    Default 6.0.10 -> 7.0.1 (Centos5.5_x64) Nice n' easy

    Upgraded last night from 6.0.10 to 7.0.1 - CentOS 5.5 x64

    Very smooth upgrade for me. 15 mailboxes. Mix of small (less than 20mb) and large (including 1.5GB, 1.3GB, 750MB, 500MB, 500MB)

    FYI - I ran the pearl script to update the mysql tables immediately after the upgrade completed. It took 75 seconds for my install.

    Read the release notes ...

    On Page 17 it states
    After the Upgrade is complete
    After you completed the upgrade to 7.0, the following bullet items may need to
    be addressed.
    • MySQL table upgrade is required after upgrading to ZCS 7.0. MySQL table
    upgrades are not automatically run during the upgrade to 7.0 based on time
    that it takes this process to run. There are no known performance impacts
    of running in production without doing this MySQL table upgrade.
    Customers can avoid these errors in the zmdbintegrityreport output by
    executing /opt/zimbra/libexec/scripts/migrate20100913-Mysql51.pl
    For a 4000 mailbox, 250 MB mailbox size, the script could take about 70
    minutes to run. Customers should schedule their maintenance window
    accordingly. (Bug 24329, 50557)

    Was the server down during the execution of perl script?

    I ran it with zimbra up. I couldn't find any documentation that suggested zimbra needed to be down and even the zimbra upgrade script runs correctly if zimbra is up (by shutting it down when appropriate). Also, it obviously needs to have mysql up and running - so I just went ahead and ran it immediately after the install finished.

    Perhaps one of the moderators will chime in with an official answer.
