    Default Ubuntu 12.04 Hardware Enablement Stack (HWE) is going out of support

    I am running Ubuntu 12.04 with the Hardware Enablement Stack (HWE) as suggested to avoid performance problems (with LDAP?). Started receiving these messages recently:

    -------------
    Your current Hardware Enablement Stack (HWE) is going out of support
    on 08/07/14. After this date security updates for critical parts (kernel
    and graphics stack) of your system will no longer be available.

    For more information, please see:
    http://wiki.ubuntu.com/1204_HWE_EOL

    To upgrade to a supported (or longer supported) configuration:

    * Upgrade from Ubuntu 12.04 LTS to Ubuntu 14.04 LTS by running:
    sudo do-release-upgrade

    OR

    * Install a newer HWE version by running:
    sudo apt-get install linux-generic-lts-trusty linux-image-generic-lts-trusty

    and reboot your system.
    ------------------------

    Has anyone upgrade to the Trusty kernels with the 8.07 series? Any issues?

    I'm opening a support ticket with Zimbra on this; we are in the same situation with 8.0.7 ZCS.

    I have upgraded with the "apt-get install linux-generic-lts-trusty linux-image-generic-lts-trusty" route. Everything seems to be good, but it has been only about ~15 mins since the reboot to the new kernel.

    I opened a support ticket myself, where I got some assurance everything would work. I would have felt better going into this if it was documented as a tested and supported platform. Please do let me know how it goes for you.

    Support told me to wait for https://bugzilla.zimbra.com/show_bug.cgi?id=92383 before upgrading the kernel any further. This bug is due to be released as part of 8.0.8 according to pm.zimbra.com.

    How is your system running now, after a few days?

    All the best,
    Mark

    No problems so far, but that makes me angry that my support ticket got such a different answer than yours. I don't like being on the bleeding edge.
