Reinstall on top of existing installation?

Since my OS update blew up and destroyed my Zimbra installation, I've determined that the only option to recover data May be to reinstall on top of the existing installation. The system is a mess. Folders and files are randomly missing from /opt/zimbra. Would I be able to get a clean installation by...

Re: Zimbra 9 - FOSS

I'm watching this thread with popcorn and sweat, waiting for the drama to unfold. ⋅ Are people gravitating toward the Zextras wonderful offering? ⋅ Does anyone have trust issues? Anyone else thinking the source of the Zextras package should be compared with that from Synacor? (Pr...

Re: Becoming Better

I am extremely happy to see a couple posts from staff - and recognize that no company commitments are implied. My notes from last year are still representative of my experience today. But I enthusiastically look forward to a complete revision next year. I have served in tech companies as a Developer...

Re: Recovering destroyed environment

@phoenix - your consultation is always appreciated. I had not seen that wiki, thanks. Wow, there are a lot of manual steps there for each option. But we do what we gotta do. I understand from that page that we need to import into the same ZCS version as the export. This makes sense. But to benefit f...

Re: Recovering destroyed environment

In any forum, when there is no response on a topic it usually means the questions weren't posed properly. I'll try to improve the quality of this thread... Thanks for your patience. 1) https://wiki.zimbra.com/wiki/UnInstalling_Zimbra_on_Linux is 5 years old. Is it still accurate? Can someone link to...

Ansible Virtualization of ZCS, static and dynamic assets

I'm configuring ZCS in an OpenStack environment. I already have a mini cloud with DreamHost (Ceph), equivalent to DigitalOcean and others. After installation of ZCS v9 I'd like to hard-link all folders that have dynamic data to a mounted file system over a dedicated hard drive volume. The static fil...

Recovering destroyed environment

I have a ZCS OSE 8.8.12 over Ubuntu 18. There are very few accounts, a few domains, all for personal use at the moment. A recent upgrade of that server to Ubuntu 20 failed, and my primary snapshot before the upgrade also failed (of course discovered afterward). After the upgrade, the /opt/zimbra fol...

Backscatter? MisConfiguration? Educational!

I received a "mail failure" email with the info below. I think someone might be sending mail with crafted headers. The receiving server, mail.ru, may not be checking it. So mail.ru sends a message back to me, where I'm like "I didn't send this...". I was originally thinking this ...

General Email Server Admin Forum?

If I have a question about general administration, not specific to Zimbra, I feel guilty asking it here. Given the lack of enthusiasm from Zimbra/Synacor, I know many people prefer to get their solutions elsewhere. But I don't know where people go when they leave here. :) I'm hoping folks will recom...

Re: Transferring PST File to Zimbra

Thank you very much @3dfx_nostalgic. That could be a magic bullet. I'd much prefer to use something that already exists, than to write my own. But MailStore Home looks almost too good to be true. I'm seriously concerned about security. I almost feel a need to lock down my firewall whenever anything ...
