I upgraded Zimbra OpenSource from 3.1.x to 4.0.3 on a Suse 9.3 system.
In the upgrade process I got two very serious error messages, but after first panic they could solved very easily.
The first problem was the message:
You appear to be installing packages on a platform different
than the platform for which they were built
This platform is UNKNOWN
Packages found: zimbra-core-4.0.3_GA_406.SuSEES9-20061016141055.i386.rpm
This may or may not work
Sleeping one night and I did it anyway - and it works!!
The second problem was after a long working of the upgrade process the message:
Fri Oct 20 19:14:26 2006: Migrating ldap data
Fri Oct 20 19:14:36 2006: Checking ldap status
Fri Oct 20 19:14:37 2006: Starting ldap
Fri Oct 20 19:14:44 2006: ldap startup failed with exit code 1
UPGRADE FAILED - exiting
Uuups - frustrated - ....
Why not try as zimbra user the command "zmcontrol start" ?
The next error message come up:
sudo: /etc/sudoers is mode 0440, should be 0640
ERROR - failed to start slapd
Uuups - what - yes - change mode of /etc/sudoers to 0640 - zmcontrol start
Every thing works perfect !!!!
