    Default Initializing ldap...FAILED (256)

    I'm trying the Debian install. The error I get isn't very descriptive, so I have no idea where to look. Are there more verbose logs available? If so, where? If not, what to do to solve this error?

    (System is a clean debian sarge installation, nothing else (except ssh and stuff) runs on the machine.)

    Any help is appreciated!

    I actually read http://www.zimbra.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1349, but even with libbind-dev and bind packages installed, I'm still getting this error. Any ideas?

    You could post the error, so we had something to go on aside from "it doesn't work"


    Check /tmp/install.log.* or /tmp/zmsetup.log.*. If it's an ldap issue, apt-get install openssl may help.

    I did? Look at the subject of this thread...

    Okay, I'll try that. I'll report back if it worked or I got some more info out of the logs.

    That (= apt-get install openssl) helped Thanks!

    Default openssl

    FWIW, this is fixed in a future build.

    You would be better starting a new thread instead of adding to an old one.

    Anyway, is your DNS setup correctly for the Zimbra server? Is your hosts file correct as per the Quick Install guide?
    Regards

    hello IVD01

    try this:
    install latest openssl (v0.9.7xxx i believe)

    login as root, or became root
    #cd /usr/lib
    #ln -s libcrypto.so.0.9.7 libcrypto.so.5
    #ln -s libssl.so.0.9.7 libssl.so.5

    hopefully, he will find that lib he is looking for...
    next try reading this post

    cheers

    Hi Bill,

    Yes the DNS is correct on my Centos install, I have also tried installing a newer version of openssl, and i still had no luck. Is there anything else that I can try. BTW, I appreciate your help on this.
