Zimbra Start Error: slapd daemon: bind(7) failed errno=99 (Cannot assign requested address)

If you move a Zimbra server and give it a new IP address, you may get the following error after attempting to start up:

Initializing ldap[3725] daemon: bind(7) failed errno=99 (Cannot assign requested address)

On the Zimbra forums, jholder says, “an error 99 for ldap start is almost always a hostfile issue.” Remember to change the entry for the server in /etc/hosts.
