    Default OS X Server 10.4.3 install issues

    Firstly, all is up to date, OS X Server 10.4.3, no outstanding updates in software update. It is a relatively new OS installation.

    Logging in as root, I have had the same problems as others, the postinstall script failure.

    I used workgroup manager to create a zimbra user with no password - still no joy.

    I downloaded and installed the java 5 SE - still no joy.

    Any next steps I should try?

    Default run installer twice

    Some people have had luck cleaning up completely, then running the installer twice:

    rm -rf /opt/zimbra/*
    rm -r /Library/Receipts/zimbra-*

    Run installer (fails)
    Run installer (succeeds)

    Default Java symlink at fault?

    Still no joy, I still get the "run postinstall script for zimbra store utilities"

    Looking at one of the previous posts about running zmsetup.pl - as i understand it is the postinstall script in question...

    202:/opt/zimbra/libexec root# ./zmsetup.pl
    Operations logged to /tmp/zmsetup.log.9092
    Setting defaults...Setting local config zimbra_java_home to /usr
    *** Running as zimbra user: /opt/zimbra/bin/zmlocalconfig -f -e zimbra_java_home=/usr
    /opt/zimbra/bin/zmjava: line 30: /opt/zimbra/java/bin/java: No such file or directory
    /opt/zimbra/bin/zmjava: line 30: exec: /opt/zimbra/java/bin/java: cannot execute: No such file or directory
    Done
    Checking for port conflicts

    Main menu
    ...


    So is the problem the symlink that it is expecting?

    Default postinstall

    In this case, the postinstall script is in the package, it's not referring to zmsetup.pl.

    WHat does java -version return?

    Default zimbra user

    Did you try creating the zimbra user by hand, and re-installing?

    Default Java version

    Java version as follows:

    202:/opt/zimbra/libexec root# java -version
    java version "1.4.2_09"
    Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.2_09-232)
    Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.2-54, mixed mode)


    And yeah I created the zimbra user by hand (in Workgroup Manager) with no password.

    Default Java link changed...

    I've changed the symlink, rebooted, removed /opt/zimbra and the reciepts...

    Installer run, failed, and in the hope that it will help pinpoint what's going on, this is what the /var/log/installer.log gives me:

    Default user not created bug

    The zimbra user doesn't exist:

    > Nov 23 11:58:58 xserve-2 : postinstall[1148]: chown: zimbra: Invalid
    > argument

    Create it, then run the installer

    Default Zimbra user...

    Ok, got it sorted:

    FYI if one creates the zimbra user via the Workgroup Manager, it will fail... however if the user is created using the accounts ppref pane in the system preferences, it will finish the install correctly.

    Thanks for your help
