Directory creation error while installing Zimbra.

Attempting to create directory /opt/zimbra/perl5
mkdir /opt/zimbra/perl5: Permission denied at /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl/local/ line 269.


This issue occurs when "perl-homedir" installed. During Zimbra installation "perl-homedir" will attempt to create a Perl home directory for Zimbra user, but this package not required so it can be removed.

Step 1: Verify installed package

rpm -q perl-homedir

Step 2: Remove the package

rpm -e perl-homedir


Even though this error occur, Zimbra installation will finish successfully so no need to change Zimbra configuration.
This issue observed in CentOS/RHEL.
