    Default Failed SSL installation on Mac OS X Server

    I want to install zimbra on a Mac OS X Server 10.5 but I get following errors:

    1) DNS ERROR resolving MX for ... . But I have a MX record in the DNS Server and the DNS-server i s running. If I go on and ignore the installation prozess continues.

    2) After the configuration of the password zimbra tries to install the mailboxd ssl certificate. But it failed an the installation process will be aborted.

    I have OpenDirectory (LDAP) running but Mailserver, MySQL, iCAL-server, etc. are stopped.
    Thanks for help

    What's the fully qualified domain name of your zimbra server?

    What does mx point to in DNS?

    Does the server you're installing on point to the DNS Server with the MX record (in System Preferences:Network)?

    The problem is my ignorance of DNS. Ok, I will try to anwser your questions:

    1) The name of my server ist server.iv-media.intra. It has the IP-Adress 192.168.0.2 and is also the DNS Server.

    2) In the Network Preferences the DNS links first to 192.168.0.2 and some other DNS-Server from my ISP.

    3) The DNS-Server is running and has following settings:
    iv-media.intra. IN NS ns.iv-meda.intra.
    ns IN A 10.0.0.1
    server IN A 192.168.0.2
    iv-media.intra. IN MX 10 server.iv-media.intra.

    Additionally you can find screenshots from the GUI-settings in the attachment.

    Istvan, the thing that's confusing me is that you have ns.iv-media.intra/10.0.0.1 set as the nameserver for the iv-media.intra zone (based on the first line of your settings), but you haven't said anything about that. Is that the same host as server.iv-media.intra, just a different IP address? If so, is DNS bound to both addresses?

    (Actually you have ns.iv-meda.intra written above, hopefully that's a typo.)

    Which host has that zone file installed on it? 192.168.0.2, or 10.0.0.1?

    If you've got DNS running on 192.168.0.2 with that zone file, try changing the ns record in the file to server.iv-media.intra.

    If not, please post answers to the above questions.

    EDIT: One thing to try...go into terminal and do nslookup. Then immediately give the command

    server server.iv-media.intra

    If things are working properly you should get the response

    Default server: server.iv-media.intra
    Address: 192.168.0.2#53


    Now type

    server.iv-media.intra

    Again if things are working properly you should get the response

    Server: server.iv-media.intra
    Address: 192.168.0.2#53

    Name: server.iv-media.intra
    Address: 192.168.0.2


    Do "exit" to get out the interactive mode with nslookup.

    Another thing, it can't hurt to create an mx record for server.iv-media.intra, i.e.

    server.iv-media.intra. IN MX 10 server.iv-media.intra.

    And another thing, your DNS.png screenshot does not match what you have typed above, i.e., there's no mx record at all.
