zimbra with two mailstores on separated VM

Postby malinkalive » Tue May 26, 2020 1:45 pm

Hi all,
is it possiable to install zimbra open source edition in specyfied below way:
- first single VM serwer with all neccessary componets to store emails for primary.domain.com only
- second single VM server with mailboxd feature to store emails for secondary.domain.com only

Our client wants deploy separate server just for secondary.domain.com for example:
When email arrived to primary.domain.com then it will be stored on first VM, but when arried to secondary.domain.com it will be stored on second VM. Is it possiable?

I found this how to https://wiki.zimbra.com/wiki/Separation_Of_WebApp_Service_From_Mailstore_In_ZCS8.5 but in my opinion it`s more like separte UI from mailstore, and in this situation all emails will be routed to mailbox backend. Am I wrong?

You can have multiple mailbox servers in a Zimbra Install. Some rough directions are available at http://docs.zimbra.com/docs/os/latest/m ... wwhelp.htm

Then, what you do is to create accounts on the appropriate mailbox server - one domain can be one one, and another domain can be on another.
