    Default Ubuntu 12.04 vz with 8.0.4.GA.5737 FOSS installation

    I thought I'd post my setup so others will not have to work so hard to get an end result.

    Upgrade the host OS before install and add the locale stuff (get heaps of problems if you don't):
    apt-get update
    apt-get install language-pack-en-base
    locale-gen en_AU #change to your locale
    apt-get dist-upgrade

    Too check you locale settings:
    locale -a -v

    apt-get install libgmp3c2 sysstat sqlite3 # is needed by Zimbra
    apt-get install unzip p7zip-full lzop lzma arj zoo cabextract tnef nomarch bzip2 rpm #for unpacking files in emails

    apt-get install netcat-openbsd pax #need these as well

    Remove all references to Apache and Sendmail via purge or autoremove

    apt-get purge sendmail-bin apache2
    apt-get autoremove sendmail-cf
    apt-get autoremove apache2-utils
    reboot #need to do this to flush system memory

    Down load Zimbra FOSS and follow install instructions from Zimbra website

    You should have a working system.


    If the cpu usage just keeps on going up and the file /opt/zimbra/zmstat/zmstat.out just keeps on growing with Use of uninitialized value $line in pattern match (m//) at /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmstat-io line 69. then the newest PROXMOX (openvz) containers have problems with iostat.

    To fix you need and older version of sysstat from the Debian site. I just downloaded from Debian -- Details of package sysstat in squeeze then extracted the file iostat by

    ar -x sysstat_9.0.6.1-2_amd64.deb
    tar -xvf data.tar.gz
    cd ./usr/bin/
    then moved the file to - cp iostat /opt/zimbra/
    Modified /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmstat-io as root

    # my $IOSTAT = '/usr/bin/iostat';
    my $IOSTAT = '/opt/zimbra/iostat';
    if (! -e $IOSTAT) {
    # $IOSTAT = '/usr/sbin/iostat';
    $IOSTAT = '/opt/zimbra/iostat';

    restarted zmstatctl stop then zmstatctl start as su - zimbra

    Thanks for the info! Do you have any recommendations on partition sizes? (Assuming you're using LVM; also assuming that's the way to go.

    As the site is small the partion is small -
    2 x cpu's
    4.Gb ram
    300Gb HDD
    system runs well and has plenty of room for heavy load periods.
