First off great piece of coding guys....it looks great.

I work for a small Biotech Company in West Virginia, and we wouls love to use zimbra as our mail server. Trouble is I can not get it to setup correctly. I am the only one in the bunch that has any linux expirence, and mine is at the novice stage. I installed FC3 and yum update so everything is current.

I then did a ps -ef | grep slapd to make sure that no proccess were running.
i also did a ps -ef | grep zimbra and nothing was running so.....

I did ./install.sh and away we went.....

Toward the end here is what I got :

Creating db...done
Setting the hostname to mail.vandaliaresearch.com...done
Setting the LDAP host to mail.vandaliaresearch.com...done
Initializing ldap...done
Creating server mail.vandaliaresearch.com...done

Setting services on mail.vandaliaresearch.com...done
Setting up SSL...done
Starting servers...Calling GetServiceInfoRequest (mail.vandaliaresearch.com)

RESPONSE: (Zimbra::Mon::serviceInfo)

ip 64.254.50.4
name mail.vandaliaresearch.com
done
ERROR: service.FAILURE (system failure: getDirectContext) (cause: javax.naming.CommunicationException mail.vandaliaresearch.com:389)

Installation complete!


So.....I have tried 3 times now, and each time I get a similar error message. So....

Any ideas would great.

Thanks in advance for your time.
