I was trying to do an upgrade based on http://files.zimbra.com/website/docs...se%20Notes.pdf, but the instructions are really because I have no idea what step 2 is for. My guess was that the perl script is only available in 4.5.11, so I have to download a 376M tarball just to get a 1K script. However, the script was nowhere to be found in 4.5.11, neither was it found in 5.0.10. Anyone knows the working instructions for the upgrade?
[install]$ find zcs -name migratePreWidenSizeColumns.pl -ls
[install]$ find zcs-NETWORK-5.0.10_GA_2638.RHEL4_64.20081003025447 -name migratePreWidenSizeColumns.pl -ls
Upgrading from 4.5.7 through 4.5.10 (this is what we hav now) to 5.0.x
Important: Only ZCS systems at 4.5.7 or later can upgrade directly to 5.0.x. If you are running a version earlier than 4.5.7, you must first upgrade from 4.5.x to 4.5.11 before you upgrade to 5.0.x.
If you are upgrading from 4.5.7 through 4.5.10 to 5.0.x the process to prepare and then upgrade would be as follows. Doing step 4 before you upgrade will shorten the actual time it takes to upgrade.
1. If you have LDAP Replication Servers, you must modify each LDAP replica server before you upgrade the LDAP master server. See the instructions at “LDAP Replication Servers” on page 27. If you do not have LDAP replica servers, continue with step 2.
2. Download ZCS 4.5.11.
3. Download 5.0.x.
4. Run the migratePreWidenSizeColumns.pl to shorten the time it takes to upgrade. (optional)
5. Upgrade to 5.0.x. Note: If you do not run migratePreWidenSizeColumns.pl, the script is automatically run during the upgrade to 5.0.x.
