    Arrow Install on box, bind to single IP, box has Multiple IPs

    Howdy! I'm excited about the potential of deploying Zimbra for one of my businesses. I run a server out of a colocation, which is in heavy production use for several domains, running various Open Source utilities (mail, imap, web, webmail, ldap, spam filtering, etc...).

    I do NOT want to interrupt these services for Zimbra - but I DO want to install Zimbra, and have it's services ONLY bind to a single IP address on the box. I have several ipaliases setup on the box, so I have multiple IPs on the eth0 interface.

    It seems to me that the Zimbra installer is all slick, but not able to install and bind only to the single IP address I want to specify.


    Does anyone out there know how to install (if at all possible) Zimbra in an environment like this?


    I've done numerous searches throughout the forums, but I'm not finding anything, since all my keywords seem to be a bit too generic to hone in on any other previous solution...

    Thanks a TON in advance to any help or pointers out there!

    Did you have a look at this post: Bind to Single IP?

    The only issue I can see for your case is you say you do not want to interrupt your running services, and the post I referenced changes things after the installation is complete. Can't remember if you can do the install, and not have things start up at the end of it, so that you can make the configuration changes and then start things up.

    Default Fantastic

    Hey SOXFAN - Fantastic - I'll give that whirl. It's not a big deal for me to shut down the existing services for a brief period (eg when I install Zimbra), then reconfig Zimbra to bind to a specific IP.

    I'll post back here on my experiences and any updates I work out. Thanks!
