    Default Debian install results

    debian netinstall with linux26 boot parameter.

    setup base system with static ip, bind running but not configured.

    apt-get remove exim4 (get rid of mta)

    /etc/hosts looks like

    127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
    192.16.36.40 mail.mydomain.com mail

    /etc/resolv.conf
    search localdomain
    nameserver 192.168.36.40


    (all ipv6 is commented out)



    apt-get remove exim
    rm -rf /etc/init.d/exim4
    rm -rf /etc/exim4
    rm -rf /etc/rc2.d/S20exim4

    apt-get install openssl
    apt-get install libstdc++6
    apt-get install libxml2-dev
    apt-get install sudo
    apt-get install curl
    apt-get install fetchmail
    apt-get install libgmp3

    tar zxvf zcs-3.0.0_GA_156.DEBIAN3.1.tgz

    cd zcs

    sh ./install.sh

    Yes to all installs, yes to system modification

    ____

    problem: after install mta stopped, saying it couldn't bind.
    on reboot when doing a zmcontrol status:

    cannot determine status exiting zimbra@mail

    ping of mail.mydomain.com returns success to 192.168.36.40
    zmhostname returns mail.mydomain.com

    Is sendmail or any other MTA binding to port 25?

    Anything in /var/log/zimbra.log?

    Hi Kevin

    Nothing else was bound, so I checked the log...

    mail postfix/qostqueue fatal Queue report unavailable - mail system is down
    and the a bunch of entries for mail zimbramon STATUS: : Cannot: determine

    Hmm, so I tried to start postfix manually and received the following error: bad numerical configuration: message_size_limit=

    I went into the zimbra postfix config and changed that to 10000 and its working. I should have spotted that without prompting. Oh well.

    What is the setting in the default configuration?

    Cheers

    I think 10000000 is the default, 10megs.

    Default Dns

    For those who need to do the whole internal vs external IP resolution (ie you have to NAT because you're behind a firewall) and would like an idea of what the bind settings should look like, I've included mine below:

    main.cf

    include "/etc/bind/named.conf.options";

    // Views
    view "int" {
    match-clients { localhost; };
    recursion yes;

    zone "mydomain1.com" {
    type master;
    file "db.mydomain1.com.int";
    allow-transfer { any; };
    };

    zone "mydomain2.com.au" {
    type master;
    file "db.mydomain2.com.au.int";
    allow-transfer { none; };
    };

    zone "." {
    type hint;
    file "/etc/bind/db.root";
    };

    zone "localhost" {
    type master;
    file "/etc/bind/db.local";
    };

    zone "127.in-addr.arpa" {
    type master;
    file "/etc/bind/db.127";
    };

    zone "0.in-addr.arpa" {
    type master;
    file "/etc/bind/db.0";
    };

    zone "255.in-addr.arpa" {
    type master;
    file "/etc/bind/db.255";
    };

    };

    view "externalnet" {
    match-clients { any; };
    recursion no;


    zone "mydomain1.com" {
    type master;
    file "db.mydomain1.com.ext";
    allow-transfer { none; };
    };


    zone "mydomain2.com.au" {
    type master;
    file "db.mydomain2.com.au.ext";
    allow-transfer { any; };
    };

    };
    include "/etc/bind/named.conf.local";

    --------------------

    Note the actual db files are exactly the same as the normal with int files show the private ips and the external showing the live ips.

    Also important to put a forwarder in .named.conf.options so the mail server will be able to resolve external addresses. And to list the server in resolv.conf
    Also need to secure bind if its going to respond to external requests.

    Is there a way to install Zimbra on debian etch (testing)?

    " NPTL...FOUND
    sudo...MISSING
    libidn...MISSING
    curl...MISSING
    fetchmail...MISSING
    gmp...MISSING"

    All libraries are installed on my debian etch server but the installer doesn't find them.

    It seems like the included install.sh is not compatible with the latest debian etch package manager. And libgmp3 ist no longer available in etch.

    "Package libgmp3 is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source
    However the following packages replace it:
    libgmp3c2 libgmpxx3 libgmp3-doc"

    I must admit that I'm unsure of anything beyond stable. As it is, I will have some fun when I move my server onto a serial ata drive. 3.1 netinstall doesn't support my controller.

    If you bring this to Kevins attention, they may be able to broaden the check for the next debian build.

    We ship for stable (3.1) on a 2.6 kernel - if you want a different platform, hit cvs.

    I didn't know the package is sarge-only and as far as I remember this is the first time I read about this. I think most debian users won't test software like Zimbra on their "hot" sarge servers so an etch version definately would make more sense.
