I was looking through some tutorials on how to install Zimbra ZCS on Ubuntu.

Mainly I kept coming across this one.

I had two question related to the installation,

  1. Zimbra only has an "Official Version" for Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. Can I load it on Ubuntu 11.04?

  2. In the tutorial the writer talks about setting your internal DNS server with an MX record for zimbra. If I am only going use Zimbra for my external domain, do I need the internal DNS records?


I need to learn to read more. The DNS settings are explained in the tutorial.

./ --platform-override is the command you're looking for to install on unsupported platforms.

Ah very nice. But is it stable? Because I could just as easily download the Ubuntu LTS. – ianc1215 May 29 '11 at 4:15
Heh, after you've got it up, you're on your own. I can't speak to that, I've run it on 8.04 and 10.04, both very stable. – Nirac May 29 '11 at 4:20
Ah I see, well I guess I need to get the LTS version, I am not taking any chances. Thanks – ianc1215 May 29 '11 at 4:23
