Question Kolab groupware server on Mandrake 10.0 Official


Has anyone been able to sucessfully configure a Kolab server on Mandrake 10.0 Official either by hand or by using the server wizard in drakconf??

I've been getting the error
Code:
You need to readjust your domain name, not equal to
localdomain or none.  Please launch drakconnect ro adjust it.
I've tried setting the hostname to server.localdomain, server.home.net, localdomain, localhost.localdomain and localhost, but it gives me the same error every time.

I'm looking into a pilot for using Linux in my workplace instead of Windows 2000, and MS Exchange must be replaced by a non-windows system.

Thanks

This doesn't sound like a kolab problem. It sounds like basic networking.

Issue the command "hostname -d" on your kolab host and see if you get a domain name returned. The networking will pick up the hostname info you plug into /etc/hosts

So, if in /etc/hosts all you have is:
127.0.0.1 localhost

Then your kolab software isn't going to have a domainname to work with.
Try appending something like,
192.168.1.5 server.home.net server

Then re-issue "hostname -d" it should just return "home.net" and that might be what kolab is looking for?

that didn't make a difference.
my /etc/hosts file contains
Code:
127.0.0.1		localhost
10.0.0.14		server.home.net server
to me it seems as though Mandrakes config wizard is a bit wonky

Does "hostname" only return "server" on your installation? Have you tried editing /etc/sysconfig/network and changing the "server" entry to "server.home.net"? I think this requires a reboot to pick up that change.

Or,

Have you tried issuing "domainname home.net" as root to set the domainname manually, then re-run kolab to see if it picks it up that way? This change should be picked up without a reboot.

Code:
poohbear@server poohbear]$ su -
Password:
[root@server root]# hostname
server.home.net
[root@server root]#
[root@server root]# domainname home.net
It worked after a "domainname home.net"
Thank you! :-) mabye someday in the future the 7-server MS Exchange system will be replaced, one can only hope

Kewl that it worked. But be warned, the domain name won't hold through a reboot (or at least it doesn't on mine) so you'll want to add that command to one of your boot up scripts so it gets set on every boot.

it shouldn't take much effort to write a little piece of script for rc.sysinit to pull the domain out of the hosts file and set it, but i just can't bring myself to do that today. That's something to do when (if) kolab breaks after a reboot. :-)

I've got a similar question, slightly different.

I'm trying to set up the Kolab server to be multi-homed, so that it allows accounts from various domain names. Some of my users have different domains their email addresses work from.

In the Postfix /kolab/etc/postfix/main.cf file it lists one domain, but I can't see how to make it have more than one answerable.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Tad
