    Default zmmailboxdctl is not running

    Hi all. I am using ubuntu 10.4 lts 64-bit
    I am currently running ZCS 6.08. 32bit
    I am trying to convert to ZCS 7.1.1 64
    I followed the directions Network Edition: Moving from 32-bit to 64-bit Server - Zimbra :: Wiki It looked like I got it transferred to the new server.
    But I get zmmailboxdctl is not running
    I do not have this in production yet because I want to use the same name and IP as the old server
    So Installed and configured bind, resolv.conf, host, hostname, interfaces
    I checked my dig domain mx dig domain any --these appear correct
    host `hostname` does not come back correctly but I am at a loss what to configure to make this work. And I am not even sure that is my problem but I can start there.

    Default dnsmasq

    I removed bind and installed dsnmasq, this fixed my host `hostname` problem
    but zmmailboxdctl still does not start

    Default zmconfigd not running ... try this

    I went through something similiar

    try reading through this thread and see if anything here helps

    [SOLVED] zmconfigd is not running.

    essentially the long and the short of that thread was to ensure that if you have this issue make sure netcat (/usr/bin/nc) is installed.

    Cheers

    Default still not functioning

    I am finding errors all over now
    Now I find an error about my DB version, says ours "65" from "64"
    I installed nc, I installed the patch also

    I am wondering if I just copied the whole 32-bit installation over to the 64-bit server and did an upgrade if that would work???

    No, it wouldn't work - you need to follow the 32bit to 64bit migration article in the wiki and with the DB version error you'll most likely hit the same problem. Search the forums for a 'hack' to fix the DB version problem.

    Default I did, but it made no sense

    I read the hack but it left me feeling confused and needing a lobotomy
    Could that error be the issue?
    And I followed step by step the upgrade wiki.
    I verified the system worked before I migrated my data, I was able to log into the admin console....
    My issue right now is that I am not able to pin point where the problem is, that is, did I mess up the xml, is the database corrupt?

    I reinstalled and now I see a migration tool but unfortunately it is asking some questions I am not sure where to find

    is there somewhere I can look to find this stuff?

    Default Gave up

    I could not make the new server work...
    I just reset all users passwords recreated the same accounts on the new server then used imapsync
    Probably better then dragging legacy stuff with me anyhow
