    Default LDAP problem with the installation of Zimbra

    I have set up the DNS, point mx to local server, and we are using Redhat 4

    [root@zimbra libexec]# ./zmsetup.pl
    Operations logged to /tmp/zmsetup.log.23271
    Setting defaults... MX: mailserver.MYSERVER.com (222.222.222.11)
    MX: zimbra.MYSERVER.com (192.168.0.111)

    Interface: 192.168.0.111
    Interface: 127.0.0.1
    222.222.222.11
    192.168.0.111
    Done
    Checking for port conflicts


    Note

    The previous configuration appears to have failed to complete

    Attempt to complete configuration now? [yes]

    When I finished set up the password for admin and press a to apply all the configuration. I got following errors.

    Saving config in /opt/zimbra/config.21459...Done

    The system will be modified - continue? [No] Yes

    Operations logged to /tmp/zmsetup.log.21459

    Setting local config values...Done

    Creating SSL certificate...Done

    Initializing ldap...daemon: bind(7) failed errno=99 (Cannot assign requested address)

    slap_open_listener: failed on ldap://zimbra.MYSERVER.com:389

    ERROR - failed to start slapd

    FAILED (1)


    ERROR

    Configuration failed

    Please address the error and re-run /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmsetup.pl to


    Please let me know what is wrong with this, I have spent two days, could not sort this out.

    What's in your hosts file? Do you also have a DNS A record for this server.

    In the zimbra server
    #vi /etc/hosts

    127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
    192.168.0.111 zimbra.MYSERVER.com zimbra

    and set up with the vi /etc/resolv.conf point to DNS server 192.168.0.1

    In our main DNS server (192.168.0.1)
    I have set up the /etc/named.conf
    with entry for zimbra.MYSERVER.com

    and in /var/named/chroot/var/named

    for zimbra.MYSERVER.com.hosts file I set up
    zimbra.MYSERVER.com. IN A 192.168.0.111
    zimbra.MYSERVER.com. IN MX 10 192.168.0.111
    zimbra.MYSERVER.com. IN MX 20 mailserver.MYSERVER.com.
    mailserver.MYSERVER.com. IN A 20 222.222.222.11

    And when I test both in zimbra server and dns server, both returned the good DNS result.

    #host -t mx zimbra.MYSERVER.com
    zimbra.MYSERVER.com mail is handled by 10 zimbra.MYSERVER.com.
    zimbra.MYSERVER.com mail is handled by 20 mailserver.MYSERVER.com.

    #host zimbra.MYSERVER.com
    it also return the current ipaddress 192.168.0.111

    Thank you
