Checking for ZCS Software Updates
When ZCS is installed, the ZCS software update utility is automatically configured to check for the latest ZCS version once a day and if there is an update to send notification to the address that is configured in the administration console’s Server Updates tab.
From this tab, you can configure the following:
*
Server that checks for updates. The pull-down tab lists all available servers. Only one server is configured. The selected server checks for updates and the result of the update response from www.zimbra.com is stored in LDAP.
*
Check for updates every x. The default is to check once a day. You can change the frequency interval to check every x hours, minutes, or seconds. A cron job is configured to check for new updates. If the frequency interval is less than 2 hours, the crontab file must be modified.
*
Updates URL. This address is the URL that the server connects to when checking for updates. When a ZCS server checks for updates, it transmits its version, platform, and build number to Zimbra. Normally, this URL is not changed.
*
To be notified of updates, check the Send notification email when updates are available and enter the send to and send from addresses. The default address is the administrator’s address.
*
When a server polls the URL specified, the response is displayed in the Updates tab.
