Problems with server rename
As the official Zimbra forum is dying I thought I would post here.
I have a server that I upgraded from 8.8.12 to latest 8.8.15. I brought Zextras from 2.6.1 to the latest.
The upgrade went fine without any errors but the proxyservice came up as 'stopped'.
After shutting down all services and trying to restart I received the message:
Starting proxy...nginx: [emerg] host not found /opt/zimbra/conf/nginx/includes/nginx.conf.web:27 failed
Looking in that file I saw a lot of references to a servername that is no longer in use. The server was renamed
quite some time ago.
I added the old servername back into /etc/hosts and the proxy service was then able to achieve a running state.
A little more digging revealed the following:
[zimbra@servername libexec]$ zmprov gacf | grep oldservername.domain.com
[zimbra@servername libexec]$ zmprov gacf | grep servername.domain.com
[zimbra@servername libexec]$ zmprov gs 'servername.domain.com' | grep oldservername.domain.com
Note two affected services are ReverseProxy and VersionCheckEmail.
Is anyone here familiar with correcting such issues?
