    Default zimbra installation failure cannot install ldap package

    Hi !

    Since the company i work in is no longer satisfied with a postfix based squirrelmail mailserver I decided to install zimbra collaboration suite, so what i did is the following. I made a fresh install of Debian 4.0 etch, copied all of the accounts from my soon to be retired squirrelmail mailserver, and fallowed the instructions on hoe to install zimbra colllaboration suite on Debian from Zimbra Collaboration Suite (ZCS) Open Source Edition v5.0 On Debian Etch | HowtoForge - Linux Howtos and Tutorials, and as you can guess failed to do so..

    The problem is the following, installation fails to install the zimbra.ldap package, zimbra-logger package. zimbra-snmp package..and so on practicly the only thing that it does install is the zimbra-core package...


    I cannot find the solution to this problem anywhere...I have checked my DNS MX settings, gone thru all of the /etc/hosts /etc/hostname setting checked everything I could think off and it still won't install anything but the zimbra-core package...

    Please help I'm on a deadline

    Welcome to the forums

    You should have a zmsetup.log in /tmp. Please post this so we can see what has happened.

    Look in the install.log first, that contains the output of the actual package installs.
