    Default Removing my db dir (symlink) during upgrading to 6.04

    Hi all from Ukraine!

    I'm tryed to upgrade zimbra from 6.02 to 6.04.
    I have /opt/zimbra/db directory as symlink to dir /mnt/RAID10/zimbra/db.

    When I stert upgrading - zimbra do removing my symlink and create default db dir from package.
    So, during upgrading I got

    Thu Jan 14 00:28:19 2010 *** Running as zimbra user: /opt/zimbra/bin/mysql.serve r start
    Starting mysqld...done.
    Thu Jan 14 00:28:31 2010 *** Running as zimbra user: /opt/zimbra/bin/mysql.serve r start
    Starting mysqld...done.
    Thu Jan 14 00:28:42 2010 *** Running as zimbra user: /opt/zimbra/bin/mysql.serve r start
    Starting mysqld...done.
    Thu Jan 14 00:28:53 2010 *** Running as zimbra user: /opt/zimbra/bin/mysql.serve r start
    Starting mysqld...done.
    Thu Jan 14 00:29:04 2010 *** Running as zimbra user: /opt/zimbra/bin/mysql.serve r start
    Starting mysqld...done.
    Thu Jan 14 00:29:16 2010 *** Running as zimbra user: /opt/zimbra/bin/mysql.serve r start
    Starting mysqld...done.
    I need to cancel installing process and restart with delete default dir in realtime and recreate symlink to real place of my mysql db.

    I think it is a BIG BUG!!!!

    sorry for my english

    Default

    So, now I upgrading 6.0.4 to 6.0.6.
    install.sh script still do removing my symlink to /mnt/RAID10/zimbra/db from /opt/zimbra and re-crate /opt/zimbra/db dir with defaults files - not my.

    Why?

    Default

    instead of using a symlink you should use a bind mount
