Assumin

Hello All, I just issued the download command:

wget download.zextras.com/zcs-9.0.0_OSE_UBUNTU18_latest-zextras.tgz

and got a new version:

zcs-9.0.0_ZEXTRAS_20220209.UBUNTU18_64.20220207124901

Assuming that this is a new P23 or higher version.

So the question is it safe now the update or upgrade?

Is the process update/upgrade, to run the 'install.sh' file? this is for an upgrade, and if so, it will change some mods that we have on the server. Mainly the BCC for the archive server, which needs some mods on files.

Is there another way of installing the patches without doing the upgrade?

I'm trying to create an how-to for the future, while we don't move to Carbonio CE.

Also, I still see the use of old repos of Zimbra, shall I remove those? for the sake of cleaning the system.

Regards & thanks.

JG

It definately is a new build.

Before: zcs-9.0.0_ZEXTRAS_2022011.UBUNTU18_64.20220112091137
After: zcs-9.0.0_ZEXTRAS_20220209.UBUNTU18_64.20220207124901

Update was successful.

Seems Zextras needs to work on their communication skills... 😉

Hello guys! 

Assuming that this is a new P23 or higher version.

@jasgg_it I confirm that Zimbra 9.0.0p23 is currently published (`zcs-9.0.0_ZEXTRAS_20220209.UBUNTU18_64.20220207124901`).

Seems Zextras needs to work on their communication skills... 😉 

@mik thank you for your feedback, we'll try to do our best to be more clear on any changes to the build next time.

 

BTW I'm happy that the upgrade process is working fine now. Thank you all for your effort in supporting our work reporting any issue you have!

@matt Thank you for your reply.

You should in fact use a more 'communicative' approach to inform the users of news ...

I've upgraded my Prod server this morning, apart this below, nothing is noticeable:

 

Updating zimbraLDAPSchemaVersion to version '1639708921'
Updating global config and COS's with attributes introduced after 9.0.0_ZEXTRAS...failed.
Stopping ldap...done.
Upgrade complete.

Checking ldap status....not running.
Starting ldap...done.
Setting defaults...done.
Setting defaults from existing config...done.
Checking for port conflicts
Port conflict detected: 53 (zimbra-dnscache)
Port conflict detected: 53 (zimbra-dnscache)
Port conflict detected: 80 (zimbra-store)
Port conflicts detected! - Press Enter/Return key to continue 

I had to disable the DNSCACHE module because I use a splitDNS approach. No issues on that.

The line of "Updating global config and COS's with attributes introduced after 9.0.0_ZEXTRAS...failed.", I don't know what is referring to, but the system seems working fine after the reboot, and the redo of the modifications needed after.

So far, so good, lets hope it remains.

Regards.

if I run Ubuntu 18 right now and do a full upgrade to Ubuntu 20 and install the Ubuntu 20 packet of Zimbra, will that work and will I keep all my settings? Or is it needed to do a full new install on Ubuntu 20 and setup everything by hand again?

Hello @daz ,

I prefer to install a new environment and only migrate data, is a cleaner approach.

I've no experience with upgrading both OS and Zimbra.

Please before using in production try on a test enviroment, i've already used in past this method without problem.

Make sure to run on the last version of Ubuntu packages

apt-get && apt-get dist-upgrade

Reboot your system!
Allow Third party packages repos

echo -e "[Sources]\nAllowThirdParty=yes" > /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades.d/allow-thirdparty.cfg

Fix zimbra repository with new Ubuntu OS version codename

sed -i 's/OLD_OS_VERSION/NEW_OS_VERSION/g' /etc/apt/sources.list.d/zimbra.list

Upgrade Ubuntu

apt-get update && do-release-upgrade
