    Default Fedora 4 LDAP FAILED 256 ERROR

    I have been trying to get Zimbra running on my Fedora 4 box - but i haven't got that far - I keep receiving an error which states that LDAP has received an error I have tried installing it several times but i get the same error

    Does anyone know if there are any logs I should check or are there some tests I can perform:-

    This is the error ive been getting -

    Save config in file: [/opt/zimbra/config.3957]
    Saving config in /opt/zimbra/config.3957...Done
    The system will be modified - continue? [No] y
    Operations logged to /tmp/zmsetup.log.3957
    Initializing ldap...FAILED (256)


    Any help would be greatly appreciated thanks

    Hi Peter,
    We would be glad to provide any help we can.

    First of all, what do your install logs say?

    Also, have you tried searching the forums? LDAP errors are covered a lot, but let us know. We're here to help.

    Thanks i will look at the logs and get back to you - I have searched the forum regarding the LDAP issues and have seen a few which look similar to my issue which i'm experiencing and reading the posts and me being a Linux Newbie i'm wondering if LDAP is setup correctly on my machine

    thanks again

    Default FC5 Issue

    I had the same error when installing on FC5. A quick look at the installation log revealled that we were missing SSL libraries.

    If you don't have libssl.so.4, you can run:

    "yum provides libssl.so.4"

    which should show you which additional packages you may need to install.

    Default tmp

    It should tell you during installation where the log file is kept. If I recall, ours was stored under /tmp

    I am having the same problem. I have had this problem with Fedora Core 5 and 4 and I had trouble with centOS (about the same point). My log in tmp shows it stopping at the slapd:

    ERROR - Failed to start slapd

    I am not sure how to fix this and I haven't found anything in the forum that helps me with the problem. Could it be that I don't have a DNS setup for it yet?

    On a side note, can does anyone know how to set up a DNS using Bind and Fedora or CentOS?

    Well it is working, for the most part, now. I changed computers and put FC5 on the new one. I am having some java errors but I am runnig an update on FC now. I can't install spell for some reason, it gives me an error when instilling. But everything installed and is working. I am not sure what I did different from the FC4 to the FC5. Thx for the help.

    The single easiest way to tell why slapd won't start is to run the following and look at the last few lines.

    su - zimbra
    bash -x bin/ldap start

    Typical problems include
    Can't bind to port, presumably because slapd is already running.
    Can't bind to address, because hostname is not correct

    Fixed the java errors, it was because of my hostname.
