system setup is a single host to run zenoss core5 (as i understand this to be the current stable release). i'm not new to zenoss, however for the past few years we have been using 4.1.x.

I've installed on Ubuntu 14.04 per the installation document. I am hung up on the point of starting and tuning zenoss. as I understand the document i am to connect to control center web interface to provision the server. this should connect via my static ip address on the eth0 interface or through DNS

when i go to https://zenoss <-- my servers dns name, i get a connection refused. nmap tells me that the server is not listening on port 443 as would be expected. telnet to confirm. why would it not be listening. server connectivity is verified via icmp from my workstation to the server. please help.

I wish i knew. does ubuntu need to have the web server feature installed My server was setup with a 100gb drive and a 300gb drive. the OS is installed (following all defaults during installation) on the 100gb drive. the second drive shows up as /dev/sdb. The only deviation from the setup manual was to assign a static ip address to eth0, as well as mask, gateway, and name server. I also had to change the ip address of the docker0 interface as the 172.17 subnet is in use within my infrastructure.

where do I find the install log. once i know where it is i can post it.

OK, strangley enough just after posting my last message i tried to access it, and it appears to be online. is it possible it took a few hours to finish setting up on the back end or should i consider my installation to be messed up. i'm going to proceed with trying to setup zenoss now.
