    My appologies. I thought that you as a moderator represented Zimbra.

    That's OK, no need to apologise. Nobody that answer posts on these forums (even staff) represents Zimbra except in official announcements and posting on these forums is voluntary, all opinions belong to the person posting and are not official Zimbra (or VMware) statements.

    What problems did you run into moving from 7.1.1 to 7.2? We're planning on making that move in the near future and your experience might prove useful in helping us dodge a bullet.

    I dont have my notes with the errors here with me - but it crashed and burned and died in the middle of the upgrade when jumping from 7.1.1 to 7.2. I could not find a simple way to recover. Maybe it was something I was doing wrong, maybe there is some little gremlin hiding in there. So I made a stab at putting in the interrum step of going to 7.1.3 - then 7.2 and I was successful. So I did not burn myself - I built test servers and upgraded them first to find a way to successfully update. On a side note I also upgraded the OS at the same time so that might have contributed to my problem. Dont know. I do know that when I figured out how to do it, I did it 3 times in a row on the test servers and had no problems before I did it on my production server.

    I posted my upgrade procedure here: Successful Upgrade of Zimbra 7.1.1 and Centos 5.6 to Zimbra 7.2 and Centos 6.2

    Hope that helps you!

    Thank you for the quick response. I'll look over your procedure and take it into account while we're wrapping up our testing.

    Bug 73440: ZCO not automatically sync'ing - have to manually sync

    How this stuff makes it past QA is beyond me. It's like those people who post "How Tos" who've obviously never tried to use their own instructions. Very glad I've not updated to 7.2 now ! I'll probably update ~2 weeks after the patch for this is released.
    The updated ZCO client has been in the support portal downloads for a few weeks now.

    And I don't believe it was a QA issue. I think it was a decision they took to align it with outlook send/receive settings, which when sitting around a table sounds like a great idea, but in reality caused issues. My gripe with it was they didn't have it documented.

    Fyi:
    If you wanna an upgrade to ZCO 7.2.1, you have to download the msi and then upload on the Zimbra Server.
    Run following command:

    su - zimbra -c /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmupdatezco /pathto/ZimbraConnectorOLK_7.2.1.520_x86.msi

    So the update of the outlook clients run automatically!

    Thanks for that, I have a number of users who won't update manually. They either complain about problems and then ignore emails containing the fix or they're too scared to click twice on the attachment.

    I had serious problems upgrading 64 bit Centos 5.8 from 7.1.4 to 7.2.0 (yes I know that centos is not supported, but I have had no problems before from 5.x and up).
    It uninstalled everything and then during installation of core, it just informed about a serious rpm error and stopped with no mail system.
    A simple 7.1.4 reinstall was not possible - I had to do the complete restore.
    I am going to try again tomorrow and would be happy to get hints for debug output from the embedded rpm commands and/or the upgrade script itself in the upgrade wizard.

    Thanks
