    Default Installing Zimbra 5.0.2 on Debian 4.0 (etch)

    Hi,

    this is my documentation installing ZCS 5.0.2 on Debian 4.0 (etch). Prerequisite is a minimal Debian 4.0 installation. Do
    Code:
    # tasksel install standard
    if you installed with debootstrap.

    Install additional packages needed for zimbra
    Code:
    # aptitude install fetchmail libxml2 openssl sudo libgmp3c2 libltdl3 libexpat1
    Deactivate default MTA exim4
    Code:
    myserver:~# /etc/init.d/exim4 stop
    myserver:~# cp -a /etc/init.d/exim4 /etc/init.d/exim4.original
    myserver:~# vi /etc/init.d/exim4
    myserver:~# diff /etc/init.d/exim4.original /etc/init.d/exim4
    1a2,4
    > 
    > exit 0
    >
    Download zcs-NETWORK-5.0.2_GA_1975.UBUNTU6.20080130232321.tgz and get a license ZCSLicense.xml and then install
    Code:
    myserver:/var/tmp# tar -xzf zcs-NETWORK-5.0.2_GA_1975.UBUNTU6.20080130232321.tgz
    myserver:/var/tmp# cd zcs-NETWORK-5.0.2_GA_1975.UBUNTU6.20080130232321
    myserver:/var/tmp/zcs-NETWORK-5.0.2_GA_1975.UBUNTU6.20080130232321# ./install.sh
    [..]
    Press Return to continue

    Welcome to the forums,
    Just a note: If you're using NE you really should be using one of the supported platforms
    (Side note: There is already a FOSS Debian 4 binary.)

    Yes, i want to use NE and i already thought of installing Ubuntu for this. But i read this AFTER i've installed my testserver and now my customers are already testing zimbra. Hm, how can i migrate my installation to Ubuntu? Is it sufficient to make a backup within zimbraAdmin and play this back in a fresh install?

    Are there known issues with Debian 4.0 and the NE?

    Default ... and now on Ubuntu Server 6.06 LTS

    Same procedure for Ubuntu Server 6.06 LTS as for Debian 4.0 but you have to install the following packages first:
    Code:
    # aptitude install libidn11 fetchmail libpcre3 libgmp3c2 libexpat1 libxml2 libstdc++5 openssl libltdl3 perl5 curl
    Before installing, be sure your first dns server (/etc/resolv.conf) is reachable, otherwise you will run into this: http://www.zimbra.com/forums/install...tallation.html

    Guess you've taken care of it already, but methods to switch platforms are listed below.
    NE or FOSS:
    -The standard method: /blog/archives/2007/10/moving_zcs_to_another_server.html
    -Fresh start and use imapsync & rest/curl to transfer data methodologies: User Migration - Zimbra :: Wiki
    NE only:
    -'Disaster' Recovery method

    & While you're here vote for: Bug 19630 - Migration Tool zimbra to zimbra

    I've read this but as I have problems with Apple Clients I decided to do a fesh install.

    -Fresh start and use imapsync & rest/curl to transfer data methodologies: User Migration - Zimbra :: Wiki
    NE only:
    -'Disaster' Recovery method

    Well, this is an evaluation installation, not a production system.
    & While you're here vote for: Bug 19630 - Migration Tool zimbra to zimbra
    Sounds good. But first I have to register to the bug tracker...

    Default debian is a required platform

    Greetings

    We don't build for it or test it and we don't provide support for it.
    Well, get a move on then chaps - debian folk are awaiting your endeavours with baited breath

    I have the next h/w platform right here on my desk - and the dilemma of going with a tried, tested and stable debian but unsupported by the big Zee or playing with ubuntu.

    please, please, pretty please ... can we have a debian/ZimbraNE roadmap?


    Cheers
    All that glitters .... oh look, a shiny thing
