Hello everyone,

I tried to upgrade my zcs install from 6.0.9 to both 7.0.0 beta 2 and beta 3, and it failed in both case with the same error.
The second time, I managed to keep the logs and output of installation, they are as follow :
install.log : nothing unexpected
zmsetup.log :

The install process seems to start mysql (for the mysql_upgrade step), but quickly after it tries to access the mysql server and it has died for an unknown reason...

The error was identical with zcs-7.0.0-beta2, and I could fortunately always revert it to 6.0.9 using lvm snapshot.

I would be very happy to test 7.0, so if anyone has any idea of how to do it, I test it as soon as possible!
