    Question 4.5 upgrade woes on a mac server

    ----start of edit---
    *Note was originally in http://www.zimbra.com/forums/install...ng-zimbra.html
    So it is assumed you have not changed os's on the zimbra box.
    But this is a different person's upgrade; they had unbuntu, whereas you are on a mac server, so moved to this new thread.
    ---end of edit---

    I am on a Mac (10.4.9) and had 4.0.something running fine. Finally decided to take the plunge and upgrade to 4.5. Everything seemed normal, but after the upgrade, when I go to the admin page or a user signin page, I get the splash screen, but no login/password boxes.

    Not being one to fool around, I figured I would uninstall and just do a clean install of 4.5. Unfortunately, when I do that, the install script gives me this:

    G4-Server:/opt root# /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmsetup.pl
    Operations logged to /tmp/zmsetup.log.5104
    Checking java version...1.5 found
    Starting ldap...Done
    ERROR: service.FAILURE (system failure: getDirectContext) (cause: javax.naming.CommunicationException localhost:389)
    Setting defaults...Done
    Setting defaults from existing config...Warning: null valued key 'mysql_logger_root_password'
    Upgrading from to 4.5.5_GA_838
    Stopping zimbra services
    Stop failed - exiting
    UPGRADE FAILED - exiting
    G4-Server:/opt root#

    No clue what to do from here. Anyone know the magic?

    Thanks...

    Hi Justin,
    Welcome to the forums!

    Do a
    cat /etc/hosts

    Is there an entry for your host (besides localhost)? If not, please add it, and try again.

    Not quite sure what to do here. I am on a dynamic DNS setup, so anything I put in /etc/hosts with an explicit IP address is probably going to be bogus in a few days or weeks. The old version worked fine; is there something new going on here that I need to know about?

    It looks to me as if the uninstall didn't erase all vestiges of the old version, since the mpkg installer tells me that it is doing an upgrade, not a clean install. I didn't have any important data in the old installation; it was just a trial to see how things worked, so I can blow everything away with no backups or whatever. How do I totally clean house and start over with the new version?

    Thanks for your quick reply!

    4.5 is a lot more hosts file relient than previous versions.

    It doesn't matter if you have Natting going on or anything. You can always modify it at a later date if you need to.

    The hosts file need to be able to point your machine's hostname to a local/reachable ip address.

    OK, so I got my current IP address and put it in /etc/hosts as follows:

    65.35.107.38 harlow.homeip.net

    Is that the right way to do it?

    Thanks

    As long ad 65.35.107.38 is resolvable by the machine to point to itself (if that makes sense

    Your hosts file should say
    127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
    65.35.107.38 harlow.homeip.net harlow
