zimbra ERROR: opendkim does not appear to be installed - exiting

Post by ienbeuz »

Hello,
My current zimbra version is : 9.0.0 Network, zimbra is running on CentOS7

I want to configure DKIM entry's for my domains on zimbra

Using /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmdkimkeyutil -a -d example.com
i get the error zimbra ERROR: opendkim does not appear to be installed - exiting

After looking at zmcontrol status
Host examplehost.com
convertd Running
ldap Running
logger Running
mailbox Running
service webapp Running
snmp Running
spell Running
stats Running
zimbra webapp Running
zimbraAdmin webapp Running
zimlet webapp Running
zmconfigd Running

I can see that opendkim isn't listed and not installed but can be found in the directory /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmdkimkeyutil
I installed the OpenDKIM package yum install opendkim opendkim-tools
But the way it is configured the key will be generated with the opendkim package and not the zimbra zmdkimkeyutil

How do i set up or install opendkim directly in zimbra ?


Any help would be appreciated

First off, check to see if the service shows in the list of available services.

In the Admin Console, navigate to
Home->Configure->Servers->[Your server name]->Services

Look to see if the service
[ ] DomainKeys Identified Mail

is listed, and enabled.

If listed but not enabled, then enable it.

I do not have a multi-server environment but, it is possible this service does not get installed on every node in a multi-server setup

Thank you for the answer,

Indeed it is a multi server environnement, i was trying to enable the option on the wrong server, switching to the gw server allowed me to use /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmdkimkeyutil -a -d example.com

zimbra-opendkim is an "option" for zimbra-mta.
It can be used (and setup) only on MTA host.
