ZCA Patching and Upgrades

Postby michaelsage » Sat Feb 12, 2011 2:53 am

Hi,
I hope I am posting this in the right place... I am curious as to how to patch the ZCA, should I just apply the normal Zimbra release patches? i.e use the wget to get the patch and then the install.sh file to install it?
Also how do I upgrade the appliance from version 6.x to version 7.0 or is it a total reinstall?
Thanks
Michael

The patching is supposed to be done through the last tab on the admin web page. There will be a special file set released that will contain all the binaries for upgrading from 6 to 7. Zimbra might be able to give us more info on the timeframe for this release.
The UPDATE tab goes and checks a repository at Zimbra for the file set and if present downloads all software needed for upgrade. I also believe that there will be an "offline" version of the file set available as there are options for alternative repositories.

What a muppet, I had totally missed the update tab....
Good news on the 6 to 7 upgrade.
Thanks
