but now, oddly, if i log on as zimbra, into the /opt/zimbra/ folder and i do zmcontrol -v (or even /opt/zimbra/bin/zmcontrol -v) here's what i get:
even if, actually, i'm running v5.0x...
Release 6.0.8_GA_2661.MACOSXx86, Zimbra, Inc.
MACOSXx86 FOSS edition
it SHOULD be zcs-5.0.18_GA_3011.MACOSXx86.20090707154642, which is the last installer appl i can see in my document folder, even if i've upgraded it perhaps to 5.0.24, but i can't remeber now...
in /opt there is still the zimbra v6.08 installation folder (which i renamed "zimbra6"), but the "zimbra" running is for sure the previous version, which keeps on running like a charm, by the way. web UI including.
anyway, i can answer to your questions:
yes. since Zimbra 4, if my memory doesn't fail.
I assume you are using HTTPS
to access the Admin UI?
looking at zimbra 6 logs folder, all the httpd logs are empty, except for the following lines, i found into the httpd_error.log registered just after having completed the installation (looking at its creation date)
Do you see any errors in the log files
when you try to access the Admin UI?
tomcat logs are pretty old (from 2008 and 2009), probably related to the old ZCS 4?

all running well. the status is "running" for every process. and, for the 2 days i kept ZCM 6.0.8 on, we were able to send/receive mail, using either client or webmail interface
Are all the services running (post the output of 'zmcontrol status')?
running well, as stated before.
Is the normal Web UI working for the users?
sure. there's a sw firewall running on the server plus a hw firewall between it and the internet. but i never got this kind of issue before (from ZCS 4 till now). more over: i have all ports open, for connections inside the 10.0.0.0/24 class ip my server and my admin computer are.
Is there a firewall on this server?
anyway, if i remember well, during the 2 days-test i tried to switch the sw firewall off too, with no luck, of course.
about the error: zmsetup.pl script told me the ldap schema was corrupted/altered. it sounds odd to me, 'cause in the past i used the altermime/disclaimer extension, but i'm pretty sure i deactivated it after a few weeks and updated zimbra, restoring a schema back-up. therefore the schemas had to be the original ones.
What were the errors you had during the upgrade and how did you solve it?
anyway, i did that again this time too: i restored an old schema backup, followed the instruction found in the blog about rebuilding the ldap schema and i rerun the zmsetup.pl, which completed the installation successfully.
of course i did. (i'm a long-time forums user ). that's the reason i wrote: "i'm alone...".
Did you search the forums to see if there is any other posts with this problem or solution?
actually, i hoped that was a 6.08 issue (i installed it a few days/hours after it was released), too young to be shared among enough people. now that's not the case, it seems.
but, as i said, the error comes from zimbra itself, therefore i thought it was documented. but it is not, it seems...
