    Default Error after installing Zimbra on Fedora 3

    Hi All,

    I have a clean installation of Fedora 3.
    I've just installed the Zimbra product (Open Source).

    When doing:
    su - zimbra
    zmcontrol status

    I am getting the following error:
    ERROR: service.FAILURE (system failure: getDirectContext) (cause: javax.naming.CommunicationException localhost.localdomain:389)

    Any idea?

    Thanks, Ori

    Any idea?

    yum update

    My guess is your system is not updated.

    Default Yum Update fixed the problem

    I had the same problem with Fedora 3, and "yum update" fixed this for me.

    To get "yum update" to work I had to :

    1) Set the GPG key for the rpm program (see yum documentation on This is done with the following command:

    rpm --import /usr/share/rhn/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora

    2) Set the "http_proxy" environment variable for our proxy server (also in yum documentation). This is done with:

    export http_proxy

    (note that the shell looses this setting when you log out)
