    Default Unistall zimbra server (installed by OS X binary)

    Dear friends,
    I have just installed zcs-4.0.4_GA_457.MACOSXx86 from the binary distribution. The installer worked well and now the server is running on my MacBook Pro with OS X 10.4.8.

    Now I WANT TO UNISTALL the whole zcs. On the documentation they say that I have to run install.sh from the zcs directory but I can't find neither the dir nor the install.sh script.

    I really need your help, please let me know...
    Ciao

    The search button would have given you the answer but -
    Shut down zimbra, then rm -rf /Library/Receipts/zimbra* /opt/zimbra

    Thanks, actually I did it but looking at the system logs I discovered that the launchd service was still attempting to run zimbra at startup, slowing down and filling the log file with plenty of errors. Look:

    Nov 22 12:04:31 MacBookPro launchd: com.zimbra.zcs: getgrnam("zimbra") failed
    Nov 22 12:04:31 MacBookPro launchd: com.zimbra.zcs: exited with exit code: 1
    Nov 22 12:04:31 MacBookPro launchd: com.zimbra.zcs: respawning too quickly! throttling
    Nov 22 12:04:31 MacBookPro launchd: com.zimbra.zcs: 8 more failures without living at least 60 seconds will cause job removal
    Nov 22 12:04:31 MacBookPro launchd: com.zimbra.zcs: will restart in 10 seconds

    [... 6 more attempts ...]

    Nov 22 12:05:51 MacBookPro launchd: com.zimbra.zcs: getgrnam("zimbra") failed
    Nov 22 12:05:51 MacBookPro launchd: com.zimbra.zcs: exited with exit code: 1
    Nov 22 12:05:51 MacBookPro launchd: com.zimbra.zcs: respawning too quickly! throttling
    Nov 22 12:05:51 MacBookPro launchd: com.zimbra.zcs: too many failures in succession


    This was bad! So I removed the zimbra plist file used by launchd from
    /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/
    and now my system is booting clean.
    Furtermore I had to remove plenty of stuff such as orphan log files, receipts, the user "zimbra", etc..., etc...

    VERY BAD FOR MAC USERS!

    Ciao
