    That's great, I'm glad it's working for you.

    For the record (and anyone else who ends up trying CentOS), I did a basic server install, added a few extra packages (I forget which, they were unrelated to Zimbra), and it's working great for me... both the OSS and Network Edition.

    So, there's something that's different in your new install that's allowing it to work.... but I don't think it's a requirement that one do a desktop install in order for Zimbra to function (regardless of what the instructions say :-)

    It'd be interesting to learn what the difference between your original install and this new one are, that's allowing it to work. Either way, I'm glad that it is working though :-)

    Have a good one,

    Well, the only difference is the number of packages intalled (150 vs. 600). Everything else was absolutely the same.

    For the record too:

    I also have sucessfully running Zimbra Network Edition on CentOS 4.2 (Server, the "one-cd-edition"). I only did a "Minimal-install". Then I ran "yum update", "yum install fetchmail", and "yum install xyz" for all think that ZCS wanted when running install.sh. I edited my /etc/hosts like this , finally I had to do this steps, but now it is running fine.

    If some guys need it I can make a proper "step-by-step-howto", then I will do a new ZCS install on CentOS in a virtual machine.

    So, if ldap starts (su - zimbra, ldap start) can you telnet to port 389?

    ANything in /tmp/install.log or /tmp/zmsetup.log?
    I followed almost every post about this error.
    It seems that LDAP starts, but I can't reach the 329 port
    /etc/hosts seems to be ok
    what can I do ? I'm using Fedora 4 and it is all updated.

    Default ldap port - 389, not 329

    Can you reach port 389?

    Default cert problem

    Search the forums for ldap and certificate problems, that's what's happening here.
