I finally managed to get zimbra (zcs-3.1.4_GA_518.FC4.tgz) installed in my vserver. However, zmcontrol status tells me "mailbox not running" because tomcat did not start.
When I try to start tomcat by hand, I get the error message
[main]  system - Config initialization failed
com.zimbra.cs.service.ServiceException: system failure: getting database connection
Caused by: java.sql.SQLException: Server connection failure during transaction. Due to underlying exception: 'java.sql.SQLException: Access denied for user 'zimbra'@'v-zimbra.milnet.lan' (using password: YES)
Mysql is running and listening on two ports, the installation log showed all success except for these three errors:
(..during ldap initialization)
ERROR: account.NO_SUCH_SERVER (no such server: v-zimbra.milnet.lan)
** Importing server cert
ERROR: account.DOMAIN_EXISTS (domain already exists: milnet.lan)
Error: key trial_expiration_date is not set
The log confirms that mysql passwords for root and zimbra have been set. However, I don't know what these passwords are, so I can't check the connection 'by hand'. Can anybody tell me how I can find these passwords?
The only thing I changed during installation is the mail domain: the server is called 'v-zimbra.milnet.lan' but the maildomain is simply 'milnet.lan' . DNS should be ok (I have a proper MX record).
Any help to troubleshoot this would much be appreciated.
