Thanks Bill for the reply, but just one thing, do you really beleave that zimbra only been supported on vmware has nothing to do with corporative interests? Xen, KVM and even HiperV are spread virtualization plataforms, so there's no way it has nothing to do. Or do you beleve that Oracle only supporting Indestructible linux virtualization has nothing to do with Oracle been the owner of that Red Hat tuned distro?
Anyway, I found in system requirements the info also and I think is a better place to look for it than bugzilla.
Thanks again for the fast reply.
I'll take a look at bugzilla and see what's there about kvm, proxmox is just one of the virtualization platfomorms using kvm as a backend, so maybe it can be supported in other platforms, like RHEV.
I don't think there are conspirations out there on this matter, just that companies persue money and sometimes they tend to jail people in their line of products to get more proffit.
Xen is not mentioned in system requirements, so not only you may be right about checking bugzilla, but also, that info needs to be updated in docs.
I have no intentions to waste the investment we made buying Zimbra NE by using an unsupported VPlatform, and that's all this is about. I'll see if payd licences have double vote in RFEs :-)
FWIW on the latest Zimbra 8.5 "Always On" webinar I thought I heard one of the presenters say that VMware, XenServer and KVM are supported virtualization platforms.
Best would be to open a support ticket with Zimbra to get clarification.
There is lots of Zimbra documentation that at this writing is just wrong and/or missing; there are a number of bugs open (I have one slotted for 7.2.7/8.0.7 regarding SpamAssassin customization documentation) to fix documentation.
It seems that Bugzilla items with a support ticket move though the chain of command faster than standalone bugzilla reports.
Hope that helps,
Thanks a lot for the comment. I pointed in the right direction.
