    Default Problems Install Zimbra

    Hi there,

    I'm new here and for zimbra too.

    I tried to install Zimbra 8.0.2 on ubuntu server x64 12.04 LTS

    I used this reference manual
    The Diary of a Networker: How to Install Zimbra 8.0.2 on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

    And the automatic install i get the following

    No results returned for A lookup of mail.mydomain.com
    Checked nameservers:
    10.0.10.11
    No results returned for AAAA lookup of mail.mydomain.com
    Checked nameservers:
    10.0.10.11


    DNS ERROR resolving mail.mydomain.com
    It is suggested that the hostname be resolvable via DNS
    Change hostname [Yes] yes
    Please enter the logical hostname for this host [mail.mydomain.com] mydomain.com
    No results returned for A lookup of mydomain.com
    Checked nameservers:
    10.0.10.11


    DNS ERROR resolving mydomain.com
    It is suggested that the hostname be resolvable via DNS
    Re-Enter hostname [Yes] yes
    Please enter the logical hostname for this host [mail.mydomain.com] mydomain.com


    Anyone that can help ?


    Thanks in advanced.

    What you should not do is read random documents on the internet that tell you how to install old versions of Zimbra, you should read the Product Documentation and the installation requirements and install the most recent version of ZCS. Under no circumstances should you install ZCS 8.0.2, you could end up losing your server. The problems you describe have also been covered many times in the forums and wiki articles on the subject, you need to install a Split DNS (read the wiki article on the subject) so ZCS can resolve it's IP address.

    Hi there,

    If I could make the documentation, I must use this manual .

    Bill, as a new user I hope you take this comment for what it may be worth.

    Many of us who are new and trying to broaden our skills in Linux and Zimbra may not be as skilled as the experts who are on this thread. We may lack knowledge in the proper syntax of DNS records, as an example. I have seen repeatedly on this forum, from many posters, "Read the Wiki". I'm sure others like myself, could learn valuable skills and lessons from those on this forum. Many like myself, have had problems thrown in our laps with less than patient customers expecting very quick response. We are asking for help in many cases, additional detail such as when was the Wiki Published, by whom would be a tremendous to narrow down the Thousands of hits on Wiki. We ask only for patience and understanding, realizing you too were once where we are today.

    Thank you

    Pat
