    Default [SOLVED] Notebook and Briefcase contents do not sync with ZD 1.0.1 and Zimba Server 5

    Hello,

    With Zimbra Desktop 1.0.1 (zdesktop_1_0_build_1593_win32.exe) and Zimbra Server 5.0.5 (5.0.5_GA_2201.DEBIAN4.0 20080417013330 20080417-0135 FOSS), the folder structure for Documents and Briefcase sync up and down from Zimbra Server, but no contents sync.

    Bug 29773 – Support Notebook app and Briefcase app only discusses Zimbra Server versions > 5.0.5.

    Should Document and Briefcase syncing work with 5.0.5?

    Thanks,
    Tim

    First note that on upgrade from previous ZD beta builds: Existing tasks, documents, and briefcase items don't get immediately downloaded because we use a mailbox wide change sequence. However, edits or moves of existing items will trigger sync. (Obviously full reset of account data will also pull in old items as well.) This is a one time issue when we introduce new applications to desktop. (If really wanted to we could grab old, but since that only affects those coming from ZD Beta 2 and earlier in regard to tasks/docs/files it wasn't worth the additional code complexity to address it.)

    I could test versions for ya, but I'll wager you need to upgrade. ZCS 5.0.5 came out in March 08, and ZD B3 was 4 months later in July directly between ZCS 5.0.8 & 5.0.9 releases. From that bug it's evident there's version dependencies because of server side changes that needed to be made.

    When the server version is 5.0.6+:
    - downloads only the latest version of Notebook and Briefcase items from the server
    - uses soap API to sync notebook wiki pages

    When the server version is 5.0.9+:
    - downloads all the revisions for Notebook and Briefcase, so that the edit history is also in sync
    - can detect edit conflict for both WikiItems and Documents
    - uses TarFormatter and more efficient REST interface to sync documents and wiki.

    Lots of other good enhancements and bugfix reasons too upgrade to 5.0.16 anyways.

    Thanks for the input, Mike. I'll check on a server upgrade.

    Default An upgrade to 5.0.16_GA_2921 fixed syncing

    All syncing works with Zimbra Desktop after a server upgrade to 5.0.16_GA_2921.
