    Default ugrading from opensource to Network Edition on same hardware


    I had installed opensource zimbra for 100 accounts, which is working
    fine but now for testing purpose, I had download trail network edition
    Therefore sales people had send the licence file to my email

    I had stop the zimbra server taken backup of that with rsysnc,
    then just ran NE installer, and answered "Yes" when prompted whether to upgrade or not. it has detected the licence successfully but at last,
    it has given the below error.

    Looking for valid license to install...failed to install license.


    Failed to install a license - this will prevent your server from functioning properly
    Please contact Zimbra to obtain a license

    su - zimbra
    zmlicense -i (license file location)

    Then try the upgrade again.

    I had the same problem, it turned out being file permissions on the license file. Changing the owner/group to zimbra.zimbra allowed the zmlicense command to work.

    I then performed the upgrade again and things went smooth.
