    Default MTA Service Stopped

    I followed the instructions in this post:
    http://www.zimbra.com/forums/showth...ght=install+FC4

    to install the latest version of the Network Edition on my freshly installed FC4 box (using zcs-NETWORK-3.0.0_M2_744.RHEL4.tgz).

    The installation was successful and I followed steps in this post to get the MTA service running:

    http://www.zimbra.com/forums/showthr...ht=mta+stopped

    However, the admin console shows that 'mta' is running (everything but 'spell' is running) but 'zmcontrol status' does not:

    antispam Stopped
    antivirus Stopped
    ldap Running
    logger Running
    mailbox Stopped
    mta Stopped
    snmp Running
    spell Stopped

    What gives?

    Please look in your /tmp/install.log that may give us some clues.

    Other than the java error, I found nothing major in the logs. Nothing in /var/log/zimbra.log either...

    Well that Java error is pretty major. Means LDAP never started. Did you only try to install once?

    Yes, I only ran the installation once.

    And the LDAP service is running...

    Just search on the forums. Several people had this problem before.

    I think your /etc/hosts isn't correct. What do you have in there? It should look like:

    Code:
    127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
    192.168.1.157 mail.example.com mail
    The first line exactly like this. The second line with the IP adress, the FQDN and the hostname of the machine.

    I originally put the relevant line (after localhost) in my /etc/hosts file but took it out because I'm using DHCP to grab an address (I know, I know! This is just a test box for the next few weeks ). How does this explain the difference between zmcontrol's output and the admin console?

    Well, after logging in to my Zimbra server today and running 'zmcontrol status' again, all is well. The CLI output matches what the admin console claims. All's well that ends well...
