Would it even be possible for someone to ship a computer system to someone with zimbra installed without the zimbra installer knowing the machines name, ip address and MX domain?
My thought is that the zimbra installation process probably hardcodes configuration data (in ldap directory, mysql db, config files, etc) so that the zimbra installation is very "sticky" and hard to re-purpose once the hostname or ip address is modified, even if by dhcp.
These are the questions that I am pondering since I am trying to share my zimbra installation as an "AMI" (Amazon Machine Image) for the Elastic Cloud. I have zimbra successfully installed and running on the amazon elastic cloud. By successful, I mean it can send/receive mail to/from yahoo.com.
I am about to bundle up my customized AMI and attempt to test my AMI with some other domains to see if I can get it up and running quickly and easily.
Any thoughts on the "stickiness" of configuration data for zimbra?
Thanks for you time!
