  2. Installing Zimbra 6.0.4 on openSUSE 11.1 64 bit – Part2, Setting up local DNS Server

DOWNLOADING & INSTALLING ZIMBRA BINARY

After installing the base OS, adding some package & additional library and preparing the DNS Server, we can go to the final step : installing Zimbra.

  1. From the konsole/terminal, move to  /opt folder and then download the Zimbra Binary Installer for SLES 11 64 bit
    [code language=’cpp’]
    cd /opt
    wget -c http://h.yimg.com/lo/downloads/6.0.4_GA/zcs-6.0.4_GA_2038.SLES11_64.20091214184036.tgz
    [/code]
  2. Extract it
    [code language=’cpp’]
    tar -zxvf zcs-6.0.4_GA_2038.SLES11_64.20091214184036.tgz
    [/code]
  3. Edit file /opt/zcs-6.0.4_GA_2038.SLES11_64.20091214184036/bin/get_plat_tag.sh and add (or edit the openSUSE 10.2 version) the openSUSE 11.1 on the openSUSE version script as below :
    [code language=’cpp’]
    grep “openSUSE 10.2” /etc/SuSE-release > /dev/null 2>&1
    if [ $? = 0 ]; then
    echo “openSUSE_10.2”
    exit 0
    fi
    [/code]
    so, the line will looks like this :
    [code language=’cpp’]
    grep “openSUSE 11.1” /etc/SuSE-release > /dev/null 2>&1
    if [ $? = 0 ]; then
    echo “openSUSE_11.1”
    exit 0
    fi
    [/code]
  4. Go to Zimbra installation folder and run the installation script :
    [code language=’cpp’]
    cd /opt/zcs-6.0.4_GA_2038.SLES11_64.20091214184036/
    ./install.sh –platform-override
    [/code]
  5. Follow the installation wizard (some screenshot below using remote access via ssh)
  6. Please note that the installation process need our response regarding the configuration. Below is some important step :
    • Asking about OS. Binary installer built for openSUSE 10.2 but we used it for openSUSE 11.2. Just answer “Y” while Zimbra asking about different platform
    • Asking about DNS ERROR resolving MX. Just answer “Y” for change domain and then typing your domain name (in my case : vavai.net) instead of your hostname (mail.vavai.net)
      `
    • Zimbra Admin password. Zimbra will ask for Zimbra Admin password on the final confirmation. Just write your password but beware the password will be typing as plain text and doesn’t masking with different character
      `
  7. At the end of installation, just stop and then start the Zimbra service to make it usable and ready for testing
    `
  8. Zimbra web mail should be easy to access by using host name or IP (in my case : http://mail.vavai.net or http://192.168.1.250) while the Zimbra Admin could be accessed with https protocol on port 7071 (https://mail.vavai.net:7071 or https://192.168.1.250:7071)
    `

    `

MOST ANNOYING BUGS
The installation process should be working flawlessly  and the overall system ready for testing but some weird problem could be found, especially regarding log & Zimbra status. I’m working on the status & logger bug fix because the identical problem also hit me with SLES 11. Anyway, beside the logger problem  mail system working nice both with webmail and mail client. I’ll be update the bug fixes status as soon as possible.

  1. Hi,
    thanks a lot for your tutorial. I have trouble to install ZIMBRA 6.0.4 on a OpenSuse 11.2 64-bit system. After I successfully installed all rpm’s through the installer and I definded a admin-password for ZIMBRA, the configuration would not be loaded. With a look in the logfile the ldap would not start:

    Maybe it is caused by a incompatibility to my /usr/lib64/libstdc++.so.6.0.12, I placed a symbolic link to /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.5 to meet system requirements.
    Have you a hint for me, how to complete the installation successful?

  3. Hi Chr1s,
    You should have a preliminary error report before found an LDAP initialization report. Could you please send me an installation log and the installation process log to vavai at vavai.com

  9. Great tutorial….
    how about if i have 2 hardisk partition (first one is 30GB for OS and another one is 500 GB) and i want to install zcs in folder other than /opt/, such as /mount/…/zimbra maybe…
    can you give me some clue to implement this?
    thanks

  11. @Billion,
    Zimbra will automatically install it on /opt folder. I would recommend you to simply mount your 500 GB of harddisk as /opt folder. It’s a simple way rather than placing Zimbra on different folder.

  13. After installing zimbra with ./install.sh –platform-override zimbra installer reports an error of a missling lib file (/usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6). I created a sym link which seems to have immediately resolved the problem but I am not sure of long term repercussions (ln -s /usr/lib64/libstdc++.so.6 /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6)
