    Default OS 4.5.6 upgrade to 5.0.2 mta password error

    I am asked for a "password" when I try to start the mta process.
    I have no idea what the password is or where to find it.

    Thanks

    Check the /etc/sudoers file, look for the postfix entry and ensure that it's there and that the path to postfix is correct.

    How does this look?


    /etc/sudoers
    %zimbra ALL=NOPASSWD:/opt/zimbra/openldap/libexec/slapd
    %zimbra ALL=NOPASSWD:/opt/zimbra/libexec/zmslapd
    %zimbra ALL=NOPASSWD:/opt/zimbra/postfix-2.4.3.4z/sbin/postfix, /opt/zimbra/po stfix-2.4.3.4z/sbin/postalias, /opt/zimbra/postfix-2.4.3.4z/sbin/qshape.pl, /opt /zimbra/postfix-2.4.3.4z/sbin/postconf,/opt/zimbra/postfix-2.4.3.4z/sbin/postsup er
    %zimbra ALL=NOPASSWD:/opt/zimbra/libexec/zmqstat,/opt/zimbra/libexec/zmmtastat us

    %zimbra ALL=NOPASSWD:/opt/zimbra/bin/zmcertmgr
    %zimbra ALL=NOPASSWD:/opt/zimbra/nginx/sbin/nginx
    It looks like its there.

    [zimbra@mail sbin]$ ls -al /opt/zimbra/postfix-2.4.3.4z/sbin/postfix
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 287663 Jan 25 10:35 /opt/zimbra/postfix-2.4.3.4z/sbin/postfix

    Something looks wrong here, the log shows it's trying to execute postfix-2.2.9, but the sudoers file is assigning rights to postfix-2.4.3.4z.

    I've had the same problem when dealing with a dodgy upgrade, but you have the postfix folder that sudoers is looking for. I guess you could duplicate the line and change the path so it has rights for both, but that wont deal with the underlying issue.

    I dont have the final answer I'm afraid; stick around, I'm sure someone will come up with something.

    You should revert to your backup if youve not already done so.

    Thanks Dirk.

    I gotta love vmware.
    All I did was copy the zimbra vmware image and tried the update on the copy.
    Without success and turned the old copy of zimbra back on.

    I still have the old version to refer too for log files etc.

    Luck y I have 20G of space on my vmware server to copy the zimbra image.
    Next step will be to use rsync and replicate the zimbra vmware to another server.

    Cheers
    Chris

    Dirk to your comment:

    The upgrade tries to use postfix-2.2.9 and it looks like it should try to use postfix-2.4.3.4z.
