Zimbra Appliance - Broken Pipe

So I got the Zimbra Appliance up and running but after being connected to the server for a couple minutes via ssh I get "root@zimbra:~# Write failed: Broken pipe" it also drops my web connections as well. When I try and reconnect:

 

iMac:~ administrator$ ssh root@10.0.1.16
@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@
@    WARNING: REMOTE HOST IDENTIFICATION HAS CHANGED!     @
@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@
IT IS POSSIBLE THAT SOMEONE IS DOING SOMETHING NASTY!
Someone could be eavesdropping on you right now (man-in-the-middle attack)!
It is also possible that the RSA host key has just been changed.
The fingerprint for the RSA key sent by the remote host is
ad:eb:2c:98:44:fe:02:cf:2d:98:61:d2:e4:94:30:eb.
Please contact your system administrator.
Add correct host key in /Users/administrator/.ssh/known_hosts to get rid of this message.
 
Any ideas why this is happening? I can't find any clues in the syslog. Where else should I be looking?

That's strange

The warning/error when you try to reconnect is one I've had before, but it has only been when I reuse an IP address for a new server (which already had been added to known hosts). That can be resolved by editing the known hosts file and removing the offending entry (will be the last one if you only just set it up).

But why it connects initially and then drops out like that I have no idea... AFAIK there should be an SSH log too (in /var/log).
