    Default Disaster Recovery

    Hi,

    I've been helping a client to recover their zimbra server after their primary HDD failed. Luckily their Data Drive where Zimbra was stored is intact as there are no Backups!!

    I've removed the faulty HDD and re-installed the system with the same software and versions.

    Ubuntu 6.06 LTS and downloaded ZCS-OSS-6.0.6 2330

    I've followed the moving ZCS to another server » Zimbra :: Blog

    Including updating UID and GID. I've kept architecture the same, even though it was originally installed incorrectly as i386 on 64 Bit Hardware by previous contractors.

    When re-running the install.sh it fails with

    Wed Feb 16 15:09:32 2011 *** Running as zimbra user: /opt/zimbra/bin/mysql.server start
    starting mysqld...done
    Web Feb 16 15:09:42 2011 done.
    Wed Feb 16 15:09:42 2011 I can't upgrade version
    Wed Feb 16 15:09:43 2011 UPGRADE FAILED - exiting

    This is after going through most of the process, I can't get much more detail than that I'm afraid. I'm also unable to login to the running zimbra server web interface that has been moved back to /opt/zimbra even though it seems to startup fine..

    Any suggestions appreciated :-)

    Are you certain that's the original version of Zimbra that was installed on the server? If it is, does this thread help: https://www.zimbra.com/forums/admini...ng-thread.html

    Default Pretty Sure

    cat .install_history

    INSTALLED zimbra-spell_5.0.5_GA_2201.UBUNTU6_i386.deb...
    ...
    UPGRADED zimbra-spell_6.0.6_GA_2330.UBUNTU6_i386.deb...
    ...

    So I think I'm on the right track, the link you provided isn't helpful, Zimbra install.sh is detecting the versions and trying to upgrade from 6.0.6 to 6.0.6 which seems about right, but still stuck on error as per original post. Thanks for the help though )
