    Default Java for Mac OS X Update breaks Mailboxd

    If you apply either of the following two Apple updates, mailboxd will not start:
    Java for Mac OS X 10.6 Update 1 - Java for Mac OS X 10.6 Update 1
    Java for Mac OS X 10.5 Update 6 - Java for Mac OS X 10.5 Update 6

    See:
    Re: Can't access cacerts keystore after Java Update 1

    This update replaces the Java cacerts file and changes the password from changeit to changeme. The file is:
    /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Resources/Deploy.bundle/Contents/Home/lib/security/cacerts

    Zimbra references this file as:
    /opt/zimbra/java/lib/security/cacerts

    There are two methods you can use to avoid problems: change the cacerts password back to the old value; change Zimbra to use the new password. The key question is whether Apple is going to change the password back in the future. In the discussion above, the Apple engineer suggests that people submit bug requests to have the password changed back.

    If you believe that Apple will change the password back to changeit, here is what you should do:

    1) zmcontrol stop
    2) apply Java update
    3) reboot
    4) sudo keytool -storepasswd -new changeit -keystore /opt/zimbra/java/lib/security/cacerts -storepass changeme

    If you believe that Apple will leave the password as changeme, here is what you should do:

    1) zmcontrol stop
    2) zmlocalconfig -e mailboxd_truststore_password=changeme
    3) apply Java update
    4) reboot

    This is in bugzilla as Bug 43197 – Upgrading Java fails mailbox.

    I inserted a link back to this thread for completeness. Thanks for posting this.

    This should be in the release notes.

    This has happened again Java for Mac OS X 10.5 Update 7. Reversing the instructions (since I went with the latter option) did the trick.
