markvr> I've just pm'd the info to you. I agree that perhaps it should be noted in the thread but since it apparently was removed from the documentation and a Zimbra employee chose to pm it to me instead of post it in the thread I will follow their wishes and not post it in the thread myself.
Any Zimbra employee> It may be helpful to put the password information back in the documentation or post it into a publicly accessible thread or perhaps even the wiki.
rPath manual network setup: Since the rPath config files are a bit different than the distros I am used to I thought I would add to this thread the needed information to manually set the network settings for eth0 (and whatever other NICs are configured after install from the virtual appliance rPath ISO).
Also naturally be sure to reset your root password from the defaults after logging in:
vi /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 (replace eth0 with the device your configuring)
# Replace eth0 with the device you are configuring
# Set the static IP you've chosen
# Set your netmask
# Set your gateway
# Leave whatever MAC address was preconfigured
# Make sure it comes up on boot
# Its an ethernet IF
# Make sure to either comment out or delete the dhcp line
[root@localhost ~]# passwd
# Enter a new password twice
# and your all set.
