    Default Multiple Servers in 5.0.1

    I am trying to get multiple servers working with Zimbra 5.0.1.

    When i try to setup the second server i am unable to finish the setup. What does Address unconfigured (**) items or correct ldap configuration (? - help) mean?

    +Hostname: *localhostname*
    +Ldap master host: *hostnameofmaster*
    +Ldap port: 389
    +Ldap Admin password: set
    +LDAP Base DN: cn=zimbra
    +TimeZone: (GMT+01.00) Amsterdam / Berlin / Bern / Rome / Stockholm / Vienna

    2) zimbra-store: Enabled
    3) zimbra-mta: Enabled
    4) zimbra-snmp: Enabled
    5) zimbra-spell: Disabled
    6) zimbra-proxy: Enabled
    7) Default Class of Service Configuration:
    8) Enable default backup schedule: yes
    r) Start servers after configuration no
    s) Save config to file
    x) Expand menu
    q) Quit

    It means fix the problems that are highlighted by the '**'. Did you read the documentation for a Multi-Server install?

    Sure, i did.

    The problem is - there is nothing marked with ** as you can see in my posting.

    Unhappy Same Problem...

    I am facing the same problem - all configuration settings are in place and there are no *** left.
    I am using the open source edition... could this be the issue?

    1) Common Configuration:
    +Hostname: zimbra2.xxxxxxx
    +Ldap master host: zimbra.xxxx
    +Ldap port: 389
    +Ldap Admin password: set
    +LDAP Base DN: uid=zimbra,cn=admins,cn=zimbra
    +TimeZone: (GMT+02.00) Helsinki / Kyiv / Riga / Sofia / Tallinn / Vilnius

    2) zimbra-store: Enabled
    3) zimbra-spell: Enabled
    4) Default Class of Service Configuration:
    r) Start servers after configuration yes
    s) Save config to file
    x) Expand menu
    q) Quit

    It means that this server cannot talk to the LDAP master. When you install a client, a random password is generate for the "LDAP admin password". You need to go and change it to match what you set on the LDAP master.

    As it says, you need to correct the LDAP configuration -- This generally indicates that it cannot talk to the master with the password you've set as the admin password value.

    On your main LDAP server use

    zmlocalconfig -s | grep pass

    It will show you all of the configured passwords.

    I have the correct password and nevertheless tried it again today.

    It's still not working.

    I'm now waiting for the answer to my support ticket.

    Having just performed a production 5.0.1 install this weekend, I will agree that the documentation doesn't seem to match the process that worked.

    I not only had to reset the LDAP admin password, I needed to check and reset all the LDAP access passwords that didn't match that of my primary server.

    Postfix, Amavis, SpamAssassin, etc.

    At a minimum, you need to look at them, to ensure they get set right, but in a lot of cases, they didn't for me.

    (When installing an MTA/Ldap Replica server, I had to do the install three times to get the settings right.)
