Okay before I get smacked for "why would you do that"...
I am trying to get the most out of my hardware....
And here is my situation:
I have 4 machines running Touchscreen kiosks. The minimum requirements for the kiosks is windows 98, 128 meg ram, pIII 600mhz.
You cant GET machines that crappy new anywhere... so I got 4 Coreduo 2.0GHZ machines..... I want to use the extra processor time to run zimbra, as the touch screens are only used for "check in" between 9:30am -10:30am on sat, sun, wed and fri....but run 24-7.
So I'm turning to RHEL 4 with Vmware...
Native os on the machines is RHEL 4, with win98 running in VMware...
no problems so far...
I'm thinking i could breakup the responsibilities as illustrated in a Multiserver setup to these machines and use them to make 1 zimbra server.
Limitations are: 256 meg memory and 50GB hard drive space per machine:
Here is my thought:
machine 2 and 3:
1. We have Static outside IP, If I were doing this a single server,
I would port forward:
Remote Queue Manager:22
Tomcat IMAP SSL:993
Tomcat POP SSL:995
in my router to the internal IP of the zimbra server... but since its now 3 peices on 4 machines, what ports do I forward to which machines?
2. For possible IMAP/Pop3 users that are checking their mail via outlook, or palm versamail... can I just point mail server settings to the public ip/web address (with 2 mailstores) or do I have to have multiple external static ips(dns A records).
3.Any suggestions/warnings/requirements that pertain to my situation other than what is here?:
