    Default Upgrading from 7.2.5 Debian 5 64bit to Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64bit 8.0.5

    How do I do it? The previous posts all had you install old version on new os and then do an upgrade. However, there is no 7.2.5 for Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64bit.

    You upgrade to Ubuntu 10.04 LTS 64bit, then upgrade to Zimbra 8.0.5 then do an OS upgrade to 12.04 LTS 64bit and then an upgrade to Zimbra 8.0.5 for Ubuntu 12.04

    The above is viable, but it leaves a lot of room for multiple points of failure.

    If I were facing the same situation, I would build Ubuntu 10 in parallel, install 7.25.
    Migrate a backup of currently running server to the Ubuntu 10.04 server and do a restore.
    Zimbra upgrade to 8.0.5 and backup at version level.

    Distro upgrading on production/high availability servers is a practice I will never choose to do, so I would opt for doing a clean install of Ubuntu 12.04 followed by a clean Zimbra version 8.0.5 for Ubuntu 12.04, proof that everything is good to go, then restore the Zimbra 8.0.5 backup from the Ubuntu 10 setup to the new Ubuntu 12 setup.

    This may equate to some added up front time, but should reduce debug time considerably and the potential headache that comes with it by removing OS/Zimbra version conflicts, hanging symlinks and/or permissions scenarios.

    The above method will allow you to follow the Zimbra supported Wiki's in this method. Moving Zimbra Servers, Upgrading Zimbra.
