    Default ZCS5 on FC5?

    I hope this hasn't been asked 100 times.
    Please point me to the answer:
    "Will ZCS 5 still run on FC 5?"
    I see guidelines that 5 will have FC7 support, but will I need to upgrade FedoraCore5 to FC7 to make Zimbra 5 work properly?

    Thanks for your patience.

    No, you'll need to upgrade to make sure that version 5 works at all. You may get it working but if you want a long term stable solution then my recommendation is to install CentOS or Ubuntu LTS, that way you won't be upgrading every six-months.

    Thanks, that's what I was thinking.

    Can you point me to any advice/tutorial on upgrading a production FC5 server running ZCS 4.x.x (OpenSource)...and installing Ubuntu, then ultimately upgrading to the final release ZCS v5?

    Thanks,
    rick

    Assuming that your new server will have the same IP address, DNS records pointing to it and the same hostname as the old server then the Blog article should see you through the move. There's also a few threads in the forums about moving to new hardware that might help.

    Thanks very much, Bill- Yes to those assumptions.
    I'll be installing in place, right over the old installation. This backup method, and the caveats to keep with the "old" version of ZCS... is pretty much exactly what I'm looking for.
    That ubuntu (LTS) looks like the answer to keep things in the openSource range of products.
    THis client that I'm working for on this, is very frugal, and wants to save whatever he can, wherever he can.
    (I'd love to get him to step up to the "NE" edition, but...not with the RHEL($) and the ZCS license fees($). )

    You guys are great.
    Thanks again,
    rick

    Installing on a Ubuntu 6.06 LTS server is also supported for NE.

    Will this tutorial work when changing OS's?

    I want to move from Fedora Core 5 to CentOS 5
