Hi,

    I've just installed Zimbra Network Edition on my Elitebook just for test purposes. However, when i try to do anything as a zimbra user and tries to do a command like "zmprov" or any other things i just get asked for a Zimbra password. I have tried running as root but it still keeps asking me for a password i haven't set. And when i try to reset the admin password this comes up:

    zimbra@zimbra:~$ zmprov sp admin@zimbra.empir.se admin
    [] INFO: I/O exception (java.net.ConnectException) caught when processing request: Connection refused
    [] INFO: Retrying request
    ERROR: zclient.IO_ERROR (invoke Connection refused, server: localhost) (cause: java.net.ConnectException Connection refused)

    When i check the status this is what i get.

    zimbra@zimbra:~$ zmcontrol start
    Host localhost
    Unable to determine enabled services from ldap.
    Unable to determine enabled services. Cache is out of date or doesn't exist.
    zimbra@zimbra:~$

    Anyone got a clue what may cause this? I'm doing my internship and i've just graduated high school and i'm studying for a year to be an technical college graduate.
    So you can see i'm quite new to all this.

    This has been asked and answered all over the forums and there's also a wiki article on the subject. Did you read the Release Notes and Installation Guide before you installed ZCS? You are required to have valid DNS A & MX records plus correct /etc/hosts & /etc/resolv.conf files - you have none of those (I'm guessing) so ZCS won't install correctly. ZCS should also be installed on a dedicated server not a laptop (?), go to the wiki (or search the forums) for "split DNS".

    I have a valid dns record. My hosts file looks like this:
    127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhosti
    192.168.100.244 zimbra.domain.se mail

    # The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
    ::1 ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
    fe00::0 ip6-localnet
    ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
    ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
    ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
    ff02::3 ip6-allhosts

    From what i've read that is how the hosts file is supposed to look like.
    It's installed on vmware on my laptop just because we want to test it before putting it on one of our linux servers.
    Shouldnt be any problems just testing it.

    You have wrong /etc/hosts :

    192.168.100.244 zimbra.domain.se mail

    It should be something like :

    192.168.100.244 zimbra.domain.se zimbra or

    192.168.100.244 mail.domain.se mail

    Both FQDN and hostname should be similar.
    Best Regards
