[SOLVED] Problems with upgrade from 8.0.1 version - asks to install zimbra-mta

Postby arnisraido » Sat Jan 11, 2014 4:06 pm

Yesterday I did upgrade from 8.0.1 to 8.0.6 Zimbra Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit version, but I had few problems. After upgrade, messages were nor delivered, nor received. With reject message from Postfix.
After problems, I have restored to snapshot, and LIVE server is up and running 8.0.1. But I havecreated a clone for test upgrades.
So, the first thing: when I start ./install.sh, it asks for upgrade, and then - asks again to install zimbra-mta.

MTA _IS_ installed already, and this would be required to upgrade it, not install as fresh service, am I right?
Checking for prerequisites...

The Zimbra Collaboration Server appears already to be installed.

It can be upgraded with no effect on existing accounts,

or the current installation can be completely removed prior

to installation for a clean install.

Select the packages to install

Upgrading zimbra-core

Upgrading zimbra-ldap

Upgrading zimbra-logger
Install zimbra-mta [N]

In fact - I had few problems with 8.0.1 before, where I was forced to restore few folders from backup, but do not remembre, probably postfix also.

It would be the best - to install fresh 8.0.1 on new server, and move message and user store to new server, but I did not found good tutorial for 8th version. Does anyone has materials for that?

dpkg -s zimbra-mta
did not found installed package (this is the same command install.sh ir running to determine installed packages).
I decided to fix installation, based on forum [SOLVED] Upgrade Problem: zimbra-core...NOT FOUND : Release package zimbra-core is no
0. MAKE FULL BACKUP. MAKE SNAPSHOT OR anything to be sure, if something goes wrong!!!
1. stop all services

su - zimbra

zmcontrol stop

2. rename old zimbra

mv /opt/zimbra /opt/zimbra_bak

3. install the same Zimbra version (in my case - 8.0.1) with "-s" switch (will install only software packages)

and choose NOT TO UPGRADE, but install fresh version. It will show, that all mails/users will be deleted!

./install.sh -s

4. check, if all services are stopped

su - zimbra

zmcontrol stop

5. rename new version (or delete if You wish)

mv /opt/zimbra /opt/zimbra_new

6. Now, run latest installation script, 8.0.6 in my case, with normal "./install.sh"

Installation script now correctly recognizes, that zimbra-mta is installed.

Now choose to upgrade!
Everything went well. It took time to recognize, that all services are running in WEB ADMIN GUI, but in command line everything worked as expected.
