    Default 8.0.6 Stability?

    Has anyone experienced any stability issues or bugs with updating to 8.0.6? I know it addresses a private major security vulnerability, however I am always hesitant of moving to the newest versions of any software due to the "fix this / breaks that" effect.

    Any input would be appreciated, Thank you.

    That's a decision that only you can make, I have never had any problems upgrading to the most recent version of ZCS and 8.0.6 is no different. If you wish to leave your server open to the security vulnerability then don't upgrade, again that's your decision to make and it's specific to your environment.

    Yes. Since upgrading to 8.0.6 I see errors running zmlocalconfig. The first line of the output produces this:

    Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM warning: INFO: os::commit_memory() failed; error='Cannot allocate memory' (errno =12)

    Despite this being a warning, the problem is fatal because the error goes to stdout, not stderr, so whatever script wants to use zmlocalconfig's output fails because its output is syntactially incorrect. I am currently working around this with a hack:

    mv /opt/zimbra/bin/zmlocalconfig /opt/zimbra/bin/zmlocalconfig.real

    (
    echo '#!/bin/bash'
    echo 'echo /opt/zimbra/bin/zmlocalconfig $* >> /var/tmp/zmlocalconfig'
    echo '/opt/zimbra/bin/zmlocalconfig.real $* 2>&1 | fgrep -iv HotSpot'
    ) > /opt/zimbra/bin/zmlocalconfig

    chmod 755 /opt/zimbra/bin/zmlocalconfig
    cp /dev/null /var/tmp/zmlocalconfig

    It's ugly, but it works. You might have to change the mode of the tmp file, or elect not to debug this.

    Have you filed a bug report and if so, what's the number? Didn't you also mention that was related to your Ubuntu environment?

    I did not file a bug yet--I just upgraded two nights ago. The server is a fully-patched CentOS 6 server running version 6.5 64-bit, 6GB of RAM. All previous versions of Zimbra 8 ran great.

    I don't have a lot of users but I've experienced no problems at all since updating to 8.0.6. The only significant bug I can find filed against 8.0.6 claims that logging in with username only (as opposed to username@domain) doesn't work but it's working fine for me.

    I'm currently testing the upgrade process out on a separate virtual machine, I was unable to access the Admin console and even web mail itself even with all services are running.

    Here's what I ran into, and the appropriate fixes/workaround. I haven't went live with 8.0.6 yet but most likely will late tonight.

    - Stopped the Zimbra service and backed up our virtual machine.

    - Downloaded 8.0.6 and unpacked the files

    - Ran install.sh

    - ldap errored out with something along the lines of error 256(dont exactly remember)

    - fixed the permissions by "/opt/zimbra/libexec/zmfixperms -verbose -extended" which fixed the ldap error

    - Then amavis wouldn't start so I followed this Upgrade Zimbra Proxy from 8.0.2 to 8.0.6 Breaks things

    - The admin GUI and client side webmail wouldn't pull up. The ports were open and the services were all started also.

    - Reran install.sh and it completed 100% without any errors as far as I can tell

    - Everything seems fine now. Going to try to fix perms and edit amavisd.conf.in before upgrade so I will only have to run install.sh once tonight.

    Successfully upgraded to 8.0.6 without any issues last night. Here's exactly what I did,

    - Stopped the Zimbra service and backed up our virtual machine.

    - Downloaded 8.0.6 and unpacked the files

    - fixed the permissions by "/opt/zimbra/libexec/zmfixperms -verbose -extended"

    - Ran install.sh

    - Successfully ran and upgraded without any issues. No ldap error, no amavis issues. First run of install.sh was clean and successful. Hope this thread helps someone!
