I brought this up in another thread but since I was piggybacking and haven't gotten an answer I'll try a new thread instead.
I'm trying to test backup replication and disaster recovery using Zimbra 5.0.10 NE and two Mac Minis as servers. However, one of the Minis is running Tiger and the other is running Leopard. It's not possible to install Tiger on the newer Mac Mini; I haven't tried upgrading the primary to Leopard yet.
Since I'm doing something similar to How to: cold standby server (no cluster), my first step is to create an identical Zimbra installation on the backup (Leopard) machine.
Note that on the primary (Tiger) machine, I'm running 5.0.10, while the backup (Leopard) is running the install called 5.0.10 BETA on Zimbra - Products: Network Edition Downloads
I've been trying to use the instructions at Moving ZCS to Another Server » Zimbra :: Blog to do the initial transfer of /opt/zimbra/ from the primary to the backup, but every time, the mta fails to start after I rerun the installer (the very last step). If I stop and start zimbra, I get
This is similar to what was reported in Upgrade OS X 10.4 to 10.5 breaks zimbra but although someone posted a link that ultimately led to Bug 21441 - Requesting Apple-Server (10.5, leopard) support for ZCS which is marked fixed...it isn't working for me.Starting mta...FAILED
postmap: fatal: file /opt/zimbra/postfix-18.104.22.168z/conf/main.cf: parameter mail_owner: user postfix has same user ID as _postfix
postalias: fatal: file /opt/zimbra/postfix-22.214.171.124z/conf/main.cf: parameter mail_owner: user postfix has same user ID as _postfix
postfix failed to start
So this raises two questions:
If the answer to (2) is "yes" then I can at least, hopefully, have two truly identical versions of zimbra even though the underlying OSes are different, which (again hopefully) would let them both work with the same /opt/zimbra/
- Has anyone successfully transferred an installation from the Tiger version of 5.0.10 to the Leopard Beta?
- Can the Leopard Beta be run under Tiger?
Any advice would be appreciated...
