    Default Installing ZCS 8. on Ubuntu 12.

    Hi everybody,
    I am trying to install ZMC 8. on Ubuntu server 12. After extracting zimbra files, I run install.sh (using sudo) and I found there are some dependencies that need to be installed. I tried to use "apt-get install" followed by packages' names. When it ran, error messages came out for all packages. It state that it can not get the server. The server that I am using is linked with Internet. I don't know what is the reason for this error? Any help

    Then you need to investigate why it can't connect to the server, I'd suggest it's a problem connecting to the Ubuntu 'package server' and it's not a Zimbra problem.

    First, it was a typo ZCS.

    Second, I checked the Internet connectivity (by several means including ping) and it is OK. The server can access the Internet. One thing, is there any specific thing that should be done with apt-get (or aptitude)?

    I've no idea, I don't use Ubuntu (and never will) and I think 'apt' is not a good package manager. I'd suggest you ask on a Ubuntu specific forum.

    Is there an error message in the apt-get command?

    Maybe you need to update your package database with:
    apt-get update

    then upgrade your packages with:
    apt-get upgrade

    the reboot and redo to make sure everything is up to date.

    One other possibility: if you are running multiple sessions, and there is another one already performing an "apt-get install" then it locks the apt-get until it is finished...

    In any case, ubuntu seems to be the problem...

    I have successfully installed on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS with Zimbra 7 then upgraded to Zimbra 8, then updated to 8.0.4 yesterday.

    Everything is working fine here.

    All you need to do is install the missing components using apt-get.

    For example, if the install script says that sqlite3 is missing, run this command:

    Code:
    apt-get install sqlite3
    (You must be root)

    On a stock install of 12.04, there are 5 missing packages. You can download them all at once using this command:

    Code:
    apt-get install libgmp3c2 libperl5.14 sysstat pax sqlite3

    That would be a good solution except for the fact that the first post states that running apt-get doesn't connect to an update server to install those files.

    Thanks a lot. I re-installed Ubuntu and then re-installed Zimbra and it went OK. I tried to create accounts and to access using Zimbra desktop on Windows systems (2 PCs) but it didn't worked. I sent and email from one PC to the other, it looked OK with the sender, but on the receiver side nothing is there !!? I didn't spent time investigating it yet, I will next week and send you the inof.

    I think you may have a DNS issue (Domain Name System)

    Make sure BIND (DNS server) is installed and properly configured.
