    Default Planning an upgrade from 5.0.21 to 6.0.10

    Beyond the Release Notes, are there more things I need to do or to be concerned about for all the additional tweeks like:

    pyzor, razor2, DCC, spamassassin (72_active.cf bug fix), SPF, and friends?

    It's been a while since I upgraded, and I cannot remember everything that was done. The upgrade process should preserve the configuration files, but are there other things that might just go away quietly?

    The upgrade will only preserve it's own configuration, anything you've changed will not be incorporated in the upgrade.

    But if the changes I made were to zimbra configs, wouldn't they be preserved?

    If you mean any changes to Zimbra configuration files then no, they are not preserved.

    OK, I am confused. The release notes say that during the upgrade steps:

    6. When The system will be modified. Continue? [N] is displayed, type Y and
    press Enter. The Zimbra server is stopped, and the older packages are
    removed. The upgrade process verifies which version of ZCS is being run
    and proceeds to upgrade the services, restores the existing configuration
    files, and restarts the server. If you have a configuration with a large
    number of accounts created, this can take a while.
    Although, there is this warning in:
    Improving Anti-spam system - Zimbra :: Wiki

    about "salocal.cf.in" that Zimbra replaces this file on every upgrade.

    So, some of the existing Zimbra configuration files are preserved. Or not?

    Surely I've already answered this, if you have modified any configuration files you will need to make those modifications again - they are not preserved during an upgrade. There's comments in the forums to the same effect.
