    Default problems getting zimbra on fc4

    I think I'm close but no cigar on fc4. I think the problem is with the ldap server.

    I followed the instructions here:
    http://www.zimbra.com/forums/faq.php..._faq_install_1

    I had done an install -u and then made sure no zimbra processes were running. then I did an install, named my host localhost.localdomain it got all the way to the end and then:

    Setting up SSL...done
    Starting servers...Calling GetServiceInfoRequest (localhost.localdomain)

    RESPONSE: (Zimbra::Mon::serviceInfo)
    host
    ip 127.0.0.1
    name localhost.localdomain
    done
    ERROR: service.FAILURE (system failure: getDirectContext) (cause: javax.naming.CommunicationException localhost.localdomain:389)

    Installation complete!

    looking at the install log I have:
    Preparing packages for installation...
    zimbra-core-3.0.M1_21.FC3-20050920155949_
    ERROR: service.FAILURE (system failure: getDirectContext) (cause: javax.naming.C
    ommunicationException localhost:389)
    iptables v1.3.0: can't initialize iptables table `nat': iptables who? (do you ne
    ed to insmod?)
    [... lots of errors about iptables... does this matter?]
    then lots of successful stuff, then:
    * Changing mysql zimbra user password
    * Changed zimbra mysql user password
    COMMAND: zmlocalconfig -e zimbra_server_hostname=localhost.localdomain
    COMMAND: zmlocalconfig -e ldap_host=localhost.localdomain
    COMMAND: zmlocalconfig -e ldap_port=389
    COMMAND: /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmldapinit
    Started slapd: pid 31144
    ldap_bind: Can't contact LDAP server (-1)

    COMMAND: zmprov cs localhost.localdomain
    ERROR: service.FAILURE (system failure: getDirectContext) (cause: javax.naming.C
    ommunicationException localhost.localdomain:389)
    COMMAND: zmprov cd localhost.localdomain
    ERROR: service.FAILURE (system failure: getDirectContext) (cause: javax.naming.C
    ommunicationException localhost.localdomain:389)
    [and more of those sorts of errors]
    then more successful stuff, then:

    perl /opt/zimbra/bin/zmmon &

    RESPONSE: (Zimbra::Mon::serviceInfo)
    host
    ip 127.0.0.1
    name localhost.localdomain
    COMMAND: zmlocalconfig -s > .localconfig.save.29865
    COMMAND: zmprov gs localhost.localdomain > .zmprov.localhost.localdomain.save.29
    865
    ERROR: service.FAILURE (system failure: getDirectContext) (cause: javax.naming.C
    ommunicationException localhost.localdomain:389)
    COMMAND: zmprov gacf localhost.localdomain > .zmprov.gacf.save.29865
    ERROR: service.FAILURE (system failure: getDirectContext) (cause: javax.naming.C
    ommunicationException localhost.localdomain:389)

    So am I right thinking this is the ldap server? Any ideas why this is the case? this is a brand new install of fedora core 4 ontop of xen.

    thanks!

    Default

    iptables is what we use to map the ports like LDAP from 7389 to 389. So you'll need to figure why this failed. Is your FC4 uptodate? Try "yum update".

    I was able to get Zimbra installed on FC4 after a clean install but I had to make the following sym links:

    cd /lib
    ln -s libcrypto.so.0.9.7f libcrypto.so.4
    ln -s libssl.so.0.9.7f libssl.so.4

    After that it worked find.
