I have an old installation that I am trying to upgrade. I have Ubuntu 8.04 64bit and tried running the upgrade to both 6.x and 7.1.14 Both failed and hang at the starting mysql. I am working on a VMWare server so rolling back was quick and easy. My plan it to upgrade the install to 7.x then migrate to the appliance running on 8.x but I can't get off the ground.

The 7.1.14 file was zcs-NETWORK-7.1.4_GA_2555.UBUNTU8_64.20120105094735


This is what the log showed

That last line repeats lots.

I then tried to start zimbra on its own using zmcontrol and ldap failed with an error about ldap, but my nslookups are correct and displayed below
