    Default Bad installation Centos4.3

    Hello!

    I've been following the post on this forums for a while, trying to find the solution for my problem.

    2 weeks ago i tried to install zimbra under centos4.3, everything went fine except that the zimbra user is corrupted. I kept getting lots of "su: incorrect password" messages. Even if i try: su - zimbra i get this problem.

    The sudoers file seems fine for me.

    Any help is greatly appreciated

    Thanks,
    Fernando

    I would suggest you do an uninstall by running './install.sh -u' that will remove everything. When you've done that make sure there's no other zimbra processes running, if there are kill them and reboot. Whan that's done just install zimbra again. You shouldn't have any trouble with CentOS, many of us are running CentOS here without any problems.

    Silly question but did you run the zimbra install as root?

    Can you run "chmod 4755 /bin/su" and try 'su - zimbra' again.

    What does 'ls -l /bin/su' produce?

    I suspect one of two things:
    selinux is enabled

    the zimbra user's entry in /etc/passwd or /etc/shadow is incorrect.

    Can you verrify that the /etc/passwd entry is correct?
