    Default Single Node installation does not succeed

    I am using ESX 5.0 with the appliance version 8.0.1116 and cannot get the single node installation to succeed. We do have a firewall and a split-dns will be necessary. However, I have read many posts and can't determine if the zimbra server's ip should be dynamic or static. I know that the command /opt/vmware/share/vami_config_net should be run. When I set it to static, I get the error message "Did not find a matching DNS A record...". When I set it to dynamic, I have internet access, but get the same error message. Also, rebooting the vm does not keep the network settings. The Split-dns procedure starts out with installing bind9, which does not exist anymore and says to use dnsutils. When I do apt-get install dnsutils, it says it is the latest version. Executing dnsutils says it does not exist. The command which dnsutils returns nothing.

    Executing command apt-get install dnsmasq returns "Couldn't find dnsmasq". I am able to get to the internet since I can ping google.

    Any DNS server software will do and it doesn't have to be on the Zimbra server.
