Purpose

Install Zimbra Collaboration and a DNS Server with Script, in Single-Server.

Resolution

Before start

It is really important to have the proper /etc/hosts file, be sure that you have the next in your /etc/hosts, in this case also using IPv6. Change the YOURIP and the hostname.example.com and hostname with your own values:

127.0.0.1       localhost.localdomain   localhost
YOURIP  hostname.example.com        hostname

# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
::1     localhost ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
ff02::2 ip6-allrouters

What is the ZimbraEasyInstall Script

This Script install and configures bind9 with the domain and IP that is defined while invoke the command. After that the Scripts prepare the keystroke script with a default installation of Zimbra Collaboration 8.6 (without dnscache) and the config.defaults script, using the domain, IP and password that is defined while invoke the command. Once everything is ready the Script download the latest version of Zimbra Collaboration 8.6, uncompress it and install it using the keystrokes script and the config script.

Advantages of use the Script

  • Time saving
  • Fully automated
  • Easy to use
  • Good for a quick Zimbra Preview

Usage and Example

The ZimbraEasyInstall Script is an easy way to install Zimbra Collaboration, without be worry of the DNS configuration, OS dependcies, etc. Just execute it and after a few minutes have Zimbra up and running.

Run the Script adding the TLD domain for your Zimbra Collaboration server, the IP of the DNS server (usually will be the same of the server, but instead you are using different eth interfaces), and the password for the Zimbra Collaboration server. Example:

root@zimbramail:/home/oper# ./ZimbraEasyInstall zimbralab.local 192.168.211.40 Zimbra2015
