    Default disaster recovery not working

    hello,
    I've restored the /opt/zimbra directory from backups and I'm trying to get this thing to come up on a second server with different IP address from original.
    It installs OK, then gets to a menu where most of the services are disabled. I enable them and confirm some things like hostname, etc.

    When I finish this menu, the services don't start. I try it manually and it fails. When I do a zmcontrol status, it says 'cannot determine services, exiting'.

    What can I do to start the services?

    Oskar

    Have you installed the required packages on this new server?
    • NPTL. Native POSIX Thread Library
    • Sudo. Superuser, required to delegate
    admins.
    • libidn. For internationalizing domain
    names in applications (IDNA)
    • cURL. A command line tool for transferring
    files with URL syntax
    • fetchmail. A remote-mail retrieval and
    forwarding utility used for on-demand
    TCIP/IP links.
    • GMP. GNU Multiple-Precision Library.
    • compat-libstdc ++-33. Compatibility
    Standard C++ libraries.
    NOTE: The 32-bit version of the compat-
    libstdc rpm package is required for both 32-
    bit or 64-bit servers.
    • For Red Hat Enterprise only: compat-
    libstdc ++-296

    these are all installed otherwise installing the dumb copy of zimbra wouldn't install.

    I'll post the log you requested.

    If you have a FULL /opt/zimbra backup I would do the following

    1- save /etc/init.d/zimbra to a different place
    2- Remove your zimbra packages installed with rpm -e or dpkg
    3- Remove everything from /opt/zimbra
    4- Restore your FULL backup to /opt/zimbra
    5- restore /etc/init.d/zimbra
    6- Edit /etc/hosts and add a new line with the new IP and
    the old zimbra hostname
    Like: 192.168.0.10 oldhostname.domain.com oldhostname

    Then try to start zimbra /etc/init.d/zimbra start

    []s
