How to fix this?

Solutions :

By default, sudo configuration has deny any sudo command for the user who not logged in. Therefore you need to comment out this line on /etc/sudoers.

1. Login to another putty session(second screen) and leave the installation error (first screen) for a while.
2. Modify /etc/sudoers or alternatively, you just type visudo :

[[email protected] ~]# vi /etc/sudoers

3. Comment out this line only :

# Defaults requiretty

4. Go to the first screen where your zimbra installation failed. Then you can continue back the installation by executing the following command :

[[email protected] ~]# /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmsetup.pl
