    Smile Have upgraded 4 different Zimbra installs from ZCS6 to ZCS7

    All servers upgraded without any problems. Happy to report no issues.

    And it appears to be substantially faster than ZCS6 in the web client.

    Great job Zimbrians!

    I agree greenrenault on the performance boost. My mini-itx server only has 2GB and the ZWC flies now

    How is the performance compare with v5? We are still on v5.0.22.
    I am curious how the upgrade is from 5 to 7.
    Let me know
    Thanks

    I had a problem, and had to move back to v6. Posted topic: http://www.zimbra.com/forums/adminis...ltiserver.html, but still no comments or replys on that issue. All upgrades before went without any problems at all. Still looking for solutions.

    Have just upgraded from 6.0.10 NE to ZCS7 NE on Ubuntu 8.04 64 Bit (40 users 95% on GUI)

    First time round there was some moaning from the upgrade script about invalid license (obtained via the support portal). This was resolved after the upgrade by re-activating the license from the Admin GUI.

    A couple of ZCS GUI issues

    1) Print Font Size: My COS Value for Default font size is 10. The new "Print Font Size" attribute was set to 12pt in the default cos and for all users.

    zmprov modifyCos default zimbraPrefDefaultPrintFontSize 10pt

    However, this appeared to have no effect on the users, so I had to change each one with a little script based on:

    zmprov modifyAccount chris@mydomain.com zimbraPrefDefaultPrintFontSize 10pt

    2) The new (excellent) feature to be able to add the signature before or after existing text when replying or forwarding does not get set by the upgrade and the setting must be "applied" by going into preferences and saving (bug ?)

    3) I had to disable the "Social" Zimlets in a big hurry on a SME Email server !
    I don't think the upgrade should turn them on by default ??

    I will post more as I find it.

    Outgoing Message Filters appear to be broken.
    (I don't seem to be able to file bugs in bugzilla, so here goes)
    When I run the filter:

    We have encounter issues with printing from ZWC, in moving from ZCS 6 to 7.

    https://bugzilla.zimbra.com/show_bug.cgi?id=57908

    This has been a major pain for us.

    Regarding performance, we have noticed no appreciable difference.

    Hi,

    when upgrading from 6.x to 7.0.x just pay attention to:
    - read release info and follow the document on pre, during and post-installation steps
    - during upgrade select [Yes] to scan database integrity. Just to be on safe side.
    - after upgrade run this script as root to update MySQL database
    Code:
    /opt/zimbra/libexec/scripts/migrate20100913-Mysql51.pl
    - if somehow mail won't pass thru, you might need to authorise MTA by running this command:
    Code:
    sudo /opt/zimbra/bin/zmprov –m –l yourZimbra.server.com zimbraMtaAuthHost yourZimbra.server.com
    - If you have self-signed SSL cert, you might need to recreate them. It's simple, just search the forum or read release docs.

    That's pretty much all of issues I had on my ZCS box.
    Othervise, 7.0.1 version is quite nicer with CPU and resources as old 6.x versions.
