Admin console on MTA

Postby jbarlocker » Wed Aug 21, 2019 3:24 pm

I have an MTA available to the internet, and I would like to have other admins access the admin console while out of the office. Can the admin console be enabled or installed on an MTA?

If so, can someone point me in the direction of some documentation on how to do that?

Admin Console, and the end-user web UI, can only be installed on mailbox nodes. (Although you technically can deploy the static content on a separate webUI node.)

You can access the Admin Console via the proxy, and you can use firewall rules to allow TCP port 9071 access from only certain IP addresses if you wish.

On the proxy (I'm guessing also the MTA) server, as the zimbra user, just run:

Code: Select all

/opt/zimbra/libexec/zmproxyconfig -e -w -C -H `zmhostname`
zmcontrol restart


You'll then be able to access the Admin Console at:

https://proxyhost .domain.com:9071/

Hope that helps,
Mark
