Re: When to use Multi vs Single?

I'd keep it simple and start with a single server, then add more mailbox servers as you need them. If anything, I might stick a mta/proxy in front those mailbox servers.

Re: Ubuntu upgrade with zcs installed

Yes, always do a clean install of the OS. The Zextras tool is definitely recommended for this.

Re: Peer review for backup plan

Here's the way I do it. I've tested a restore copying the data.mdb back manually after doing an rsync and it works perfectly.

Code: Select all

/opt/zimbra/common/bin/mdb_copy /opt/zimbra/data/ldap/mdb/db /backup/directory
rsync -avHK --delete --exclude 'data.mdb' /opt/zimbra /backup/directory/

Re: ZCS 8.8.9 : CentOS to Ubuntu

I've ran Zimbra on both over the years and never had a problem with either OS. I'm with Bill; I wouldn't bother migrating just for the sake of standardizing. But if it's really, really, really bugging the crap out of you, I'd use the 30 day trial of Zextras Suite and export a backup, then import it ...

Re: upgrade from ubuntu 12.04 to ubuntu 16.04

Only other thing I can think of is make sure apparmor is disabled/removed and check permissions. I've never had issues doing this kind of upgrade.

Re: upgrade from ubuntu 12.04 to ubuntu 16.04

Ok, good. When you first installed 8.7.1 on 16.04, did you use the -s option on install.sh, delete the resulting /opt/zimbra directory, restore your /opt/zimbra directory and run install.sh in normal mode?

Re: upgrade from ubuntu 12.04 to ubuntu 16.04

What was your upgrade process? Did you run do-release-upgrade or clean install of 16.04?

Re: Reset Configuration

You could try installing the 30-day trial of the Zextras suite and export a backup, then import back into a fresh install of Zimbra. Please test this out on a spare server before trying on production server though.
