    Default Branding themes - some observations on logos

    I have 4.01 NE. I went through process as laid out in online documents for changing logos. All image sizes per instructions.

    First, I created new theme based on sample (light). When I select this theme (user options) I do get proper logos on both login screen and web app. However, the link on web app logo still points to www.zimbra.com and not my URL as set in the _subs.txt file. Thus, logos so properly but URL does not.

    Second I changed logos within the _base/logos folder for BOTH zimbra AND zimbraAdmin folders. I also edited the _base/base/base_subs.txt file. Logos do NOT show as replaced. For the user interface, the Zimbra logos still show.

    I did stop/start services & clear browser cache. This is not a huge deal since I can also use "First" process above which works.

    However, the Admin login page no longer shows a logo. Further, nothing happens when I attempt to login. Just stays on the login screen. Thus, I can not get to Admin interface.

    I then replaced all logos with originals but still get no Admin page.

    Note - I also changed favicon.ico and ZimbraIcon.gif with my own. Not sure if this is what "broke" Admin login. From where I am right now (travelling), I do not have these 2 original files so I can not roll them back.

    Thoughts on how to "fix" Admin login?

    Cheers

    The url is a known issue: http://bugzilla.zimbra.com/show_bug.cgi?id=10588

    AFAIK we don't support/test changing the admin logos as it's normally not required to brand that part of the app.

    Do you get any JS errors on the admin screen? One idea would be to try overriding the skin with ?skin=sand although since you edited the base it may not allow you to override it.

    Two things happen (no pattern):

    1. Get error:
    HTTP Status 404 - /public/admin.jsp

    type Status report

    message /public/admin.jsp

    description The requested resource (/public/admin.jsp) is not available.
    Apache Tomcat/5.5.15
    ------------------------------------
    2. Upon admin login, screen goes back to login - nothing appears to happen.

    Note - I reverted ALL logos and files (except my own theme) back to original.

    In order to get admin access fixed, can I just re-install 4.0.1 NE?

    same problem here.

    all i did though was just installing a new skin based on the light skin.
    i did not do any chnages to the skin itself. so its basicaly the light skin. so this worked for a couple days without problems.

    now i cannot log into the admin anymore alltough client login works fine.
    i get a white screen with the input fields and some basic text like login, username:, etc.

    when i try to login i get:
    Code:
    Log In	
    Administration Console
    	Your Session Has Expired
    	Loading ...
    Username:	
    Password:	
    New password	
    Confirm		
    Log In
    Copyright © 2005-2006 Zimbra, Inc. 'Zimbra' and the Zimbra logos are trademarks of Zimbra, Inc.
    	Zimbra Administration	
    	
    	JavaScript error encountered in method ZaZimbraAdmin.prototype.startup
    The requested resource (/public/admin.jsp) is not available
    when i hit reload i get

    Code:
    The requested resource (/public/admin.jsp) is not available.
    when i restart the whole box i usually can login as an admin.

    any idea?
    how can i uninstall that skin properly again?
    i removed the skin directory and restarted the server

    zmprov gcf zimbraInstalledSkin still listens the skin

    the following does not do the trick
    zmprov mcf -zimbraInstalledSkin <skinname>



    running open source edition on debian sarge stable in vm ware.

    You can always override the cookie with ?skin=sand or any other valid skin name.

    Did you try
    Code:
    zmprov mcf -zimbraInstalledSkin <skinname>
    followed by a tomcat restart?

    Yes, and I get:

      -f/--file                      use file as input stream
      -s/--server   {host}[:{port}]  server hostname and optional port
      -l/--ldap                      provision via LDAP instead of SOAP
