    Default Zimbra Appliance Installation

    I'm new to Zimbra.

    I've been having some installation problems and I just noticed that the server being utilized in a workgroup and not on the domain. Can the Zimbra appliance be installed on a server that is in a workgroup and not part of a domain?

    The Zimbra appliance itself is a stand-alone Linux server and does not belong to any domain or workgroup, it doesn't need to. I don't really understand the point of your question.

    Default New Zimbra Installation

    The question was because the machine I was given to work with has a "Home" version of windows 7 and it cannot be joined to a domain.

    The home version is most likely because this is a lab setup.

    I'm going to continue with installation.

    "PHOENIX" Duing the installation the host name and admin email address are requested. Is this host name the FQDN of the host and should the admin email address be a known good/working email address?

    That has nothing to do with the Zimbra Appliance, it's installed in a VM and the host doesn't have any effect on the VM.

    There's no need to shout, I can read perfectly well.

    The hostname is that of the Appliance and the email address is also one for the appliance - details are in the Documentation.

    Default Zimbra Appliance Installation

    I didn't mean to yell Phoenix....I'm new to forums also.

    I have successfully installed ZIMBRA. "SERVER.MYCOMPANY.COM" on my internal network. Is it possible to have ZIMBRA run along side my current e-mail configuration using different e-mail addresses.

    i.e.
    my current config: An ISP holds my active MX record "MYCOMPANY.COM"

    I currently receive e-mail at address: Rnancy@idas.com

    How can I test my ZIMBRA appliance?

    If you wish to test it in the same domain then have a read of the Split Domain wiki article.
