    Default Rename Zimbra master domain

    The domain name I setup zimbra with, is it possible to rename it ? I'd like to avoid reinstallation if possible.

    Thanks

    You'll have to elaborate on which scenario you fit:

    a) Leave the existing domain alone for a sec & create a new domain (use the admin console gui or it's like zmprov cd mktng.domain.com zimbraAuthMech zimbra)
    Then: zmprov mcf zimbraDefaultDomainName desired.default.domain.com

    (As for the unused domain, you can either leave it or delete it after you're sure you have all the admin/notification email attributes moved/changed.)

    b) If your on v5B3 or greater there's the command zmprov -l renameDomain {domain|id} {newDomain}

    c) If you need to change your server's hostname be sure to make a backup and follow ZmSetServerName - Zimbra :: Wiki

    I'm running 4.5.7 on a 1-1 NAT config with Split DNS.

    I need to change the hostname of the server from mail.server.com to mail.newserver.com

    Reason for this is we don't want the current master domain to be in the mail headers for all the additional domains.

    I will follow your instructions set forth in section (C).

    Also, I'll update my split DNS info to reflect the new domain change.

    4.5.7 cool, it was re-updated then, see step 4

    note there's also smtp_helo_name & smtpd_banner
