My setup will help explain my problem so here it is:
I have a single server running kvm. on that server I have zimbra oss 6.0.8 (live)
and I added a vm to test zimbra ne 6.0.9 (test)
I only have a single IP.
At installation I changed all the default ports to avoid any conflicts with the live zimbra server. so 993 became 1993, etc.
The only port which I can't seem to change is the admin port 7071.
I tried the following as the user zimbra:
$ zmprov ms `zmhostname` zimbraAdminPort 17071
$ zmprov mcf zimbraAdminPort 17071
... each time restarting zimbra with:
$ zmlocalconfig -e zimbra_admin_service_port=17071
sadly the port remains on 7071.
$ zmcontrol restart
Any advice on how to change the admin port or simply setup the two servers to work together without any risk of affecting the live one is very welcome! :)
