Modifying Operating System Configurations
Important: The operating system that you use should be at the current patch level before you install ZCS. See the latest release notes for a list of the operating systems patches that have been tested with ZCS.
The VMware Zimbra Collaboration Server runs on one of several operating systems, including Ubuntu® LTS, Red Hat® Enterprise Linux, and SUSE® Linux Enterprise.
Installation modifications for frequently used operating systems are described in individual configuration documents found on the ZCS documentation website, such as Installation Modifications for ZCS with Ubuntu LTS, or Installation Modifications for ZCS with Red Hat. Other operating systems may require similar modifications, and you can use the information contained in these documents as a reference to gauge whether your operating system might need to be modified.
A full default installation of the Linux distribution that you select is required.
For more information, refer to the System Requirements for VMware Zimbra Collaboration Server 8.0 document for information on hardware and software configurations supported by VMware Zimbra Collaboration Server.
