If you use a dual-stack server then you should be aware that an IPv6 bug is not fixed on this build, there is a fix in bug report 108293.

Congrats! I am excited also. Happy to see the new cadence of releases. Backup and restore to a different OS or OS version is VERY great news! You just made my next OS upgrade easier, so thanks!!!

Not sure I understand from the release notes, it looks like shared mail and contacts folders will now be accessible from mobile. Will I be able to access other user's Calendars from Android & IOS devices with mobile sync now? (using paid NE).

Yea upgrade on Ubuntu is working well.

However is Universal UI not part of 8.8? or is it just not part of the FOSS version ?

Upgrade from 8.7.5 on ubuntu 16 went smoothly :-)
However, I now get the following error when logging into the web client: ???account.INVALID_ATTR_NAME???
Any ideas?

Hello Duddy,
Are you trying the DNS FQDN? Or just the IP? Any relevant information on the mailbox.log?

Best regards


Hi,

I found out what happened, it has nothing to do with the upgrade. We had modified the ldap structure to add a custom field and that change was overwritten (as exptected) during the upgrade.
