    Default Upgrading Zimbra

    How do we go about upgrading Zimbra, after it's installed?

    read the release notes for the version you wish to upgrade to, it will have instructions as well as caveats in them.

    Ok, thanks. I don't want to create another thread so I'll just ask here. We are transferring our email accounts from our current email server over to Zimbra this week. We want to do this through a file. I've read the Bulk Provisioning article in the Wiki, but I'm still a little vague on the details.

    Say if I want to create a list of email accounts to have Zimbra create the accounts automatically from the file I've created, how do I go about this. Also, if I want to include quotas inside the list, how would it work?

    I know it should look something like this, but how can I also include quota?

    "createAccount admin@domain.com password displayName 'Admin' givenName Admin"

    Also, where it says password, do I just type the password there, or do I do password password?

    if you set a quota for your deault cos, then all users created will inherit that quota automatically.

    if you create a new cos just for these users you are batch importing and assign the quota to that, then you need to add a 2nd command to the batch import for each user that says

    setAccountCos <account> <cos name>

    and now you don't do password password, just replace the word password with the password for the user

    If I want to manually do this in one list, how can I go about that instead of creating a COS, and then creating different lists for the accounts that need to go under a different COS?

    So, using the same example:
    "createAccount admin@domain.com password displayName 'Admin' givenName Admin"

    If I wanted to add a mail quota to that particular line in the list, how would I do that? I'm just reading through the manual, and I don't see anything that lets you do this.

    you can't do it in the same line. you can do it on a per-account basis though you'd have to have a 2nd line that says

    modifyAccount admin@domain.com zimbraMailQuota=5000

    So, in the list I'm creating can I just add that line after each account, or should I just create a seperate list with mailquota commands for each email account?

    6 of one, half dozen of another. the quota will get set wether you do it in the same script or in a second one later.

    Thank you very much for your help bdial.

    EDIT: One last thing, by default are mail quotas unlimited?

    I've created my list and it's called accounts.txt. I read somewhere that when I want to run it, I do this command:

    zmprov < accounts.txt

    and it should create the accounts inside the file. Is this correct?
