I'm doing a PE install on RHEL5 (well, really CentOS 5.2, but I won't tell if you won't).
I'm going to document the problems I run into as I go -- take note that I've been running Linux since .99pl12f in 1993 (SLS, for those who really wanted to know), and administering Unix and Linux systems (and email) for even longer than that, back to Tandy Xenix 1.3 or so. So I'm not an idiot... I think. :-)
DNS ERROR resolving MX for benjamin.vicimarketing.com
It is suggested that the domain name have an MX record configured in DNS
Change domain name? [Yes] n
Look! An error message written by someone intimately familiar with teh code!! :-)
How did you try to resolve it? What were you resolving? What, precisely, does that second sentence *mean*? And change which domain name to what?
This all plays to "Zimbra doesn't really expect to be behind a DNAT box", and personally, I don't put anything anywhere else these days, except at gunpoint.
As you can see, I answered "no", which left me with this:
+Admin user to create: firstname.lastname@example.org
******* +Admin Password UNSET
+Enable automated spam training: yes
+Spam training user: email@example.com
+Non-spam(Ham) training user: firstname.lastname@example.org
+Global Documents Account: email@example.com
+SMTP host: benjamin.vicimarketing.com
Clearly, only the last of those is correct. The name of the machine != the name of the domain, which != the MX target for the domain.
It would be nice if I didn't have to explain that, but I'll settle for expanding the documentation (and install scripting) so that it's possible to understand what's being asked, and what it's results will be.
Here, let me go restart my install under screen(1), so I can reconnect to it later.... :-}
(The forum timed out, so this might or might not be a duplicate post...)
Oh, and since I interrupted the install, it now thinks the packages are installed... even though I've removed the unpack directory *and* the target directory, and won't run without a key.
Um, where is it looking?
