It's been that kind of a day...my wife(who is OK) was sideswiped by a kid this morning and my favorite vehicle is probably totaled, this caused one kid to be an hour late to school, the other was home sick, about 5 minutes after the accident I start getting pages from work about a server catastrophe which ended up taking all day to fix when I finally got there, my clothes washer busted in the last 48 hours, there's snow coming through the roof of my fixer-upper I'm working on, AND the Realtor called and we are showing our house on Friday morning so we will have to spend every waking hour until then getting the house ready. I'm surprised my dog didn't die, my house didn't burn down, and my remaining car didn't just give up to spite me. I say all this to tell you....it was not a good day to try upgrading my home ZCS installation.
I'm running ZCS 5.0.0 OSS on my home mail server (CentOS4).
I have a bunch of other CentOS5 servers around in different places that I manage, so tonight when I went to upgrade to ZCS 5.0.1 I just downloaded the RHEL5 version of 5.0.1 instead of the RHEL4 version. Then like a dummy just went through and said (Y) to all the prompts instead of paying attention to what I was doing.
Well it got far enough in the install that all the old RHEL4 packages were uninstalled and new RHEL5 packages were installed....and then it bombed.
"floating point exception" I think was the error.
It was then that I realized the error of my ways. I didn't want to back out because I thought I'd lose my data. So I made a backup of /opt/zimbra (which I did not do the first time...so I can't go back now)....and tried to upgrade to the RHEL4 5.0.1 release. It bombed out before it did anything...again with the "floating point exception".
So now what? Upgrade the OS to CentOS5, try upgrading again and hope for the best? That's going to be no fun.
