I've run 32-bit Zimbra on CentOS (inside a VMware virtual machine) without problems I think since version 3. I've been very pleased with it. I thought that over the weekend I could replace and Exchange server with the latest Zimbra. I'm trying to create a new 64-bit e-mail server with the latest Zimbra but have been plagued with problems, so I'm starting from scratch (again) working through things step by step.
My notes laying out my steps and thinking are here.
My specific question:
I have found no guidelines whatsoever in any of the documentation or my googling what packages one should include during a RHEL operating system install.
According to my googling, I've assembled this list from people's recommendations.
Applications > Editors
Development > Development Libraries
Development > Development Tools
Development > Legacy Software Development
Base System > Administration Tools
Base System > Base
Base System > Legacy Software Support
Is this reasonable?

Yes, I know CentOS is not officially supported. The company has a budget of zero for replacing Exchange. (Yeah, I know….) As far as this question goes, there should be zero difference between RHEL and CentOS.
