How to Setup Zimbra Collaboration Suite 8.0.3 Mail Server on CentOS 6.4 x86_64



zimbraZimbra Collaboration Suite (ZCS) is a groupware product created by Zimbra, Inc. Zimbra email is one of the popular open source email in the world. Before we start installing ZCS email software, please make sure that all the prerequisites has been configured and installed. This post will describe the steps to setup Zimbra Collaboration Suite (ZCS) 8.0.3 Mail Server open source edition on CentOS 6.4 64 bit. ZCS 8.0.3 only released the 64 bit version for Redhat Linux Enteprise 6 (RHEL6) or CentOS 6 operating system.

1. Disabled SELINUX :

[root@centos64 ~]# vi /etc/sysconfig/selinux

# This file controls the state of SELinux on the system.
# SELINUX= can take one of these three values:
#     enforcing - SELinux security policy is enforced.
#     permissive - SELinux prints warnings instead of enforcing.
#     disabled - No SELinux policy is loaded.
SELINUX=disabled
# SELINUXTYPE= can take one of these two values:
#     targeted - Targeted processes are protected,
#     mls - Multi Level Security protection.
SELINUXTYPE=targeted

2. Configure /etc/hosts and hostname :

[root@mail ~]# cat /etc/hosts
127.0.0.1   localhost localhost.localdomain localhost4 localhost4.localdomain4
::1         localhost localhost.localdomain localhost6 localhost6.localdomain6

192.168.2.104   mail.example.local mail
[root@mail ~]# hostname
mail.example.local

3. Stop sendmail, postfix or any MTA service :

[root@mail ~]# service postfix stop
[root@mail ~]# chkconfig postfix off
[root@mail ~]# service sendmail stop
[root@mail ~]# chkconfig sendmail off

4. Install the required packages and libraries using the following command :

[root@mail ~]# yum install nc sudo libidn gmp libstdc++ perl sysstat sqlite -y

5. Prepare DNS setup for your mail domain. MX record is mandotary in this setup :
Configure named.conf file to fit your DNS requirement :

/var/named/chroot/etc/named.conf
//
// named.conf
//
// Provided by Red Hat bind package to configure the ISC BIND named(8) DNS
// server as a caching only nameserver (as a localhost DNS resolver only).
//
// See /usr/share/doc/bind*/sample/ for example named configuration files.
//

options {
        listen-on port 53 { 127.0.0.1;192.168.2.104; };
        listen-on-v6 port 53 { ::1; };
        directory       "/var/named";
        dump-file       "/var/named/data/cache_dump.db";
        statistics-file "/var/named/data/named_stats.txt";
        memstatistics-file "/var/named/data/named_mem_stats.txt";
        allow-query     { localhost; };
        recursion yes;

        dnssec-enable yes;
        dnssec-validation yes;
        dnssec-lookaside auto;

        /* Path to ISC DLV key */
        bindkeys-file "/etc/named.iscdlv.key";

        managed-keys-directory "/var/named/dynamic";
};

logging {
        channel default_debug {
                file "data/named.run";
                severity dynamic;
        };
};

zone "." IN {
        type hint;
        file "named.ca";
};

zone "example.local" {
    type master;
    file "example.local.zone";
};

zone "2.168.192.in-addr.arpa" IN {
        type master;
        file "192.168.2.zone";
};

include "/etc/named.rfc1912.zones";
include "/etc/named.root.key";

Prepare forward zone :

/var/named/chroot/var/named/example.local.zone
;
;       Addresses and other host information.
;
@       IN      SOA     example.local. hostmaster.example.local. (
                               2013042301      ; Serial
                               43200      ; Refresh
                               3600       ; Retry
                               3600000    ; Expire
                               2592000 )  ; Minimum

;       Define the nameservers and the mail servers

               IN      NS      ns1.example.local.
               IN      A       192.168.2.104
               IN      MX      10 mail.example.local.

centos64       IN      A       192.168.2.104
mail           IN      A       192.168.2.104
ns1            IN      A       192.168.2.104

Prepare the reverse zone :

/var/named/chroot/var/named/192.168.2.zone
;
;       Addresses and other host information.
;
@       IN      SOA     example.local. hostmaster.example.local. (
                               2013042301      ; Serial
                               43200      ; Refresh
                               3600       ; Retry
                               3600000    ; Expire
                               2592000 )  ; Minimum

2.168.192.in-addr.arpa. IN      NS      centos64.example.local.

104.2.168.192.in-addr.arpa. IN PTR mail.example.local.
104.2.168.192.in-addr.arpa. IN PTR ns1.example.local.

6. Test the DNS :

[root@mail ~]# host -t mx example.local
example.local mail is handled by 10 mail.example.local.
[root@mail ~]# host -t ns example.local
example.local name server ns1.example.local.

7. Download Zimbra Collaboration Suite 8.0.3 from zimbra official website :

[root@mail ~]# http://files2.zimbra.com/downloads/8.0.3_GA/zcs-8.0.3_GA_5664.RHEL6_64.20130305090204.tgz

8. Extract Zimbra Collaboration Suite 8.0.3 :

7 thoughts on “How to Setup Zimbra Collaboration Suite 8.0.3 Mail Server on CentOS 6.4 x86_64

  1. So I have installed zimbra on CentOS, everything seems to be working, but when I go to the administration console, it reports that the MTA service has failed to load (and only the MTA service). When I go to the Zimbra mail server itself, it reports that MTA is running, and gives no errors. I can’t seem to find anything anywhere about what could be causing this…

  2. For a quick note, it might be useful to have some indication as far as what to replace with what. Such as were it says “example.local” I’m pretty sure I’m supposed to replace that with (servername).(domain) but then what would replace the “hostmaster” then, or do you leave it as “hostmaster” and fill in the “example” and “local” portions while setting up a nameserver and a MX record server? I guess my problem is that I’ve been tasked with building a sub-network, inside of a currently running network, I’ve been told all the ports, nameserver, and MX records have been setup on a server in the netwrok, outside of my sub-network, and have only been given the IP address for the server to use. So how do I direct my mail server to go outside the network and use an external nameserver and MX server?

    Example: myserver.subdomain.domain.com dns/name/mx server is at server555.domain.com

    Everything I’ve tried results in host -t ns command finding the localhost as the mx record, but no NS records found.

  3. Hi Shaun,

    Sorry if my blog post above not clear and make you confused. Actually, bind DNS was installed in the same server with zimbra server in order to ensure that i can proceed the zimbra installation since my home lab do not have internal DNS to resolve mx record for example.local. Without proper mx record configuration, you wouldn’t be able to proceed successfully.

    In actual environment, DNS server and zimbra server should be running in different servers ip address and segment. In this case you can fit it to your own environment. Make sure it can send email to local zimbra domain before you make it possible for external domain.

    My question to your issue.
    1. Can your zimbra server resolve google DNS or any internet DNS directly ?
    2. Do you plan to make your zimbra server as the final MTA to internet mx servers?

    Thanks,
