    Default From 4.5.9ubuntu on debian 4.0 upgrade to 5.0

    hi all,

    we have a zimbra 4.5.9-ubuntu (os version) running smoothly on debian 4.0.
    ( it was a 4.5.6-ubuntu running on ubuntu-6.0.6, migrated then to debian 4.0 and successfully updated to 4.5.9 )

    now we need to upgrade to 5.0.4 ( on the same server with debian 4.0 )

    what is the best way to do it:
    - trying to stay with ubuntu-versions ?
    - trying to go to 4.5.11-ubuntu and switch over to 4.5.11-debian4 ?
    - ??

    thanks for hints

    anton

    Sorry, I mis-read your post and answered wrong the first time.

    If I understand you correctly and you're running currently on Debian, the fact that the old install was Ubuntu binaries (but still on a Debian server) shouldn't matter. Just use the Debian binaries to do your upgrade.

    thank you for replying.

    in the meantime i upgraded to 5.0.4-ubuntu and afterwards i applied 5.0.4-debian.

    these were the steps:

    1)backup /opt/zimbra - one never knows
    2)upgrade to 5.04 ubuntu
    # tar -xvzf zcs-5.0.4_GA_2101.UBUNTU6.20080321150617.tgz
    # cd zcs-5.0.4_GA_2101.UBUNTU6.20080321150617
    # apt-get install libltdl3
    # ./install.sh
    --- a warning regarding perl-package ( 5.8.8 instead of 5.8.7 )
    --- upgrade completed without errors

    3)adjusting certificates:
    ( [SOLVED] self-signed cert in 5.02_GA failed and instructions in "Release Notes for Zimbra™ Collaboration Suite 5.0.4 Open Source Edition" - 2 changes: i had to do it as root and not with sudo; i had to do "deploycrt self" without adding "-new" )
    # cd /opt/zimbra/ssl/zimbra/ca/
    # mv zmssl.cnf /opt
    # /opt/zimbra/bin/zmcertmgr createca -new
    # /opt/zimbra/bin/zmcertmgr deployca
    # /opt/zimbra/bin/zmcertmgr deploycrt self

    4)backup again - one never knows
    5)switch to debian 5.0.4.
    # cd
    # tar -xvzf zcs-5.0.4_GA_2101.DEBIAN4.0.20080321134307.tgz
    # cd zcs-5.0.4_GA_2101.DEBIAN4.0.20080321134307
    # ./install.sh --platform-override
    -- warning about perl package and different platform
    -- completed without problems

    6) To activate instant messaging:

    # su - zimbra
    $ zmprov -l -v mcf zimbraXMPPEnabled TRUE
    $ zmprov -v mc default zimbraFeatureIMEnabled TRUE
    $ zmprov -v mc default zimbraFeatureInstantNotify TRUE
    $ zmcontrol stop
    $ zmcontrol start

    After 24 hours everything looks good, just like "solved" ;-)

    Long life to zimbra and it's community !

    You're a wise man. . .

    Glad it worked!
