  3. Hi!

    I got problem with importing initial database and schemas.

    When I have used command:
    sudo zcat /usr/share/doc/zabbix-server-mysql*/create.sql.gz | mysql -u zabbix -p zabbix

    It show me:
    Enter password: gzip: /usr/share/doc/zabbix-server-mysql*/create.sql.gz: No such file or directory

    What I did wrong?

  4. Hello and thank you for your video! I have tried a few times to follow your steps and can get all the way to the zabbix front end but on the last step of the front end gui it says cannot create config file and prompts me to install it manually. Any idea what I could have done wrong and how to correct it? Thank you again for putting this together!

  6. Hi,
    Im configuring a zabbix server in a Linux CentOs8 that is running on a Vmware.
    This virtual machine is running on a server that has 3 physicals Adapters. 
    Each physical adapter has it own IP segment like bellow:


    The virtual machine has IP like bellow:


    Just Adpt1 and ens160 is working.
    If I change the IP segment of ens160 to the others segment it works. But I need each adapter communicate separately.
    In VMware settings all adapter were created and marked as bridge.

    Please help 
    I'm using the VMware Workstation 16
