    Added an entry for this host into /etc/hosts and reinstallation worked.

    What does your hosts file look like? Is it correct following this format:
    Code:
    127.0.0.1              localhost.localdomain    localhost
    xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx    mail.domain.com       mail
    Please note that the mail.domain.com ip address must be available for assignment.

    Welcome to the forums.

    There's a copy of the hosts file in the one above yours (posted by jholder), you could always read the Quick Start Guide for details - it's on the main Zimbra site under Documentation.
