"Sort of..." :P

It fully works afaict :D

Thanks again to the very helpful folks on freenode's Zimbra IRC channel. Without them I wouldn't have been able to make it work.

The original main issue seems to have been an issue with LDAP not being able to come back up. No idea if it was just because of the PID issue, or because my setup was on a chroot'd instance with other LDAP server running on another interface.

I do not know if there already is a safety check at the beginning to stop the upgrade process in case the LDAP server is not reachable.

Best regards

i was getting something like this when starting zimbra:

Code: Select all

57f00df9 daemon: bind(7) failed errno=99 (Cannot assign requested address)
57f00df9 slap_open_listener: failed on ldap://

i managed to resolve it because my server is on NAT with the public IP of isn't aliased on the server, thus i had to alias it using ifconfig eth1:0 netmask up so ldap see it on the main NIC (as it was 192.168.x.x IP on eth1) and LDAP started successfully

Just wanted to post this here in case someone else falls into the same situation and spends hours (like i did) without finding the solution :)

Check your hosts file for duplicate entries. That did the trick for me.
