Re: Zimbra Desktop Discontinued... Again?

As much as I love Zimbra Desktop, I would not use it with versions 8 or higher. There's a bug between the SOAP version that it uses and the one that Zimbra 8 or higher uses. The bug is that the desktop doesn't use existing soap sessions. Each request ends up spawning a new soap session. On a low vo...

Re: Life After Local Folders Go Away...

Here we use imapsync to periodically clone zimbra mailboxes across to a dovecot mailserver. You can then use archivemail to selectively delete mail from the source folders older that a specified number of days/weeks/months/years. We then access those archives using thunderbird as an imap client. Per...

Re: Zimbra desktop on ubuntu 16.04 64bit: install problem

I've had this a few times when the zdesktop task has died but Jetty keeps running.
I use "killall java" from the terminal to kill Jetty, then once it's dead running zdrun.pl works.

Of course if you are running any other java based apps that might end badly ;)

Linux x64 7.3.0 / 7.3.1 performance issue

G'day All, An odd one. I recently did a clean OS install of the latest Debian stable x64. I installed ZD 7.3.1 and got it running. That was (at the outset) very easy. Unfortunately I noticed that having ZD open prevented my screens from going to sleep (specifically ZD is waking the X server every 30...

Re: Upgrading Ubuntu from 1404 to 16.04

Device naming like that has nothing to do with the kernel. It's the new all encompassing swiss-army-init tool that renames them all. Personally, I find it repulsive, but I'm in the minority so I keep quiet and just don't use it. :) By the time 14.04LTS falls out of support I'll have figured out how ...

Re: Trouble with restore / restoring complete 8.7.1 server

Your issue with tar file size is the sparse ldap database and is well known. Plenty of info on the wiki and forums about how to back that up correctly. Your issue with not being offered an upgrade is you restored the contents of /opt/zimbra but as far as your distributions packaging system is concer...

Re: Installing proxy on existing mailstore...nginx won't start

netstat -tnpl will tell you which processes are listening to which ports. I'd suggest that you still have the zimbra mailbox listening on a port the proxy wants to use. Find out which port is still in use and which process is listening on it and we can look a little closer at the config to see what ...

Re: is zimbra-dnscache required for 8.7.1 operation? after upgrade, ZImbra won't autostart on reboot.

After you did a release-upgrade to 16.04 did you re-install zimbra using the 16.04 version?

Re: Using aws s2 sync to keep a repo up to date

G'day Jorge, Pretty much wherever it says "--no-sign-request --delete" it probably needs "--exact-timestamps". The reason I posted it in the forum was to field comment. Maybe I'm the only one actually using this, or for some reason I'm the only one being affected. I do know it ha...

Using aws s2 sync to keep a repo up to date

Just discovered a solution to a problem that has been driving me nuts. I keep an Ubuntu repository locally based on the instructions on this Wiki page : https://wiki.zimbra.com/wiki/Zimbra_Collaboration_repository This works, but after the repo gets modified I get constant issues with these errors e...
