    Default Ubuntu install

    What version of Ubuntu does Zimbra support? Will Zimbra work on the desktop version of Ubuntu, or only the server edition??

    Welcome to the forums.

    The versions for the OSS version of Zimbra are listed here, the Network Edition of Zimbra requires the Ubuntu 6.x LTS version.
    Regards

    I have Zimbra OS running on Ubuntu 6.10. There a few "gotchas" that took time to track down. I've seen a lot of posts that people are having problems on the newer version of Ubuntu. FYI, I originally tried Ubuntu 6.06LTS and ran into several issues - maybe the Network Edition requires it but the OS edition didn't like it at all Here's notes I took while getting the install going:

    1. Install Ubuntu 6.10

    2. Relink '/bin/sh' to point to '/bin/bash':
    Code:
    sudo rm /bin/sh
    sudo ln -s /bin/bash /bin/sh
    3. Install required packages:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install curl openssl libxml2 libexpat1 libgmp3c2 libpcre3 fetchmail libidn11 openssh-server
    4. Install DNS server:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install bind9
    5. Setup DNS files
    5a. Create named.conf.local file: (This file is referenced by the named.conf file)
    Code:
    sudo nano /etc/bind/named.conf.local
    Replace any existing contents in this file with the following code: (change domain.com to reflect your domain)
    Code:
    zone "email.domain.com" {
    	type master;
    	file "/etc/bind/zones/email.domain.com.db";
    	};
    Save and exit nano.
    5b. Modify options:
    Code:
    sudo nano /etc/bind/named.conf.options
    Change the forwarders section to point to your ISP's DNS servers. Example:
    Code:
    forwarders {
    	208.67.222.222;
    	208.67.220.220;
    	};
    Save and exit nano.
    5c. Create the zone file: (Change "domain.com" in the next line to reflect your domain)
    Code:
    sudo nano	/etc/bind/zones/email.domain.com.db
    Insert this code: (change domain.com to reflect your domain; change 10.0.0.1 to the IP address of the Zimbra server)
    Code:
    ; email.domain.com
    	$TTL 604800
    	@       IN      SOA     ns.email.domain.com. root.email.domain.com. (
                    2007022601
                    28800
                    3600
                    604800
                    38400
    	);
    	@       IN      NS      ns
    	        IN      MX      10 mail
    	        IN      A       10.0.0.1
    	ns      IN      A       10.0.0.1
    	mail    IN      A       10.0.0.1
    Save and exit nano.
    5d. Ensure the local DNS server is used for resolving DNS first:
    Code:
    sudo nano /etc/resolv.conf
    Replace existing code with this code: (change domain.com to reflect your domain; change 10.0.0.1 to the IP address of the Zimbra server; replace the 208.x.x.x IPs with your ISP's DNS server IPs)
    Code:
    search email.domain.com
    nameserver 10.0.0.1
    nameserver 208.67.222.222
    nameserver 208.67.220.220
    Save and exit nano.

    6. Restart DNS to pick up changes:
    Code:
    sudo /etc/init.d/bind9 restart
    7. Download and unpack the Zimbra Ubuntu open source binary

    8. Run the installer

    9. Config Zimbra:
    option 6 then 4 (set password)
    option r (return to prev menu)
    option a (apply)

    10. After Zimbra starts make sure the server properties (in the Admin UI) for Trusted MTA contain the local IP address.

    Did you also change the IP addresses to point to your own server?

    The hostname in your MX record is incorrect and you should also check your /etc/hosts file is correct. Have a look at the contents of the wiki here for the required format.
