I had install ZCS 7.2 on ubuntu 10.04 a few months ago. I would like to upgrade to the new 8.0 since 12.04 is supported now and we are running mostly ubuntu 12.04. The only 10.04 we installed were for Zimbra.

I would also like to fix a few issues - I originally installed on the only internet facing server (ddi1-vm5) we have since I was under a lot of time constraints. So that server also have a few other applications runnning. Now that I have more time, I would like to separate Zimbra into its own VM on another server behind firewalls. I understand to do this I need to have split-DNS (which I already do have, for other purpose). But it seems I also need to install the MTA on ddi1-vm5 to route the incoming mail? It does not seem like this is very well documented.

So I tried to follow this instruction: http://www.zimbra.com/forums/adminis...u-12-04-a.html.

I first installed with
sudo ./install.sh -s --> install without configuring
sudo rm -rf /opt/zimbra --> to remove the software
rsync -avH ddi1-vm5:/opt/zimbra /opt
sudo ./install.sh
then it seems to hang trying to start mysql.
any ideas? Below is the log:
