    OK I think the MX record is resolved.

    zimbra shouldn't care about mx for the hostname, should it?

    Can you post your DNS file for the domain? If you did the same as the "split DNS" page then it would be something like "db.server.example.com".

    Well let me clarify my statement that the mx issue is resolved...When I nslookup mydomain.com or myserver.mydomain.com, it reports the IP as 192.168.1.3 (local IP) which is good, (I think) and should allow the Zimbra installation to resolve and continue installting, but it does not. I get the same installation errors as before. I used a mixture of the split dns wiki tutorial and dnsmasq package.

    By doing a quick look at these forums, it seems that 90% of the installation issued are related to the DNS/ldap. Perhaps the developers could add some coding to assist the user with these frequent issues.

    I know some people on here just throw out the "read the wiki" or "read the quickstart guide" but it doesn't seem to be helping. I'd like to write a how-to for Ubuntu to assist others who may be having similar issues. I think this would be a great setup for my 4-5 person small business, but I some of the installation issues (like setting up split dns/etc--which I'm still not sure is working) may be above the skill level of most average LINUX users.

    Here's the latest install log errors:

    Thank you for your assistance!

    p.s. I guess one way to get around this would be to remove the router from the lan setup so the IP would resolve directly to the machine. That will probably be my next route if I can't get things working...

    i agree, the dns situation is unnecessarily confusing. ideally a server application should not need to know or concern itself to this level, although im sure that by demanding correct setup at this stage its saving us all from many more questions later on in the procedure.

    however saying that, for instance the slapd process is bound to the hostname ip only and not localhost, id much prefer to see this on a nonstandard port and bound across all ips, or at least by default localhost (although of course there are replication issues with that), similar to mysql.

    Can you post your DNS file? (db.example.com)

    That doesn't quite look like the wiki article does it.

    Yes it does. Perhaps you could please assist me, instead of replying with the snide "I know something you don't know" attitude. I'm extremely frustrated and have been diligently trying to install the product for over a week before I came here for help, and I'm not any farther than I was day one.
