Build 1593 Broke My Linux Install
I've been running Zimbra Desktop for a while now on my Linux desktop without any major problems. This morning when I launched it I got a message telling me there was an update available. After the update was downloaded and installed when the Desktop was launched I got the following error:
After the first time I got the message I restarted my system, but the same error came up when I tried to run the program. Next, I manually downloaded ZD from the Zimbra web-site and re-installed. Unfortunately this did not correct the problem either.
Couldn't access Yahoo! Zimbra Desktop server. If issue persists after reinstall, please check logs for errors and report to http://www.zimbra.com/forums/zimbra-desktop.
The zdesktop daemon appears to be running fine. As a troubleshooting step I stopped the service, cleared the log directory, and restarted. I now have three files in the log directory: derby.log, zdesktop.log, and zdesktop.out. None of these log files appear to have any error messages in them; just INFO and DEBUG messages.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
build 1593 not working-where to get older build?
same for me. mac os x. just upgraded zimbra desktop build 1593 after the message (i am not in any beta program). broken!
to get back to work, where can i download the older build that just worked?
solved: build 1593 upgrade
ok, here is how it worked for me and maybe i am not alone:
- downgrade to build 1537 (that version worked for be until today) was either not working. same error messages.
- i remembered that due to a security advisory for os x back in april i disabled java in both safari and firefox AND in os x java settings changed the j2se sequence (1.4.2 first and 5.0 last).
- after changing that back, enabling java in both browsers and rebooting, install of both zdesktop version went fine and zdesktop build 1593 is working now.
now i don't know which part of this solved the problem but maybe you can get something out of this.
the only part i am wondering is:
if zdesktop relies on the java version/setting, why did build 1537 work fine for me until today even with the downgraded/disabled java settings?
