I believe, it's the usual way of running install.sh. It's written in detail in the release notes.

Hi Reymund,

I've never use ZeXtras in my life, you need to ask in their Forums about the compatibility. You can upgrade from 8.5 to 8.6 without migrate any account, just and upgrade.

Hi Reymund,


Please, could you write in the Migration Forum and tell us:



  • The result of your zmcontrol -v

  • Your actual OS and number of users

  • The target OS
