    Default Upgrading Zimbra on Multi-Server Installs

    I'm not sure if this belongs in Administrators or Installation, but every time I need to upgrade Zimbra on my multi-server installs it always seems to be a pain. On the servers with the mailbox installed everything is usually pretty smooth, actually extremely smooth and its down for no longer than 30 minutes.

    However on the MTA boxes, the install scripts always hangs at trying to start mysql, which isn't installed since the only packages/services enabled are zimbra-core, zimbra-mta, zimbra-snmp. Everytime I upgrade a MTA only box I have to backup /opt/zimbra/ then uninstall it, remover /opt/zimbra/, remove any zimbra files in /tmp and then install the new version. This way it gives me the "menu" of what to enable/disable and set the ldap master host and password.

    Am I doing something wrong, or will there be a fix for this anytime soon?

    Angry I think I found it

    I think I found the problem but I do not know the solution.

    When upgrading to a newer version of ZCS on a server that doesn't has all the services running you will run into a problem when the install script goes to re-enable/configure the "old" settings that you had for your previous install.

    I seems the problem stems from zmlocalconfig grabbing all the settings and saving them to /opt/zimbra/.saveconfig/ The problem is this:

    mysql_bind_address = localhost
    mysql_data_directory = ${zimbra_db_directory}/data
    mysql_directory = ${zimbra_home}/mysql
    mysql_innodb_log_buffer_size = 8388608
    mysql_innodb_log_file_size = 104857600
    mysql_memory_percent = 30
    mysql_mycnf = ${zimbra_home}/conf/my.cnf
    mysql_pidfile = ${zimbra_db_directory}/
    mysql_port = 7306
    mysql_read_buffer_size = 1048576
    mysql_root_password = *
    mysql_socket = ${zimbra_db_directory}/mysql.sock
    mysql_sort_buffer_size = 1048576
    mysql_table_cache = 500
    None of this exists on this system akak "localhost" and "${zimbra_home}" refers to /opt/zimbra so none of those directories exist either.

    Anyone who has completed an upgrade on a Zimbra MTA please respond with how you did it.
