    Well, to trouble shoot all of you, might be difficult.

    Do you get an error message?
    Anything in the logs?

    I was running into the same thing on an install I was trying...

    There was in the logs (in /tmp/install.log.####) a recurring: hostname: Unknown host message.....how foreboding.

    Oops. I'd set the hostname on install to something other than what I'd then later setup in dns and /etc/hosts. [A week lapse between the fedora install and the zimbra install, and a weak lapse in memory, brought this about.]

    Changing the hostname made zimbra-spell install like a charm.

    I had the same issue, turned out that your servers hostname also needs to match what you put in the /etc/hosts file.

    I'm using CentOS so edited /etc/sysconfig/network and then did
    hostname new.host.name as it is in /etc/hosts

    Echo that:

    vi /etc/sysconfig/network
    and added
    HOSTNAME=centos5.local

    vi /etc/hosts
    and added
    192.168.0.115 centos5.local

    works like a charm.

    Check if the hostname of your machine corresponds with the hosts file.

    like

    cat /etc/hostname
    zimbra2

    cat /etc/hosts
    192.168.1.110 zimbra2.mark5.de zimbra2

    if you have a mismatch there the installation will fail !

    Cheers,

    Oliver
