    Default LDAP startup error on Mac OS 10.4.9

    I am trying to get Zimbra installed on a Powermac G4 running Mac OS 10.4.9. The install seemed to go OK, but when running zmsetup.pl LDAP fails to start. Here is the error:

    Initializing ldap...daemon: bind(8) failed errno=49 (Can't assign requested address)
    slap_open_listener: failed on ldap://host.domain.com:389
    ERROR - failed to start slapd

    I have tried everyting I found in the forums but can't get past this.

    Thanks,

    Do you already have something running on port 389? You can check by doing a 'telnet localhost 389', if you get a connection you need to kill that service and disable it from starting at boot.

    No, nothing answers on that port.

    Before installing I wiped the drive and reinstalled the system from scratch, then applied all the updates. There are no open ports.

    Thanks

    klynde - i had an issue (not with 10.4.9, can't remember which revision) with the desktop version of Mac OS X, which had all ports shut off with the built-in firewall. i don't have access to my laptop to check and see if you have to enable each port individually or how that firewall interferes with the local services.
    cheers,

    Actually the firewall is turned off. I am setting this up as a test machine on the internal network, it's behind NAT.

    In that case, do you have an internal DNS server with A & MX records pointing to your Zimbra server?

    I don't have an internal DNS, I am using my ISPs. I have a subdomain set up for the server with an A record that is working.

    I used this setup for testing another email server and it works fine, I can send and receive from anywhere.

    You will need an internal DNS with A & MX records pointing to your Zimbra server, postfix won't work without that.
