    Default Zimbra 6.x installation using hostname alias


    i was wondering if there was a way to force the Zimbra installation to use an alias instead of the real hostname.

    for example, let suppose i have a system named linux1 (internal non-routed network name), and it's external name is mail.domain.dom

    when i perform an installation, the configuration seems to prefer the name linux1, and it i change it after the installation is complete, the ldap server has problems starting up correctly.

    Please read the details (or search the forums) in the Quick Start Installation Guide on what's required for the /etc/hosts file.
