    Default Zimbra on Gentoo additional info

    Hi,

    I found the wiki on installing Zimbra on gentoo (debian chroot) very useful for my needs, however there is one point in the whole document that is missing:
    The configuration for mail queues. I did found a way to get it to work, and here's how to (maybe you could include this in the wiki?)

    1. chroot into zimbra
      chroot /zimbra
    2. install ssh
      apt-get install ssh
    3. edit /etc/sshd_config and set the port to 23 (in order not to collide with gentoo's sshd)
      port 23
    4. start sshd
      /etc/init.d/ssh start
    5. su into zimbra
      su - zimbra
    6. change zimbra's ssh port to 23 (or another one)
      zmprov ms MAIL.DOMAIN.COM zimbraRemoteManagementPort 23
      substitute MAIL.DOMAIN.COM with the fqdn of your host name and make sure the port is set to the one you set in your /etc/sshd_config file!
    7. generate new ssh keys
      /opt/zimbra/bin/zmsshkeygen
    8. deploy the keys
      /opt/zimbra/bin/zmupdateauthkeys

    finished!
    to test this, you can run the following command
    ssh -i .ssh/zimbra_identity -o strictHostKeyChecking=no zimbra@MAIL.DOMAIN.COM -p 23
    again, substitute MAIL.DOMAIN.COM with the fqdn of your host name, and change the port (-p 23) to the one you set your machine on
    You should not get any password prompt.

    Hope this is of any help for anyone.

    Will.

    Does that mean you'll let me?

    I'll go aheqad and create myself an account.

    Is it okay if I just copy paste this?

    Gentoo is a very active meta distro. Will it ever be supported by Zimbra. I have installed Zimbra tonight on Gentoo, but within a Centos 5 VMware server. Would be great to see it native.

    Need to integrate MailScanner now via PostFix and hold queue. If all okay will look to purchase full version.

    Please, please consider native Gentoo support

    Thank you!

    I was having problems with the authentication, because I don't ever run my servers on port 22.

    Second because all the help I saw up till now mentioned zmsshkeygen, but neglected to mention zmupdateauthkeys

    My Message Queue monitors now work.
