I'm using zimbra 6 (6.0.8_GA_2661.RHEL5_20100820051652 CentOS5) on CentOS 5 server

Zimbra is working fine.

Now I want to host some files on Apache.

I'm referring to this document on how to run Apache and Zimbra webmail on the same host.

But when I run below command gives an error

zmprov ms zimbra.mydomain.com zimbraMailPort 81


ERROR: account.NO_SUCH_SERVER (no such server: zimbra.mydomain.com)

What is the output of nmap localhost -p80,81 to check if the Apache web server port (80) and the zimbra port (81) are active. –  JakeGould Nov 6 '14 at 22:02

As it's pretty clear from the error, that the command is not able to resolve zimbra.mydomain.com.

To check the same, try this command at your terminal:

# host zimbra.mydomain.com

I believe that it shouldn't work.

To fix the same, open your /etc/hosts file with vi command like this

# vi /etc/hosts

and create a entry like this

ip_address_zimbra  zimbra.mydomain.com

Save file and quit and try the command again.
