    Unhappy Server platform change RH to Ubuntu issues

    Hi, I'm trying to migrate Zimbra 4.5.4 from RH Linux to Ubuntu. I've got the exact same version of Zimbra on RH and Ubuntu, and I've copy over all the files per this document:

    However the upgrade process fails with this message (snipped the entire output to make it shorter):

    Setting defaults from saved config in /opt/zimbra/.saveconfig/
    Restoring existing configuration file from /opt/zimbra/.saveconfig/ backup schedule...done
    Operations logged to /tmp/zmsetup.log.10772
    Setting defaults...Setting defaults from existing config...Warning: null valued key 'mysql_logger_root_password'
    Upgrading from  to 4.5.4_GA_763
    Stopping zimbra services
    Stop failed - exiting
    UPGRADE FAILED - exiting
    So in the logfile it shows this (complete log) :

    COMMAND: zmschedulebackup -s > /opt/zimbra/.saveconfig/

    I don't see how to get around this problem. And interestingly enough there is no zmschedulebackup command on the RH system - if that even matters.

    Can anyone help?

    If the LDAP pw is zimbra, it's likely that you had a failed install, and tried it again.

    Try to copy the following files from your backup into your new install:

    Place them in the new /opt/zimbra and rerun the installer.

    Default Tried again

    OK, I did what you said, copied those two files from the Zimbra backup that I made onto the new server. Then ran the install again, which asked me if I want to upgrade to which I replied yes.

    The same failure happpened, and the LDAP user and pw are still showing in the install process as 'zimbra'.

    Any other ideas on how to fix this ?

    can you cat your localconfig.xml? Are there values in there? In particular, look for the password and ldap values.

    My guess is that your backup file is bad.

    Default config

    Here it is below. Also I wonder if my method backup made a difference? I used tar instead of rsync. Then I copied the tar file over to the new system, unpacked it, and proceeded to follow the instructions at Zimbra URL that I put in the first post of this thread.

    Default [Resolved] Here's how I did the migration from RH to Ubuntu

    I migrated from RH (CentOS) to Ubuntu x64. I followed the instructions here:

    Except that I loaded Zimbra 4.5.9 on Ubuntu and Zimbra 4.5.4 was running on CentOS.

    After installing 4.5.9, this is what I did (as opposed to the suggested 'upgrade' routine) :

    First install 4.5.9 on the new server.

    Then stop all the services (zmcontrol stop)

    Copy backup/mysql.sql from the old server to the new server into the backup/ directory

    Copy all the mysql psws (there are a few of them) from conf/localconfig.xml on the old server into conf/localconfig.xml on the new server (cut and paste the psw strings without touching the other XML tags)

    Start mysql server on the new server (bin/mysql.server start)

    Import the mysql.sql file into the new database server (running on port 7306):

    mysql --port=7306 --socket=/opt/zimbra/db/mysql.sock -u root -p (use mysql_root_password from localconfig.xml file)
    at the prompt inside mysql do this commmand to import the database:

    source /opt/zimbra/backup/mysql.sql

    Export the ldap data on the old server:

    su - zimbra
    openldap/sbin/slapcat -f /opt/zimbra/conf/slapd.conf -l /opt/zimbra/backup/ldap.ldif

    Copy the /opt/zimbra/backup/ldap.ldif file to the new server into the /opt/zimbra/backup directory

    Import the ldap data into the new server

    rm -f openldap-data/*
    su - zimbra
    openldap/sbin/slapadd -f /opt/zimbra/conf/slapd.conf -l /opt/zimbra/backup/ldap.ldif

    Copy /opt/zimbra/store/* from the old server into the new server

    delete the logger db (rm /opt/zimbra/logger/db/*)

    reinit the logger db (/opt/zimbra/libexec/zmloggerinit)

    stop zimbra services (zmcontrol stop)

    make sure none are left running
    ps ax | grep zim
    ps ax | grep mysql
    ps ax | grep ldap

    kill any running services.

    restart services (zmcontrol start)

    That's what worked for me. Pretty simple compared to all the other problems I encountered with the usual upgrade path - which repeatedly failed.
