    Default [SOLVED] server starts, no access

    ok, I'm stumped...

    I'm in the process of setting up a test zimbra 5.0.16 server...
    I've mirrored the active server to this test server...
    All the permissions are correct...

    zmcontrol starts the server....

    ...but when I access the server web ui, nothing comes up...?

    can someone tell me what I'm missing...? ...or doing wrong?

    Thanks.

    How have you done that?

    Do all the services start?

    It could be a DNS problem or hosts file problem, how about some information from the log files?

    Hmmm...I actually think it has to do with my posix/ldap setup....
    ...curious how that would affect the setup and post access, considering that there is already a zimbra/posix/ldap setup already running...?

    Shouldn't I at least get an error message or warning that there is a server already with the same domain name running zimbra/posix/ldap...?

    Hmmm....

    btw I'm using this method:

    Moving ZCS to New Server - Zimbra :: Wiki
    Method For Open Source Edition Users: Second method which you can follow is using rsync command, here are the steps:

    If and only if the Operating System is going to be same on both old and new server:

    * Stop your existing ZCS using "zmcontrol stop".
    * Check if no zimbra process is running if so kill that process.
    * Do a cold and offline backup of /opt/zimbra directory using rsync command:

    # rsync -avHK /opt/zimbra /opt/zimbra.bak

    * Copy the zimbra.bak file to the new server. (Please see Talk:Moving_ZCS_to_New_Server)
    * On new server, install the same version of ZCS and Keep the "hostname" and "zmhostname" same as old server.
    * Stop ZCS on new server using "zmcontrol stop".
    * Remove the complete zimbra directory:

    # rm -rf /opt/zimbra

    * Restore from cold backup using rsync command:

    # rsync -avHK /opt/zimbra.bak /opt/zimbra

    Does the test server have a split dns setup tricking it to think the domain of the current server points to it's IP address?

    yea, the split dns is working okie...

    I'm in the process of giving it another try...starting with a new/clean mirror...

    BINGO!

    setting up with an updated/recent mirror did the trick... perhaps something didn't copy right the first time...

    Alls good now.

    thanks!
