    Default [SOLVED] Removed IM server in FOSS 7.0

    Oh oh,
    i just noticed there no IM feature in FOSS 7.0
    but in the release notice there was a comment that only next major version
    (i think it's 8.0) will not have this feature.

    our users are used IM very successfully.
    I think IM is very usefull feature and must be grow into non-beta version.
    If somebody want to use another XMPP server, lets them go.
    But for me it's very simple to have Mail, IM, Samba users in one server,
    without
    installing ejabberd monster.
    Please return IM in 7.0 or may be in 7.0.1 release. I cant upgrade my 6.0.10 to
    7.0 without this feature, my users will eat me on breakfast if i turn of IM.

    It hasn't been removed from Zimbra 7 but it does need activating and it will be removed in the next major version. This subject was raised almost a year ago in these forums, search for the details.

    wow, actually hasn't been removed but removed checkbox from web admin console
    To enable for default COS, do command from zimbra user:
    zmprov mcf zimbraXMPPEnabled TRUE
    zmprov mc default zimbraFeatureIMEnabled TRUE
    zmprov mc default zimbraFeatureInstantNotify TRUE
    zmprov mc default zimbraPrefIMAutoLogin TRUE

    But it is enable IM for all users in default COS, is there any ability to disable IM for some users from web admin console, or any feature to return IM checkbox into web admin console?

    And how we can try to convince zimbra developers not to disable IM, and left it optional?

    You can't, it will be removed in the next major release. Search the forums for details of what will happen when it's removed - there's a whole thread about it (and bug reports).

    Sorry, but i'm not so good in English and may be not so good in searching
    through this forum, but only thread i found are date of 2008. And relating to FOSS 5.x 6.x, so a think its outdated.

    And Bug#45932 by Sam Khavari <sam@zimbra.com> has no votes, no one.
    I think that indicate that nobody wants to disable IM

    So if you decide to disable it, as you like
    I can't to force you not to do that, but it will be good idea to post some manual
    or success story about integrating ejabberd2 with zimbra ldap.

    From my side i'm just writing article about integrating Zimbra, Samba, Squid (with NTLM_auth), dansGuardian (with zimbras clamAV), sqlim and some other services on Oracle Enterprize Linux 32\64 platform.

    Unfortunatley the lack of votes will not stop it from being removed. In that bug report you'll see several mentions of other bug reports that will tell you what will be happening in the future with regards IM in Zimbra - read the whole bug report plus the other reports mentioned in there.

    I assume you don't mean 'me' specifically? I'm just answering questions on these forums.

    As I've already said, read the bug reports for full details of what the future may hold on this subject.

    I am able to disable IM for a user with:

    zmprov modifyAccount $ACCOUNT zimbraFeatureIMEnabled FALSE

    I see the current status is:

    zmprov getAccount $ACCOUNT | grep IM

    I you want to disable IM for all users do something like this:

    for ACCOUNT in $( zmprov -l gaa ) ; do echo $ACCOUNT ; zmprov modifyAccount $ACCOUNT zimbraFeatureIMEnabled FALSE ; done

    Thanks,
    Martin

    @ mavlenko's Thank you for your post very helpful and must have instructions on how to enable internal IM for Zimbra 7....

    Zimbra please dont remove “internal IM” for future release. I don’t understand you add non sense like social networking modules by default but remove a critical feature like "Internal IM"

    The IM server is being removed from ZCS, there's no doubt about it.
