    Default problem with the installation of zimbraLdap replica

    hi all.

    i'm trying to make a installation of a zimbraLdap replica i have my server working just fine (mail2.pranical.local) but i want to make a replica in a machine named debian.pranical.local. (Running debian) i'm trying to install zimbra 5.0 (is the same zimbra that i have in mail2.pranical.local already running)

    I run install.sh and select to put only zimbra-core and zimbra-ldap in the installiation he start the installation but when i try to make changes in the configuration menu i get in a loop (i don't know if it is a stupid problem or a bug in the installation script) this is what i'm talking about:


    Main menu

    1) Common Configuration:
    +Hostname: debian.pranical.local
    +Ldap master host: mail2.pranical.local
    +Ldap port: 389
    +Ldap Admin password: set
    +TimeZone: (GMT-08.00) Pacific Time (US & Canada)

    2) zimbra-ldap: Enabled
    +Create Domain: no
    +Ldap Root password: set
    +Ldap Replication password: set
    +Ldap Postfix password: set
    +Ldap Amavis password: set

    c) Collapse menu
    r) Start servers after configuration no
    s) Save config to file
    q) Quit

    Address unconfigured (**) items or correct ldap configuration (? - help)

    I change the master host, ldap admin password, and the create domain option, i don't know what else i have to change



    when i try to push "a" to aply the changes it said:

    Address unconfigured (**) items or correct ldap configuration (? - help) a
    Invalid selection! - press any key to continue

    so, i don't know how to finish the installation, i know it is a dumb problem (i'm pretty sure that i'm making something wrong) but i don't know what,

    any ideas? thanks for the help

    All four of the password values need to match the settings on mail2.pranical.local.
    +Ldap Root password: set
    +Ldap Replication password: set
    +Ldap Postfix password: set
    +Ldap Amavis password: set


    You can check the values on mail2 with
    zmlocalconfig -s | grep -i pass

    Hello

    I am having the same EXACT issue.

    I've installed an LDAP master machine - ZCS 5.0.11 on Ubuntu 8.04.1.
    I have specified the same password for all LDAP components (5 places, the same as specified in the posts above).

    I have then tried to install an LDAP replica machine - ZCS 5.0.11 on MacOS X 10.4.11 Server.

    I made sure that the passwords for LDAP are the same as the LDAP master machine, but I cannot apply the configuration - I keep getting:

    Address unconfigured (**) items or correct ldap configuration (? - help)

    I verified that the passwords are correct using -
    zmlocalconfig -s | grep -i pass

    They are indeed the same, but I still can't apply the configuration.

    Can anyone help please?

    Default Found the solution

    The following command needs to be typed on the Master LDAP server for the Replica server configuration to complete:
    # (as the zimbra user) /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmldapenablereplica

    That's the magic word!

    WARNING: This restarts the LDAP server. Okay unless you weren't expecting it.

    Just to note, it is documented in the multi-server installation guide that zmldapenablereplica must be run on the master before installation of a replica is done.

    The restart of the LDAP master will not be necessary with the 6.0 release.

    True, I just realized this.
    But it is located under "Installing Zimbra Master LDAP Server", which makes sense to someone who is familiar with the process. But anyone who is completely new to Zimbra (like me) would automatically skip to "Installing a replica LDAP server", because that's what they're trying to do.

    This crucial command is easily missed in the manual and I think it should be moved to the "Installing a replica LDAP server" section and printed in bold text.
