    Default Zimbra install DNS error

    Hi,
    I'm trying to get Zimbra to install on Ubuntu 8.04, all the packages install fine however it runs into the problem of not being able to resolve my hostname. I am running BIND9 and I own the domain listed below - I have put in an MX record for pointing to the server.

    this is what the install.sh script says

    Please enter the logical hostname for this host [ms1.jonathanip.com.au]

    the server is referring to itself for DNS and this works fine, however I just cannot get Zimbra to find the MX and A records during install. I have already looked at the wiki and forums to no avail. What am I doing wrong?

    Default

    Welcome to the forums

    Please post the following information
    Code:
    cat /etc/hosts
    cat /etc/resolv.conf
    dig yourdomain mx
    dig yourdomain any
    host `hostname` <- note backticks and not single quotes

    Default Domain name vs. FQDN of server.

    It looks like you are using dig on the FQDN of your server instead of just your domain.
