    Lightbulb installation of OpenSuse 10 version

    hi all,

    downloaded the latest openSUSE from opensuse,org 10.1 from recollection.

    Downloaded the openSUSE version of Zimbra.

    Go to install it, get warning, UNKNOWN version, and it states that the Zimbra I have is for SUSE 10 ???

    Its installing as I speak, so I will see if I get the same LDAP error 256 from recollection that I had before.

    Yes, the version of Zimbra you've downloaded is for SuSE 10 not 10.1 You may or may not have problems, search the forums as I believe there have been a few users with 10.1

    Hi Bill,

    THanks for that, I read one such post that the chap (school project thread) had dns errors, and a problem with IP6, but got past the LDAP problem error 256.

    This seems to be where all my attempts are screwed.

    Is there a simple way of seeing what the LDAP problem is? error 256 comes back with a lot of different scenarios. I am trying this in a VMWARE bubble firt before stripping a server for a test environment.

    My A and MX records are correct (zimbra.netearth.net).

    If you're behind a firewall then you'll need split-DNS set-up, have a look at the wiki article here: http://wiki.zimbra.com/index.php?title=Split_DNS

    Hi Bill,

    I will look at that now, but will that get around the LDAP problem, or is that the LDAP problem?

    Cheers,
    Chris

    That is the LDAP problem, it gets that problem because your install of ZImbra can't resolve the IP of the zimbra server. You get the public IP address rather than your private LAN IP and Zimbra (LDAP) falls over.

    Default installation of OpenSuse 10 version

    I had this issue and it was due to the /etc/sudoers is mode 0440, should be 0640

    chmod +640 \etc\sudoers
    ----
    Other issues worked around:
    ----
    ISSUE: Checking for port conflicts
    Port conflict detected: 25 (zimbra-mta)
    Port conflict detected: 25 (zimbra-mta)
    FIX:
    chkconfig postfix off
    ----
    ISSUE: Starting spell...FAILED
    /opt/zimbra/httpd-2.0.54/bin/httpd: error while loading shared libraries: libexpat.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    FIX:
    Install curl compatibility package
    ln -s /usr/lib/libexpat.so.1.5.0 /opt/zimbra/httpd-2.0.54/lib/libexpat.so.0
    ----

    Now I have an issue that the Zimbra packages are not accessible from anywhere but the localhost.

    Not sure what the issue is.
    any Ideas?

    Is the /etc/hosts file correct? Is there a local DNS server with correct records pointing to your Zimbra server? Have you disable the firewall & Apparmor?

    Default installation of OpenSuse 10 version

    Thanks for the response.

    >Is the /etc/hosts file correct?
    Well it does contain the correct info for the host.

    Is there a local DNS server with correct rocords pointing to your Zimbra server?
    I have not set DNS up yet, but my machine will resolve to the proper IP address.

    Have you disable the firewall & Apparmor? Yes.

    I think I may have a deeper issue. The services show up weird with netstat:

    tcp 0 0 :::7025 :::* LISTEN
    tcp 0 0 :::22 :::* LISTEN
    tcp 0 0 :::7035 :::* LISTEN
    tcp 0 0 :::7071 :::* LISTEN

    Any ideas?

    Yes, those ports are correct. Are all the Zimbra services running? Try 'zmcontrol status' as the zimbra user. You'll need A & MX resolution for Zimbra (postfix) to be able to find the server. Do you have an entry in the /etc/hosts file that reads something like:
    Code:
    192.168.1.x mail.yourserver.com mail
    where you LAN IP is used and the FQDN of your server is listed?
    Regards
