Hi there, im running 7.1.0 NE of zimbra, (on our production server, and test server) and ive got some customisations, like recipientmap changes in postfix
im using zimbra as a secondary internal server, which receives emails forwarded from our external mail server which is our mx record for our domain. The zimbra server has the domain "example.com" configured.
So an alias is setup for a user on the external server, and its set to forward to the internal zimbra server
(where zimbra.example.com is the hostname of the internal server)
so to get the zimbra server to accept emails forwarded to firstname.lastname@example.org, ive had to add the following configuration:
add zimbra.example.com to a "recipientmap" file in the postfix dir, and then enable it in the zimbra configuration. I do this by running the following:
echo "@zimbra.example.com.au @example.com.au" > /opt/zimbra/conf/postfix_recipientmap
postconf -e recipient_canonical_maps=hash:/opt/zimbra/conf/postfix_recipientmap
Now, it seems like when updating a new patch release from zimbra, these changes get blown away, and i have to re-run the last command to re-add the postfix configuration for the recipientmap file.
Is there a way around this? so i dont have to worry about loosing any custom configurations on upgrades? ive also got client certificate authentication working - which survived the update on the test server... it still remembered all the signed user certificates.. it looks like just the custom postfix configuration is removed on upgrade...
