    I notice that before upgrade, zmcontrol -v says nothing about FOSS, but after upgrade FOSS is specified. Is it possible that I run on an expired trial licence, and now try to upgrade to FOSS. Are these incompatible? I think I have used the FOSS version when upgrading in the past.

    Before upgrade:
    zimbra@mail2:~$ zmcontrol -v


    Release 5.0.14_GA_2850.DEBIAN4.0 DEBIAN4.0
    After upgrade:
    zimbra@mail2:~$ zmcontrol -v


    Release 6.0.7_GA_2473.DEBIAN4.0 DEBIAN4.0 FOSS edition.

    Your hosts file is incorrect, the following line:

    Code:
    127.0.0.1 localhost.platinium.no localhost
    should be like this:

    Code:
    127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
    I also asked you to run the following command:

    Code:
    host `hostname`
    You should run that command as-is without changing anything or entering your hostname etc. and using backticks surrounding the word `hostname`.

    According to those dig results you appear to have no A or MX records on that DNS server, so I'm confused as to how this server has been previously delivering mail to the accounts.

    Sorry.

    mail2:~# host `hostname`
    mail2.platinium.no has address 192.168.0.9
    mail2.platinium.no mail is handled by 10 mail2.platinium.no.

    I agree. it is a little confusing. I remember reading something about this when installing Zimbra for the first time. Now i can only find this, that apply, since we use an mx relay.
    You must configure a relay host if you do not enable DNS. After ZCS is
    installed, go to the Global Settings>MTA tab on the administration console and
    uncheck Enable DNS lookups. Enter the relay MTA address to use for external
    delivery.
    All mail is sent to our virus/spam washer according to the public mx record. They in turn do a domain lookup, that points to our public ip, where we have a firewall with a destination NAT sending all traffic on port 25 to this internal IP

    Just for the record. I have now rolled back to the snapshot with the same settings as described above. Everything is running smoothly, with mail going in and out normally. I have to try the upgrade again later.

    When I first installed Zimbra, I found a section in the doc describing DNS setup and MX setup for my scenario, where the server runs in a domain different than the mail domains that are serviced. I will see if I can find this doc again. However, my hunch says that it's SQL problems that is in the way of my upgrade. I'll be back! ;-)

    That's not correct, you need a Split DNS set-up when you are behind a NAT router (or firewall) on a private IP address. - it's to facilitate the delivery of mail by Postfix (it's a Postfix requirement) doing a DNS lookup for the server.
