also, zmsshkeygen still gives me the same error:
zimbra@zimbra:~$ zmsshkeygen

Generating public/private dsa key pair.

Your identification has been saved in /opt/zimbra/.ssh/zimbra_identity.

Your public key has been saved in /opt/zimbra/.ssh/zimbra_identity.pub.

zimbra@zimbra:~$
As I mentioned before, the localconfig.xml file suddenly was empty. In this file, the passwords are set for LDAP access. Now when I look at the error message above, it stats that the credentials are invalid. Could there be a relation here?

Zimbra Collaboration Suite Appliance died on me

so, since nobody had a clue what to do, I decided to build a new server parallel to the appliance edition and move the data. I installed zimbra, kept the config exactly the same, used the same license file, same passwords etc. and moved the data.
before moving the data, the server worked fine, no problems. I could log on and configure the server. After migrating the users and the data, I also migrated all my problems. Hurray..BUT I get more info now.
So, we still have the locally installed DNS who points all MX records to the internal address of the zimbra server. I migrated the LDAP entries but I left the rest of the config behind. Now I get this when I start the server:
zimbra@zimbra:~$ zmcontrol start

Host zimbra.infra.local

So, I still stand with my previous remark that the problem is not within the name resolution but somewhere in the LDAP config. Also, when I run zmsshkeygen, the problem still occurs:

Generating public/private dsa key pair.

Your identification has been saved in /opt/zimbra/.ssh/zimbra_identity.

The key fingerprint is:

The key's randomart image is:

ERROR: service.FAILURE (system failure: unable to lookup server by name: zimbra.infra.local message: [LDAP: error code 49 - Invalid Credentials]) (cause: javax.naming.AuthenticationException [LDAP: error code 49 - Invalid Credentials])
so, I am still stuck, even with a band new server, with the same trouble not getting forward.
I hope anyone has a suggestion..?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
Cheers,

Alex

well.. i'm no zimbra expert nor ldap, but i'd say that's password mismatch
you could nmap that box to see opened ports, and check if ldap is accepting connections..

or simply telnet localhost 389
if you're unable to do that, your ldap is not up
if it responds, you can try resetting it (zmldappassword --help) and try again
also you could try moving your old data to your fresh install, but not the ldap configuration folder, and see how it goes.
im pretty sure this is not the "best practice solution", but you might be able to troubleshoot and actually find the problem.
zmprov gas should work now, and show you active servers, otherwise you'll get ldap error
Best of luck

well, I'm not completely up2date but the problem definitely was within the LDAP database. In the end Zimbra gave excellent service because an engineer of Zimbra spent a lot of time fixing our Zimbra box.
Why it died is still a mystery though, and this bothers me a lot. But I guess we will never know.
But, I must say, a big hand for Zimbra for fixing our box!
