    Default two oss zimbra servers on single domain

    Hi

    I just had an idea and hope it might work...

    I have an OSS server running that does block some attachments, but some user need to get any type of attachments.

    What i thought was, if i could have two different servers, hosting the same domain, with attachment filtering in one and no filtering at all on the other, is there any way to accomplish this?

    Here's basically what I did in a testing environment utilizing two virtual servers.

    You could do a split domain with the servers. On the primary, allow all attachments. Setup the secondary server does attachment blocking. Create the domain company.com on both servers. Lets say you want user1@company.com to get attachments and user9@company.com to have attachment blocking.

    On the primary server;
    Code:
    zmprov cd company.com
    zmprov ca user1@company.com P4ssW0rdhere
    zmprov ca user9@company.com P4ssW0rdhere2
    zmprov ma user9@company.com zimbraMailTransport smtp:secondary.company.com:25
    We just SSH'd into the Primary and created both users, except user9's mailbox relaying to Secondary.

    Now create the user on Secondary;
    Code:
    zmprov cd company.com
    zmprov ca user9@company.com P4ssW0rdhere2
    We also need a catch-all so user9 can email back user1;
    Code:
    md company.com zimbraMailCatchAllAddress @company.com
    md company.com zimbraMailCatchAllForwardingAddress @company.com
    md company.com zimbraMailTransport smtp:primary.company.com
    On the secondary server Global settings > Attachments, block .zip attachments for example.

    Now incoming mail to user9@company.com will hit the primary which allows attachments and relay it to secondary which blocks it. There's DNS work to be done here to make this functional as well.

    So, here is what i have in mind about this. (yes, still working on it)

    I got a single server up and running, to do this split, the easiest way i can think of is to install another server on a cheaper box, migrate all the users to it, then setup the domain again, this time split on the original server +1 other server, migrate the users to this new setup.

    makes sense?

    @ Mek1

    Can you comment more on the dns part? is it anything different from what the wiki says about splitdomains?

    TIA
