Hi everybody,

the company changed its name from abc to xyz. And we reflected the change in hostname of the server with Zimbra running and in the company domain in use into (Zimbra was setup with only the old domain to change, no others domain).

We made these activities:
- setup DNS field correctly (MX) throught the ISP control panel
- change hostname in our server (with Zimbra stopped) Apple Xserve Dual-Core Intel Xeon 2x2Ghz 10GB running MacOSX Server 10.4.11
- /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmsetservername name.xyz.ext (the new name of the server)
- zmprov -l renameDomain abc.ext xyz.ext
- reboot
- zmlocalconfig
- zmlocalconfig -e av_notify_domain=name.xyz.ext (there was the old one)
- zmlocalconfig -e av_notify_user=admin@xyz.ext (there was the old one)
- zmlocalconfig -e smtp_destination=admin@xyz.ext (there was the old one)
- zmlocalconfig -e smtp_source=admin@xyz.ext (there was the old one)
- zmprov gacf
- zmprov gacf | grep abc.ext
these confs was not updated:
- zmprov md abc.ext zimbraAttributeToChange xyz.ext
ERROR: account.NO_SUCH_DOMAIN (no such domain: abc.ext)
zmprov md name.abc.ext zimbraAttributeToChange name.xyz.ext
ERROR: account.NO_SUCH_DOMAIN (no such domain: name.abc.ext)
zmprov cd abc.ext zimbraDomainType alias zimbraMailCatchAllAddress @abc.ext zimbraMailCatchAllForwardingAddress @xyz.ext (we need to receive mail to the old addresses for a lot of time)
- zmprov gacf | grep abc.ext
(the wiki account was the old one...)
- zmprov mcf zimbraNotebookAccount wiki@xyz.ext
- stop and startup of Zimbra
- in /opt/zimbra/conf we updated some old name in swatchrc and in perditionn.conf

Zimbra works fine.

But we have a problem when we login into web administration: sometimes Zimbra shows a window with the error "The account doesn't exist. Message: no such account: wiki@abc.ext (--the old one!--) Errore code: account.No_SUCH_ACCOUNT Method: GetFolderRequest Details:soap:Sender"

Another problem was the certificates of Zimbra, these are for the name.abc.ext (the old one).

What do you think about the changing steps adopted? How can we solve the lasts two problems?

Thank you very much.
