Beta 2 Notes

Postby L. Mark Stone » Mon Jul 24, 2017 7:57 pm

Upgraded Beta 1 to Beta 2 OK; we are testing a three-server Zimbra farm comprised of:
- Server 1: Proxy + LDAP MMR
- Server 2: MTA + LDAP MMR
- Server 3: Mailbox + Logger

The Beta 2 upgrade reports its version as 8.8.0 GA.

After the upgrade completed, I got email warnings that the "Backup, and Backup Path not initialized", so I clicked the "initialize" button from the Admin Console and the Smart Scan completed OK. Maybe this could be done automatically by the installer? Or at least a note added to the Release Notes?

Our Beta 1 tweaks to obtain an A+ on the Qualys Labs SSL test survived the upgrade.

The emoticon thing is buggy; emoticons are displayed lots of places where they shouldn't be. I'd attach a screenshot but the Board quota has been reached, so picture posted here: https://www.reliablenetworks.com/wp-con ... conBug.png The picture is from the daily Backup report email.

Went to add a Secondary Volume as an Amazon S3 bucket in the Admin Console and got an error "ZeXtras Error. Directory /opt/zimbra/cache doesn't exist" so I did:

Code: Select all

root@mb5:/zcs/zcs-NETWORK-8.8.0_GA_1753.UBUNTU14_64.20170712141200# mkdir /opt/zimbra/cache
root@mb5:/zcs/zcs-NETWORK-8.8.0_GA_1753.UBUNTU14_64.20170712141200# chown zimbra.zimbra /opt/zimbra/cache
root@mb5:/zcs/zcs-NETWORK-8.8.0_GA_1753.UBUNTU14_64.20170712141200# chmod 755 /opt/zimbra/cache


and then I was able to click through to the next dialog box and successfully created an HSM store on an S3 Infrequent Access bucket (will report on S3 HSM testing later).

More to come!

Best regards to all,
Mark
