Installing zimbra on an external firewire drive (OSX)

The printable version is no longer supported and may have rendering errors. Please update your browser bookmarks and please use the default browser print function instead.

Firewire drives are not considered local devices by default, therefor setuid/setgid perms are ignored.

1)Plug the firewire hard drive, formated it with hfs and created an entry for it in /etc/fstab like this one

UUID=5A0CBF6E-5EE8-3E14-A24A-36144214A36C /opt/zimbra hfs rw,local,auto 1 2

2)You may need to change the config of automount with the following command defaults write /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/ autodiskmount AutomountDisksWithoutUserLogin -bool true

3)The installer should have registered the service with launchd. You can verify this with service --list | grep com.zimbra.zcs If nothing is returned you can add it manual with launchctl load /opt/zimbra/conf/com.zimbra.zcs.plist
