    Default Zimbra Trial License for Test Machine

    Hi all,

    For testing updates of Zimbra I make a disaster recovery from the production Zimbra server inside a virtual machine. After this, I have a copy of the production Zimbra system with all accounts (>700), but only one or two accounts has real data from a backup.

    With Zimbra 7.x you have to activate your license. I have read the Thread http://www.zimbra.com/forums/adminis...b-license.html, and I try to use a trial license for the testing machine. The installation went fine with the trial license, but inside the admin interface the real license is still in use. I try to update the license via the admin interface but get the following error

    Code:
    can't change install type from regular to trial
    How can I use the trial license with my testing machine?

    Try it with the --skip-activation-check switch

    Once you have a regular license installed, you can no longer install trial licenses. You should contact your sales rep for a license that can be used for your dev environment. These licenses are provided at no cost for testing scenarios such as yours.
