    Default Installation fails on vServer / Debian 3.1

    Hi Folks,
    I'm trying to set up Zimbra in a virtual Environment with at least 256Mb RAM.
    As I read in several other Threads, this seems to be very problematic.

    The installation fails, when the install.sh tries to setup the Zimbra-core-deb.

    Quote from the install-log:
    COMMAND: zmlocalconfig -s | sed -e "s/ = \(.*\)/=\'\1\'/" > /opt/zimbra/.savecon
    fig/config.save
    -su: line 1: zmlocalconfig: command not found
    COMMAND: zmcontrol shutdown
    -su: line 1: zmcontrol: command not found
    Selecting previously deselected package zimbra-core.
    (Reading database ... 20877 files and directories currently installed.)
    Unpacking zimbra-core (from .../zimbra-core_4.5.3_GA_733.DEBIAN3.1_i386.deb) ...
    Setting up zimbra-core (4.5.3_GA_733.DEBIAN3.1) ...
    chown: cannot access `/opt/zimbra/a*': No such file or directory
    chown: cannot access `/opt/zimbra/s[a-su-z]*': No such file or directory
    chown: cannot access `/opt/zimbra/perdition-1.17': No such file or directory
    chown: cannot access `/opt/zimbra/apache-tomcat-*': No such file or directory
    Error occurred during initialization of VM
    Could not reserve enough space for object heap
    Could not create the Java virtual machine.
    dpkg: error processing zimbra-core (--install):
    subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1
    Errors were encountered while processing:
    zimbra-core
    As I found out in this Thread, it seems to be a common error on virtual Servers:
    Could not reserve enough space for object heap
    Could not create the Java virtual machine.
    The problem is, that I cannot modify the zmshutil file as described, because at the moment of installation it is packed in the core-deb.
    Any suggestions?

    I don't know how to handle this error either:
    chown: cannot access `/opt/zimbra/a*': No such file or directory
    chown: cannot access `/opt/zimbra/s[a-su-z]*': No such file or directory
    chown: cannot access `/opt/zimbra/perdition-1.17': No such file or directory
    chown: cannot access `/opt/zimbra/apache-tomcat-*': No such file or directory

    Thanks for your help,

    Tobias

    Welcome to the forums.

    Your memory allocation is way below the required minimum, you should increase it or you will continue to have problems.

    That's what I worried about, but I hoped that I would be able to install Zimbra at least. Especially, because I don't need max performance, Zimbra should only be used for two or three people.

    Is there a possibility to reduce the amount of needed memory _before_ installation?

    Tobias,

    do a 2 part install:

    1. install only the software with the switch -s
    2. do the necessary modifications
    3. run /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmsetup.sh

    In fact this is what happens in install.sh without th -s switch.

    Have in mind that you nead at least 512 K available memory in the vserver. I used this with good performance on a rootds of vserver.de.
