su zimbra zmprov md mysite.com zimbraVirtualHostname mail.mysite.com zimbraVirtualIPAddress "zimbra server ip address" cd libexec/zmproxyconfgen zmproxyctl restart
zmprov ms `zmhostname` +zimbraServiceEnabled service zmprov ms `zmhostname` +zimbraServiceEnabled zimbra zmprov ms `zmhostname` +zimbraServiceEnabled zimbraAdmin zmprov ms `zmhostname` +zimbraServiceEnabled zimlet zmcontrol restart
