ZCS Ubuntu 8.04 (6.0.8) to Ubuntu 10.04 (6.0.10) MIGRATION: NEW HARDWARE
Sorry if I'm hijacking this thread:
A couple days ago, one of my ZCS 6.0.8 on Ubuntu 8.04 LTS systems had a RAID1 complete failure with a couple of 1 month old 1TB Seagate SAS Drives (Part Number ST31000640SS 9EF248-003).
That's 3 of those drives that have failed on me now.....
I'm also having serious doubts about the RAID controller as well.
Thankfully the disaster recovery to a temporary server worked fabulously well. :-)
Anyway, it looks like we're going to have to go for a new server, so I thought I'd upgrade to Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and ZCS 6.0.10 at the same time.
So, I'm wondering if this would work on a new server:
Build OS: Ubuntu 10.04 LTS.
Install dependencies and split DNS.
Copy in entire /opt/zimbra from old UB8.04 server DO NOT START IT.
Run upgrade install of ZCS 6.0.10
Whaddya think ?
Many thanks !
