ZCS ships a default zimbra user with a disabled password. ZCS requires access to this account via ssh public key authentication. On most operating systems this combination is okay, but if you have modified pam rules to disallow any ssh access to disabled accounts then you must define a password for the zimbra UNIX account. This will allow ssh key authentication for checking remote queues
Set up the ssh keys. and populate the ssh keys, as Zimbra user

# su zimbra
# zmsshkeygen


To update the key
# zmupdateauthkeys


Verifying sshd configuration:

The authentication method assumes that sshd on the mta is running on port 22, and that RSA Authentication is enabled. test the ssh command with:

# su zimbra

# cd /opt/zimbra

# ssh -i .ssh/zimbra_identity -o strictHostKeyChecking=no zimbra@ARTHAR.ARTHAR.COM
(Swap ARTHAR.ARTHAR.COM for your hostname, as it appears in the error).

You should NOT be prompted for a password; if you are, recreate the ssh keys and retry the test.

Verify in /etc/ssh/sshd_config that the zimbra user is an allow user

# vi /etc/ssh/sshd_config
AllowUsers   admin     zimbra
The Zimbra hostname may be different than the system. Add the Zimbra hostname to /etc/hosts.allow.
# vi /etc/hosts.allow
ALL: arthar.arthar.com

Zimbra account has been disabled

If the above steps do not work then enable verbose output for ssh with:

# ssh -vi .ssh/zimbra_identity -o strictHostKeyChecking=no zimbra@ARTHAR.ARTHAR.COM

If the output from ssh indicates that Next authentication method: password as below, then the Zimbra account may be locked.

debug1: Next authentication method: publickey
debug1: Offering public key: /opt/zimbra/.ssh/zimbra_identity
debug1: Authentications that can continue: publickey,gssapi-with-mic,password,keyboard-interactive
debug1: Next authentication method: keyboard-interactive
debug1: Authentications that can continue: publickey,gssapi-with-mic,password,keyboard-interactive
debug1: Next authentication method: password
zimbra@ARTHAR.ARTHAR.COM’s password:
To verify this, as root check /etc/shadow. Locate the zimbra account. If the account has one or more ! in the line then the account is locked. zimbra:!!:13634:0:99999:7:::

Use this command to unlock the zimbra account (or you can edit the shadow file directly and remove them).

# usermod -U zimbra
Then check /etc/shadow again, there should be no ! for the zimbra account. You may need to do this multiple times to remove the ! and unlock the account.

# ssh -i .ssh/zimbra_identity -o strictHostKeyChecking=no zimbra@ARTHAR.ARTHAR.COM
SSH doesn’t allow Public Key Authentication
Edit the /etc/ssh/sshd_config

# vi /etc/ssh/sshd_config
PubkeyAuthentication yes

Restart the SSH daemon and try again
# service sshd restart

Enabling Server Statistics Display.

In order for the server statistics to display on the administration console, the syslog configuration files must be modified.

As root, type /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmsyslogsetup. This enables the server to display statistics.

For enable syslog to log statistics from remote machines.
# vi /etc/sysconfig.syslog

SYSLOGD_options=”-r -m 0”

# /etc/init.d/syslog restart
